Le Style en Héritage

Porté Couture

is a tribute to Haute Couture. With parents who were
both drapers, Frédéric Boucheron's childhood was
infused with memories of all kinds of fabric and materials.

With this Mantle of Light, Boucheron pushes back the boundaries that separate jewellery from clothing.
It was entirely created on a dressmaker's dummy to ensure perfect fit, drape and suppleness, and its elements are interconnected by a woven mesh of golden thread. From the chiselled cut of the overall piece to the delicacy of its twisted chains inset with diamonds, this Mantle of Light stretches the limits of jewellery-making further than ever.

A mantle of light, a ripple of diamonds, a graphic ribbon made of emeralds and rubies – an array of pieces to wear like precious garments.
Is it bejewelled couture, or hand-sewn jewellery? Here, the realms of Haute Couture and High Jewellery come together and fuse into one, with no way of telling which has the upper hand.
