On the occasion of the Gala Milanese launch, PIAGET brought to life a core value of its illustrious Maison as the watchmaker hosted a unique exhibition in Dubai between the 3rd of October and 15th of November, 2016. Located at the Fashion Dome in Mall of the Emirates, the exhibition was housed in a striking installation designed by renowned artist, Piergil Fourquie, similar to the brand’s fitting at Art Dubai earlier this year but three times in size.
Commenting on his work of art, Piergil Fourquie said, “Through this installation I wished to express the radiance inherent to all Piaget creations - this supreme brilliance that embellishes those who wear each piece, and also the different shapes that appear when light is reflected off them.”
Born in the 1970s, a period pervaded by freedom, boldness and extravagance, the Limelight Gala bears eloquent testimony – alongside cuff-watches and sautoir-necklace models – to the inimitable Piaget style based on a powerful design vocabulary that appealed to the jet-set and countless celebrities of the time. Revisited for the first time in 2013 on a satin strap, it now appears in an exclusively gold-clad version featuring a Milanese mesh strap complementing its generous curves.
