The creation, unveiled was titled The Melting Flower of Time. The dress was inspired by  J.G. Ballard’s short story The Garden of Time.

The color of the gown, which was reminiscent of a weathered flower, only added to its allure.

Inspired by the sea, the new Tiffany & Co. collaboration with Pharrell Williams, Tiffany Titan, is one that has captivated our gaze. This jewellery collection features 19 pieces that include necklaces, earrings, bracelets, and rings. Each design has spiked edges that reference Poseidon’s trident.  The collection brings together contrasting elements, by combining the sharp spikes of the trident motif with curved links, creating a dialogue between tension and harmony. It comprises a range of necklaces, earrings, bracelets, and rings, offered in either 18k yellow gold or titanium, and studded with reverse-set diamonds for added brilliance. The unexpected design twists, from the use of titanium to the pavilion-exposing diamond settings, challenge traditional jewellery norms and make a daring statement. The most expensive piece in the collection is a necklace worth $55,000 USD, made of 18k yellow gold with pave diamonds in the shape of a spear. Other pieces include a clasp necklace worth $39,000 USD, a link bracelet worth $26,000 USD, and a five-row ring worth $16,500 USD. The collection also features titanium earrings and pendants that provide a dark contrast to the expensive jewels.
