For this second edition, The French Maison has been in charge of developing a glass bottle with a very exclusive design that makes it look very elegant. The design of the bottle is inspired by Art Deco and has always been responsible for meeting the highest standards.

Today marks two years of having made that first edition and these lovers of tequila and elegance have greatly improved the first edition of the exclusive drink. Both companies have been dedicated to developing a better quality of the Employer with great commitment for the craftsmanship and luxury.

Lalique has only produced 299 bottles of Pattern: Series 2. These are handmade and individually numbered in the Lalique glass factory located in the south of France. Although the design is quite exclusive, it is done in the traditional way trying to maintain and create the product as perfect as possible, modern techniques help a lot with the elaboration of the bottles, each of them is blown, pressed, cut, is recorded, polished and handsigned.

The straight lines and an elegant contrast between the transparent and matte finishes make this bottle represent in the best way the luxurious designs of Lalique. The design of the bottle was inspired by an Agave from the Tequila Patrón distiller plant in Mexico. The bottle cap has a rounded amber color that perfectly matches the tequila’s hue inside the bottle. It also represents the use of the patterned bee, engraved in pure gold. The presentation also includes a luxurious wooden cylinder where comes the bottle which has engraved the name Patrón and Lalique in a golden color that on comes out of any other tequila.

However, the bottle is not just the appeal of this product. The great distiller of Patrón, Francisco Alcaraz, and his great team was in charge of making an exceptional mixture of old aged tequila aged in oak barrels for more than seven years. The product is completely hand-carved for and aged in three different types of barrels; American oak, French oak, and Spanish sherry. A pattern in Lalique has a great aroma, bright crystalline color and a sweet flavor that comes from a mixture of apple, banana, pear, vanilla, pale agave, raisins, and walnuts. At the end, you will feel a pleasant taste with notes of oak, agave, fruit, and caramel.

Lalique L’Insoumis

lalique-l_insoumis-pour-homme-for-men

Luxury crystal and fragrance brand Lalique is launching a new masculine fragrance  L’Insoumis in September 2016, dedicated to the founder of the house Rene Lalique and his artistic spirit. The man who wears it is conceived as a charismatic, elegant and authentic individual who does not follow trends but creates them. He is a dreamer and a modern day adventurer.

The first thing you notice about Lalique new men’s fragrance, L’Insoumis, is the bottle. The contemporary Art Deco design of the Lalique L’Insoumis bottle is decorated with a relief of a fern, the motif that was first used on Lalique’s iconic Tourbillons vase from 1926. The fern symbolizes the free spirit that the fragrance is trying to convey. It’s what’s inside however, that is truly remarkable. Combining what some many would see as unconventional ingredients, L’Insoumis presents a very modern man at the heart of its history-steeped bottle.

  • Top notes: bergamot, rum, basil
  • Heart: lavender, clary sage, black pepper

The composition belongs to the aromatic-woody fougere group, developed by perfumer Fabrice Pellegrin and produced with rich and high-quality ingredients. An intense aromatic combination of bergamot, rum and basil prelude to the classic masculine heart of lavender, black pepper and clary sage. Haitian vetiver, moss, patchouli and the Clearwood molecule end the composition.

Peace and freedom: Nina Ricci L’Air du Temps Parfum by Lalique

L’air du Temps  was created in 1949, when Nina Ricci’s son Robert sought to expand the house’s business into perfumery after their first succesful fragrance, Coeur Joie . Sinds then a true golden classic, L’air du Temps is a rare creation that transends the changes of time. Yes this is an old fragrance, but it is one that is truely ageless!! In its original production, the perfume was contained in a bottle designed by Rene Lalique.

Nina Ricci L'Air du Temp lalique

Laliques famous crystal bottle, two doves, a symbol of love and peace

This fine fragrance has delicate topnote blends of jasmine and gardenias nestled in basenotes of sandalwood and iris. I find this romantic scent that is well blended and wears long. May not be for everyone, but do not pass up a chance to at least try it out

In the famous Lalique bottle it’s availble in several sizes: 7,5ml 15m and 29ml as perfume, and 1250ml as Eau de Toilette. Over the years, many (precious) limited editions appeared, designed by Lalique, and are now true collectors items.

Lalique Amethyst

Lalique Amethyst Eau de ParfumLalique Amethyst Eau de Parfum

Amethyst is a feminine perfume by Lalique. This beautiful exclusive scent was launched in 2007 and the fragrance was created by perfumer Nathalie Lorson.

Of course, Lalique itself is the designer of the bottle, and it was inspired by René Lalique’s objects for bathroom, Epines (‘Thorns’) designed in 1920. The bottle describes the scent very well, if i could give this smell a colour it would be ‘purple’ of course. The crystal bottle for the perfume extract carries crystal blackberries on the top and is clothed in seductive…. purple.

edp-100ml-with-box_2_.jpgLalique Amethyst Eau de Parfum

Honestly, I’m not a fan of modern floral and fruity fragrances (mostly they are too artificial). But Lalique Amethyst is one of the most surprising fruity perfumes, surprising in its longevity. I thought the top notes of fruit would disappear, but they stuck around and overshadowed the floral heart. It smells a little bit like grape bubblegum, but not in an off-putting way and isn’t saccharine like other perfumes with similar fruit notes. The blackberry and blackcurrant are prominent and eventually dissipate into a slightly soapy, clean musk drydown. Amethyst also seems versatile in that it can definitely be layered with other perfumes that have stronger drydowns and are woodier in nature

Lalique-Crystal-Amethyst-Parfum-ExtractLalique Crystal Amethyst Parfum Extract (Click photo to enlarge).

I love the smell of pure black current in the top notes. It’s so fresh and juicy,- simply wonderful! The heart beats with the accords of intoxicating rose spiced with pepper, peony, lily and sweet, floral ylang-ylang. The base is powdery and soft with Bourbon vanilla and sensual musk.

  • Top: Blackberry, Blackcurrant, Rasberry
  • Heart: Floral Notes
  • Base: Musk, Vanilla

Amethyst has become my signature scent. I should confess that it’s a very sophisticated perfume, not provocative nor sexy, but concentrates on mind not body. This fragrance have much personality, and definitively confirm the very good taste of Nathalie Lorson. . Men and women alike are very attracted to this wonderful scent. Very nice everyday-scent.

It is available as 50 ml and 100 ml Eau de Parfum and 50 ml Perfume extract.

 

Lalique Crystal Architecture by Mario Botta

Lalique by Mario Botta

Mario Botta, the celebrated Swiss architect, was born in Mendrisio, Ticino in 1943. After serving an apprenticeship in Lugano, he attended art school in Milan, followed by studies at the University School of Architecture in Venice, obtaining his diploma in 1969 under the guidance of Carlo Scarpa and Giuseppe Mazzariol. During this period, he had the opportunity to meet and work with Le Corbusier and Louis I. Kahn.

Mario Botta

Portrait of Mario Botta by © Beat Pfändler

At the very start of his career in 1970, the first buildings he constructed were already characterized by the intense research that his many later creations across the world would epitomize. Parallel to his architectural career, he pursued his educational interests, teaching and contributing to conferences, seminars and critical reviews at various schools of architecture in Europe, Asia, the USA and Latin America.

His work has earned him widespread international recognition and there have been numerous exhibitions devoted to his creative designs. He has received more than 50 awards and accolades.
His most notable works to date include: the San Francisco Museum of Modern Art, Evry Cathedral, the MART Museum in Rovereto, Italy, the Tinguely Museum in Basel, the Church of Santo Volto in Turin and the Tschuggen Bergoase Hotel in Arosa.

Géo, a masterful design characterized by its variable geometry and transparency

A perfect square, patterned with three-dimensional, pyramid-like shapes. A circle in the centre with a halo of pure crystal, drawing and pleasing the eye. The diffraction of the sun’s rays…

Sketch of the Geo vase by Mario Botta

A masterful design characterized by its variable geometry and transparency, Géo epitomizes what unites the crystalmaker Lalique and the Swiss architect Mario Botta, an artist working with volume.”This vase can be interpreted as the miniature of a large palace”, notes Mario Botta, many of whose architectural projects show a similar appreciation for crisp lines and sharp angles.

Architecture is the masterly, correct and magnificent play of masses brought together in light

Mario Botta, quoting Le Corbusier

Visually, Géo refers to the Palazzo dei Diamanti in Ferrara, a source of inspiration for the architect, who has never stopped experimenting with form in forty-five years of practice.

Fired by Lalique’s master glassmakers, Botta’s sketch ‘crystallized’ into a remarkable Limited Edition: 250 vases made of clear crystal, each one signed and numbered, with its own certificate of authenticity. Emerging from steel moulds at the crystal works, these receptacles of light reflect the excellence of Lalique craftsmanship in every facet, matte or shiny.

This vase can be interpreted as the miniature of a large palace

Lalique GEO vase, art edition, 40 x 40 x 17 cm, limited and numbered edition of 8 pieces + 2 HC in midnight-blue crystal, lost wax technique

René Lalique refreshed the art of crystal-making by introducing new styles, first Art Nouveau then Art Deco. He knew that his real material, the one he actually had to ‘sculpt’, was light. This ambition has been perpetuated in the Géo art edition by eight master craftsmen (Meilleurs Ouvriers de France), in line with house tradition.

They chose the venerable ‘lost wax’ technique, which the master himself had revived and updated. The process, which originated in China 3,000 years ago, is used to cast bronze sculpture. Refractory plaster is moulded around a wax model that melts during firing in the kiln. The hollow left in the mould is three-dimensional, ready to receive the crystal. In the case of Géo, the crystal remains in the kiln for 20 days.

Before firing Géo, the artisans carefully craft the circle in the centre, conceived by the architect as the ‘core’ of the work. Here, Lalique’s expertise meshes perfectly with that of Botta. To describe his encounter with crystal, Botta quotes Le Corbusier: architecture is ‘the masterly, correct and magnificent play of masses brought together in light’. The Lalique Géo vase confirms this, brilliantly

Steinway & Sons collaborates with Lalique

 

heliconia-by-lalique-s_1280x566

Throughout the 153-year history of Steinway & Sons, there has been a tradition of honouring special occasions by inviting leading designers to create exceptional instruments. Over the years, these limited editions have delighted privileged owners. These precious instruments are unique masterpieces featuring the individual style of each designer.

Steinway is the only piano on which the pianist can do everything he wants. And everything he dreams.

Vladimir Ashkenazy, pianist & conductor

Maison Lalique joins forces with innovative fine pianomakers Steinway & Sons for the production of Heliconia piano, following the example of many other talented designers and artists throughout the last hundred years who have collaborated with the piano makers.

 

square-lalique-3.jpg

Both brands have long histories of excelling in craftsmanship – Steinway & Sons has been synonymous with high standards for more than 160 years, while Lalique’s creations have all been produced in the factory in Alsace since 1888.

Being two luxury brands that share the same philosophy about craftsmanship, perfection and art, it is no surprise that Heliconia is an excellent example of their quest for perfection in all aspects of the creative process. In order to bring the instrument to life, the designers decided to work with a signature motif from the Lalique archives – the Heliconia flower.

 

THE HELICONIA DESIGNED BY LALIQUE

The result is a piece of art that reflects Lalique’s signature of contrasting clear and frosted crystal. The designers opted for a classic design from Lalique’s rich archives. Originally designed in 1992 by Marie-Claude Lalique — the granddaughter of René Lalique – the heliconia flower forms the perfect décor for these fine instruments.

Lovingly crafted at the Lalique manufactory in Alsace, 75 crystals that are pressed, fashioned, cut, engraved, polished and signed. They make the instrument shine, while silver-colored inlays are decoratively arranged into the design, creating interesting reflections as well as a sense of clarity.
