Fashion for Jewels: 100 Years of Styles and Icons

Culture Watch

Although jewelry may have been born out of a means to express one’s wealth, in the last century it’s become more about expressing one’s style. In a new book, Fashion for Jewels: 100 Years of Styles and Icons, British Vogue editor Carol Woolton explores how the relationship between jewelry and fashion came to exist as it does today.

Woolton cites no less than Louis Cartier as being a key influence on this budding relationship when he opened his store in Paris in 1899 beside the House of Worth, a leading couturier, in order to let their clients coordinate their jewels with their dresses. Fast forward more than 100 years to this Fall’s couture shows, which for the first time included haute joaillerie on its fiercely guarded schedule, and it’s clear this relationship is here to stay.
