NUDESTIX continues to impress me, and apart from the fact that it’s a Canadian brand (#CanadianPride 馃嚚馃嚘), I’ve also had the pleasure of meeting and chatting with the 2 brilliant sisters & founders, Taylor & Ally Frankel.

Givenchy 路 Couture Edition 2018

 

You can definitely say that Givenchy knows how to create some of the beauty world’s most visually stunning packaging and to that end, I direct you to Exhibit A: the Couture Edition聽duo for Spring/Summer 2018. And if the beautifully rendered floral pattern doesn’t grab you, then what’s on the inside more surely will … although personally, I love how both design & function have come together here in such perfect harmony.
