Fauna and flora figure prominently in Guo Pei’s designs and reflect the influence of nature in the designer’s work. For her 2015 collection, Garden of Soul, the ensembles were inspired by a historical Chinese-Buddhist saying, “a flower contains the world, one leaf contains enlightenment,” capturing how the spirit of nature and universal oneness can be found in small everyday details. This exclusive porcelain coaster features details from the Garden of Soul collection and was created in celebration of the exhibition Guo Pei: Couture Fantasy at the Legion of Honor museum in San Francisco. The perfect compliment for your favorite beverage, the coaster features a gold filet for a luxurious detail. Hand washing is recommended. Measures 4.25 in. in diameter.
The exhibition Guo Pei: Couture Fantasy at San Francisco’s Legion of Honor focuses on the extraordinary designs of Guo Pei—hailed as China’s first couturier. Through exquisite craftsmanship, lavish embroidery, and unconventional dressmaking techniques, Guo Pei creates a fantasy that fuses the influences of China’s imperial past and export art, European architecture, international theater, and the botanical world.
