Saınt Laurent Debuts Fıne Jewelry Collectıon
At 62 Saint Laurent has just launched their first-ever fine jewelry collection. Anthony Vaccarello, the French Maison’s creative director, designed the collection of bracelets, cuffs, necklaces, and earrings following the sleek and linear designs of his ready-to-wear collections. Signature motifs, such as the Cassandre, the vertical YSL logo created in 1961, and Maillon, oversized links of chain, are cast in gold, diamonds, and other valuable materials. Like Saint Laurent’s past seasons, the two motifs exemplify the brand’s aesthetic which teeters on sleek and edgy. Though accessories have always been available for purchase, this collection, named “Saint Laurent Haute Joaillerie,” is the first to source fine metals.
The prices of the pieces vary drastically. Rings hover around the $800 range, chokers in the $4,000 range, and necklaces in the $1,000s. For those looking to spend big, the cuffs skyrocket up to around $42,000.
Metals have played a part in Vaccarello’s ready-to-wear collections, often contrasting the black-and-white color palette used for shirts, blazers, and other pieces of clothing. For the campaign, this is exemplified by models who appear to be gardening in gossamer black fabrics and pieces from the fine jewelry collection.
