The status of Memphis, ancient Men-nefer, as the earliest capital of a unified Egyptian state has gone unquestioned in Egyptology. Relying on reports written millennia later by the Greek visitor Herodotus, the legend is bolstered by the ring of pyramid fields, and the presence of the Early Dynastic cemeteries at Saqqara and Helwan. Surely, the administrative center of the Old Kingdom had to be at the heart of all this building.

In the early 20th century, the Place Vendôme in Paris became a one-stop shopping destination for the international elite. Van Cleef & Arpels–along with other major jewelers, art dealers, and couturiers—used the historic square’s beautifully preserved 18th-century interiors to display luxury goods in a picturesque (and profitable) manner. The close ties between art and la mode in turn-of-the-century Paris were forged in the Place Vendôme, where the fashions of tomorrow brushed up against the treasures of the past.
