With a commanding performance at Jazz at Lincoln Center on the day following NYFW,Hermès made the New York debut of their newest line, the Enchaînement Libres collection.
The pieces, characterized by exaggerated form, are definitely meant for someone looking to make a statement. From large necklaces dripping in fine jewels to bracelets of intertwining knots of gold and diamonds, these pieces aren't for the faint of heart. They showcase a playful, yet refined, take on accessorizing in style and the free-form elegance of these pieces make them stand out.
The freeform style also translated to the performance, choreographed by Christian Rizzo, that showcased the collection. As models, dressed in all-black ensembles, walked around an elevated stage decked out in accessories steeped in gold, diamonds, and precious jewels, dancers put on a contemporary performance, which culminated in the models taking the stage to show off the pieces.
The collection, designed by Creative Director of Hermès jewelry Pierre Hardy, centered around the chain and incorporated nautical themes in addition to nods to their heritage as a saddler company. The pieces are characterized by exaggerated form, highlighted by varying shapes and textures—opals, pearls, jade, and even titanium—that make each a true statement piece worthy for any luxury event.
The prices for these pieces are available upon request.
