The electrifying new LV Volt jewellery collection by Artistic Director, Watches and Jewellery for Louis Vuitton, Francesca Amfitheatrof puts a modern spin on the capital L and V letters. The sharp angles of these iconic initials take shape as a unit of measure of its own tempo, adhering to a metaphor for movement, momentum, and a symbol of speed. Pure architectural design defines this powerful, boldly graphic collection that transcends borders, style, and binary codes of gender.
The LV Volt Collection was made to mix, match and stack seamlessly as multiple interpretations within the 33-piece selection offer an infinite series of combinations. Five distinct chapters define the totality of the range comprised of The LV Volt One, LV Volt Multi, LV Volt Mesh, LV Volt Curb Chain and LV Volt Upside Down.
LV Volt Collection
The LV Volt One and LV Volt Multi showcase the L and V in their pure form. Clean lines sear through designs generating pointed angles within, allowing brilliant gold and fiery diamonds complement each other. The two capital letters merge, split apart, unite in links, intertwine, and interact in varied forms that parody the thriving pulse and rhythm of life in an artful exploration of light and space.
Meanwhile, the LV Volt Mesh and LV Curb Chain raise the bar with monumentally intricate workmanship. The L and V morph into chain links reflecting a myriad of textures, volumes, finishes and dimensions. The repetition of initials, one set after another, emerge as prismatic structures.
The collection closes with the LV Volt Upside Down. An escape from the abstract, the two letters transform into claws to be stacked on fingers. A true allegory for motion, the jagged lines of bracelets and pendants mimic the zigzag of an electrical current or musical beat.
With each piece of jewellery, Louis Vuitton’s wealth of savoir faire gives way to a contrast between precise lines and sharp edges with soft, smooth contours. This decidedly unisex collection draws on the House’s cherished abstract art forms to fuel its energy, making it ideally suited for a trendsetter out to march to the beat of their own drum.
