Vintage has become a way of life Vintage has become a way of life, with people of all ages buying old clothes and jewellery as a way of resisting the dominance of globalised fashion.

Shoppers at the Foire de Chatou will find antique jewellery, period clothing and designer accessories by Chanel, Dior, Yves Saint Laurent, Lacroix and Jean Paul Gaultier. Lydie Perroquin and Annie Bézard are specialists in vintage luxury fashion.

Eric de Mont specialises in American jewellery from the 1950s and ‘60s, and Frédéric Carrière in antique jewellery, bags, scarves and accessories. Gilles Payet will be present for the first time at the Foire de Chatou.
Antique jewellery is increasingly appreciated as a way of combining pleasure with a safe financial investment. Several dealers, including Claudette Picard, Geoffray Riondet and Jérôme Golay (Ambre de Chaldée) will show jewellery and watches from all periods. Visitors to the fair will find high-end jewellery by Cartier, Chaumet and Van Cleef & Arpels, and by designers not as well known in France, such as the Swiss Gilbert Albert, whose work will be shown by Jérôme Golay.

 

While Art Deco remains popular, 1970s style is coming back strong. A good example is a diamond and white-coral Van Cleef & Arpels ring from the ‘70s called “Philippine”, to be found on the Riondet stand.


Blandine Cambazard, a gemologist and  expert on modern and antique jewellery, is present at the fair to provide advice and expertise for visitors.
