The enchanting Château de Penthes, and its breath-taking views of Lake Geneva and the Alps,played host to a cocktail party, where Piaget’s latest creations were presented for the first time to an international guest list.
Supermodel Bar Rafaeli, who is also a friend of the brand, and Italian fashion muse, Bianca Bandolinid’Adda,showcased the most luxurious sets from the highjewellery collection. Grammy nominated American jazz singer and Piaget ambassador, Melody Gardot – who also wore pieces from the range – delighted guests with an intimate performance.
The exceptional collection features 100 watches and high jewellery pieces, each capturing Yves Piaget’s love of roses – a passion also shared byJoséphine de Beauharnais, Empress of France and first wife of Napoléon Bonaparte, who in the early 19th century dedicated many years to the cultivation of one of the largest rose collections in the gardens of the Château de Malmaison.
The pieces were displayed in a romantic setting with large lithographs of the Château de Malmaison, accentuated with vibrant pink Yves Piaget roses to portray femininity, grace and modernity of the new designs.
The glamorous Piaget Rose Passion creations, with their luminous precious stones, are designed to be worn in different ways, whether as a tiara, a cuff-watch ora secret watch and are manufactured entirely in Piaget’s jewellery workshops.
Rose carved, inlaid roses and roses like lace are the three variations that beautifully depict the flower, which has also become the symbol of Piaget. It is a recurrent theme in the new collection, which is available in all Piaget boutiques across the Middle East region.
