After giv­ing us the highly an­tic­i­pated Art Fair Philip­pines and Art in the Park, its or­ga­niz­ers have added an­other an­nual event to mark on our cal­en­dar. This month, Dindin Araneta, Trickie Lopa, and Lisa Peri­quet un­veil their lat­est pro­ject, The None­such Fine Col­lectibles and Rar­i­ties, tak­ing place at the Penin­sula Manila. Billed as a “one-ofa-kind show­case of sto­ried ob­jects and ex­cep­tional qual­ity,” The None­such will cater to a broader range of con­nois­seurs as it fea­tures art, an­tiques, fur­ni­ture, jew­elry, books, maps, prints, and other rare col­lectibles. “Those in­ter­ested in art likely grav­i­tate to sin­gu­lar, finely wrought, pieces that speak of her­itage, carry in­ter­est­ing sto­ries, and tell of the mem­o­ries em­bed­ded in them,” ex­plains Lopa. Tak­ing its cue from long-run­ning fine arts and an­tiques fair in Europe, in par­tic­u­lar Mas­ter­piece London and the Euro­pean Fine Art Fair in Maas­tricht, None­such will fea­ture lead­ing pur­vey­ors of ob­jets d’art, in­clud­ing Tawal­isi An­tiques and Os­mundo for fur­ni­ture and home ac­ces­sories; Gallery Deus with its colo­nial and tribal Philip­pine arts; Unang Pana­hon for an­tique jew­elry, glass, frames and carv­ings; Gallery of Prints for an­tique maps and prints, and Leon Gallery for a wide range of art. Be­sides se­lect­ing the ex­hibitors, the fair’s or­ga­niz­ers have lined up a lec­ture se­ries to en­hance the vis­i­tor ex­pe­ri­ence over the three-day event. One of the ses­sions will fea­ture Em­manuel Breguet, gen­eral man­ager and in-house his­to­rian and ar­chiv­ist of the Swiss lux­ury watch­maker Breguet. Fly­ing in from Geneva for the event, Breguet will speak about the brand’s her­itage and other as­pects of fine watch­mak­ing.
