Acqua di Parma’s Designer EditionThe adage “what’s old is new again” certainly rings true for Acqua di Parma’s Designer Edition to a nearly century old scent by designing a limited edition bottle and packaging that is an amalgamation of art deco, ancient art and post modernist design. Scacchetti worked for a number of years in Murano, long heralded as Italy’s glassmaking capital. It’s no surprise that he took into account the way light and images pass through the glass. He draws the owner to rotate the bottle a full 360 degrees to view the entire design. While Scacchetti stayed true to the iconic silhouette of the bottle, he added black graphic forms to contrast the yellow tones in the glass and the fragrance itself. It may be too soon to see if the MoMA will add this work of art to their permanent collection. However fragrance lovers and design aficionados are sure to hold on to this refillable bottle. The 180ml eau de cologne spray, $156, comes in striking signature yellow hatbox with a refill accessory.
