VAN CLEEF & ARPELS
Van Cleef & Arpels, the century-old French jewelry firm, is the show’s primary sponsor and has supplied much of its megacarat menu: some 350 lavish pieces worn by royals, screen sirens and social swans. The extravagance isn’t the nauseous part; staggering displays of wealth don’t look out of place in this former Carnegie mansion. But allowing a luxury brand that’s still very much in existence to bankroll its own exhibition — one that often looks as if it were put together by the company’s creative directors — does not seem like a smart move, even if it draws A-listers to the opening-night gala.
