This mesmerising, exclusive nautical collection is an ode to Gabrielle Chanel’s time aboard the Flying Cloud yacht (belonging to her lover, the second Duke of Westminster – the very same who introduced her to tweed). Chanel shows us that it’s okay to have fun with high jewellery in this line infused with elements of intrigue, romance and freedom of the open sea. Knots, sailor tattoos, and floats are among the quirky motifs seen in this white gold, sapphire and diamond-encrusted dream.
