M. MICALLEF Pure Extreme Marianne Venderbosch EDP 10ml
A limited edition for an artistic surging
Following the worldwide success of the 2018 capsule collection launched with Russian pop art painter Alex Doll, Maison Micallef unveiled a new limited edition collection, thanks to a collaboration with Dutch visual artist Marianne Venderbosch. Hand painted by Marianne Venderbosch and Martine Micallef, these precious bottles are all unique pieces. The decorations on the boxes and both 100 ml & 10 ml bottles are executed with liquid Gold in association with bright pink, yellow and green colors. The result ? Solar creations, suffused with poetry. This intensely feminine universe is home to the Pure Extrême fragrance, a fresh and luminous eau de parfum elaborated around the crystalline rose- jasmine / pink / white musk accord. A fragrance of great purity.
A matter of encounter
Martine and Marianne met in April 2018 at the "World Art Dubai". "Martine Micallef came to me and shared her appreciation for my work, especially for one of my pieces," confides Marianne. "She then told me her wish to collaborate with me. I was so happy ... "The project quickly became a reality when Marianne came to Grasse, in July 2018, in order to discover behind the scenes at Maison Micallef and to start the art work on a bottle. In unison, the works of Marianne Venderbosch and the world of Maison Micallef vibrate in a strong and unprecedented harmony.
Abstract combinations of elegant lines with a powerful yet delicate edge, the paintings on the 100 ml bottles evoke the clear fragrance of Pure Extrême. The design chosen by Martine Micallef for the 10ml bottles is inspired by Marianne Venderbosch’s "Spring" – an abstract, bright and colorful creation. "I created a series of 4 bottles that, once assembled, recompose the original work. The result ? Bottles leading- as often with Maison Micallef craft – to the level of genuine art pieces. These pure objects of desire unite art, creation, audacity and traditional know-how.
