Sale price $49.00 Regular price
Philippe Starck's first fragrant design venture is redesign of the legendary flacon for Nina Ricci L`Air du Temps. The flacon was originally designed after World War two, in 1984, by creators Rene Lalique and Robert Ricci.On the occasion of redesign of the bottle, Philippe Starck said the following: “There is no difference in making a rocket, a hotel, a motorbike, a museum or a fragrance because the actual object is of no importance. What’s important is how it’s going to affect the person who lives in that place or with that object. So for me, a fragrance, and above all, L’Air du Temps by Nina Ricci, is a matter of vibration. It’s getting the air to vibrate in a way that suddenly moves us.”Design of L`Air du Temps symbolizes love, peace and freedom. Collaboration between Nina Ricci and Starck pushed these symbols to the first plan again. Kissing pigeons are united to create the whole flacon. Instead of redesigning the characteristic cap, the designer gives new structure and form of a kiss to the whole bottle. The flacon accentuates modern tendencies and is easier for its new owner to carry it around. It is presented as 45ml edt spray and available on the market in October 2010, with a silver cap.
