The Maison's iconic motif of luck radiates in the enchanting Alhambra Exhibition at Taipei 101 Shopping Mall, Van Cleef & Arpels

From November 15 to 26, 2022 Van Cleef & Arperls celebrate its iconic Alhambra collection. The Maison has imagined an exhibition held at City Square on the 4th Floor in Taipei 101 Shopping Mall. 

 

The space is inspired by four-leaf clovers and composed of four parts: a clover garden with flying butterflies, a lakeside with swans lingering at night, a forest with birds playing in winter, and a snowy landscape with foxes chasing one another. The guests are invited into the garden, wandering in a wintery atmosphere, and exploring the dreamlike Alhambra garden of luck together.  

 

As an emblem of Van Cleef & Arpels, the Alhambra pop-up reflects all the expertise of a High Jewelry Maison. From lapidaries to jewelers and from stone-setters to polishers, each piece calls on a wide variety of skills. For the first time in Taiwan, creations of the Heritage Collection of the 1970s will be showcased, including a 1973 Alhambra long necklace with 20 motifs, set with yellow gold and malachite, as well as a 1976 Alhambra long necklace with 20 motifs, set with yellow gold and coral.

 

Each year Van Cleef & Arpels enriches the Alhambra collection with new creations remaining faithful to the fluidity and elegance of its design, and selecting a variety of finest materials, such as white or grey mother-of-pearl, onyx, carnelian, malachite, tiger's eye, diamonds, or even bois d'amourette.

 

A series of new pieces made their entry in this iconic collection. A long necklace, a bracelet, a pendant, a ring and a pair of earrings in guilloché white gold. The sunbeam-like streaks bestow a subtle relief on the surface of the gold, intensifying the flow of light. True to the original style of the Alhambra collection, each motif features a beaded contour echoing a central bead in white gold.
