Storytelling Photography | Issue 35
There is nothing like a great love story born out of a passion for art. That is the case with the legendary tale of Estelle Arpels and Alfred Van Cleef. Over a century since their union in 1895, Van Cleef & Arpels still represents beauty, love, and passion to this day. The daughter of a precious stone merchant, and the son of a lapidary and diamond broker have forever enshrined their love, and managed to give it immortality through the outstanding craftsmanship of the French jewellery maison Van Cleef & Arpels.
What better issue to feature this love story in than the Storytelling Photography issue?
This year, to commemorate their innovation, quality and style, Van Cleef & Arpels are for the second consecutive year, participating in Design Days Dubai as luxury partner and sponsor.
Design Days Dubai is the first design fair of its kind in the Middle East, bringing the most exclusive selection of purchasable, limited edition design to the region. It is a showcase of rare or unique furniture, objects d’arts and design works, held from March 18-21, 2013, to coincide with Art Week, the city’s premier art event.
We at Soura Magazine are quite proud to be partnering with Design Days Dubai and Van Cleef & Arpels as a media partner. In this issue, you will find a complimentary supplement that highlights Van Cleef & Arpels singular craftsmanship of the ZIP Necklace, a truly elegant and exclusive work of art that is bound to transform any woman, and elevate her to new heights of beauty.
We are also proud to be partaking in Design Days Dubai, a true meeting of fine art and exclusive luxury design, the first and only of its kind in the region.
This issue is not only about storytelling photography, but it’s also about the timeless and magical story of precious jewellery born out of true love.
Enjoy the stories, and enjoy the magic!
