Paul Smith collaborates with Lladró

Paul Smith collaborates with Lladró

Last I knew of Lladró they were beautiful – if a little twee – classic porcelain figurines which decorated the living rooms of mums everywhere in the 80’s and 90’s.

However now the Valencia-based company are collaborating with cutting-edge artists to give a contemporary, irreverent twist to the classic porcelain collectibles, presumably with the aim of appealing to a younger market.

The most recent collaboration sees Paul Smith working closely with Lladró’s artisans to produce mischievous confetti and covered masked animals. Like the rest of the pieces in the collection, the new figurines come in two sizes: large (52cm tall) in a limited edition of 250 and small (30cm) in a numbered edition. Besides going on sale in Lladró’s and Paul Smith’s own shops and their online stores, the new The Guest by Paul Smith figurines will also be available in a select network of galleries and concept stores.
