As one of this collection’s star embellishments, beads adorn every look. By turns transparent or iridescent, they multiply with the models’ every passage. These rivers of pearls are a tribute to the personal style of Gabrielle Chanel. Worn in random layers, lengths and sizes, they catch the light and illuminate the fabrics. Translucent earrings are shaped like a water droplet or embellished with tiny beads; multi-strand bracelets, pearlescent sautoirs in gradations of blue and a necklace-belt illustrate the endless range and possibilities of beads.
