Kestos Vahiné Creation

This advertisement for Kestos was created in 1952. The image of a woman with her chin propped in her slender hands whilst she imagines wearing Kestos lingerie is an enchanting testament to a liberated mood in France after the war. The text means, in English, ‘the gift she dreams of’. The name ‘Vahine’ recalls the alluring Tahitian women painted by leading French impressionist Paul Gaugin. This ad’s expansive use of white will add space to an interior, rather than introducing visual clutter.

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.
