When Dalì met Gala

Dalì must be one of my favorite artists of all time!

In the summer of 1929, the infamous spanish surrealist met and fell in love with a daring, russian beauty, Gala. Their love for each other was all consuming.

He employed extensive symbolyim in his work and was fascinated with the LV monogram that much so, that he created his own, personal script  called the Daligram where he includes also his SD initials and the initial of his beloved wife and muse Gala. It was the language of love and belonged only to the two of them

This was in 1960s and he cerated it from a LV leather case, which you can see here, if you take a closer look....

This was his own interpretation of monograms and especially those of the house LV.

Lancel launched now their new collection in memory of this great artist and the great love he felt for his Gala for the second time.

In the 1970, inspired by the love affair of Dalì and Gala, Lancel releases a collector's bag detailed with the motifs of Dalì's alphabet.

Today the collection consists of 20 bags.
