HOT discovers the Christian Lacroix Maison tableware collection
The Maison Christian Lacroix Couture’s style has been unique, exuberant, colourful and baroque since it was founded in 1987. The Christian Lacroix brand expresses its energy and love of colour in many collections created by Sacha Walckhoff, the brand’s Creative Director, and brought to life in collaboration with the most prestigious houses. Bringing together the excellence of Christian Lacroix with exceptionally-experienced collaborators, the studio demonstrates its full talent by creating varied and unexpected Art de Vivre collections.
In 2017, the enthralling Christian Lacroix Maison tableware collection is on everyone’s wish list! A spring collection is bound to be vibrant and full of colour. But, this time, the brand surpasses all standards. It would not be an understatement to say that it has come out with pieces of art….which you could use on the table!
This bespoke tableware collection is a result of collaboration with Portuguese manufacturer Vista Alegre. It goes by the delightfully light name of “Rêveries”, a nod to the world of dreams.
The collection immediately transports one into a world gone by…a regal era where every small object exuded class and style. The Oriental style porcelain is covered with exuberant patterns, bestiaries and imaginary landscapes, inspired by the follies embellishing the gardens of the Château de Groussay. The meticulous prints speak of the painstaking work and has gone into the design. Each piece revels in minute detailing, filled with a concoction of bright and beautiful colours.
A delicate cutwork fruit bowl and a pair of richly ornate candlesticks complete the collection, that also includes a beautifully detailed platter and tea-set. Each piece has a blue lagoon halo and is outlined in platinum and gold, the signature of Christian Lacroix Maison.
Christian Lacroix once again brings out a magnificent collection…..where you can have your art and eat from it too!
