Hermès is recongnised for many of it’s symbols such as the horse drawn carriage and the H clasp, but you also can’t mistake the chunky chain print on their scarves.
This chain, which also draws on the house’s origins as a harness-maker and saddler as well as the nautical world, has now been re-imagined into a bold new high-jewellery line named Enchaînements Libres. The design is at the centre of the stylistic message, and materials are designed to showcase the best of the precious stone and the Maison’s craftsmanship.
Pierre Hardy, creative director of Hermès jewellery, takes the elementary structures of a chain and explores the sculptural possibilities by working them into anamorphic compositions, playing with scale and the architectural forms. Resulting in 29 variants, the pieces are designed to blend with the wearers body and their movements.
