Van Cleef & Arpels Christmas Windows
24.12.2010 § Leave a comment
It’s Heaven… I am usually so disappointed about jewelry Shop Windows and how people sometimes don’t get that shop windows are the first impression, the one that counts most. Van Cleef & Arpels and installation artist Douglas Little definitely brought my hopes up this Christmas with their
fantastic what am I saying AMAZING Jules Verne inspired windows on 5th Avenue.
Journey to the Center of the Earth
Five Weeks in a Balloon
20,000 Leagues Under the Sea
Caspar David Friedrich Inspiration
One can’t see the jewelry so well on those pictures but one can imagine how magical it must feel to stand in front of VCA’s windows, how curious one has to become to enter this magical world and discover the enchanting jewelry. Especially if one has heard about what is waiting inside.
Douglas Little placed this beautiful Sea Women statue inside VCA and jeweled it with the stunning diamonds and aquamarines Krafla necklace from the “Journey to the center of the Earth” Collection. According to their Facebook Page this “statue conveys the idea of nature spirits, the ethereal and the fantastic. It is finished with cream abalone, rock crystal and white coral, emerging from a gold and silver-leafed crystal explosion.” I advise you to visit VCA on Facebook, there you will find an exclusive video presenting Douglas Little’s work. Merry Christmas xxx
