Ann Demeulemeester presents JEWELS
Casa Argentaurum will host Ann Demeulemeester’ exhibition in Ghent - Belgium, 25 November 2016 to 8 January 2017.
From 25 November 2016 to 8 January 2017 Casa Argentaurum will present a selection of jewels by the fashion designer Ann Demeulemeester.
The collection features small glass vials filled with loose precious stones or diamond pearls, a combination of different chains, or double velvet ribbons.
Like in her fashion works, Demeulemeester used materials she is already accustomed with such as leather, silver and diamonds, and the new appearance of gold.
Ann Demeulemeester started working in jewels collections ten years ago, as a complement to her seasonal fashion presentations.
The designer uses old techniques that emphasise the purity of the materials such as the roughness of precious stones.
At Casa Argentaurum we see featured jewels including pendants, necklaces, woven armbands and earrings, showing a historic overview of this virtually unknown jewellery collection.
In line with the use of colour by Ann Demeulemeester, the exhibition design features a black/white contrast with night following day.
