Comme des Garçons Perfume Architecture
Comme des Garçons Parfum have released three limited edition perfumes for 2013. Created by Lindy Foss-Quillet, a painter and perfume connoisseur who co-ordinated the colour choices and finishing touches to the different materials used. And Frederic Couderc, a carpenter for Comme des Garçons spaces and installations. The pair explored new dimensional concepts around three Comme des Garçons classics – 2, Wonderwood and Amazingreen.
“We both love the original pebble stone shape of the perfume bottle and we didn’t want to cover it or hide it or re-design it. So we thought: Let’s make a casing in which you can see the perfume bottle but it’s trapped in some kind of scaffolding. We wanted to do something a bit spectacular and make a strong but simple visual impact. The idea was to create a contrast between a beautifully designed product like CDG 2, Wonderwood or Amazing Green and an industrial-looking architectural structure made with everyday materials like plastic, metal and bolts.” Lindy and Fred
Launching mid November in all Comme des Garçons shops, Dover Street Market London and Ginza, and in the best specialty stores all over the world. Recommended retail prices: €98, £85, $135 and ¥12,800.
