Portuguese porcelain and crystal brand Vista Alegre will showcase a tabletop collection with French couture icon Maison Christian Lacroix at the New York Tabletop Market at its new Forty One Madison showroom. The collection includes four mix and match lines.
Butterfly Parade features butterflies "flying" across each piece in a three-dimensional effect. Fórum drew inspiration from 10th century monuments from Arles, the Mediterranean city where the house of Christian Lacroix is located, and it also incorporates butterflies into the pattern. Sol y Sombra mixes Lacroix's bold signature watercolor lines with touches of platinum and gold. The mosaic on the biscuit Picassiette line was inspired by tromp-l'oeill techniques used by painters and artists from the Renaissance.
Vista Alegre's Maison Christian Lacroix porcelain tableware and giftware collection will also have its initial retail launch this month at Michael C. Fina in New York City, Gump's in San Francisco, Gearys in Beverly Hills and other "select retailers," according to the company.
