A great exhibition for costume jewellery admirers is "Luxury for Fashion: Fine Costume Jewellery from the Fior Collection London" which will open in Berlin from 11th April to 6th October 2013 at the Kunstbibliothek, Staatliche Museen, curated by Adelheid Rasche and Britta Bommert.

With its London shops, the family business “Fior” was for decades a prime address for fine costume jewellery and luxury accessories. Since the 1930s, besides stars of film and stage such as Elizabeth Taylor, Ava Gardner and Grace Kelly, its clientele boasted the international jet set and members of Europe’s royal families.

Responsible since the 1950s for the company’s product range of costume jewellery, Lawrence Feldman selected typical sets and individual pieces from seasonal collections to create the “Fior Collection London”. In the exhibition some 280 representative items from this unique private collection are on public view for the first time. They come from leading manufacturers in Europe and North America. The highly elaborate designs of the individual pieces of jewellery in dazzling metals, gloriously coloured glass stones and richly varied simulated pearls are frequently based on authentic precious jewellery. Particular highlights are the ensembles – among the most exquisite in the field of costume jewellery – created exclusively for the French couturier Christian Dior by the Pforzheim company Henkel & Grosse and by Mitchel Maer in London. These pieces are presented in their own section alongside the core exhibition, which is subdivided into decades. Costume jewellery is not intended to be permanent or timeless: it can and should react to current trends, adding an extra touch of luxury to a fashionable appearance. The interplay between fashion and costume accessories is illustrated in some 120 original fashion photographs from the “Sammlung Modebild – Lipperheidesche Kostümbibliothek” which, parallel to the costume jewellery on display, trace the succession of fashion trends through the decades from 1950 to 1990.

For many people, Coco Chanel is the greatest fashion designer of the twentieth century. As far back as the first decade of the century she was already a passionate advocate of simple, comfortable clothes and paved the way for a style that soon began to assert itself universally. Epochal fashion icons are associated with her person, including the little black dress and the Chanel costume bearing her name.

The exhibition “The Chanel Legend” with more than 150 original objects includes this necklace from our collection. Made by Maison Gripoix for Chanel in the fifties, it is a wonderful example of her elegant style with the simulated pearls and Gripoix's beautiful pâte de verre technique.

The collection also includes objects from major collections such as the Gemeentemuseum Den Haag, the Musée Galliera in Paris and the Royal Ontario Museum in Toronto, exploring the question of why Coco Chanel both as a person and the founder of a brand has always remained the subject of such great attention even today.

This exhibition conceived by the DRAIFLESSEN Collection will be shown in the Gemeentemuseum Den Haag from April 13th to July 7th 2013 in Mettingen, Germany.
