Hermès’s latest high jewellery collection, Lignes Sensibles, presents sculptural creations that bring new meaning to body ornamentation. Designed to caress the skin and embrace the body with its bold silhouettes, the 45-piece range by Creative Director of Hermès Jewellery Pierre Hardy marries avant-garde lines (inspired by circuits and grids) with sensuous and generously sized cabochon gems in the softest hues—to results that defy expectations of what high jewellery should look like. “The entire collection is oriented towards intimacy,” says Hardy. “I was thinking of the effervescence of certain emotions, of the abandonment to pleasure. The pieces sit in places that are connected to desire, creating an eroticism that inevitably reinterprets the body.”
