The magic of Lalique

Lalique is by far my biggest inspiration when I'm working on my designs. He was very unique indeed.
However, to me the entire genre was very interesting - the "Fleur du mal" (the orchid, symbolizing the female genitalia, which drove men mad) is a good example of what went on.
There was a un-frightenness of depicting beauty and what we percieve as non-aestetic-ness. Very bold in my oppinion and not to be sniffed at!
