25 Years Gem Kingdom at HP France Tokyo

Dutch jewelry brand Gem Kingdom has been sold for about 15 years at H.P. France Bijoux Tokyo.

This year Gem Kingdom celebrated their 25th anniversary with an exhibition at Museum Coda; a spin-off of this exhibit was held at the Tokyo boutique of H.P. France Bijoux. Mimi Berlin’s Traumhauser/Dreamhomes were (a small) part of that presentation.

Gem Kingdom Jewelry at Coda Museum

Gem Kingdom Jewelry at Coda Museum

This year, 2015, Dutch jewelry label Gem Kingdom celebrates it’s 25th anniversary. They do that with a retrospective exhibition at Museum Coda in The Netherlands. Gem Kingdom was founded in 1990 by designers Johanna Titselaar and Bernard Jongstra, their first “ad campaign” featured a poodle wearing a GK necklace. During the opening, (May 31, 2015) of the exhibition they revived this image by entering the museum lobby accompanied by two Standard Poodles. Fiona Hering, fashion editor of Vogue NL, opened the celebration with an entertaining speech. (see party snaps HERE)

Gem Kingdom created a wonderful exhibition, showcasing their jewelry in an art window of 3 meters high and 37 meters long, incorporating objects and images to show “The Gem Kingdom Atmosphere”. Walking from the left past this huge window, which starts with an image collage wall with Baby Statue “Josephine” as centerpiece, you pass by various chapters of Gem Kingdom Design. Like a.o. the first ever collection with a Giant Poodle, made entirely out of moss, created for this exhibit by Andreas Verheijen. The Wall ends at the “Hall of Fame” at the right, showing collaborations with artists, illustrators, photographers, brands (a.o. Céline), and more theatrical designs for musicals and movies. (click images above for more information)

We, at Mimi Berlin, collaborated with the Gem Kingdom as well in the past, our Boudoir Dreamhome/Traumhaus is incorporated in the exhibition, decorated with heart shaped jewelry and serving as backdrop for the Souvenir Baby Statue: “Home is where the Heart is”. We are honoured! (Open: May 31 /  October 25, 2015)
