BiennaleDesAntiquaires2014BlogHeaderFor the next 10 days, the Place Vendôme is host to arguably the most important event in the jewelry calendar: La Biennale Paris. While this curious mind remains stateside, the next best way to celebrate the beauty of such exquisite pieces is to curate a series of jewels that we admire. Each day from September 11 – 21, we will present a selection here, as well as on twitter @BeautifulCurio and Instagram @BeautifulCurious… stay tuned!

SautParis

“Always be yourself. Unless you can be a Unicorn.”

This simple thought has always charmed me and it came to mind this weekend, as I viewed the magical images of Saut Hermès on Instagram. Hermès has mastered the art of being itself and a unicorn!

Hermès, as a brand, is consistently genuine and true to their heritage, while infusing imagination, whimsy and grace in all things. The Saut Hermès riding exhibition at the Grand Palais in Paris this weekend is just one of many meaningful brand experiences (and a top level show jumping competition) that is a magnificent example of this. Witnessing “Metamorphosis”, a choreography by Bartabas with the Equestrian Arts Academy of Versailles, would have been an exquisite wonder to behold as much as the competition itself.
