This selection is dedicated to the relationship between fashion and jewellery century: from stunning Art Deco bijoux and thoese of the great French and Italian couturiers to Audrey Hepburn’s pearls in “Breakfast at Tiffany’s and those of Chanel, up to brooches by Elsa Schiapparelli and Eisenberg. Fashion transfers to jewellery the seasonality of the collections, the capriciousness of taste and the lightness of the ephemeral, with surprinsing results.
