A jewellery collection designed to reflect the intricacies of a handwoven Scottish cloth might sound like a near impossible creation. But Chanel's latest high jewellery collection, Tweed de Chanel, is a vision of detailed magnificence that does exactly that.
Inspired by Coco Chanel's affirmed taste for the fabric, Tweed de Chanel translates the depth, richness and beautiful irregularity of tweed into 45 striking pieces. Perfectly cut diamonds, pearls and sapphires are layered and woven together using special articulation techniques that create stunning textured effects, breathing life into solid gold and silver with effortless elegance and suppleness.
A series of rings, necklaces, bracelets and watches embrace the distinctive pattern of the Parisian powerhouse, each uniquely embellished with precious stones. The tweed fabric has firmly planted itself at the heart of Chanel's legacy, being a personal favourite of Mademoiselle Chanel herself, who was also the first designer to borrow tweed from menswear and implement it into womenswear.
Now, Tweed de Chanel has elevated the maison's precious fabric to the status of an icon, fusing the creativity and expression of Chanel High Jewellery with the timeless elegance of the rich Scottish cloth.
