Museum Piece

I recently went to MoMA to see the Lucian Freud show. The show is definitely worth checking out as it’s wonderfully curated and the portraits are deeply psychological and haunting at times. After walking through the show I headed to the Museum Shop that is chock full of wonderful housewares, jewelry, trinkets, Muji office supplies, and even fashion items, all of which are worthy of being museum pieces themselves. While the Beast tried on an Alessi silver watch, I checked out the jewelry counter and came across this exquisite and unusual necklace. I instantly imagined it paired with a little black dress from Vivienne Tam’s collection, the ultimate stunning cocktail party outfit. The necklace itself is quite delicate and light, and the deep rosy pink petals are a perfect complement to the thin gold chain. It’s the perfect memento for my MoMA visit, a museum piece that I can actually take home with me!

note: Unfortunately this item doesn't seem to be available online so you'll have to travel over to the store to get it.
