TABLEWARE: As if men’s and couture were not enough for them, Paris fashion houses have also been busy on other fronts. Both Hermès and Christian Lacroix chose the hectic January period — when the Maison et Objet home ware show also takes place in the French capital — to reveal new tableware items. Hermès saw in the New Year and its “A Sporting Life” theme for 2013 with a vintage-style porcelain collection designed by Benoît-Pierre Emery, who has previously created carré silk scarves for the brand, and Damian O'Sullivan. Inspired by the “Chaine d’ancre” link style used on straps for certain of Hermès’ leather goods, the Rallye 24 collection’s design resembles a colorful racing track on 49 different tableware pieces. With a very different theme, Christian Lacroix Maison’s first porcelain line is a mix-and-match offer with four themes, including watercolor stripes and a parade of butterflies.
