June 12, 2018, TTF High Jewellery inaugurated its first flagship store at 9 rue de la Paix in Place Vendôme, Paris. Since its opening, many celebrities from milieus of art, academic and fashion media have come to visit and paid eager attention. The flagship store inspired by the aesthetics of the Song Dynasty, as well as the high jewellery and commercial jewellery displayed ingeniously have drawn great attention and comments.
Eric Lefebvre, President of the Cernuschi Museum, commented: the literati landscape painting and calligraphy art of the Song Dynasty is a great collection of Han, Wei Jin and Sui Tang Dynasties, established a classic paradigm for the Yuan and Ming Dynasties, and provide reference for aesthetics and semiotic poetry that appeared in the 20th century in the West. Because the masterpieces of the Song Dynasty aesthetics are all majestic, elegant, meaningful, ethereal and timeless. The TTF brand is very far-sighted by using the aesthetics of the Song Dynasty as its inspiration!
"The jewellery creations made by TTF are of unparalleled splendor and have a halo of the high Chinese poetic tradition. Thanks to them, the European public has been able to discover the innovations of Chinese contemporary art, "said Pierre Carron, vice-president of the Academy of Fine Arts.
