The fabulous bestiary of Harumi Klossowska de Rola

Jan 25, 2017

Fashion week is always an opportunity to discover new collections that offer a different vision of high jewellery and this is definitely the case with the latest pieces imagined by the designer Harumi Klossowska de Rola, which we talked about a short while ago on the site.

As part of the inauguration of a new space dedicated to temporary exhibitions, the Van Cleef & Arpels School is hosting “Retour d’expédition”, which presents its latest creations: collectibles and jewellery.

Panther, eagle, owl, serval, bull and animal skulls take us on a dreamlike caravan journey back from far-off lands. The materials are noble, such as mammoth ivory or horn, the detail of the sculptures is pushed to the extreme and the stones that dot the creations illuminate the imposing rings of this latest opus even more. A journey to be discovered with free admission until 1 February 2017, from 2pm to 7pm. Not to be missed!
