Also in Paris this September is the 26th Biennale des Antiquaires featuring 150 leading international art, antiques and fine jewelry dealers. After viewing Helene Rochas’ fine collection at Christie’s, be sure to scope out precious treasures like arms and armor, illuminated manuscripts, tapestries, jewelry and much more at the Grand Palais.


Over $50 billion worth of rare items will be featured this year.  New exhibitors include favorites from the likes of Bulgari, Piaget, Chanel, Van Cleef & Arpels, Harry Winston, Cartier and many more!


The legendary, Karl Lagerfeld is in charge of designing and decorating the event.  He will transform the venue into a late 19th Century shopping street with an antique hot air balloon inside the building.


This event cannot be missed!  It is the first time in 70 years that the Grand Palais is re-opening its Salon d’Honneur wing to the public.  See the newly opened wing and browse through tons of spectacular artifacts.  Maybe even treat yourself to something dazzling!
