Tiffany & Co.’s latest exhibition, which opened 10th June, is commemorating its 185th anniversary and 150 years in London. From high jewellery designs, to Tiffany’s famous window displays, to augmented reality, the new immersive experience has it all – including an area devoted to the classic “Breakfast at Tiffany’s.”
Tiffany’s first presented the ‘Vision and Virtuosity’ exhibition in Shanghai in 2019, but the brand has exclusively added new additions for England’s capital, including the black satin Givenchy gown worn by Audrey Hepburn as she peered into the store windows at Tiffany’s Fifth Avenue NY flagship in 1961’s “Breakfast at Tiffany’s” film.
The Saatchi Gallery show takes guests on a journey through gems, craftsmanship, and innovation, with over 400 artefacts from the brand’s history, including Empire Diamond of over 80 carats. So this exhibition surely encompasses all of Tiffany’s major milestones in appropriately grand fashion.
The ‘World of Tiffany’ chamber walks guests through the House’s codes and shares the objects that have helped Tiffany & Co become the global lifestyle jeweller it is today. The OG Tiffany Blue Box from the 1800s, as well as a Bone Cuff, made by Elsa Peretti and Schlumberger’s ‘Fleur de Mer’ clip owned by actress Elizabeth Taylor, are among the highlights of this chapter.
One Instagrammable space worth mentioning is the reimagination of the Tiffany storefront from Breakfast at Tiffany’s, complete with Audrey Hepburn’s Givenchy gown, her original script, and a Tiffany-branded cab. Audrey Hepburn’s personal annotated screenplay and the classic black dress she wore in the film’s opening sequence are on display in Tiffany’s apartment, along with composer Henry Mancini’s Oscar trophy for ‘Moon River.’
For the launch, Bridgerton’s Nicola Coughlan, Daisy Edgar-Jones, Blackpink’s Rosé, Sabrina Elba, and Gal Gadot were among the celebrities who attended the exhibition, which explored seven themes central to the long-standing brand’s identity.
The Tiffany Vision & Virtuosity Exhibition is currently on display at the Saatchi Gallery until August 19. Purchase your tickets here.
