hermes fine jewerly like a second skin

- 201002

Pierre Hardy, creative director of jewellery at Hermes since 2001, offers a collection as "close as possible to the skin to try to show on the outside, in a very sophisticated and discreet way, what is happening on the inside," he explained to the NYT on a video call last week.

Captured beautifully by photographer Ange Leccia, the 45-piece collection called "Lignes Sensibles" (or Sensitive Lines) is meant to be expressive, intimate and often sensual. Choosing to also echo the meridians and carefully considerate of other body energy points, such as the chakras, the designer seeks to reinvent these sensitive areas adorning them with gems known to amplify natural radiance.

"[...] I needed to have this quiet collection, these objects that listen to you, that pay attention to you — almost like pieces that care about you.”
