Avakian draws its inspiration for the Harlequin Collection from history and theatre. The Harlequin characters in the Commedia Dell’Arte prompted the Maison to design a namesake collection zizled “Harlequin”. Inspired by the multicoloured costumes of the “Italian comedy”, the rings feature the Maison’s signature Diamond-shaped harlequin motif that imbues the collection with a geometric structure. The lozeng motif, first develope in 1998, has evolved into an emblematic design code in many of Avakian’s creations.
