Now that you’ve seen the image above, could you guess what flower this collection is celebrating? I know I wouldn’t get it right… Harry Winston’s latest launch is a new release of the Sunflower Collection. Yes, sunflower.
I don’t wish to take anything away from the loveliness of the collection as it is classic yet modern and clean, wear-for-the-rest-of-your-life kind of stuff and I certainly wouldn’t say no to any of it. What I can’t mentally escape from is that they don’t look like sunflowers at all. The video they released does nothing to help this as they overlay technical drawings of the pieces over an image of the flower and they clearly do not resemble each other. See the video at the end of the post. The design is one from the archives and the petals have actually been scaled down slightly, but given the technical abilities of the house it would have been nice to see a revamp that actually resembled the flower, like with marquise diamonds as the petals.
