Shy of one year ago, Virgil Abloh teased a new limited-edition home collection at Art Basel Miami. The Crystal Clear collection, inspired by his “Figures of Speech” retrospective exhibition and served as a collaboration with French fine crystal manufacturer, Baccarat.
Comprising chandeliers, table vessels and drinking glasses, the Crystal Clear collection is presented as a mix of modernity, tradition, elegance and industrial codes.
Abloh and Baccarat announced the collection of ideas in separate Instagram posts last year. Now, the entire collection is available for purchase at fine retailers, such as Neiman Marcus, Harrod’s and Bloomingdales.
Daniela Riccardi, global CEO of Baccarat, said, “Working with Virgil was an amazing experience for our artisans at Baccarat. From our first meeting, Virgil had Crystal Clear in mind and could imagine how these geometrical shapes would elegantly dance together, suspended from a ceiling and sitting on a table. Our people in the Baccarat’s ateliers, without any hesitation, interpreted his vision and sketches relentlessly. Their unique skills and passion for perfection resulted in this amazing piece of art.”
