A year ago, Cristal d’Arques embarked upon the creation of a new identity to better represent “casual chic”. Today, the brand has renewed almost all its collections including three that brilliantly showcase this rebirth: Macassar, Architecte and Rendez-vous.
Macassar - Endless pleating
With their straight-cut lines, the stemmed glasses from the Macassar collection take us into the haute-couture world of Art Deco. The glasses are decorated with a refined fluid pleating, from their elegant stem through to their rim and harmonious symmetrical lines. The glasses' various forms celebrate, through the unique radiance of crystal, a freedom of style and the precious understatement of cut-sides combined with curves.
Architecte - Faceted geometry
With their rounded waves and ridged edges, the heavybased straight tumblers in the Architecte collection seem to come straight out of a Parisian bar frequented by Hemingway during the inter-war period. This collection inspired by the roaring twenties, hallmarked by an era, combines the roundness and the straightness of lines, bringing together innovation and tradition.
Rendez-vous - Light sculpture
Spectacularly cut to sculpt the light, the glasses in the Rendez- vous collection offer the understatement of symmetrical and protruding lines, structured like a cut diamond or a precious bracelet. The curves display 1920s-style aesthetics, based on the shape and fluidity of a drop of water. A reconciliation between beauty and utility, inspired by gestures and movement.
