The French luxury parfumerie Guerlain has found inspiration in American street art as it joins American street artist JonOne, to launch a special edition, one-liter perfume bottle, which will go on sale on January 4, 2016. The funky, bee-patterned bottles are a reinterpretation of the bee-inspired bottles that was designed by Pierre-François-Pascal Guerlain in 1853, as part of a special order for the marriage of Eugénie de Montijo and Napoleon III.
JonOne has added his colorful imagination to the bottle resulting in three different shades: blue for “Shalimar Parfum”, pink for “La Petite Robe Noire Parfum” and orange for “Rose Barbare, Eau de Parfum”. The bottles were reworked and signed by the artist, making them truly unique. There will be a classic Guerlain touch in the form of a satin ribbon which sits on the neck of the bottle.
As part of the official launch Guerlain will hold an exhibition of JonOne’s work at their store on the Champs-Elysées in Paris from January 4 to February 28, 2016. 34 units of Shalimar, 32 units of La Petite Robe Noire and Rose Barbare will be uniquely numbered and signed and retailed at €9000 ($9,929).
