A print for the sophisticated Lancel Daligramme bags was created by Salvador Dalí in 70s. His wife Gala was the muse to inspire him.
Every letter is symbolic…
The S of Salvador, sworn to love, the secret l’amour fou
G-Gala the muse, the mythological almost divine woman, Gala as in Gaia primordial woman, alpha female
The D within the G-Gala encloses Dalí
The trinity: spirit, body and soul
The power of the sovereign-a gift of love: a castle for Gala
The surreal sea horse-a part of the brain plays an essential role in memory
Dalí the Genius, the D of desire
Gradiva- “she who moves forward”
Today, 40 years after the creation of the original bag, Lancel, together with the Fundacio Gala-Salvador Dali, renewed the manufacturing of the Daligramme Collection and we can feel ourselves either the muses or the men of genius!
