The young French designer was inspired by early 20th century iconic pieces. “Van Cleef & Arpels or Cartier minaudières were a wealth of ingenuity and technical perfection, with extreme attention to detail combining sophistication and minimum clutter… I have a passion for boxes: to tidy, to hide and to carry your belongings around. The box is a fascinating object combining mystery and simplicity,” says Deltour.

The key ring includes an 8GB memory USB key, shaped from a strip of aluminum wrapped around the ring in a flirty whistle shape.

 

In the designer’s words, « For me Lexon is a brand that links very easily design and technology, the style and the function. It is also timeless. » The question is, how did we ever live without these?
