Seven deadly sins
Marcel Wanders – Christofle – 2021
Associate Creative Director
In celebration of the 10-year anniversary of the iconic Jarden d’Éden collection, the story of the Garden of Eden is continued with a seductive collection of silver-plated accessories illustrating the seven deadly sins. As imagined by Dante’s poem, “The Divine Comedy” and the story of Purgatory in particular – describing a place between heaven and hell where souls repenting their sins can redeem themselves – the seven deadly sins are ordered as: Pride, Envy, Anger, Sloth, Greed, Gluttony and Lust. Animated as an animal, each of the pieces is embellished with one of the sins, beautifully entwined in the whimsical decoration of the lush garden, featuring a wealth of arabesques and sensual volutes. A welcoming paradise for the peacock, snake, snail, lion, toad, bear and goat and a pleasure for the eyes and soul…
The special capsule collection compromises two shot glasses, a mirror, honey dipper, key ring, game set of three dice, a pocket ashtray and money clip. For the aficionado’s a special limited collectors set has been created. Crafted in lambskin embossed with the Jardin d’Éden motif it treasures the entire anniversary collection executed with an exclusive rose gold finish.
