In a Twist on The Trend, Paris Exhibits Artist-Designed Jewelry


Meret Oppenheim fur and metal cuff

Darn! This Meret Oppenheim fur and metal cuff would have been perfect for our Where the Wild Things Are costume.  Too bad the 1935 piece is one of a kind.

Happy Halloween, everyone!  In keeping with, but reversing, the wave of fashion entering museums, Paris’s Galerie de Crédit Municipal is showing a collection of jewelry designed by artists.  Most of the pieces are pretty October-31-worthy.

These spider brooches were created by the artist Louise Bourgeois in 2005.

The exhibit isn’t coming State-side, and not everyone can make it to France before January 8 — when the show closes — but you can see some of the best pieces online at Vogue Paris.  We thought they were a fitting art-meets-fashion tribute to the day.  Enjoy!
