Quilted affair: Meet the new additions to Chanel's Coco Crush collection

Elegant simplicity

The updated Coco Crush fine jewellery collection will have you lavishing your affections upon it

Mademoiselle Coco Chanel made no secret of her great fondness for little black dresses, pearls and the quilt design that embossed many a creation in her eponymous fashion empire.

The matelassé (otherwise known as the quilted pattern) was one of Chanel's favourite materials that took inspiration from her love for the equestrian world. Today, this famous design has been interpreted into a much-loved fine jewellery collection that speaks to the women who adore the sophisticated feminine lines Mademoiselle Chanel had always championed.

Proudly displaying two new exclusive variants, white and beige gold rings are finely engraved with the iconic stylised quilt pattern. An exclusive material to the maison, beige gold — a shade fans of the house will know is near and dear to Mademoiselle Chanel — is a stunning metal debuting specially for this season's collection. And in a Coco Crush first, a multitude of brilliant cut diamonds encrust the white gold rings. Available in slim and broad bands, the updated Coco Crush collection is a subtle refinement of Chanel's immutable spirit. It's a modern minimalism that wears for all occasions.

The Coco Crush collection will be available from April at Chanel boutiques.
