Costume Jewelry: Pioneers of Style, Chanel, Dior and Schiaparelli, From the Chisako Kotaki Collection(コスチュームジュエリー:美の変革者たち シャネル、ディオール、スキャパレッリ 小瀧千佐子コレクションより)

2024.06.30

The term "costume jewelry" refers to jewelry made of various materials including not gemstones and precious metals but things like glass, beads, and resin. In the 1920s,Paris-based haute-couture designers such as Chanel, Dior, and Schiaparelli began to incorporate costume jewelry into their works, enabling them to create more freely without being restricted to a given material. In time, this led to the rise of specialized costume jewelry workshops in Europe, where highly skilled artisans helped designers realize their works.

After Worls War Ⅱ, particularly in the U.S., costume jewerly grew prevalent in tandem with mass-produced fashion. This exhibition, the first ever held in Japan to focus on the history and allure of costume jewelry, is drawn from the Chisako Kotaki Collection, one of the world's finest collections of costume jewelry.
