This would be the first-ever preview in the United States which is backed by the brand’s recognition of the U.S. as an international jewellery hub and its foresights in penetrating the U.S. market. by the great abstract artists, each unique piece is a celebration of iconic geometric oeuvres of the Modern Period. As Chow Tai Fook’s first collection inspired by the fine arts, Le Labyrinthe Artistique also marks the company’s latest milestone in its continuing journey as a leading world class jeweller and brand.Chow Tai Fook seeks to constantly elevate its High Jewellery series to new heights with its wealth of experience in world-class design, materials selection, and exquisite craftsmanship. The masters have channelled a distinct aesthetic into each unique piece, which were showcased at this exclusive event, offering a platform for sharing with privileged guests the brand’s ethos as a jeweller: the relentless pursuit of perfection.This year, with Le Labyrinthe Artistique, Chow Tai Fook has distilled the very essence of these artists’ works and given them new form through our unique interpretation and exceptional craftsmanship.The collection of 15 sets of jewellery presents an abstract maze in which color, form, and dimension unite in homage to the titans of abstract art.Highlighted Sets: — Les Blocs de Fantaisie (Piet Mondrian): The ordering principle of this
arresting work is linearity: The minimalist pieces pare down form to an
entirely flat plane where only the sharpest of lines and the rectangular
remains. As with Mondrian, color and space work in perfect harmony to
draw the eye to a shock of bright green tourmaline at the centre of each
piece. Surrounding them are iridescent blocks of rubies, sapphires,
diamonds and chalcedony outlined in a stunning grid lined by 18K yellow
gold. The representation of the three primary colors whimsically conveys
shimmering movement to project a sense of modern chic.
— Le Glissement du Flamant Rose (Alexander Calder): This series extends
the vision of Calder by creating suspended three-dimensional works.
Inspired by the floating “wings” of Calder’s masterpieces, this series
soars to new heights with the iconic visage of flamingo, the signature
motif in Chow Tai Fook’s high jewellery collections. The flamingo’s
flamboyance is portrayed through the vibrant contrast between delicate
color change sapphires in cushion and oval cuts, measuring 11.84,
13.13,10.02 and 7.31 carats, complemented by sapphire, ruby, pink
sapphire, color sapphire, black spinel and white diamond, set in 18K
white and rose gold. The fluttering feather design evokes the gracious
gliding motion of the majestic bird in flight, while color change
sapphires embody the flamingo’s mythical essence, lifting the
imagination beyond earthly beauty.
— Les Gouttes de Charisme (Josef Albers): Referencing Albers’ interwoven
aesthetics, this series projects a multi-dimensional effect through
extensive layering, while reciprocal reflections between 18K white gold
and a 5.3-carat princess-cut white diamond along with white diamonds in
cushion, baguette and round cuts intensify the dreamy ambiance. Eyes are
drawn to a curtain of exquisite diamonds that undulate like gentle
raindrops, insinuating a sense of temporality into the illusion to
highlight the charismatic presence.
