Lancel's inspired handbags by Salvador Dali

French fashion house Lancel is preparing to launch a new handbag collection inspired by Spanish surreal artist Salvador Dali.
Collection Daligramme will feature 20 handbag styles, 13 made from jacquard and seven crafted from luxury leather, and other small leather goods and accessories. The range features bags inspired by Dali’s secret “love alphabet” and bearing cute names like DaliDay and DaliCious. Amongst them are two updated versions of the original Dali handbag Lancer created in 1970. The bicycle chain handles we saw on the originals have been replaced by more practical leather ones but the new handbags, called DaliDol, still retail their slim, rectangular shapes.
Lancel will celebrate the launch of its new accessories range with a photography exhibition at its Paris flagship outlet at department store chain Galeries Lafayette. The display which will run from September 1 to 20, will feature never-before-seen candid shots of the artist and his wife Gala. Lancel has worked with the Gala-Salvador Dali Foundation to stage the retrospective art exhibition.

The art and fashion worlds have always made great bedfellows, but it’s particularly exciting to see Lancel taking inspiration from one of the world’s most enduring creative minds. It remains to be seen whether the new Collection Daligramme will be as weird and wonderful as anything Dali himself made!
