Van Cleef & Arpels celebrates the animal kingdom aboard Noah’s ArkL’Arche de Noé racontée par Van Cleef & Arpels is the new public exhibition by Van Cleef & Arpels running in Paris till September 26. It welcomes on a dreamlike travel through a positive and timeless interpretation of the of Noah’s Ark, evoking first of all a preserved paradise. To present its new High Jewelry collection, the Maison entrusted Robert Wilson, American set designer famed for his radiant, subtle, and thrilling conceptions, with the scenography. In his vision of the Ark, Robert Wilson imagined a sensory mise-en-scène plunged in the engulfing darkness. The constant screening of a video is reminiscent of the sea; the soft and enfolding piece of music evokes mystery; the skies darken as lightning streaks herald a storm, the Ark departs, and the ensuing respite hums like a promise of peace… The collection features animal couple brooches, the offering weaves together the Parisian house’s heritage relationship with nature, craftsmanship, and precious stones.
Free admission from 12:00pm to 8:00pm at Hôtel d’Évreux, 19, place Vendôme
