Elégance Nicolas

A debutante noses the bouquet of a fine wine. The most minimal of pencil lines create her form, while red ink conjures up her lips, bracelet, and painted nails. The light glints off these blocks of alluring colour. Her lavish, long lashes entice. Her calm, dormant eyes allow her to focus on the smell of the wine before she brings it to her lips. This 1955 ad for Nicolas is a master class in minimalism and a tribute to luxury.

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.
