As Good as Candy

Baccarat, the legendary French crystal manufacturer, recently launched the “Crystal Candy Set,” an aptly named collection designed by young visionary Jamie Hayon. The colorful and whimsical crystal confections that have names like “Harcourt Lolly,” “Bonbon Treasure,” and “Nuclear Pomegranate” were officially launched to the press at the Glasshouses in the award winning Chelsea Arts Tower last month. The spectacular space, which boasts floor to ceiling views of Manhattan, was the perfect venue for such a sweet and swanky affair.

Attendees were impressed by Hayon’s ability to meld the classic elegance, for which Baccarat is known, with a young and fresh vibe all his own. The pieces of the collection are decidedly exclusive. With only 25 numbered pieces of each design produced, these are sure to become the “it” collector’s item of the season.
