Have you ever heard of Lacloche Frères? This family business, founded in 1892 and established since 1901 on rue de la Paix, in the heart of the Parisian jewelers’ district, enjoyed dazzling success until the early 1930s, when it suddenly disappeared. Relaunched by Jacques Lacloche in 1936, it closed permanently in 1967. Forgotten by the general public, but not by collectors, come and discover what made the success of this great Parisian jewelry Maison, as well as the reasons for its fall. A story to be rediscovered without moderation!

This guided tour will be broadcast live from the “Lacloche Jewelers” exhibition at L’ÉCOLE Asia-Pacific in Hong Kong.

Nicolas Luchsinger, President of Van Cleef & Arpels Asia Pacific, Director of the “Heritage” Collection

In addition to providing courses throughout the year at the permanent Paris and Hong Kong locations, L’ÉCOLE has expanded its educational programs worldwide with travelling editions featuring special courses, talks, publications and exhibitions in cities such as Tokyo, New York and Dubai.

L’ÉCOLE carries several research projects and partnerships with museums and academic institutions, including Musée des Arts Décoratifs (Paris), The Comédie-Française Museum (Paris), École Boulle (Paris), École des MINES ParisTech (Paris), Liang Yi Museum (Hong Kong) and also Hong Kong Design Institute (Hong Kong).
