For a third successive year, maison parisienne partnered with the prestigious Plaza Athénée to unveil yet another exhibition. “Or du Temps” celebrates the expertise and unique talents of France’s top craftsmen, designers and artists.
Hubert Barrère opened the floor with a unique and curious piece, the first Haute Couture collaboration with the Manufacture de Sèvres, stemming from a marvellous alchemist’s blend of gold, thread and firing. This was followed by a parade of unusual items, a procession of ceramics decorated with precious metal, a collection of trendy copper and pewter, furniture displaying some divine cabinetmaking, mirrors reflecting a thousand and one rays, vanities that resemble elegant dolls, opulent jewellery made with unpolished materials, superb embroidery etc. This was “Or du Temps” at its best!
