Hussein Chalayan to launch first fragrance with Comme des Garçons
Saturday 04 June 2011
The London-based fashion designer will release his first signature scent, backed by the vanguard Japanese label.
Inspired by his fall 2007 collection that was called Airborne, the fragrance will carry the same name, meant to retrace Chalayan's journey from his native Cyprus to the UK.
Accordingly, Airborne features a variety of Mediterranean notes including neroli, lemon, bergamot, lentiscus, juniper berry, and cedarwood. Incense and musk add to the woody feeling of the unisex perfume, making it a perfect fit for CDG's fragrance range, which also includes Wonderwood and Standard by Comme des Garçons.
Chalayan previously released a fragrance as part of the Curated by Colette collection back in 2005, but Airborne marks the designer's first very own scent. It will debut July 21 at London's Dover Street Market for $95.
