Aēsop announces collaboration with Ræburn
Save the date for January 2021: Aēsop is collaborating with leading sustainable fashion brand Ræburn, and the first fruits of the joint venture are due to arrive next year.
The collaboration was devised with the post-COVID consumer in mind, and you can expect to see the sustainable ethos of both brands in the collaboration.
Ræburn's Creative Director said this of the collaboration: "Aēsop’s ethics and products are second-to-none, so for RÆBURN the initial idea of partnering made perfect sense—from there we wanted to push ourselves to be sure we'd be creating something truly innovative for the market.
"Above everything we wanted to provide a truly unique, responsibly designed product which would provide the perfect companion for our naturally curious customers in the rapidly changing world of today."
La Prairie presents its latest artistic collaboration
If you're a fan of French artist Cyril Lancelin, you're in for a treat. La Prairie has collaborated with the artist for a public showcase in the heart of Paris. The aim of the collaboration is to fulfil the brand's wish to make art accessible to all.
The work, entitled '219 Spheres', is made up of 26 columns of golden steel spheres. According to Lancelin, "The sphere evokes perfection and purity. As it repeats, it keeps the same orientation. Its surface captures the light in an identical fashion, irrespective of its position. This form transcribes a communion between nature and technology."
It can be seen at the Village Royal from 24 October to 4 November. If you happen to be in Paris right now, we recommend you give it a gander!
