Love this beautiful design for Balenciaga Florabotanica!
"It is a beautiful and surprising incursion by design into perfumery. More than a mere bottle, it is a couture object that completes the FLORABOTANICA experience.
"The highly graphic black and white stripes echo a signature dear to Cristóbal Balenciaga and the visions of extremely contemporary cuts of which Nicolas Ghesquière is fond in his designs.
The oversized tube with bold lines plunges into the floral perfume like a laboratory test tube looking to capture the secret essence of flowers. To create a sensory paradox between the rigour of experimentation and the poetry of the spirit of plants."
“ We really put ourselves in the shoes of biologists discovering enigmatic plants whose secret we wanted to uncover. And take samples of the flowers for our research. We created a bottle that would express the whole scientific technique, clean lines and play on mirrors like those slides you find in laboratories. ” Nicolas Ghesquière
