Boucheron - Opalescence brooch & earring

Boucheron High Jewellery 2021- Carte Blanche Holographique

 捕捉瞬息万变的美好意向,以无言记录时间的轨迹,将昙花乍现的短暂美丽化为永恒,这是法国高级珠宝世家宝诗龙创意总监Claire Choisne一直坚持的创作主旨。继展现浩瀚天空的纯净无暇后,Claire被吸引着进一步探索,深入至奇幻光影这一主题中。如同彩虹悬浮于天空之上梦幻灵动的时刻,足以唤起令人心生愉悦与纯真的独特魅力。多年来创意总监Claire Choisne不断探寻色彩对于宝诗龙的真正意义,但正是在偶然的交叠中,当阳光衍射成无数的电光原子时,她寻找到色彩与光影的真谛。受艺术家Olafur Eliasson及建筑师Luis Barragan启发,这个以全息光影为主题的高级珠宝系列,每件珠宝珍品都流光溢彩、匠心独运,于光影交错间幻化为自由万象。

To capture the beauty of the ephemeral, transcribing its fleeting emotion without words, this is the challenge that Claire Choisne, Creative Director at Maison Boucheron, once again set herself. After evoking the moving beauty of the sky, Claire was drawn to take her quest further, deeper into the theme of light and its power to change one’s surroundings. More specifically, that suspended, unexpected moment, when a rainbow appears, evoking a sweet euphoria teeming with emotions and memories of innocence. While her search to define the significance of color for Boucheron has lasted many years, it is in the magic of this accidental crossing, when sunbeam diffracts into myriad, electric atoms, that she has found the solution. Claire Choisne was inspired by the work on light and color by artist Olafur Eliasson and architect Luis Barragan. It is not now a question of choosing a shade, for they are all represented on each piece of jewelry across this High Jewelry collection that places the holographic as it central theme.

The collection encompasses nine sets, which include twenty-five unique pieces that delve into the very roots of this photosensitive phenomenon and its Greek etymology, which means ‘to represent everything’. While the iridescent reliefs of opal initially outline the contours of this natural hyper-pigmentation, the workshops of the 26 Vendôme Maison have had to surpass their own limits to explore the full richness of this mirage. By spraying precious metals at high temperature onto ceramics or rock crystal, they have succeeded in recreating a natural magic through a process that is able to cement what is traditionally a fleeting moment in time. This is truly a tour de force of creative audacity taken to its climax; even to the point of having to forego complete mastery over the end result – ever-changing structures which are destined to vary depending on brightness, the viewing angle and contrast with the skin, the effects and influence of which all evolve over time. A radical and euphoric release, which goes against the particular discipline which defines French High Jewelry, except of course, it matches the very spirit advocated by Frédéric Boucheron. The freedom to create above all else.
