Beauty knows no boundary, nor does Peter Lippmann when he pairs fiercely stunning jewels with fruit rich in the velvety grips of decay. Immediately this editorial from September 2011 for Marie Claire France titled “Vanites” brings to mind the lushious, rotting fruit painted by Caravaggio. He might even be in awe of the irony here, as the jems from Van Cleef & Arpels, Cartier, and Dior Joailerie (among many others) burst forth out of the withering fruit. Curiously, their splendor is nearly eclipsed by the beauty of the languishing grapes… and is strangely inspiring.
