or the first time in its history, the jeweller Courbet has summoned Swiss know-how by joining forces with the Label Noir company. Together, they explore the world of men through four limited edition bracelets, boldly transforming Courbet’s creations.
The collaboration begins with two materials dear to Courbet: diamonds created in the laboratory and recycled gold. Specialised in the plural art of personalisation, Label Noir brings a technology combining functional performance and aesthetics, known as a-DLC, for Amorphous Diamond Like Carbon.
When subjected to this treatment, the gold is tinted with dark shades, ranging from anthracite grey to black, and provides Courbet with an unprecedented territory of creative expression. United under the aegis of innovation and technology, the two houses together embody the avant-garde of the traditional world of watchmaking and jewellery and bring a new angle to the masculine identity.
Treated gold and diamonds interact in a fascinating chiaroscuro and subtly cover the wrist like a precious tattoo. The emblem of the House, the eclipse stands out in relief from the coldness of the gold, embodying so well through its CO motif the union of the iconic skills of Label Noir and Courbet. Masculine, but above all rock and rebel, the lines of these exceptional bracelets invite the expression of a new style. To be worn alone or together, the two cord bracelets and two bangles that make up this original collection reflect a singular art of living between raw nature and dandyism.
The Label Noir x Courbet limited editions is available on the Label Noir and Courbet websites, as well as from selected retailers listed on both websites.
