How Les Blés de Chanel pays tribute to Coco Chanel herself

When it comes to Chanel the brand, there’s no greater source of inspiration than Coco Chanel herself. From the designer’s childhood stories to her most iconic creations, her life and her work are the things that continuously fuel the house’s latest collections. So it comes as no surprise that for their latest high jewellery collection, Les Blés de Chanel, Coco is at the centre of every design.

Inspired by her memories of wheat, the collection is centred around the harvest festival, a time she grew up celebrating as a child. For Chanel, wheat symbolised everything good and wholesome, and it soon turned into her personal lucky charm. From Dali paintings to bronze and wooden sculptures, the element of wheat was present in every nook and cranny in her apartment.

Chanel’s Brins de Diamants ear cuff (price on request) is the perfect statement piece.

Celebrating this meaningful statement, Chanel’s vision of regeneration, abundance, luck, prosperity and endless creativity has come to life in the most powerful way. This new jewellery collection follows the life cycle of wheat, featuring 62 pieces that resemble many facets, from young shoots to full-grown sheaths of wheat.

We love the brooch and matching earrings (price on request).

Though every piece in this collection is noteworthy, some pieces really stood out for us. Making a true statement, the Brins de Diamants ear cuff represents the young wheat shoots of early spring. It’s the glistening diamonds and elegant silhouette, reminiscent of young stalks of wheat, that create a mesmerising look.

For those looking for something more versatile, the Moisson d’Or brooch is a sight for sore eyes. Adorned with yellow sapphires and diamonds, you’ll never want to take it off.

The bracelet and ring (price on request) are both contemporary and elegant.

Last but not least, the Légende de Blé ring and Moisson de Perles bracelet are a match made in heaven. The ring represents summer’s most precious offerings, while the bracelet resembles the harvest with diamonds, yellow sapphires and pearls.

With this collection, Chanel pays tribute to Coco Chanel’s most powerful and personal symbol. Creating something more than just a fashion statement, it’s a lucky charm, too.
