Revered between the Belle Époque and the 1960s, the Maison Lacloche attracted a vast, prestigious, and international clientele. Its delicacy and poetry dazzled many eyes in the 1925 International Exhibition of Modern Decorative and Industrial Arts in Paris, and later across both sides of the Atlantic among European royals and Hollywood stars, with its stunning jeweled renditions standing at the forefront of the Art Deco movement. Once a summit of high jewelry from France, and yet, its name has long since faded into oblivion.

Bringing together over 40 Lacloche pieces of jewelry, cases, compacts, and precious clocks from around the world, this retrospective exhibition by L’ÉCOLE, School of Jewelry Arts – the fruit of dedicated research and a book written by the curator Laurence Mouillefarine – is the first-ever monograph to retrace the fascinating yet troubled history of the Parisian jewelry house. Premiered in Paris and now traveled to Hong Kong with newly selected creations, this exhibition illustrates the Maison’s technical prowess and impeccable taste, whose luster shines as bright today as it did in the past.
