Louis Vuitton recently celebrated its commitment to making dreams come true with a bespoke exhibition at the new Atlantis The Royal in Dubai. Named Crafting Dreams, the exhibition was an opportunity to create a dream world for clients across different rooms and experiences. The exhibition included a bespoke high jewelry space featuring Louis Vuitton’s finest and most thoughtful pieces.
The Louis Vuitton Spirit Chapter II collection entices the dreams of women everywhere via mesmerizing and illuminating designs. The fourth high jewelry collection designed by artistic director Francesca Amfitheatrof, it is is the successor to the maison’s Spirit collection revealed last year. It continues the late Vuitton’s odyssey into the next chapter with 30 unique pieces, which harmonize across four universes that reflect the maison’s values: Liberty, Destiny, Fantasy, and Radiance.
Inspired by Vuitton’s sense of freedom, the Liberty theme explores the brand’s independence through seven bold creations. Each intricate piece is crafted around custom-cut and LV Monogram cut diamonds, remaining unmistakable. A token of liberation, it sits like a coat of armor, and houses more than 195 custom-cut diamonds, each interlocking to create a bespoke pattern across the décolletage. The white gold and platinum necklace is adorned with a 4.84ct Colombian emerald and a 2.02ct Monogram flower-cut diamond.
The Louis Vuitton V symbolizes the iconic Maison and its legacy; which inspires the Destiny theme with 10 bold yet delicate feminine designs. The pieces also serve as an ode to the ruby, which emits a luminous and mesmerizing power, representing the destiny of Louis Vuitton. The LV Monogram star-cut diamond in this breathtaking necklace features a 3.13ct pear-cut ruby alongside 34 additional rubies suspended from the piece. Lined in an assemblage of repeated V’s interlocking one another, this necklace is an emblem of the brand and its exquisite design.
The dream-crafting continues within the Fantasy theme, embodying the maison’s imagination and creative vision that continues to break the boundaries of reality. The Fantasy two-strand necklace entwines geometric V designs and chevrons in a high-shine white gold. Adorned with two LV Monogram star-cut diamonds, the necklace boasts diversity and can be worn in numerous ways. The closing theme of the Spirit Chapter II Collection is described as Radiance. Inspired by Amfitheatrof’s imagination of jewelry as armor, this theme highlights women’s audacious energy. The radiance necklace is courageous with solid and bold graphic design, while mirrored yellow-gold takes form with a geometry of pyramids, triangles, and diamond-paved V’s, and a 17.48ct Mandarin Garnet.
