René Jules Lalique was a turn-of-the-century glass designer, renowned for his stunning creations of perfume bottles, jewelry, chandeliers, and even automobile hood ornaments. After attending Sydenham Art College, Lalique worked for Cartier, Boucheron and others. By 1890, Lalique was recognized as one of France’s foremost Art Nouveau jewelry designers and went on to be one of the most famous in his field, his name synonymous with creativity and quality. In 1907, Francois Coty hired Lalique to create perfume labels, later, the bottles produced by Lalique for the Coty brand helped to revolutionize the packaging and marketing of perfume. Lalique Limited Edition Perfumes are among the most expensive in the world.
Lalique has endured for over a century as the ultimate symbol of French luxury: continually pushing the limits of design by creating distinctive decorative objects and introducing limited edition works of art, each new collection reinvigorates Lalique’s cultural heritage, one that is eternally precious. The “Paysage d’Hiver” new collection takes its roots from Nature and the “Art Nouveau” movement.
Inspired by the eponymous pendant “Paysage d’Hiver”, a jewelry design by René Lalique from the turn of the century, this collection invites us to discover nature, poetic and mysterious. Evoking a fairy-like enchantment, frosted tree leaves and wild-rose berries are carved into crystal, their movement waiting to be freed by one breath of wind. This dreamlike and stylized universe is adorned with winter colors, satin-finish crystal and hand-painted platinum, warmed up with touches of hypnotic red or amber. A subtle elixir of exceptional know-how and daring creativity, Lalique, sculptor of light, immortalizes nature through crystal to reveal its essence. Enter this winter landscape, indulge in the essence of crystal and let yourself be captivated by its magic.
