It was when he first met Gala, in 1929, in Cadaquès, that Salvador Dalí recognised in her the woman he “had dreamed of and painted before he even met her”, his muse and grand amour.

At the end of the 60’s, he wrote a language for her, a secret love alphabet only understood by the two of them. He named it Dalígramas.
Like Dalí, the French maroquinier Lancel has been inspired by Gala, in 1970, to create a collection of bags whose leather dresses up with the letter symbols and whose handles take the form of a bicycle’s chain (credit donna), true symbol of the link between the two lovers.
Today, the brand re-edits the collection Dalígramme and associates with the Gala-Salvador Dalí Foundation to pay a tribute to this great love.

Take a peek at the Gallerie des Galleries, in Paris, until the 20th of September for a unique retrospective: L’art, l’amour, la mode.
