As seen in: Madonna in Vogue with Pearls
May 6, 2019
Starring on the front cover of British Vogue's June 2019 issue, released on 10th May, the legendary music and cultural icon Madonna shows that pearls are still very much in vogue.
The shoot for the magazine was unveiled by the Edward Enniful OBE, the editor-in-chief of British Vogue. The story celebrates Madonna's 60th birthday and the unveiling of her new 14th album 'Madame X'.
The feature creates a series of images influenced by leading feminists of the mid-20th century "whose legacy Madonna not only admires, but relates to,” states Enniful. "I believe it’s important that we pay a little respect: for much of her life, she was probably the most high-profile feminist on the planet,” he continues. The feature celebrates the fact that, during her 20 year career, Madonna has always been a creative innovator.
The shoot was styled by Benjamin Bruno and photographed in London in March 2019 by Mert Alas and Marcus Piggott. Two of the images see Madonna styled with pearls - one in an open necked Armani white men's shirt.
We are truly delighted and honoured that our Opera Length Akoya Pearl Necklace in Yellow Gold was chosen to be worn and photographed for the stunning set of imagery.
The necklace features a 90cm length of Akoya pearls, a classic type of saltwater pearl that is traditionally cultured in Japanese coastal waters. The Akoya pearl is loved for its sharp lustre, round shape and white colour, with a hint of pink.
A big thank you to Edward Enniful and everyone at British Vogue!
