Go inside the worlds of art, fashion, design, and lifestyle.
Beauty and grace were captured in the third act of the harmonious collaboration between Van Cleef & Arpels and the L.A. Dance Project. French dancer and choreographer Benjamin Millepied unveiled the final component to his Gems trilogy in London on June 24.
The world premiere of the ballet performance “On the other side” was held at Sadler’s Wells. Millepied’s company, the L.A. Dance Project, has been supported by the high jewellery maison for the last four years collaborating on the three-part ballet, with a score composed by Philip Glass. The colorful scenery was constructed by American artist Mark Bradford, and juxtaposed the solid boldness of the costumes designed by Alessandro Sartori.
The first chapter was staged in 2013, entitled “Reflections,” at the Théâtre du Châtelet in Paris. Then at the Olympia Theater in Miami was the second chapter, “Hearts & Arrows,” presented in 2014. American artist Barbara Kruger designed both the set and costumes for “Reflections” while the score was composed by David Lang. “Heart & Arrows” presented music by Philip Glass and a visual concept by Liam Gillick.
