Following similar moves made by Prada, Gucci, and Balmain in recent years, Saint Laurent has announced its official entry into fine jewelry with its Saint Laurent Haute Joaillerie collection.
“They are at once novel and suited for endless future use regardless of seasons and trends,” the brand writes of the collection.
Led by Belgian fashion designer and YSL creative director Anthony Vaccarello, the series includes a number of timeless accessories crafted in precious metals and diamonds. The brand’s iconic motifs, including the vertical Cassandre “YSL” log and Maillon link symbols, are incorporated in seamless ways without compromising the functionality of the pieces. The lookbook, shot by Juergen Teller, pictures select pieces, including thick cuffs, rings, and bangles stacked against a lush natural backdrop.
Saint Laurent’s Fine Jewelry pieces will be available at select flagship stores worldwide. Prices range from around $800 USD up to $40,000 USD.
