An Exhibition Of Luxury
Chopard Dubai Exhibition is taking place from the 27th of April until the 3rd of May in the grand Dubai Mall (during the opening and closing hours of the mall). This exhibition will showcase Chopard pieces including High Jewellery creations from the Red Carpet Collection who will be launched during the Cannes Film Festival, and High Horlogery timepieces from the L.U.C Collection.
The House of Chopard, is for the 15th consecutive year, the Official Partner for the 65th Cannes Film Festival 2012. For the past 14 years, this prestigious Geneva-based watch and jewellery company has enjoyed an ongoing, fruitful and endearing association with the Cannes Film Festival. Every year, international celebrities step on to the red carpet wearing Chopard’s exciting unique creations, while the brand also hosts a number of special events and parties during the Festival.
The famous Palme d’Or, the iconic award of the Festival, has a delicately curved 18-carat gold stem with a small heart at its base, reminiscent of the symbol of the firm. The stem is adorned with leaves appearing to have been caught in mid-motion and it rests on a crystal cushion shaped like an emerald-cut diamond. This precious detail makes each Palme d’Or unique, as two crystals are never identical. All these Palmes are hand-crafted each year in the workshops in Geneva by talented craftsmen. Synonymous with talent and recognition, the emblem of the most famous Cinema Festival is henceforth inextricably linked to the story of the watchmaker-jeweller.
Each year since 2007, Caroline Scheufele, Chopard Co-President and Artistic Director, creates a new Haute Joaillerie collection composed of exceptional and unique models: the Red Carpet collection, launched at the Cannes Film Festival every year. The actresses who walk the famous “mounting the steps” the Festival wear these creations, as well as on other red carpets all over the world.
Chopard will also present major complications of the watch making art through the L.U.C. watches bearing Chopard's in-house movement manufacturing expertise. The L.U.C watches represent a superlative crowning accomplishment of work by the esteemed brand, and are manufactured in the company’s workshops in Fleurier, in the Swiss Jura.
