The pyramid of the Louvre is transformed into the 1989 collection by Alfieri & St.John ♦ ︎
The years of Alfieri & St.John do not pass as for the rest of the world. In fact, the Italian fashion house reborn a few years ago has the habit of making the years eternal: to each one is in fact dedicated to a collection. For example, 1989 is the name of a collection dedicated to an event linked to art and architecture. In particular, at the inauguration in Paris of the Pyramide of the Musée du Louvre. This it is, like, millions of tourists and art lovers know, a huge glass and steel prism designed by architect Ieoh Ming Pei. From this pyramid placed in the courtyard of the Louvre, the former royal palace in the heart of Paris, you access the halls of the most famous museum in the world.
The 1989 collection by Alfieri & St.John takes the shape of the pyramid for its jewels.
The collection, in fact, consists of bracelets, rings, earrings and necklaces that use the same geometric volume, the pyramid. The jewels are in yellow, white or pink gold, with small diamonds aligned on part of the surface. To give a further touch of color is added the black, fuchsia or orange enamel. Lavinia Andorno
