Buccellati celebrated its New York flagship store opening with an exhibition of Impressionist and Post-Impressionist tableaux.
Buccellati, the renown High Jewellery Italian Maison, celebrated last March 12 the opening of its new 5-storey flagship store, located at 714 Madison Avenue, New York, with an exhibition titled “Timeless Blue”.
On this occasion, five one-of-a-kind high jewellery creations were showcased, inspired by Claude Monet, Pierre Bonnard, Homer Winslow, Mikhail Larionov and Odilon Redon paintings – a courtesy of Wildenstein & Co.
With Italian Renaissance always at the core of Buccellati’s aesthetic views, Andrea and Lucrezia Buccellati did found a new source of inspiration in the Impressionist and Post-Impressionist artistic mouvements.
These five unique jewels take in fact Buccellati into the 21st century, by indicating a new approach and a timeless elegance, with the Maison’s tradition evolving towards the modern world.
Here are the named paintings, and the breathtaking jewels they inspired:
Here is a gallery with more takes out of the “Timeless Blue” event:
The name of the event, “Timeless Blue”, speaks of this colour as the fil rouge of Buccellati’s stylistic identity, initiated by the Maison’s Founder, Mario Buccellati – at the event the color blue was accentuated by two blue Maseratis at the entrance door and a Timeless Blue cocktail: a blue scenery welcoming quite a few socialites, fashion gurus and top international clients, among whom we will mention Kelly Rutherford, Wes Gordon, Indre Rockefeller, Olivia Chantecaille, Adelina Wong Ettelson, Alexandra Lind Rose, Beatrice Rossi-Landi, Alison Wright and Ashley Smith.
An evening which was to support the Save Venice Foundation, an organization based in New York which mission is to restore architectural and artistic works of art in Venice.
