A Bejewelled Soiree

Chanel’s ultra luxe collection of fine baubles makes for delectable viewing

The roaring 1920s. The era when fashion, film, lifestyle, art, photography and philosophy tumbled together in refined bonhomie and consequently created a whole new language of style and elegance. Gabrielle Coco Chanel was undoubtedly one of the stars to emerge from that decade; infusing many an evening celebration with her restrained chic and individualistic ensembles that caused a flurry amongst aristocrats, artistes and the bourgeois alike. It is in homage to this period where one big party simply rolled into another that the house of Chanel lauds with their latest fine jewellery offering, aptly named Café Society. Comprising a selection of 14 sub-collections with harking-back-to-Gatsby titles such as Jazz, Charleston, Broadway, Smoking, Tuxedo, Midnight and Cruise to name a few, the baubles aim to stun as sautoirs and headpieces equally claim influence from Art Deco, geometrics, graphic lines and the eternal marriage of black and white. Let nostalgia shine again…
