Being the first week of Spring, we’re loving looking at botanical prettiness and came across this beautiful thing: the Belle Epoque Florale Edition by Japanese artist Makoto Azuma, recently unveiled in Tokyo by Perrier-Jouët.

The artist created the Belle Epoque Florale Edition as a tribute to Emile Gallé’s iconic Art Nouveau design. The floral concept features a suspended floral flourish decorated with white Japanese anemones.

Emile Gallé chose white Japanese anemones for the original design in 1902. He had a great passion for botany and deeply admired Japanese art, which often draws its inspiration from nature.

‘I wanted to make something extraordinary, taking inspiration from the sensation of champagne inside the mouth, and the delicate movement of the ivy and leaves with a special attention and tribute given to Emile Gallé’s anemones,’ said Makoto.
