Lancôme Marrakech

This bold advertisement was created for Lancôme’s ‘Marrakech’ perfume. It dates from 1947, the year that ‘Marrakech’ was launched. Illustrated by the prolific painter, designer and illustrator Edmond Maurice-Pérot, it dramatically centres the bottle designed by the famous Georges Delhomme. ‘Marrakech’ was a truly exotic perfume, both seductive and floral. An oriental fragrance, Marrakech had a dominant rose note on a leather base. With its sandy beach and swaying palm trees, this image speaks to this perfume’s balmy, Eastern theme.

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.
