Lalique: Sophisticated with Spice

posted on | updated on | by Zuri Girl

Zuri Girl was able to get a glimpse of the upcoming winter lineup at Lalique, and it’s sure to entice both the modern and timeless aesthete. A legend for its iconic crystal, the name Lalique spans an array of creations— scarves, home furnishings, jewelry and fragrances among them.

While we might know the name as something from childhood that our mothers loved, its the new edge and flair that has truly revolutionized the brand, catching our fancy once again.


During our personal tour, we were especially delighted by the following exquisite Lalique creations: 

  • Languedoc crystal vase, reissue of original 1929 René Lalique design, in shape of a cactus flower, with accentuated relief (we prefer the bronze color– as shown in the picture!).
  • Encre Noire Pour Elle perfume: with top notes of bergamot and amber, this well-rounded scent has a deeply sensual warmth of its own, ideal for cold winter evenings.
  • Imperial Feathers scarf: inspired by Lalique’s sketches, these scarves blend designs of women, birds and flowers.
  • Voyage de Parfumeur candles & diffusers: a tour of the world, in scents, spices, and infusions that let you travel to destinations such as Bali, Mexico, Morocco and Japan. We especially love the scent from Antarcica: “The Snow”.

The strong lines, pure color palette, sense of heritage, and art-deco nuances of Lalique fit our taste perfectly; in truth, for us, Lalique is like Coco Chanel: never out of style.

Zuri Girl Tip: The Zurich flagship shop is steps away from Paradeplatz, right across from Nespresso, and around the corner from La Stanza. While you might start nearby for a coffee, stop by Lalique for a visit that will amplify your sensory experience.
