New tableware line for Christian Lacroix Maison

Sacha Walckhoff, creative director at Christian Lacroix Maison, has designed a collection of porcelain tableware. This range made by the Portuguese brand Vista Alegre delivers graphic lines, trompe-l'oeil effects and butterfly motifs with a touch of fantasy. 

As Sacha Walckhoff explained, this collection is "built around four main themes: "Sol y Sombra" -- with watercolor stripes, "Forum" -- engraved with images of 19th century monuments in Arles, "Picassiette" -- a Gaudi-style trompe-l'oeil mosaic of shattered plates and "Butterfly parade" -- symbolizing real or imaginary butterflies in flight. Each piece of this collection is threaded with intertwined gold and platinum.

The creative director of Christian Lacroix Maison since 2010, Walckhoff has launched several decor collections including a range of textiles, wallpaper and accessories made by Designers Guild, wooden decorative panels created in collaboration with Marotte, a range of stationery produced by Libretto as well as a collection of scented candles for Welton London.

For this tableware collection, Christian Lacroix Maison has collaborated with Vista Alegre, a Portuguese brand known for its high-end tableware, decorative objects and crystal.

    If there's one car that's particularly sought-after among today's well-heeled car collectors, a Ferrari 250 would be it. Usually it's the GTO variant, like the 1963 that sold for a record $52 million last year. A 250 of any sorts demands unfathomable cash, however, which is why we can but gawk at this 250 Testa Rossa. It's as close as any mere mortal will ever come to owning one.
