Championing the French house’s iconic signs and symbols, the collection foregrounds personal discovery and inner adventure
On August 19, Louis Vuitton will launch new iterations of its Empreinte Fine Jewelry line. The original collection was designed in 2004, distinctive for its designs deriving from the French house’s emblematic codes. Francesca Amfitheatrof, Artistic Director of Jewelry and Watches for Louis Vuitton, took on the task of bringing the line into modern light.
For the collection, 18k yellow, white, and rose gold pieces are etched with impressions of trunk studs, as well as the LV initials and openworked monogram flowers. Overlapping laces in rings and bracelets represent the relationships between loved ones, and are reminiscent of the leather straps that fasten the house’s iconic luggage. Louis Vuitton’s iconic four-petalled flower makes an appearance on medallions intended as modern talismans, and long necklaces convert to multi-strand bracelets or are stacked upon themselves, providing functionality and flexibility.
