Christmas may seem like forever away but it’s less than 100 days now! Plus we can’t keep the Aveda x 3.1 Philip Lim Holiday Collection to ourselves, because it’s certainly going on our list.
With the power and awe of nature in full bloom, this partnership celebrates two like-minded brands bringing the botanical world of beauty to life through special-edition hair accessories and gift packaging created with sustainability at heart. The Collection reflects the transformative and purposeful spirit of giving, togetherness, and the inspiring magic of nature as the pair continue their synergistic missions of caring for the world.
“Developing this collection felt like a natural evolution of our relationship with Aveda. It is through our shared values to protect and care for the planet, that we can bring natural beauty and joy to the simple rituals in life. Mother nature thrives when given the space to move through her natural cycles; we wanted to harness that spirit into thoughtful gifting for a loved one to flourish and thrive,” added Phillip Lim, Creative Director and Co-Founder of 3.1 Phillip Lim.
The artwork featured within the collection was designed in collaboration with botanical artist, Sophie Parker, whose hand-painted works use fresh-cut botanicals as a natural canvas. Her creative approach is tuned to use the organic form of each leaf, letting the plant itself guide her brushstrokes and color choices. This ephemeral muse-as- medium holds a special preciousness during its brief existence as the artwork, which eventually naturally decomposes and returns to the soil itself. Working closely with Phillip Lim on the artwork for this collection, Parker’s custom paintings were digitally transformed to create the beautiful prints found on the special-edition hair accessories and packaging.
