IF you are a fan of the Colonia Artist Edition line, Acqua di Parma and Clym Evernden have just unveiled an extended Christmas edition with a new festive design. The same little bird, star of the original arty tale, is now dressed in silver, along with the trees, ornaments, snowflakes, and mistletoe are seen throughout the entire collection.
The holiday edition also introduced new artwork by the award-winning illustrator, including the new festive carols that run across the packaging from one joyous scene to another, in a natural rhythm that adds a cheerful touch to the special collection. This encapsulates the harmony and magic of the festivities with elegance and style. That’s not all. To celebrate the year-end festivities, Acqua di Parma also released an extended range of products including perfumed soaps and hand products, the iconic Colonia candle in a glass, a new room fragrance and the refreshing scented drawer liners.
The partnership was long due, according to Acqua Di Parma CEO Laura Burde. In an interview with Esquire UK, Burde quipped: “We’ve collaborated with artists in the past, but we wanted something new and interesting to make Colonia feel very modern. I’ve been a fan of Clym’s for a long time, so we met, and we talked, and it felt right. There was chemistry!”
Evernden’s simple yet sophisticated style strikes a deep affinity with the brand. The Colonia Artist Edition project as interpreted by the former ballet dancer and model fully embodies the values of Acqua di Parma. Evernden’s exquisite work was exclusively created by hand, so it’s characterised by small imperfections that make each totally unique and all the more perfect.
For over a century, Acqua di Parma has always expressed a passion for craftsmanship and for items created with patience and time. These, in their minute imperfections, convey an honest vitality.
There are a total of four holiday gift sets, Colonie, Ingredient Collection, Blu Mediterraneo, and Le Nobili (women’s range). Each of these gift sets comes in a hat box in unmistakable Parma yellow and decorated with a silver motif designed by Evernden. The design encapsulates the sophisticated lightness of Italian style.
