The collection, amassed for the Princess Catherine Aleya Aga Khan, wife of the Prince Sadruddin Aga Khan, features some incredible masterpieces, attesting to a remarkable innovativeness, imagination, skills and savoir faire.
These precious objects, whose craftsmanship was as important as their function, were specially designed for the first wave of ‘liberated’ women in the 1920s: women who smoked, enjoyed going out, applied make-up in public and dare publically keeping an eye on their watch.
The exhibition at L’École, School of Jewelry Arts showcases the multiple Chinese, Japanese, Persian and European influences on these exceptional Art Deco objects.
