From ready-to-wear clothing and fashion timepieces to fragrance and makeup, Gucci moves on to more exceptional sections of luxury as it unveils its first-ever high jewellery collection, titled Hortus Deliciarum. All the featured pieces were designed by the creative director of the house, Alessandro Michele.
Named after the medieval illustrated encyclopedia, Hortus Deliciarum captures the now-signature eclectic, poetic and mythical codes of Gucci with more than 200 pieces under three different divine themes.
The first theme is an ode to eternal love, where translucent, vivid gemstones are used to portray a lovely romance. The second chapter tells a tale of the animal kingdom, bringing the spirit of nature to life with ornate diamond settings. Finally, the third chapter mirrors Alessandro Michele's lyrical and eclectic interpretation of florals with a parade of divine solitaires.

Together with the debut Hortus Deliciarum, Gucci has also unveiled its new flagship boutique at Place Vendôme, Paris. Unlike every other Gucci boutique, the interior has aristocratic, muted tones for the sophisticated space. The boutique is dedicated to the Italian house's high jewellery collection.
