Transparency was the star of the show this autumn at the Maison&Objet exhibition! Coffee tables, vases, lighting: the art glass...
Two weeks ago, The Socialite Family enjoyed the collection 34 by diptyque. From its heady fragrances to its astonishing coloured patterns. In the artistic den of Odin and Archibald, in the heart of the flea market of Saint-Ouen, there were every products of this third edition. We saw in these precious objects the will to take us to the 34, boulevard Saint-Germain, where, in 1961, Christiane Gautrot, Desmond Know-Leet and Yves Coueslant gave free reins to their imaginations. It is a particular spirit of mind, around fabulous finds, that today gives the name of “Bazaar” to this limited edition. It is a crazy heritage Charlotte Gastaut has got inspired of to make the fabrics. By reinterpreting the Légende, Prétorien and Paladin patterns in a contemporary way, the illustrator freely made new colour schemes and subtle matches of abstract forms, to which Libeco gives life in three linen objects. It is a charming excentricity that blows hot and cold on an established atmosphere. Evolving between pieces of art and Brazilian design, the guests could find their bearings thanks to the addictive scents of perfume that were skillfully placed. On the one side, there is Essence Insensées, in its prestigious bottle, like a gem. On the other side, Kimonanthe and its bewitching power made of osmanthus. Half-incense, half-leather, sometimes milk and apricot. It is an enchanting smell that cannot be classified. Even its stopper received a special attention, since it actually echoes the pearl necklace Christiane Gautrot, the co-founder of diptyque, made for the mythical address. But the collection 34 by diptyque does not end there. Cristaux, Reflet, Carrousel: Novelties deployed by the candlestick-like world whose systematical crafts know-how delights and dazzles us. From master glass-makers to specialists in paper or in old mirrors. That’s sure: the collection 34 by diptyque will go far.
On reconnaîtra, parmi cet ensemble d'objets précieux, la volonté de nous transporter au 34 boulevard Saint-Germain.
