This time, Alexandre Benjamin Navet brings a new poetic meaning to the Maison’s cherished flora theme and decorates the lush gardens with colors and lively spring butterflies. Entering Van Cleef & Arpels spring gardens pop-up stores, blooming orchids, flamingos, birds of paradise flowers and budding leaves express the Maison’s vision of enchanted nature. Alexandre Benjamin Navet's floral and natural patterns provide visitors a unique experience through these imaginary spring poetic gardens.


Two Butterfly collection 

This is the occasion to discover the newly launched Two Butterfly creations. The charming butterfly is decorated with turquoise for the first time, and the dazzling diamonds with the spring-warm yellow gold compose a dance of light and shadow. The composition creates a striking contrast on the creations and form a graceful combination like a spring breeze.
