【Panorama優雅卓見】I have a crush...on myself:Chanel Coco Crush 珠寶系列

2020-04-03

Crush,代表的不只是愛,而是大膽、勇敢的愛,但當中又很微妙,溫柔又帶點脆弱。正是如此,有愛的人才是真正的勇者。

Coco Crush珠寶系列糅合了Chanel女士對自由精神跟愛情的追求:在設計上,線條同時柔滑又充滿力量,菱格紋設計帶出Chanel的經典,配合珠寶的圓滑線條,別具個性。

Coco Crush系列就如Chanel女士當年的傑作,鏗鏘道出:「愛情,由你自己開始。」最新推出的Coco Crush Slim Ring系列更將自由推向新的領域:如何表達個性是自我的一個選擇,而在Coco Crush的世界,這個選擇及配搭是無窮無盡的,在沒有限制的情況下,佩戴者更要清楚了解自己的個性,要更勇於表達自己,才可好好發揮Coco Crush系列珠寶的精髓。正如代表一個人的兩面的這兩位模特兒Asha跟Ronya,自己美好、甜美的一面當然比較容易接受,但強勢,甚至有點黑暗的一面同時不容忽視;沒有這兩面,一個人不會完整。所以,要真正的自由,就先要have a crush on yourself,要同時愛上不同面向的自己。正如每種佩戴Coco Crush珠寶的方式,毫不含糊表現你的個性,展示自由以及敢作敢為的嚮往。所以,千萬不要害羞,即管將創意show off,將Coco Crush的large、small及mini版本配搭展現個性,the more the merrier!

在Chanel的字典裏,Coco Crush的獨有意思是「法式情懷與狂熱迷戀的結合」。2015年面世的Coco Crush珠寶系列隨即讓大家都跟Coco Crush戀愛了;到了2016年,Chanel亦為系列添上另一位iconic的新成員:beige gold的Coco Crush戒指。繼上年推出幼身的open bangle款式後,今年,Coco Crush的家族再次擴大:新成員是讓mix n’ match層次感更豐富的mini version戒指,將large、small及mini版本的戒指及手鐲疊在一起,加上不同款式的Coco Crush頸鏈跟耳夾或耳環,the more the merrier!

Chanel的beige gold米色金的特色就要從品牌的DNA說起,說到最長青的手袋顏色就必非黑色與米色莫屬。最初Chanel女士創出一系列的現代女性時裝時,她的目的就是要打破女性在着裝上的限制,要解除女裝在行動上及風格上的綑綁,所以在造型上除了會為女士們造出方便行動的衫及褲,顏色上黑色跟米色亦是她的go-to之一。Beige gold是Chanel時裝美學的代表色彩,品牌的高級珠寶將其發揚光大:Chanel珠寶的beige gold是絕無僅有的顏色,它不是玫瑰金,也非粉紅金或黃金,米色金就是獨特色調自成一格,配襯其他顏色相得益彰,更能突顯出Chanel獨有的風格:因為Chanel女士一向追求的都不是時尚,而是每位女士都應有的別樹一格。

想像Coco Crush就是Chanel女士為大家寫信寫訊息時的下款「XX」,呈「X」狀的菱格紋既是love的意思,更是Coco Crush系列的主題圖案,亦代表未知之事。你下一個迷戀的對象是甚麼?菱格紋的歷史源於Chanel女士的細心和對馬術的熱愛,取材自騎師的馬鞍座墊:基於舒適度,騎師的外套及馬鞍均會用上讓衣物變得更貼服的菱格紋設計;因此,將此元素放在珠寶系列上亦有相似效果,而菱格紋亦相繼於Chanel不同系列的珠寶及高級珠寶上出現,包括最早期於1993年的作品Matelassé Perle、1998年面世至今的Matelassé以交叉刻線及珍珠創出獨一無二的設計、以及2016年以菱格紋為主元素而創出的Signature de Chanel 高級珠寶系列。Coco Crush之所以吸引,是因為設計簡約得來卻絕不簡單,每個線條都經深思熟慮過。Coco Crush是Chanel女士對愛情的追求,縱觀Chanel女士的性格,Coco是她的名字,她的人生格言就是衝動不存,何來靈性?而Crush的意思卻是靈性不存,何來衝動?戴上Coco Crush珠寶系列,化身Coco Chanel,擁抱自己的不同面向,愛自己愛自由,用一生寫下自己的legacy。
