A collaboration between Lalique and McLaren isn’t exactly expected, however its exceptional partnerships such as these that give birth to masterpieces. And presenting a stellar example of the same is the much-revered Essence of Speed collection that celebrates the values of performance and excellence shared by both the brands in the form of classic yet uber-contemporary pieces.
Latest in the awe-inspiring ensemble is a clear crystal Sailfish edition. Unveiled after the Cheetah and the Falcon, the newest in the lot is crafted using the lost wax technique and is awe-inspiring, to say the least. It is touted to be the last design of the Essence of Speed collection and is one of the best Lalique pieces that we have seen so far.
Molded using satin-finished crystal, the Sailfish weighs 13.7 kgs (approx.) and is hand-crafted by master craftsmen in France. It is available in a small edition of 20 (to commemorate the 20 Formula One World Championships that McLaren has won so far) and will be delivered to the buyers along with a certificate of authenticity mentioning its number.
Showcasing passion, dedication and an undying ode to nature – the Lalique x McLaren Sailfish limited edition is a masterpiece waiting to be purchased! Have you got yours yet?
