The one-of-a-kind Purple Heart Cire Perdue designed and created by Elton John and LALIQUE raised $80,000 USD. The auction took place at the Foundation’s March 4 Academy Awards Viewing Party auction in Los Angeles with 100% of proceeds benefiting the Elton John AIDS Foundation (EJAF), a leader in the global effort to end AIDS. All proceeds from the auction will benefit EJAF’s lifesaving work. This exceptional sculpture is a heart form that was chosen because it is a universal symbol of love and the color purple signifies spirituality and emotion versus materialism, the same core values expressed by the ELTON JOHN MUSIC IS LOVE collection. “The heart is inspired by the Tourbillons motif, an iconic and recognizable LALIQUE design, and includes a clef symbol that embodies the name of the collaboration, ELTON JOHN MUSIC IS LOVE,” says Marc Larminaux, Artist & Creative Director of LALIQUE. “Love is ultimately what guides…

Combining Mexico’s mastery of artisanal tequila and  France’s crown jewel of the crystal industry, once again Patrón tequila and LALIQUE have come together for an exclusive collaboration: Patrón en LALIQUE: Serie 2. In 2015, Patrón and LALIQUE released to great acclaim the first in this landmark series, Patrón en LALIQUE: Serie 1. That limited edition crystal decanter was influenced by René Lalique’s early Art Nouveau style, which he pioneered in the late 19thth century. In the 1920s, René was one of the moving spirits and principal influencers of Art Déco. Following that progression, for Patrón en LALIQUE: Serie 2, LALIQUE’s master artisans have created a stunningly elegant crystal decanter inspired by Lalique’s signature Art Déco design and avant-garde vision. Both France and Mexico share a claim to the Art Déco movement, and this extraordinary bottle captures that collective design sensibility. Like-minded and committed to quality and craftsmanship “Both Patrón and…

An age-old symbol of wisdom, fertility or seduction, the inspiration for the precious LALIQUE crystal bottle of the 2018 Limited Edition has always fascinated artists. It is this strikingly modern piece – a snake whose three coils form the body of the vase – which the House of Lalique reinvents for its new Limited Edition. To fashion the sumptuous “Séduction” flacon, the master-glassmakers of the Cristallerie Lalique have drawn on their peerless know-how, based on the experience of many years. This seductive fragrance is a bouquet redolent of Paradise found, where rose offers its velvety petals to a jasmine-scented breeze, and the spicy warmth of night-scented stock enhances the powdery softness of iris. A trio of forbidden fruit exerts its irresistible charms: sweet juicy blackberry, crisp green blackcurrant leaves and tart mouthwatering pear. The bewitching scent exerts its ultimate temptation…
