Dear Shaded Viewers,
This reminds me of long ago when you used to give your boyfriend half of a heart to express your love for each other. Gucci’s Link to Love is reminiscent of the 1980’s geometric designs that you give to your lover and it creates a bond of love. The collection uses three colours of gold- yellow, white and pink and includes rings, bracelets, necklaces and a selection of earrings. The GUCCI logo appears on all pieces as a decorative element. I feel lucky being born on the 8th a symbol of infinity which is used in the octagonal shape of the rings and the bracelets. You have different proposals offered in 18 carat white, yellow or pink gold with a plain, studded or with a plain, studded or finely engraved stripe finish. The rings are available in sizes ranging from three to six millimetres. The clasp makes it easy to open. Some of the rings are set with gemstones and diamonds: the plain version is available in white gold and set with pave diamonds, while the striped version is set with green tourmalines, rubellites or baguette-cut diamonds. The necklaces have a delicate chain with a central pendant and also are in 18-carat yellow or rose gold as well as in white gold with a diamond-set baguette.
Angelo Pennetta did the images and a film. Inspired by the fashion and beauty editorials of 1960s magazines, the campaign features a series of close-ups that revisit vintage portraits in a lively and modern way, while playful hand gestures and strong poses allow the jewels to shine in the foreground of each composition.
