From time to time, Trifari would contract with trend setting designers, icons of the day, to provide quot;Guestquot; items, or fashion suites as accents to the Trifari line of designs. Kunio Matsumoto, the author of these pieces, was among these contributing dignitaries. He was an accomplished Architect from Japan and was contracted by Trifari in the late 70’s, along with other notable names such as; Kenneth Jay Lane, Alfred Phillippe (Cartier), Benedetto Panetta, and earlier contributors, most notably Norman Bel Geddes. Kunio Matsumoto pieces tend to be bold, clean, modernist designs often featuring lavish splashes of Lucite. (See Lanvin era). This remarkable set (choker and earrings) is typical of the Lucite work he favored. The necklace is 18quot; in length. Earrings are 1quot; Dia clip-on. The pendant medallion is 2 1/4quot; Dia. A more current remarkable artist, working in this medium is Alexis Bittar. Worth investigating if you are fond of these designs. This set has been wonderfully maintained, in excellent vintage condition, and bears the imprint of Trifari as well as Kunio Matsumoto.
