The Panda Collection
RUSTAN’S and Lalique celebrated the launch of The Panda Collection by Han Meilin and The Aquatique 2 Collection at Rustan’s Makati, which was graced by Daniel Ong, Lalique Regional Director for SEA and Aseana. After years of development and all that attends such a period of waiting, Han Meilin’s crystal pandas saw the light of day thanks to the savoir-faire of Lalique’s master craftsmen. Yuan-Yuan and Meng-Meng, the pandas created in the Lalique crystal works, a sitting male and a supine female, were baptized in honor of Yuan-Meng, the first panda to be born in France, at Beauval Zoo in 2017. The two new-borns are products of Han Meilin’s fertile imagination. Betraying a certain innocence, the Chinese artist marvels at the world through the eyes of a child.
