Fragrance:As designers deepen their fascination with all things architectural, from Raf Simon's structural dresses for Jil Sander to the futuristic, constructed 'pod' shoes that we saw at Balenciaga, so too goes the modern face.
The shapes and steely colours in this collection are an expression of the trend, an ode to the strength of a woman, rendered with true architectural precision. The geometry of eyes in graphic, graphite tones of grey with the beguilijng blue scheen of an elegant grid of sky-reflecting windows on a stunning concrete skyscraper. Trend F/W '09 is a living tower of power! Lips are dark or sseductively nude. The fragrance? Asphalt Flower, a limited-life scent as bold and urbane as the modern metropolis.
-Asphalt Flower ($20 US/ $24 CDN)- glossy violet and iris petals cast an ebonized sheen over dark clouds of vanilla and patchouli. Like a shimmering lace veil this scent caresses and envelops of glamour and drama.
