Famed for his contribution to the development of Art Deco glassware, French artist René Lalique (1860-1945) created everything from vases and chandeliers to automobile ornaments and glass panels for Prince Asaka's 1933 mansion (now the Tokyo Metropolitan Teien Art Museum), but it was his perfume bottles that became a true phenomenon. Crafted at the request of pioneering perfumer François Coty, these boldly designed vessels transformed the industry and greatly influenced Lalique's contemporaries. This exhibition displays highlights from the collections of the Kitazawa Museum of Art in Nagano and the Kobe Fashion Museum, including a total of around 160 pieces that range from rare bottles to fin de siècle clothing and accessories.
