Following Chanel's Haute Couture show at the Grand Palais in Paris, France's most esteemed fashion house opened the doors of its flagship boutique on Place Vendôme to show its new collection of high jewellery.

'Jardin de Camélias' reinterprets the iconic Chanel bloom in myriad ways, in the full spectrum of colour combinations, from bold black and white to ultra-girlish candy-hued oranges and pinks. The exquisite Camélia Solaire bracelet layers the warmest yellow gold leaves under a white diamond flower, interspersed with gleaming yellow diamonds, resulting in a piece that almost glows. But it was the Collier Camélia Ganse necklace that stole my heart, in classic Chanel black and white, and dripping with blooms in the most generous of lengths.
