Gucci’s “Hortus Deliciarum” High Jewelry Collection Is a Lesson in Modern Decadence
Presented in a campaign starring Jodie Turner-Smith.
Named “Hortus Deliciarum,” (Latin for “Garden of Lights), the eclectic collection is divided into four motifs and comprised of 130 pieces, inspired by the majestic beauty of the natural world, such as star-crossed skyscapes, and breath-taking sunsets. Pieces see a modern take on the classic 1920s fringe, with tasseled necklaces and chandelier earrings dressed in precious gemstones, from vivid topazes and emeralds to more neutral diamonds and opals, as well as singular solitaires, rings, bracelets and a series of bejeweled watches.
As for the accompanying campaign, shot by Glen Luchford, we see Jodie Turner-Smith taking a midnight dip accompanied by her brightly-colored pet snake and bird. With Mother Nature as the collection’s main inspiration, Turner-Smith acts as a fellow muse, expressing the splendor of the natural world.
