The new destination at Palladium Mumbai promises to bring the newest trends in sculptures, lighting, jewellery and home decor, figurines, functional and decorative works handcrafted in Spain
March 4, 2020: Lladró, the renowned fine porcelain brand, has opened a new boutique at Palladium Mall in Mumbai. A 100sq ft. store on the ground floor now houses a complete cross-selection of Lladró’s varied catalogue of porcelain offerings, including lighting, sculptures, jewellery, home décor and fragrances.
The historic art porcelain brand, a flagship for luxury in Spain, has strategically relocated one of the seven boutiques that it has in India from a high street store to Palladium Mall, Mumbai. The opening of the store is part of the roll-out of a new business approach undertaken by the brand. This new phase responds to the strategic need for expansion and improvement of Lladró’s boutiques around the world’s most economically powerful cities.
Luxury and exclusiveness, coupled with contemporary art knowledge, design, cultural traditions and universal feelings, serve as inspiration for the brand’s creative universe, allowing customers to be able to enjoy and select pieces whilst discovering the intricacies in porcelain world. Renowned architect Héctor Ruíz Velázquez has again collaborated with the brand and has developed a new interior concept that captures the perfect balance between the historical origins of the brand and the avant-garde designs Lladró is now known for.
The materials used inside the store takes us back to the components of porcelain: kaolin, feldspar and quartz, alongside the white Calacatta marble floor with its grey veins, reflected in the cement texture of the walls, both contrasting with the delicate art pieces on display.
Lladró’s team of sculptors, technicians, decorators and ornamental artists have created a slew of new collections which are on offer at the store. The new ‘Guest by Ricardo Cavolo Spain’s most internationally famous illustration artist Ricardo Cavolo, has two new versions of The Guest, covering the pieces with his breathtaking imagery based on legends, fantasy nature and tattooed beings.
Lladró insects are the first three in a new collection of incredible insects: two kinds of beetles, the Rhinoceros and the Hercules, and a dragonfly. These are innovative creations in porcelain and metal, decorated with pearl lustre, exploring the fascinating world of insects. Ice Cream candles and diffusers are original pieces with striking designs inspired by the wavy rhythms of smooth creamy ice cream, made in white matte porcelain and decorated with a metal cover.
The brand also presents Dog & Candy Collection, including French Bulldog & Macarons,, a Bulldog with Lollipop in white porcelain, and a Chihuahua with Marshmallows. These unique, playful animal pieces complement the sweets that contribute a colourful and surprising contrast. A Jack Russel with licorice combines matte porcelain and shine for a perfect piece for animal and pet lovers.
