Parfums de Lancôme

This ad for Lancôme perfumes was created in 1941. Light reflects off ribbons sprouting from a flower. On the ribbons is written the names of famous Lancôme fragrances: Cuir, Tropiques, Flèches, Peut-être and Kypre. The strong use of black in this image creates an impression of seduction and the forbidden, a characteristic emphasised by the titles of some of the fragrances. The lighter colour of the text at the bottom—’parfums de Lancôme’—brings out the shine of the flower at the centre all the more powerfully.

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.
