ith this new collection AKILLIS returns to its first inspirations coming from ancient mythology. Caroline Gaspard created a line of jewellery derived from the story of Cleopatra, queen of Egypt. A woman of character with enchanting powers of seduction, it is said she used to wear live pythons around her wrists. In contrast with ancient Egyptian jewellery, the AKILLIS line represents the reptile by its purest essence: its unmistakable skin pattern. With imagination flying high, the French brand offers its own version of the reptile, somewhere between precious wildlife and a futuristic carapace.
The gold and diamond scales curl around the fingers and wrists, drawing a beautiful portrait along the ears and undulating around the neck of the special person wearing a python jewel. The collection, named PYTHON, conveys the warmth of the yellow gold and pink gold, and the coolness of
the white gold and diamonds. As always AKILLIS enhances the best of French traditional craftsmanship to give life to the most creative designs. Caroline Gaspard wanted the snake skin aspect to be rendered true and authentic, putting into relief the skin pattern by way of a gold embossed
design. The motif finds its maximum symbolic expression and becomes absolutely rock’n’roll.
This new collection reveals once again the brand’s talent to transform and reinvent the codes of jewellery, this time delivering a new interpretation of a classic. No doubt will this snake-like collection charm you and you will not hesitate any longer to cover yourself with our PYTHON jewels.
The design associates geometrical and round shaped scale elements, bringing to mind the movement of the snake, coiling around one’s body, thus revealing all the sensuality and mystery emerging from this most feared yet admired animal. As always, the brand is faithful to its taste for contrast and duality. Though the collection is indeed an ode to feminity, the design is an obvious reminder of ancient warriors’ armours, an inspiration
forever dear to the brand.
