Today unknown by the general public, Maison Lacloche was one of the glories of Parisian jewelry for seven decades. While L'Ecole organizes the first retrospective ever dedicated to this prestigious House, the curator of the exhibition, Laurence Mouillefarine, tells, with a thousand anecdotes in support, the adventure of Lacloche brothers and Jacques Lacloche, from the late 19th century to the 1960s.
