Gucci Earrings with cross pendant and lion
Set in the historic necropolis of Alyscamps in Arles, the Cruise 2019 show was imbued with references to punk, rock and gothic fashion. Models playing rock stars were intertwined with widows concealed under black veils, carrying bouquets of wilted blooms and cross pendant necklaces in hand. These earrings have a translucent effect that is reminiscent of stained glass windows. The colored enamel is applied to each individual cell using the elaborate plique-a-jour technique, a vitreous enameling process that dates back to the Byzantine Empire in 6th century AD and has been brought to jewelry by Art Nouveau artists.
