Introducing LV Volt, Louis Vuitton's New Unisex Fine Jewellery Collection
Francesca Amfitheatrof, Louis Vuitton’s artistic director for watches and jewellery, manipulated the letters in a variety of ways to create modern, mix-and-match designs. The LV Volt range features a small v cradling a diamond incorporated within a capital L, which can be worn as a series of pendants in white, rose and yellow gold, all with an adjustable chain. In LV Volt, the L and V are combined to resemble a thunderbolt or pulse line, a design that is particularly striking when worn as a pendant set with diamonds and attached to a yellow gold chain; the same design is available as a bangle.
The letters are turned into a repeat stroke pattern in the Multi design, which is available as stacking rings that come in white and yellow gold, while the Mesh pattern has the L and V arranged to resemble a mesmerising pattern of triangles. A pair of diamond-shaped earrings in the Mesh pattern is one of the standout pieces. The LV Volt pattern intertwines the letters to create statement-making bracelets, earrings and necklaces—the bracelets are available in two widths that can be paired together for great effect.
Louis Vuitton introduced the collection in a campaign shot by photographer Jean-Baptiste Mondino and featuring actress and brand ambassador Alicia Vikander, painter Sharon Alexie, model Xiao Xing Mao and Hugo Marchand, principal dancer at the Paris Opera Ballet. Shot against a clean, pale blue background, the campaign features the stars rocking the LV Volt pieces, and an enviable athletic glow, while seemingly in movement.
The collection wasn’t made to sit idle in a jewellery box and has made its first red carpet appearance already, with French-British actress Stacy Martin wearing the LV Volt ring and a pair of LV Volt. earrings at the Venice Film Festival in early September, matched with an outfit from Louis Vuitton’s cruise 2021 collection.
