For its 2015 collection, Christian Lacroix Maison has developed a range of tableware entitled Caribe with esteemed Portuguese porcelain producers Vista Alegre

Inspiration for the bright and exuberant range was found in the tropical settings of the Caribbean and beyond. Luscious ferns, dragonflies and brightly coloured feathers and flowers are all set against a pristine, white background.

The designers paid particular interest to the intricate, hand-embroidered petticoat detailing of the ladies from Salvador da Bahia. Each piece in the collection is off-set with gold and platinum outlines, a signature trademark of Christian Lacroix Maison.

Vista Alegre has been crafting porcelain since 1824 and was the first industrial unit to produce the product in Portugal. They work with a range of both local and international designers to create a selection of high-end pieces.
