A pop-up will house current collections from the jeweler, as well as the “Fabergé Cinescope,” a digital touchpoint that allows consumers to photograph themselves wearing a piece of jewelry and then share it on social media. This reflects the heritage of portraiture in Fabergé eggs and other pieces from the house.
Russian fashion journalist Miroslava Duma, founder of Buro 24/7, is the person behind Fabergé’s Cinescope in-store.
Consumers can take their photo with the iPad-like interface situated in a vanity. A disk then spins to make them appear to be wearing the piece of jewelry they chose.
This spinning image was designed to look like a Victorian form of animation in which a disk with different photos on either side was spun to produce a tromp-l’oeil optical effect, where the images combine to form one.
