04 march 2019

Francesca Amfitheatrof, Louis Vuitton’s Artistic Director, jewellery and watches, launches her own conceptual jewellery line, which is accessible for all groups of buyers, says
A new direct-to-consumer collection called Thief and Heist comprises only of one bracelet the «Tag» which will be sold for $125.
“I didn’t want to do a big, gold, diamond collection straight away. That felt… a little bit more static,” she was quoted as saying by the agency. “I wanted something that was more alive and fun that everybody can buy and afford, with a lot of movement that speaks to how we live today.’’
The «Tag» bracelet is made of nylon and silver and has a special secured clasp. The bracelet cannot be removed once it’s closed, «tagging» its holder. The only way to take the bracelet off is to cut it. 
The new collection will be launched in March 2019.
Francesca Amfitheatrof previously worked for the jewellery house Tiffany & Co. and created the famous «T» collection which is still popular with the jeweller’s clients.
