Viva la Lazare Diamond!
Lazare Diamond® Presents ‘Le Papillon’ in True Haute Couture Style!
Lazare Kaplan International Inc. (Lazare), master cutter of ‘the
world’s most beautiful diamond®’ - the Lazare Diamond®, is
showing a new approach to diamond dressing with its allegiance to the
high-octane glamorous world of fashion. Today, in true haute
couture style, Lazare presented the unparalleled allure of diamonds
with the showcase of Le Papillon, the US$ 1 million dollar (RM3.8
million) two-piece diamond studded creation that consists a camisole
and a low hip long flowy skirt bedecked with 2,000 ideal cut Lazare
Le Papillon, an exquisite creation by Bonita Cheung, an acclaimed
fashion designer from Hong Kong, stood proudly aglow in a total of 300
carats of diamonds set in 31 platinum strands and weighs approximately
Aptly named “Le Papillon” as the French synonym for ‘butterfly’, the
design resembles a dazzling butterfly when view from behind. The back
of the camisole is composed almost entirely of multiple strands of
platinum set with Lazare brilliant cut diamonds, which are draped
sensuously in two sections to suggest the open wings of the delicate
butterfly. Bonita’s intimate knowledge in high fashion coupled
with her taste and design ability stemmed this inspiration for the
butterfly-like design and the use of soft chiffon in aqua blue.
According to Laura Chow, Regional Director and Vice President SE Asia,
Lazare Kaplan, the ensemble displayed an array of flawless
craftsmanship of the company’s 100 years of legacy and authority in
diamonds. By teaming up with Bonita to fashion this unique
diamond-embellished ensemble, Lazare has created an haute couture
lifestyle that is the epitome of luxury.
“Haute couture and jewellery, especially diamonds have always been
inseparable from each other. Diamonds provide couture with a way
of exploring new materials and coming up with fresh bold ways to wear
diamonds. With “Le Papillon”, Lazare Diamond once again
illustrates why the diamond company has a well-founded reputation in
jewellery making that showcases the “World’s Most Beautiful
Diamondsâ”. The Lazare diamonds certainly stand out in the
world of couture and luxury, sophistication, artistic courage,
refinement and style,” said Chow.
