The most beautiful clips by Van Cleef & Arpels gathered in an exhibition in Paris. Here are some ♦ ︎
The clip, if you read the definition, is a spring clip of various types and for different uses. All right, but the clip can also exist for another, unique, different reason: to be admired itself. This is the case with high-jewelry clips, which usually stop nothing, close or serve anything but show their own beauty. Back in fashion after years of oblivion, the brooch has a second youth. And remember what happens when the fine jewelry marries the art of goldsmithing thinks about Van Cleef & Arpels, who in Paris, in the luxurious venue at 20 Place Vendôme, has organized an exhibition of his most famous clips: from the famous dancers, animals, flowers.
The exhibition is titled Le clip, a bijou de style et d’élégance and contains 54 pieces from Maison’s heritage collection, accompanied by drawings and videos.
It is also an opportunity to revisit fashions and forms linked to historical periods from the 1920s to today. Wheat, feathers, perfect hoops, lace knots, lions and chicks, fairies that are pinned on evening or day dresses, on different occasions. But always as a distinctive sign: not everyone can wear these small works of art.
