THROUGH THE LOOKING GLASS AT LALIQUE

Last week we caught up with the lovely people at the Lalique, Haviland, and Daum NY showroom for a special preview of Lalique’s new fall collection, Hommage  A Rene Lalique – commemorating the 150th anniversary the brand’s eponymous designer by releasing some of his original designs. It was hard to believe we were in the center of Madison Square Park, when we were given Parisian treatment with champagne and truffles – and when a tour of the showroom revealed innumerable treasures crafted in the unmistakable aesthetic of Lalique. Among these classics was the Red Serpent Vase – a ruby-colored jewel of a vase shaped in the coiling form of a viper. An original recently sold at auction in London for around $40,000 – the new release will retail for considerably less to the discerning collector. We were also pleased to see the brand introduce some new interior design items to the mix as well.  The beautiful Perles mirror, which comes in three different sizes, could transform any home into a palatial setting worthy of Versailles. Last but not least, the brand is currently working on a set of dinner plates called the Anemone collection.  The set, now in prototyping, comes in both gray ombre and an off-white color, and each plate has a detachable floral emblem which can double as a holder for utensils.
