"Stellar Times" is the second high jewellery collection designed by Francesca Amfitheatrof, Artistic Director of Jewellery for Louis Vuitton.
The pieces feature a unique and spectacular vision of the universe. Through seven extraordinary themes, the House journeys to the far reaches of a powerful galaxy where exquisite coloured stones highlighted with gold, sculpt an utterly contemporary jewellery odyssey, mirroring the deepest desires of the Louis Vuitton woman.
"This theme is inspiring because of the artistic value in stones embodying planets, but I am also fascinated by the immensity of the cosmos, by journeying through space and by this feeling of wonder at all the beauty of the universe," says Francesca Amfitheatrof, "Some of the best astronauts are now women. And very soon we will be able to travel to Mars. The brand reflects these incredible advances, and has always been a daring pioneer in travel and adventure."
This unbridled spirit, this drive to explore unknown territories, is the trademark of Louis Vuitton. Since 2008 when it made its debut in the world of high jewellery, the House has constantly endeavored to develop a style that is both striking and very assertive.
The 90 pieces that make up the universe of Stellar Times are the most shining examples of that boldness and determination. Diamonds, opals, sapphires, rubies, emeralds, spinels and tourmalines – all of outstanding quality – form a magnetic constellation whose attraction is utterly irresistible. The final journey for Louis Vuitton is into the galaxies of the future.
