An exquisite pleasure had invaded my senses, something isolated, detached, with no suggestion of its origin. And at once the vicissitudes of life had become indifferent to me, its disaster innocuous, its brevity illusory – this new sensation having had the effect, which love has, of filling me with a precious essence; or rather this essence was not in me, it was me. I had ceased now to feel mediocre, contingent, mortal. - Byung-Chul Han
We created a special edition gift box that was conceptualized and designed for the launch of Vestiaire Collective’s arrival in the US. The unique box was a fully realized concept in collaboration with our close friends Barnabé Fillion, Perla Valtierra and Imprimerie du Marais.
The concept was to weave together various forms, senses and details into one gift that spoke to the values of Vestiaire Collective, in a package that felt multi-layered, yet unified. Ultimately the result was the design of a beautifully crafted box that held a handcrafted ceramic piece doused in a unique perfume by Barnabé. Small cards evokes senses of emotions and petites pensées and attention to details that the brand emphasizes.
The present was gifted to key figures in the industry of Cinema, Art, Music, Architecture and Fashion, to inspire them with that French flair. The various tools in the gift evoke various senses to create an initial impression of the brand that lingers, viscerally, with the person.
