A Martini glass, jug and stirrer are among Jasper Conran’s latest designs for glassware manufacturer Stuart Crystal, which go into department stores and independent retail outlets from next month. Created with home entertaining in mind, the range – called Bar – is intended to tap into a revivalist vogue for the cocktail hour. The glasses have strong linear style and symmetry with subtle decoration intended to make more of the reflective qualities of glass. There are products specific to various ‘drinking occasions’, including a whiskey tumbler and champagne flute, as well as wine, long drink and shot glasses. Prices start at £40 for two whisky glasses.
