LOUIS VUIT­TON’S GREAT ES­CAPE

World - - CONTENTS -

A LUSH JEW­ELLERY COL­LEC­TION TAKES ITS CUE FROM ART DECO’S STREAM­LINE MODERNE MOVE­MENT.

Louis Vuit­ton’s “Acte V – The Es­cape” col­lec­tion ex­plores and brings a new per­spec­tive on the let­ter V, the iconic sig­na­ture of the Mai­son’s High Jew­ellery. The col­lec­tion dis­cov­ers post-de­pres­sion art deco style: the Stream­line Moderne move­ment with its re­fined shapes, flow­ing forms, pure lines and dy­namic curves. Inspired by en­gi­neer­ing re­search into speed, the Stream­line style was es­pe­cially used to de­sign planes and cruise lin­ers, but also trains, cars and air­ships, re­flect­ing a de­sire for dis­cov­ery and ex­plo­ration. As with the Stream­line style and its clean lines, the V is mul­ti­fac­eted. Burst­ing with ab­strac­tion, it merges sev­eral shapes, ex­press­ing, de­ploy­ing and free­ing it­self with­out los­ing its strength.

Capri ear­rings: white gold, white di­a­monds and two opals.
