Fabergé, Tiffany, Lalique—these great designers came together only once to display their goods in what was probably the most opulent exhibition ever mounted. At the 1900 Exposition Universelle in Paris, the three strove to position themselves ahead of their many competitors in the luxury market, each presenting his jewelry and home adornments as high art. Their success is explored in this splendidly illustrated catalogue, which elucidates the prewar pinnacle of European culture. The array of displayed objects was mesmerizing: Tiffany glass, Easter eggs to dazzle the Czars, realistic insects created in precious materials as sinister decorations. Many of these bore influences of the advanced art of the time, such as Art Nouveau, Viennese modernism, and symbolism, and of styles from around the world. Four essays discuss the works in the context of their times, illuminate the high societies served by the three masters, and trace the cultural trends behind their extraordinary creations. A treasure of accompanying photographs shows the individual exhibits, scenes from the World's Fair, and the glitterati who wore the jewelry.

This book explores the intricate relationship between luxury and craftsmanship, using brand-based case studies and consumer behavior to do so. In addition to revealing how the artification of luxury affects consumer behavior with branding and traditions, it discusses how sustainable luxury could not only offer a vehicle for more respect for the environment and social development, but could also be a metaphor for the cultures, art traditions, and innovations of various nationalities, continuing the legacy of local craftsmanship.

Increasingly, luxury brands join forces with the arts today. Yet, these cross-over collaborations do not constitute a homogeneous strategy, but become manifest in manifold forms and appearances. Regardless of their growing practical relevance for the creation of contemporary luxury brands though, the varied forms of Luxury Brand-Art Collaborations (LBACs) have remained largely unexplored to date. Olga Louisa Kastner aims at systematizing the dominating collaborative patterns between luxury brands and the arts. She empirically derives distinct types of LBACs, based on methodically developed attributes and a large number of real cases. Finally, the author describes the main characteristics of the identified types and illustrates them by prototypical cases.
