With her new High Jewelry collection, Claire Choisne, Creative Director of Maison Boucheron, aimed to seize the intangible by revealing the fleeting beauty of the natural world.
Grasp a piece of sky. follow the movement of a cloud. watch a raindrop fall. be mesmerized by a feather’s swirling flight.
“For years, I have wanted to capture the ephemeral, to convey the poetry of present moments, the purity of the sky, light effects. The jeweler’s art is about stopping time in its tracks, making instants eternal when, by their very essence, they are not”.
“CONTEMPLATION is a theme that is really dear to my heart. It is quite personal in fact.” Claire Choisne – Creative Director.
Comprising sixty-seven pieces, the new Boucheron Contemplation represents the most personal and intimate collection of High Jewelry ever created by Claire Choisne. Both dandelions and feathers represent lightness and purity, key inspiration of this collection.
The codes of Boucheron are interpreted with an extremely sensorial approach: pieces seem to quiver with the slightest breath on the skin, fragments of stars are caught in airy matter, a cloud of diamonds swirls on a weightless necklace.
“We started from a cotton maquette placed on a bust, that we scanned. With the help of a programmer, we then created an algorithm generating thousands of 3D dots picturing a cloud, and worked on it until we found the perfect cloud,” added Claire Choisne.
The first jeweler to open on place Vendôme now invites us to reconnect with our senses in order to appreciate what is most precious: the present moment.
