Adrien Dubost and his odd dialogue between Louis Vuitton luxury and Seventies design

Bravery, the High Jewellery collection – 90 pieces designed by Francesca Amfitheatrof. It took a global three-year search to source the sapphires, emeralds, rubies, diamonds and gemstones used on the pieces

Bravery, the High Jewellery collection – 90 pieces designed by Francesca Amfitheatrof for Louis Vuitton.
It took a global three-year search to source the sapphires, emeralds, rubies, diamonds and gemstones used on the pieces. 1700 gemstones were cut directly in one piece.

LV01 —The Arrow Earrings in white gold, two cushion-cut sapphires of 1.94 and 1.85 carat, custom-cut rubies for 0.36 carat, twenty custom-cut sapphires for 1.44 carat, sixteen custom-cut diamonds for 0.78 carat and twenty-two diamonds for 0.19 carat.

LV03 — a tribute to the birth of Louis on 4 August 1821, La Constellation d’Hercule references a constellation only visible at that time of year. It is depicted on a necklace: 209 carats of tanzanites, 50 carats of Australian opals and nearly 34 carats of tsavorites among the diamonds, Bravery Collection. LOUIS VUITTON has reduced the gold of the mount to the bare minimum, making a symphony of blue, green and purple sparkle. To increase the suppleness of the piece, the necklace ends with a diamond-set rope, reminiscent of those once used on trunks

LV04 — to represent the 400-kilometres journey of roads and forests that separates the Jura area from Paris, the Maison has created L’Aventure, a necklace with green Colombian emeralds – which took two years’ research to pair – combined with three rows of platinum, yellow gold and white gold, entirely pavé-set with diamonds. This Damier checkerboard stone marquetry has the presence of an LV Monogram Flower and a 5.21-carat DFL pear-shaped diamond. The necklace took over 1600 hours to complete.
