Sculpted in pure gold, the quilted motif this time yields a collection of rings and a cuff bracelet with generous lines and a feminine, radical look. The quilted effect, indistinguishable from Chanel’s style, is a legendary motif whose story is written in needlework… It’s said that Gabrielle was inspired by one of her afternoons spent at the races – there, the jackets of the race jockeys captured her aesthetic eye. Others recount that this inspiration comes from the couch at her domicile on rue Cambon. Regardless of which version is true, today the quilted motif is coming to life in silver and gold.
To incarnate this collection’s apparent lines, the double-C brand is betting on Keira Knightley. The new face of Chanel jewelry, this actress has already played the role of muse, mischievous for Rouge Coco, insubordinate for the perfume Coco Mademoiselle. A longtime friend of the brand, now Keira Knightley is affirming, in true Chanel fashion, all the tension of a woman who is firmly at the reigns of her own destiny. With quilted motif rings on her fingers, the actress appears lounged out and highlights a gold and diamond cuff bracelet. A very apparent incarnation of Chanel’s spirit, this campaign shot by Mario Testino subtly highlights the graphic chic of the Coco Crush collection’s jewelry. Lined up for fall 2016, the natural elegance and whispered allure of Keira Knightley in Chanel jewelry pieces is sure to work wonders.
