THE TECHNIQUE OF SALMON
Nothing is more nonconformist than the salmon’s technique of swimming upstream. During the final months of the year, we tend to look to the future, planning change and formulating resolutions for times to come – imagining the miraculous events that will fall from the sky, just as predicted by the stars.
But here at Roberto Coin, in these final months of the year, we’re taking a moment to be salmon.
We’re freeing ourselves from the strong current towards the future for an instant and taking a look at the past.
We’re evaluating everything that’s been created until now, recognizing its strong points and weaknesses as well as what works more and what works less. We pat ourselves on the back even if there’s always room for improvement. A glance into the past can help determine the direction of the way forward.
This year, Roberto Coin launched the Domino collection, an exotic inspiration that transports us to faraway China. The Domino is a symbol of profound energy and the game of Dominoes demonstrates how a small amount of energy can create a huge chain movement. Roberto Coin has triggered its energy, made of beauty and grace, hoping that both will increase exponentially.
There are also new models in the Love in Verona and Venetian Princess collections – full of color with lapis lazuli, malachite and turquoise or covered just with the light of diamonds. All of them are decorated with flowers, a tribute to newly blooming emotions that exude the fragrance of eternity.
Lastly, there’s Cialoma, one of Roberto Coin’s most prestigious and exclusive lines. Its origins are in the sea. Cialoma is the name of the song Sicilian fishermen sing to recognize one another in the dark of night. Cialoma isn’t a line of jewelry – it’s a journey you can wear.
Once again this year, every Roberto Coin jewel is a story to be told throughout Italy and the world; a story of art and technique, of beauty and focus … and of life and the relationships we choose to fill it with.
