Fabergé Makes Historic Return to London
After almost a century away, prestigious Swiss jeweller Fabergé has returned to London to open a new flagship in the upmarket district of Mayfair.
The new store on Grafton Street is situated half-way between the locations of Fabergé’s previous two London sites, Bond Street, followed by Dover Street. The latter closed its doors in 1915 due to the repatriation of Russian resources at the beginning of World War I.
The store design echoes the jeweller’s Geneva flagship, with a lilac and gold patterned façade reminiscent of the iconic enamelling technique with which Fabergé has become synonymous. The interiors present a similarly jewel-like sensibility fuelled by a warm golden palette, ornate chandeliers and antique-style fixtures.
A new boutique on New York’s Madison Avenue will open in 2012, and Fabergé is now also available in luxury London department store Harrods.
