Boucheron wrapped up a collaborative exhibition with Japanese artist Hiroshi Sugimoto at its Place Vendôme flagship on October 25, taking the occasion to launch the Hôtel de la Lumière collection, a reinterpretation of eight classic Boucheron pieces. The virtually all-white debut riffs on idiosyncratic motifs such as the peacock, for the Paon de Lune necklace, or champagne glass-crystal for the Cascade de Diamants necklace. The commemorative creations, in addition to their reissued signature scent, celebrate the 120th anniversary of their Paris opening, and are only available in Boucheron boutiques.
