The French luxury perfume and cosmetics house has joined forces with a famous American street artist for three limited edition perfume bottles. Each one is a reinterpretation of the iconic bee-patterned bottle, designed by Pierre-François-Pascal Guerlain in 1853 as part of a special order for the marriage of Eugénie de Montijo and Napoleon III.
The one liter bottle was entrusted to JonOne as a blank canvas, to allow him to express himself freely with his “colored language.” The result is an explosion of colors in three different shades: blue for “Shalimar, Extract”, pink for “La Petite Robe Noire, Extract” and orange for “Rose Barbare, Eau de Parfum”.
The Guerlain x JonOne collection will go on sale on January 4. Each “bee bottle” will be numbered and signed: 34 units for “Shalimar” and 32 units for “La Petite Robe Noire” and “Rose Barbare”. Price: €9,000 (9,854).
As part of this exclusive partnership, Guerlain will hold an exhibition of JonOne’s work in its legendary store on the Champs-Elysées in Paris from January 4 to February 28, 2016.
