NEW YORK — Lalique will on Tuesday unveil its second fine jewelry collection and release a limited-edition clock in partnership with Parmigiani Fleurier.
“The story is the continuation of the first one, but it’s totally different because last year was Lalique’s rebirth [of fine jewelry]. This year it’s our flight with the element air. This is a love story,” the brand’s jewelry head designer, Quentin Obadia, said, seated in the company’s new Interiors showroom on Fifth Avenue in the Flatiron District here. He explained that the inspiration for the nearly 100-piece Soulmates collection came from the story of Ethos and the Greek goddess Psyche, who was half woman and half butterfly.
