The new collection from acclaimed Spanish designer Jaime Hayon for Lladró is an exciting and welcome release.
Whilst in keeping with Lladró`s signature delicacy, a touch of humour and cute has been added. The combination is a winning formula, which looks set to be hugely popular.
The Fantasy Collection consists of 01: Lover`s Garden, Scene 02: Raining Hearts and Toy.
The new Lladro collection adds a dreamlike element to Lladró`s signature delicacy, capturing special moments from magical worlds. Each individual piece reveals a surreal and fantastic scene, from heady, romantic love through to child like play.
Lover`s Garden – £1,700. This Limited Edition piece is, for me, simply delightful. The character and hearts are reminiscent of Doug Hyde`s Smile collection. This is a big box ticked as far as I am concerned.
The character of The Lover plucks a heart from his garden, which instantly turns to the brightest red from Lladró`s colour palette as a symbol of passionate love. The scene is captured in a glass dome and appears as if frozen in time.
Raining Hearts – £765. This shows an intimate group of toys enclosed within a glass dome, with each monochrome element featuring beautifully hand painted hearts.
Jaime Hayon`s toy theme has been a signature element of his work over the years and has been incorporated within his collection for Lladró and can be seen within this piece. This is also a limited edition piece.
Toy – £135. Toy is Jaime Hayon`s signature toy that pops up throughout The Fantasy Collection. This piece has been transformed into an originally functional piece as a decorative chopstick rest.
This New Lladro edition has a guilt free sentiment that I like very much.
