In a new exhibition and fashion collaboration between Lalique, Jeremy Scott and the SS Normandie at New York Citys South Street Seaport Museum, visitors will be able to get a glimpse into the long lost world of luxurious ocean liner travel.
Featuring interior artifacts from the SS Normandie (whose maiden voyage was in 1935 and carried passengers like Marlene Dietrich, Salvador Dali, and Grace Kelly) the exhibit will feature original furnishings, passenger photographs, video footage, uniforms, fashion accessories, and commemorative items from Normandies maiden voyage. This is truly something not to be missed, as the designers of the interior included illustrious names such as Hermes, and Emile-Jacques Rulhmann.
In honor of the opening, Lalique (one of the original designers aboard the SS Normandie) has created a limited edition version of their Cabochon ring that will carry a special Normandie engraving. The originals were released at the time of the ships inauguration, and are now on display at the Metropolitan Museum of Art. Adding an element of the modern world, fashion wunderkind Jeremy Scott has also designed the exhibition t-shirt in a classic old-world deco vibe.
While you might not be able to afford a luxury cruise sometime soon, you can certainly pop by the South Street Seaport Museum and check out the exhibit. You can also pick up the limited edition Jeremy Scott t-shirt (available in mens and womens sizes) and your own Cabochon ring at the Seaport New York Museum store starting February 15th.
