Gucci: Hortus Deliciarum (Garden of Delights) New High Jewellery Collection

Gucci's creative director Alessandro Michele introduces his second high jewellery with Jodie Turner Smith staring the collection. The collection, encompassing over 130 pieces, comprises of distinctive spectrum of colour and bold design signs to Hurts Deliciarum (Garden of Delights) for jewellery both classic and bought with investment in mind. Michele's inspiration comes from changing nature, of the sky, drawing rising clouds in the waves, vivid slopes of colour and graphic constellations in precious gems.

Michele's high jewellery collection for Gucci is divided into four parts, the first part takes natural landscapes as the focus, outlining crashing waterfalls in a torrent of diamonds and rethinking windswept forests into seductive, curving silhouettes. In Michele’s kaleidoscopic aesthetic of excess and familiar iconography fantasy world, leaves tremble on diamond branches and comets shoot across a diamond-speckled sky. Michele nods to the free-flowing forms of the Twenties with fringed and tasselled necklaces and chandelier earrings sprinkled with voluptuous orbs of precious stones.
