Designed by the Creative Director Alessandro Michele and showcased in a campaign featuring Jodie Turner-Smith, the new Gucci High Jewelry collection is presented in a series of images with a dedicated film shot by Glen Luchford, evoking the glamour of Hollywood.
Named Hortus Deliciarum, Latin for ‘Garden of Delights’, Gucci’s High Jewelry collection draws on the symbolic motifs that are dear to Alessandro Michele and Gucci, taken from the extensive and multifarious canon of the House’s iconography.
The collection comprises more than 130 pieces, largely one of a kind, and its motifs revolve around four themes. Gucci’s ‘hortus’ (or ‘garden’) of jewels is inhabited by magical beasts and flowering with totemic symbols of nature, distilling the poetry of the past with the beauty of the present.
The High Jewelry collection combines Italian craftsmanship with the romantic and poetic narrative of Gucci. Each gemstone has been fastidiously chosen for its quality and uniqueness, speaking to the painstaking attention to detail that Gucci creations are known for. In an array of pieces, the world of nature brings to life a collection redefined with maximalist allure.
