Exceptional piece

From September 14th to 17th 2016, the Montaigne Committee, which aims at promoting French luxury abroad, has organized the “Promenade pour un objet d’exception” (Stroll for an exceptional design piece) where one can discover its house’s bags, objects and unique jewelry. The Valentino necklace by the Italian, Alessandro Gaggio, is not to be missed. It echoes pieces found in parades featuring strange and scary creatures. With a hint of Italian Baroque and a slightly macabre romanticism, they are certainly not lacking in humor.
