EVENT: Lalique at its finest


It is the third time when I was invited to a Lalique event. I was wondering if this company could surprise me once again after the two excellent events I attended before. Each event is so unique and packed with new information. The name Lalique is synonymous of luxury and high quality cut crystal, created and invented by René Lalique in 1888 – but I am sure my fellow followers know that already.

I opened the heavy glass door of the Lalique shop. It is not really just a shop. It is a beautiful living room, furnished with masterpieces of furniture, decorated with artistic cut crystals. A scent of flowery perfume is in the air, scents, which remained unchanged for decades - Bacchantes. The rose, jasmine, vanilla and sandalwood scent puts you in an imaginary world of women alluring look, wearing high heels and taking graceful steps surrounded by a aristocratic eniroment. This ultimate and timeless perfume bottled into a beautiful piece of Lalique crystal and wanted by many collectors goes for EUR 1200. Never try to count the drops you use – this limited edition will let you feel more than privileged.

Crystal sculptures, vases, carafes and glasses glow under handmade crystal chandeliers, which no one touched with bare hands while in production. The everlasting inspiration of master Lalique were flowers, animals and not least women. It can be recognized everywhere - on the necklace that adorned lily of the valley - Muguet or Dragonfly - Libellule, the rings and cufflinks with the woman's face, or the scented candle, which scent will guide you through fifteen countries, from Bolivia (chili) to Moscow (leather). If you would ask me, which one is the most beautiful fragrance, I would not be able to answer.

If you are passionate about high-quality materials such as cut crystal and would like to know more about the brand Lalique, you surely will be interested in the Lalique Museum in Wingen-sur-Moder, near the city of Strasbourg. Nearby is also the Hotel Vila René Lalique located, equipped only with luxurious and individual Lalique furniture. The villa has only six indescribable beautiful stylished suites. The hotel was originally a villa in which René Lalique lived and used to work. Do not worry about the food, you get served by the two Michelin stars restaurant belonging to the residence.

Už je to tretíkrát, čo som bola pozvaná na Lalique event. Zdalo by sa, že po tretíkrát už vás nemá čo prekvapiť, ale opak je pravdou. Každý event je unikátny a nabitý novými informáciami. Kto z vás ešte nepozná Lalique, tak ešte raz – je to francúzska značka, ktorej meno dal umelec sklár René Lalique v roku 1888. Meno Lalique je synonymum luxusu, brúseného krištáľu a kvality.

Blížim sa do obchodu Lalique. Otváram ťažké sklenené dvere. Nie, to ani nie je obchod. Ani zďaleka sa mu nepodobá. Je to krásna obývacia miestnosť, zariadená dokonalými kusami nábytku, dekorovaná brúseným krištáľom. Ako inak. Vo vzduchu rozvoniava parfum, ktorý už desaťročia vonia stále rovnako – Bacchantes. Vonia po ružiach, jazmíne, vanilke a sandalovom dreve, po ženských podpätkoch, ladnom kroku a vyzývavom pohľade. Zberateľská záležitosť za EUR 1200. V duchu počítam, koľko by stála jedna jediná kvapka.

Krištáľové súsošia, vázy, karafy a poháre žiaria pod ručne vyrobenými krištáľovými lustrami, ktorých sa nikto počas ich výroby nesmel holými rukami ani len dotknúť. Večnou inšpiráciu majstra Laliquea boli kvety, zvieracia ríša a v neposlednom rade ženy. Je to vidieť všade. Na náhrdelníkoch, ktoré zdobia konvalinky Muguet a vážky Libellule, na prsteňoch či manžetových gombíkoch s tvárou ženy, či na voňavých sviečkach, ktorých vôňa vás bude sprevádzať po celom svete, pätnástimi krajinami, od Bolívie (chili) až po Moskvu (leather). Keby ste sa ma opýtali, ktorá vôňa je najkrajšia, vyberala by som dlhé hodiny.

Ak si potrpíte na kvalitné materiály ako je napríklad brúsený krištáľ a chceli by ste o ňom a o značke Lalique vedieť viac, určite vás bude zaujímať múzeum Lalique vo Wingen-sur-Moder, blízko mesta Štrasburg. V blízkosti sa taktiež nachádza hotel Vila René Lalique, zariadený luxusným nábytkom Lalique. Vila má len šest neopísateľne krásnych spální. Hotel bol pôvodne vila, v ktorej René Lalique žil a pracoval. Ukrýva haute cuisine reštauráciu, ktorá získala až dve Michelinské hviezdy. Blahoželám.
