When Guerlain meets artist JonOne
Guerlain’s legendary Bee bottles dress up with pop colors
In the hands of New York graffiti artist JonOne, for a limited time only, the Bee bottles are exploding in opaque colours. Shalimar, La Petite Robe Noire and Rose Barbare see blue, pink and orange. Under the painter’s brush the shades blend together, making each bottle a unique work of art.
The New-Yorker graffiti-painter-artist lives in Paris since 1987 and is considered today as one of the leading figure of the Graffiti culture. Firstly known for his creations made on subways or trains, his pop and colorful pieces of art are largely inspired by the hip-hop culture. If today, he paints on a more consul support, a white canvas, sometimes he returns to his first love, for example when he decorated the Thalys in 2009.
From January 4th to the end of February an exhibition showing the artist’s interventions will be on display inside the legendary Guerlain boutique at 68 avenue des Champs-Elysées, Paris 8th.
GUERLAIN x JonOne, Numbered Limited Edition Bee Bottles, 1 litre. 9000 euros.
