Faberge to launch art-focused journal for iPad

Periodical pays homage to journal written by Ballet Russes director.

Russian jewellery house Fabergé has unveiled plans to launch a dedicated art journal next month, called Mir Fabergé.

Inspired by Mir Iskusstva, the influential art journal and movement founded by Sergei Diaghilev, creator of the Ballet Russes, Mir Fabergé will mirror the writings of Diaghilev and his peers, with a focus on the arts.

The journal will bring together contemporary artists from a variety of creative disciplines including photography, film making, acting, dance and illustration.

Mir Fabergé will focus on six stories per issue, combining past and present events in the arts, with a keen eye on anecdotes from Peter Carl Fabergé’s own world, his clients and acquaintances, while featuring both original Fabergé objects and jewellery from contemporary Fabergé jewellery collections.

The first issue, which will be released for download onto the iPad on June 16, will include a photo-narrative of infamous ballet dancer Nijinsky, illustrations depicting the story of the discovery of Fabergé jewellery in old sweet tin in 1990s Moscow, and a photo story of the creation of Fabergé jewellery in contemporary Paris.

Tatiana Fabergé, great-granddaughter of Peter Carl Fabergé, said of Mir Fabergé: “My great grandfather believed in working with people from all the creative fields – from designers and goldsmiths to artists (including miniaturists), from engravers to enamellers to stonecutters and sculptors. His creations would not have been possible without such a philosophy. All of the world of art both inspired and influenced his creative vision.”
