Victoria & Yo: When the Bag is a Jewel

PARIS , Jun 14, 2010 / FW/ — An original collection that delivers today’s taste courtesy of elegant gestures from the past, the Victoria & Yo jewelry and accessories collection blurs the line between the two.

Precious objects would be a better moniker for these bags, hair wear, cuffs and earrings because they have the double duty of looking beautiful while being functional at the same time.

A rigid bag in black lacquer or gold metal guilloche or silver, or in crocodile… a simple flick of the thumb and the bag opens, revealing an iPhone and other things like a lipstick or credit card holder held in their own compartments.

It was as if with a click we traveled from the first half of the 20th century to the first decade of the 21st century. And then, we’re back to that world again, when smoking is allowed because, out came a cigarette holder even a lighter. Oh, how politically incorrect, delicious sounding as it is.

And then, we quietly slides into the world of sci-fi and futurism but continue to bring the elegance and charm. A cuff bracelet is also a compact mirror and incorporated into a cabochon gem, a style that even Wonder Woman would love.

A very feminine collection which draws its codes slightly rushed, in a seduction assumed, very Parisian.
Jewellery and accessories has a story to tell and a quotient desirability that is still intact!
