١. The Exceptional Pieces

Guerlain Heritage continues to reinvent itself through extraordinary pieces crafted with artisanal expertise. Begüm Khan’s beloved bestiary is coming to Exceptional Pieces, showcasing the bee and the beetle. Following in their wake, the tiger, frog and tortoise complete this world of fantastical animals.

The designer has created two Exceptional Pieces beautifully enhancing the iconic Bee Bottle, which is celebrating its 170th anniversary this year: a masterful Métier d’Art piece decorated with a radiant beetle and an Exceptional Piece based on the bee for the Imagine Guerlain Christmas rendezvous.

For this Métier D’art edition, Begüm Khan has created a piece of jewellery in 24-carat gold-plated bronze, paved set with 440 gems. The jewelled beetle sits majestically on the window of the one-litre Bee Bottle, surrounded by a myriad of crystals forming a rosette that dazzlingly marks the four cardinal points. Each adornment is hand-crafted in the artist’s Istanbul atelier and takes many hours to produce. 40 limited edition pieces are available worldwide.

٥. IMAGINE Guerlain 2023 Millésime by Begüm Khan

This decoration has been crafted in 24-carat gold-plated bronze in an eminently poetic, asymmetric design, complete with the bee sporting 37 sparkling hand-set paved gems. 4,515 limited edition pieces are available worldwide.
