The power of jewellery, colour revolution and wearing tweed
There is something about the first long, dark nights of winter that make us crave things that sparkle. It’s perhaps for that reason that we’ve gravitated towards the theme of adornment in this episode. We discuss the history of jewellery with two peerless experts, head to the Dance Reflections festival by Parisian house Van Cleef & Arpels and visit a show exploring the pioneering colour of the Victorian era. Plus: we hear from a historian using objects to retell history through a female gaze and muse on the enduring allure of tweed.
