Oscar-winning actress and producer, Jessica Chastain, is the new face of Gucci High Jewelry. The campaign is a creative ode to Gucci’s rich history by Creative Director, Alessandro Michele. The portrait and still-life series evoke the opulence of Gucci in poetic and timeless aesthetics. Titled, ‘Hortus Deliciarum,’ the extraordinary new jewelry includes “maximalist jewels made with master.”
In the Gucci campaign, Jessica Chastain imbues elegance and eccentricity. An eclectic collector of fashion, art, and experiences, the Hortus Deliciarum jewelry she wears represents the mementos her character has accumulated throughout her life travels.
“Art directed by Ezra Petronio and photographed by Mert & Marcus, the film and its accompanying images possess a voyeuristic, intimate quality, combining tightly-shot portraits with atmospheric wider shots to reveal hints of the character’s unpredictability and the opulence of her home.”
“Informed by the far-flung travels taken by artists, scholars, and thinkers searching for knowledge and beauty over two centuries ago, Gucci deciphers places full of wonders for a new age. A creative ode by Alessandro Michele to specific historical and architectural eras suspended in time and space. The journey, inspired by the Grand Tour, reveals romantic, maximalist jewels made with mastery.”
