To mark the 180th anniversary of the Harcourt glass, Baccarat invited 11 fashion designers to reinterpret the icon with 6 facets and a hexagonal foot.
Under the curatorship of Laurence Benaïm, 11 “ingenuous storytellers” revisit the Harcourt glass and swerve it towards the colors of their world. Between upcycling and connectivity, craftsmanship and technology, the function becomes fiction. Imane Ayissi, Benjamin Benmoyal, Tom Van der Borght, Clara Daguin, Honey Fucking Dijon, Kévin Germanier, Mira Mikati, Charles de Vilmorin, Victor Weinsanto, Yoshiki and Jarel Zhang sign the Harcourt Show by.
During Paris Spring-Summer 2022 Fashion Week, these exceptional pieces will be exhibited at the Maison Baccarat, the original setting of the famous “Bal des Matières” of 1928, from September 30, to November 30, 2021.
“I wanted to honor the colors and the know-how” assures Mira Mikati, impressed by all the expressions of Baccarat during her visit to the museum in Paris, in June 2021.
This is how she dressed the glass Harcourt for a trip around the most beautiful and happy holidays in the world.
“Make way for joy, laughter and dance”. Hand-knitted outfits evoke childhood fancy dress parties in technicolor mode.
To find in chaos the nature of excitement, of enchantment: this is the passion of the Lebanese designer based in London, where she attended the Central Saint Martins School and the Parsons School of Design. Mira Mikati launched her brand in 2015, imposing a colorful and pop vision of the world through her designs.
