Darbel Everbest

This rather charming ad for clothing company Everbest from 1953 is an emblem of sophistication and opulence. Their clothing reflects the fashions of the time and the traditional gender norms which saw a resurgence after the grim and restrictive years of the war. The text in the bottom right of the ad reads “the elegant family”, evidently the consumer segment Everbest was targeting. This piece of vintage art can transport you to a time when France looked forward with optimism.

At VAA we deploy modern technology to preserve these antique illustrations. The uniquely hard-wearing frames we use are designed in Switzerland; their durability results from the process of anodising. Anodising is a surface treatment which protects and decorates aluminium using an anodic oxidation process. As a result of this, these frames are especially resistant to corrosion and heat, protecting this vintage art from wear and tear.
We frame each illustration ourselves in our workshop in Lausanne, Switzerland. The float glass we use is crystal clear with a very flat surface and carefully polished edges. The frames are 32.7 × 42.7cm (12.87″ x 16.81″). The result? We present you with a period illustration- a genuine antique- enclosed by a frame of the highest quality. In this way, we like to think we’re bringing modern technology and antique artistry together.
