Two years ago Creative Director Constance Cummings fell in love at first sight with a particularly memorable gold cuff. After much time spent trying to source one, we finally have this little masterpiece in the Love & Object fold.
Let us introduce to you the Christian Dior Ophelia cuff. Architect of fashion, Gianfranco Ferre, designed this special piece during his groundbreaking tenure with the house of Dior.
Ferre, like Monsieur Dior, believed jewels were an essential part of his couture collections. The mega fashion of the 80s meant Ferre could design the most opulent, unapologetic accessories to accompany his clothing. On the runway, supermodels’ ears dripped in pearls and crystals, while their wrists sung with the clanging of heavy metal.
In essence, the Ophelia cuff is an ode to all that Ferre was famous for. Its design is unhampered by borders, inspired by a life spent between Paris and Milan. The inspiration of Versailles, with its gilded interiors and sculpted gardens, stands out to us, as does Ferre’s love for the grandeur of Italy, a country steeped in the history of Gods and Goddesses.
Finally found and purchased in Florence, the Ophelia Cuff and its maker continue to supply us with creative inspiration. Effortless Parisian style comes easily to the wearer of this outstanding object; it exudes plenty of allure all on its own.
