This book is a real gem: the reader opens a box, in which he will find a golden edged album. The photos protected by a rustling greaseproof paper show people, undressed and yet adorned and covered by a great diamond studded golden brooch.

These photographs of nudes by Karl Lagerfeld illustrate the language of the body. In some of the photos, the piece of jewellery is almost entirely covered by the hair; in others it is used to cover the sexual characteristics; in others the body has created a dialogue with the precious object. This book tells a little story about the conversation of the senses with jewellery and luxury.
