The incredible Swiss maison revealed its collection at an intimate gathering including friends of the house, Diane Kruger, Claire Foy, Daniela Melchior and His Highness Sawai Padmanabh Singh.
There was a gala dinner followed by a dazzling performance by the artist Craig David to mark the occasion.
The 52-piece collection was crafted from start to finish by Piaget’s in-house ateliers. Those include 41 pieces of jewellery and 11 watches, which are divided into two chapters: Azureia and Beautanica.
Yves Piaget unveiled the house’s first-ever “21st Century Collection” in 1969, with extravagant jewellery and watch designs which pushed the boundaries of craftsmanship and artistry.
This year, the collection is reborn as“ Metaphoria ”, a dazzling metaphor for nature and the breathtaking metamorphoses that take place within it.
“ Our goal was to emphasise details that call to mind natural phenomena, such as the flow of a waterfall or the rays of the sun, while inspiring a particular emotion, explains Stéphanie Sivrière, creative director at Piaget. “The materials we use, from insect elytra to precious wood, were selected to bring an unpredictable, living element to a piece of 21st century high jewellery,” she continued.
