Christmas is a great time for beauty lovers. The stores are flush with beautiful limited edition products and exquisite exclusive ranges, wrapped in sumptuous packaging, threatening to break the bank of many an innocent shopper.
Top of our Christmas list is the By the Sea collection from Comme des Garçons who have collaborated with Sandra Korn for this limited edition release. The German artist has hand painted the bottles of the brand's three most popular perfumes: Amazing Green, CDG2 and Wonderwood. Inspired by her life in Hossegor in South West France, where she now resides, her abstract illustrations reflect her interest in graphic design and the natural sciences. The beautiful aquamarine sea print, painterly monochrome and gold design and moody dappled floral decorated bottle will transport you to the sunny shores of France and will dispel any winter blues. Launching this week the collection will make a great Christmas gift or even a little treat for yourself.
By the Sea will be available in all Comme des Garçons shops and Dover Street Market this week.
