As seen in Vogue

15 Sep

In Japan, they are a symbol of ultimate feminity and in China, they represent eternal love… but to me, they represent, feminism, freedom and confidence.

I don’t know about you but I heart butterflies.

Van Cleef and Arpel have chosen every little girl’s favourite insect as the inspiration for the collection that they unveiled as part of Couture Week in Paris in January. The delightful Papillons pieces have taken hundreds of hours to create and are an ode to the delicate creatures that inspired them.

I think they are just beautiful, not that different from the ones we can find here for 12-20kd in the cute jewellery souqs. I bought quite a few when I got married in different colours but these are much, much nicer.

They also stock other jewellery. Their Bridal Collection is exceptionally beautiful………

So, where can I find this Boutique in Kuwait? Here comes the sad part, you can’t. There are 7 Boutiques in the Middle East and unfortunately, Kuwait isn’t one of them. UPDATE: They just opened up in Salhiya!!! 28/09/2010
