LONDON (AP) — London's decorative arts and design museum, the Victoria and Albert Museum, will host a major exhibition on ocean liners that includes relics from the Titanic.

The exhibition that opens in February will explore the nostalgia for the golden age of ocean travel and its portrayal in pop culture. Most notable among its 250 showcased pieces is a diamond-and-pearl Cartier tiara saved from the ship Lusitania in 1915, as well as a panel fragment from the Titanic's first-class lounge.

Architecture, engineering and fashion all figure prominently in the show.

The exhibition, now in the U.S., goes beyond the ships to look into the lives of famous passengers such as Marlene Dietrich and Elizabeth Taylor. It also examines the work of artists, designers and architects inspired by the ocean liner look.
