2019 collection: jewelry

For this new collection, VOLTE FACE explores the theme of the jewelry in a pure and modern spirit. The decorative intention stands out in the Art Deco style multiplying details and materials effects that give character to the silhouettes. The design is inspired by strong motifs and constructions from the iconic lamps of Louis Poulsen, jewels from Amélie Riech or Georg Jensen. The metal frames are adorned with fine and delicate Art Deco details (NOON, NESS). There is also the use of Titanium for the models NAIA and NOA, unveiling vintage colors on glamorous and modern shapes. The acetate materials rely on exclusive collages made in France with the CHROMA concept (NELY, NOW, NICE and NATH).

NAIA, NOA (CONCEPT RÉTRO ARTY)

The design of this Titanium frame is inspired by the ornamental motifs of Art Deco that can be found on the facades of beautiful Belle Époque architecture buildings in Paris. With its glamorous fluttering shape and flowing curves, it illustrates the «Parisian chic» of the 1920s, combining vintage elegance and contemporary sophistication. The style of the model is carried by the contrast between the sobriety of the shape and the refined decoration on the top of the frame, multiplying references to Art Deco architecture: simple and refined geometry, precise features and retro color charts like copper, khaki or almond green lacquer. The play of colors and matte / shiny finishes are enhanced by a striking metallic relief that gives the model style and character.
