Spotted in The Green Gallery: a lavish celebration of the anemone. This delicate beauty has long been a source of inspiration for artists, photographers and product developers. We’ve listed our three favourite anemone celebrations for you.
Bubbles with your anemone
What could be more chic than toasting the beautiful things in life with a glass of champagne?
Perrier Jouët Anemone
It’s even better with a bottle decorated with anemones, like the Perrier-Jouët bottle.
Art nouveau emerged at the start of the 20th century. It was about transferring the beauty and poetry of nature to products that are used in daily life and this philosophy was picked up by the makers of Perrier-Jouët.
Artist and glassmaker Emile Gallé was one of the Art Nouveau’s pioneers. In 1902, he designed the iconic anemone trimmed with gold which was placed on the bottle of the first Perrier-Jouët Belle Epoque vintage in 1964.
For Lela Rose’s 2015 autumn collection, Paper artist Daniel Sean Murphy created life-sized anemones to match the collection, which was inspired by the flower. It’s not the first time that he has sought inspiration from nature for his clients. He had previously produced a wall full of paper flowers for Mario Testino.
Pantone identifies colour trends every year. In 2016 they announced two main colours of the year (Rose Quartz & Serenity) and introduced the colour Pantone Anemone.
