NA­TURE TRIOMPHANTE

Adorn - - SHINING LIGHT -

In 1858, when he set up shop un­der the ar­cades of the Palais Royal, Frédéric Boucheron used to ob­serve the ivy that rose over the house frontages of Paris. This vi­sion of a na­ture that is tri­umphant and free pro­vided an en­dur­ing in­spi­ra­tion to Boucheron – na­ture was en­cap­su­lated in asym­met­ri­cal and un­tamed forms, wind­ing around wrists and necks, twin­ing be­tween fin­gers, and slid­ing onto ears.

This year, Boucheron no longer seeks to do a faith­ful re­pro­duc­tion of na­ture. The Plume de Paon, an iconic de­sign of the brand, re­works the pea­cock feather mo­tif to bestow the shape with light­ness and fol­low the curves of a woman’s body, and the ivy theme has also been re­worked with di­a­monds and black spinels to achieve a graphic ef­fect.
