"Male Coquetries" by Marie Masson

The “Mirabilia” exhibition at the Mazlo gallery features designer jewelry inspired by the cabinet of curiosities. Some of the pieces that really appealed to me were by the young designer Marie Masson, who explores and disrupts gender issues with a series of brooches based on male rituals and toiletries. Using her favorite materials (human and animal attributes like fur, hair, skin and horse hair), she suggests the shaving brush or hairs stuck to the washbasin after shaving.
