The first Moscow boutique Chaumet, located in the prestigious Stoleshnikov Lane, is a joint project of the legendary brand with the JamilKo company. The historic facade of the 19th century, combined with modern interior decoration, perfectly reflects the new concept of Chaumet: "Face to face: history and modernity".
The interior of the boutique is designed in a modern, elegant style and is distinguished by purity of lines, where the warmth of exotic wood with a bronze coating is adjacent to engraved textured glass. The boutique's decorative solutions - iridescent burgundy stone, a blue carpet, wooden furniture decorated with elements of brass and bronze - are reminiscent of the design of Chaumet jewelry collections.
Jean-Michel Wilmotte, an architect, designer, designer of the Moscow boutique Chaumet, is known for his numerous projects in France and abroad, in particular, the plan for the development of the Champs Elysees in Paris (1994)
The boutique presents several Chaumet collections: a piece of high jewelry art - the Frisson collection, which contains themes of nature; jewelry from the Anneaux and Liens collections; the Class One and Khesis watches, as well as the new Dandy line of watches and jewelry for men.
The history of the House is closely connected with the European aristocracy: Napoleon himself was the first customer of Chaumet. At the same time, the most devoted fans of the House lived in Russia: in 1901, Chaumet had more than 6,000 Russian clients, among whom were the most noble aristocratic families, including the Romanovs' house.
In the year of its bicentennial, House Chaumet returns to Russia with the opening of its first exclusive boutique. In honor of this event, the brand presents in the State Historical Museum a collection of fifty of its finest jewelry from the time of Napoleon to the present day. The exhibition contains a variety of unique exhibits from all over the world, including from private collections: from the luxurious headset of the Empress Marie-Louise to the aigrette in the style of Mary Stuart; from a tie pin, custom-made for Count Anatoly Demidov, to the famous diadem created for the Parma branch of the Bourbon dynasty, and modern jewelry from the Frisson collection. The exhibition will take place from 17 to 21 June 2004.
