The Hermès Lignes Sensibles high jewelry collection is a true manifesto presented by Pierre Hardy, Creative Director of Hermès jewelry, with gracious radicality and a tradition reinvented to serve creativity. It is form that sculpts the material, that reveals radiance, that illuminates the precious stone.
“In my previous collections, the link with the body was achieved through metaphors, such as the chain. Here it is direct: the jewelry is closer than ever to the body itself. I wanted to return to this symbiosis: to be at one with the skin,” said Pierre Hardy, Creative Director of Hermès Jewelry.
This very contemporary and incredibly free-spirited collection goes as far as inventing a second skin. Circuits, drop stones and intricate geometric forms evoke organic cartography and compose a sensual world in which the body is exalted.
“I see these lines as radiating out from them. I like the idea that you can choose a different anatomy, reinvent an intimate sensory system, like a wave that is made visible and given form by jewelry,” Hardy said.
Hermès Lignes sensibles highlight stones in watercolor shades, emphasized by the softness of rose gold. Shades specific to the complexion, the lips, or the iris. The palette that emerges from this collection is natural, discreet and unique, featuring blue, pink or brown tourmalines, green-yellow prehnites, sapphires in shades of green-blue, yellow-orange or pastel pink, and brown diamonds.
