In search of genuine beauty
"Mantilla combs are fascinating objects with beautiful floral designs and reliefs which come to mingle with lace. These exceptional pieces inspired Guêpes & Papillons to present you with bold and modern hair jewellery. While holding onto the haughty height which makes these combs so unique, G&P decided to purify the lines in order for them to accompany you with simplicity." Camille, founder of Guêpes & Papillons, explained.
The 19th and 20th centuries mark the peak of ornamental combs. Around 1900, the most fabulous creations are displayed during jewellers’ exhibitions. To meet its creators ’ideas, the comb industry is developing new avant-garde techniques of horn coloration, stone inlay and sculpture. However, the emerging of the galalith and then of plastic injection will put an end to this research.
Uncovering a buried savoir-faire
