Zinedine Zidane and his Baccarat cristal foot


Paris, Tuesday June 12th, 2018

The House of Baccarat entertained the European Leukodystrophy Association (ELA) headed by soccer star Zinédine Zidane in the presence of a hundred or so celebrities, friends of the label, journalists and children suffering from leukodystrophy to unveil « Crystalfoot », the exact replica, in crystal, of Zidane’s left foot.

« When the ELA asked us to be a part of this project, Baccarat did not hesitate one second. Two legendary names, Zidane and Baccarat, coming together for the noblest of causes, to help children suffering from leukodystrophy. People at Baccarat were incredibly excited about creating this magnificent « Crystalfoot ». From Nathalie Blaise, holder of the Chevalier des Arts et des Lettres medal, who took a physical impression of Zinédine Zidane’s magic foot, to Raymond Renault, Baccarat’s « Meilleur Ouvrier de France » who hand-sculpted the first piece, everyone at Baccarat backed the project with tireless enthusiasm. We will continue to work with Zinédine Zidane and our friends at the ELA to support their action and help them to raise all the funds we can for their cause. A hundred or so pieces will be crafted to order for everyone who is a fan of Zinedine Zidane and who wishes to support the ELA. A number of exceptional models, slightly different from the limited series, will be sold at an auction organized for the exclusive benefit of the ELA. The House of Baccarat is delighted to be a part of this, the best team in the world. Thank you all. »
Daniela Riccardi, Baccarat CEO.
