The Lalique "Muses" collection pays tribute to the Woman, a major source of inspiration of the House since its origins.
The female was both the object and the subject of René Lalique’s masterpieces. Daring for that period, he used the female form as a means of beautification, following the example of the Renaissance artists. Admiring Women, he often depicted them as an allegory, gracious and ethereal or voluptuous with an arresting sensuality and mysterious demeanour.
An ode to feminine beauty, Lalique’s craftsmanship plays with satin-finished crystal to evoke the velvety texture of skin.
To celebrate the 90th anniversary of the Bacchantes, Lalique gives a fresh insight into this iconic creation revolutionized through a Grand size highlighted with gold leaf, in a limited edition of 90 pieces.
Terry Rodgers – renowned as a painter of realistic scenes in very large formats, could not resist the appeal of crystal. It took two years, with the help of Lalique’s know-how, to come up with the perfect mold and capture the nine languid female forms on Rodgers’ vase.
