La Petite Robe Noire
"Crystal and bullion threads"
"More than a century after its creation, Guerlain celebrates its iconic "inverted heart" bottle with a special black crystal edition by Baccarat House. And for the ultimate finishing touch, Guerlain is showcasing the remarkable craft of bullion thread. The art of embroidering fine metal spirals on felt goes back to the 17th century and takes over ten years to master, it was the preserve of Haute Couture universe. The La Petite Robe Noire bottle has received a fairy-tale makeover of delicate pink and silver bullion threads flowers, all hand embroidered. The extraordinary talent of Macon&Lesquoy has used the traditional technique in its purest form to create a style that is resolutely contemporary.
Only 40 numbered pieces are available worldwide."
An ultimate concentration for an exceptional bottle. In its Extract form, La Petite Robe Noire is more charming than ever. Black tea, patchouli and black cherry strut by, audaciously escorted by a bold Guerlinade. This intensified drydown enhances the richness of iris, the velvety nature of vanilla and the addictive indulgence of tonka bean with its almond accents.
Since 2009, Macon & Lesquoy has used traditional technique in its purest form to create broaches and other pieces of jewellery with a resolutely contemporary style. Boasting the same audacity, spirit and elegance as La Petite Robe Noire, Macon & Lesquoy was the obvious choice for this partnership.
