Fantastical Jewels by Francesca
Text by Stefania Amfitheatrof
Foreword by Cate Blanchett
Rizzoli New York
Artistic Director of Jewelry and Watches for Louis Vuitton, Francesca Amfitheatrof brings a new perspective to the ancient art of jewelry design creating revolutionary collections for the Maison. Operating in the heart of Paris, she approaches each of them following a theme, as a storyteller would approach a novel, but written in the oldest materials on our planet - diamonds, coloured stones and golds.
This book offers an enthralling glimpse into four of these extraordinary jewelry collections, meticulously detailing the alchemical journey from raw materials and inspiration to the refined jewel. Written in a journal-like style and adorned with exclusive sketches, gouaches, collages, and personal photographs, Fantastical Jewels showcases how Amfitheatrof has breathed modernity into the time-honoured craft of jewelry-making. It unveils the seamless alignment of her personal odyssey and creative ingenuity with the pioneering and visionary spirit of Louis Vuitton, a brand deeply rooted in luggage and travel. Collaborating with acclaimed art director Fabien Baron, Amfitheatrof has masterfully created a strikingly personal volume that mirrors her unique artistic prowess, encapsulated within an unparalleled and luxurious package, featuring a ribbon-tie closure and vellum inserts.
