A one-of-a-kind location — the iconic Antti Lovag-designed Palais Bulles (“bubble palace”), hidden in the hills of the French Riviera — served as a spectacular backdrop for the launch of the new Pandora Reflexions collection. Inspired by the multi-faceted nature of modern women, the flexible metallic-mesh bracelets are available in three shades (yellow gold, rose gold and silver). The accompanying charms, which have graphic, clean lines, are delicate and lie flush against the bracelets so as to maintain the modern aesthetic — a striking reminder of how the smallest of details can make the biggest statement.

Designers Francesco Terzo and A. Filippo Ficarelli, who mingled with guests including Winnie Harlow, Suki Waterhouse and Olivia Culpo at the launch party, believe that every piece of jewellery tells a story. As the sun beamed down over the southern hillside, the Italian duo suggested different ways women can make jewellery their own, like layering or “adding dimension” by mixing sizes and styles to create something original, and, most importantly, use it as a form of self-expression. “We wanted to offer women something that truly reflects them: their personal narrative, creativity and personality.”
