220 g hand crafted scented candle

 

Inspiration for the candles "PORT/FOLIO" collection focuses on the potential and the artistic accomplishments of women. And who better to know about that than a model who just also happens to be an artist.

Creativity which makes the moment of certainty the beauty standard, and turns rush into eternity. The body becomes canvas, but its life is a story which requires a separate tale about noise, loneliness, chaos, and philosophy. These are the moments which unite home with a podium from a fashion capital, and inner calm with the role of a new day. From the studio to the airport, from street culture to centuries-old couture traditions. These are extraordinary animalistic civet and castoreum, intriguing leather  with suppressed orris root, beeswax and sensitive chamomile.

For inspiration we decided to choose New York City. The city between steel, parks and light. Erect with big dreams, bold ambitions and heroic achievements. When coming from Europe there is a refreshing air of openness in New York, a social culture witch has given us the chance to engage in the lives of people from completely different backgrounds and generations. New York remains the world’s most sophisticated laboratory of modern life, subcultures, religions, shapes and lines.

The brutal aesthetics hidden within the familiar of everyday life, the globalised sameness of today metropolises, and the way these mega-cities are meticulously planned are central theme of Big City Life. 

City without name and straight lines, anonymous people on the move through the constructions erupted out of a seemingly infinite mix of glass, steel and concrete. City life, where sometimes You forget Yourself. Big City Life, where I sometimes forget myself.

Promise not to stare
Too long (This is not America)
For this is not the miracle" - David Bowie
