The Riders of the Knights High Jewellery Collection pays tribute to medieval heroines through an immersive aesthetic drawn from medieval codes of chivalry and heraldic crests. At the heart of the Collection are exceptional jewels. A richly vibrant royal blue sapphire – the most regal of gemstones – takes centre stage in the Royaume choker to symbolise the protection of the Kingdom. Another piece, the Cavalière necklace, showcases spinel, a precious gem distinctive for its deep red colour and symbolising ardour and courage. On the Reine necklace, dazzling aquamarines of a Santa Maria-like blue evoke the magnificence of dynastic jewels and sovereign power.

Louis Vuitton presents Men's Artistic Director Virgil Abloh's first fashion jewellery collection.
This new jewellery collection encapsulates the contemporary mood of the Maison and embodies the new vocabulary that Virgil Abloh has introduced across all categories since his arrival at Louis Vuitton last year. The collection is a reinterpretation of classic menswear chains that debuted during his first show across various accessories and leather goods, introducing an entirely new Louis Vuitton chain. Inspired by classic Cuban links, it nods to wider cultural references, from hip-hop to skate culture and a dynamic community of collaborators.
Rooted in the heritage of men's jewellery, the chain has been twisted into a new, highly exclusive form through an inventive and meticulous use of materials and finishes. A multi-hued chain nods to the rainbow story which was central to the Spring-Summer 2019 Collection - a tribute to diversity and an open invitation to a new, global audience. It showcases an array of exceptional finishes, techniques and materials, which are carefully united together across the links. Coloured enamel in orange and blue tones, brass with aged gold effect, palladium finishing with Monogram engraving and crystal encrustations in a range of hues are all united across one chain.Virgil Abloh Accessories Menswear
Louis Vuitton unveils the Tambour Spin Time Air Collection with an all-new calibre, allowing for an ethereal display as if time were suspended in mid-air.
As playful as it is technical, the unrivalled, innovative Spin Time concept provides a fun way of reading the time thanks to an exclusive and patented calibre developed a decade ago. Instead of a central hand, these watches use twelve rotating cubes to display the hours. Every 60 minutes, the corresponding cube spins to reveal the next hour, while the previous hour simultaneously rotates to hide its numeral. This year, the master watchmakers at La Fabrique du Temps Louis Vuitton have further evolved the unique self-winding movement to be even more ethereal, with the cubes displaying the hour appearing to float in mid-air. These cubes have become veritable satellites, suspended between the calibre and the case, whose hidden sides can be seen through the transparent back along with the oscillating weight.
Each of the seven new Tambour Spin Time Air watches is housed in a white gold case, available in a variety of gemstone patterns, while the cubes themselves are set with diamonds or coloured stones, lacquered or satin-brushed.Tambour Timepieces Watches
