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.
