Lancôme Magie Trésor

This avertissement from 1956 was created to advertise the fragrance Magie Tresor by perfume company Lancôme. The two women depicted in the image appear to be dressed in the lavish style adopted at the court of Louis XIV, the so-called ‘Sun King’. The use monochrome is similar to that seen in the 17th century fashion plates subsidised by the king to advertise the new French fashion of the time, Paris then beginning to outshine the former world-centre of fashion, Madrid, with an altogether more lavish and luxurious style.

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.
