According to Tiffany & Co., their designs are “never discontinued, they are simply retired.” This refusal to close the door on past works has opened up a new limited edition collection for Dover Street Market.
The inaugural “Out of Retirement” collection consists of 18 items, eight of which are jewelry, while the remaining 10 are gift items. Each one is based on a design from the Tiffany archives and is designed to put an unexpected twist on holiday gift giving.
Certain pieces that have been pulled from the vaults were initially debuted in the early ’70s, while standout items include a silver fish flask, which references the age-old “drink like a fish” adage, and a pillbox shaped like a miniature Chinese takeout container.
The Out of Retirement holiday collection is available exclusively at London’s Dover Street Market from November 2015 through January 2016.
