Hermès has launched its latest high jewellery collection, Les Jeux de l'Ombre, with a campaign playing on light and shadow, shot by photographer Elizaveta Porodina.
Pierre Hardy, the house’s creative director of jewelry for over two decades, has yet again artfully created a collection of 53 pieces continuing Hermès’ legacy of fine craftsmanship dating all the way back to 1837.
According to Hermès “the collection relates the movement of shadow and its relationship with light, and the contrasts that connect them.” Light plays a vital role in exhibiting jewelry by contributing to its overall beauty and vividness as it holds the ability to capture the countless hues, contours, and textures. Seldom do we hear mentioned its reverse side and shadow. Hardy's encapsulated the themes of the intangible shadows and their relationship to light for his seventh collection.
“We always talk about light and sparkle in jewelry, so I wanted to take the opposite approach,” Hardy explains.
‘Les jeux de l’ombre’ is showcased at the 24, Faubourg Saint-Honoré Store in Paris from July 7-30, 2022.
