Revered from La Belle Époque (The Beautiful Age) till the 1960s, Maison Lacloche represents the summit of French high jewellery and the pioneer of the Art Deco movement. The maison’s stunning jewellery creations dazzled many in the 1925 International Exhibition of Modern Decorative and Industrial Arts in Paris, and were highly celebrated among European royals and Hollywood stars. The house eventually closed its doors in the 1950s.
To retrace the forgotten craftsmanship and fascinating history of this legendary Parisian jewellery house, L’ÉCOLE, School of Jewelry Arts, brings together 40 extremely precious Lacloche works including jewellery, cases, compacts and precious clocks. This retrospective exhibition reveals the dedicated research behind the savoir-faire, detailed in a book written by the curator Laurence Mouillefarine.
Premiered in Paris and now arriving in Hong Kong for the first time with newly selected creations, this exhibition illustrates the Maison’s technical prowess and impeccable taste, whose lustre shines as bright today as it did in the past.
