Shades of Kolam

Issey Miyake presents Shades of Kolam, two Eaux de Toilette born from an extraordinary journey: an unprecedented collaboration between the perfumer Marie Salamander, and the artistic duo, Twice Studio. These three creatives came together in India, right in the heart of the Tamil Nadu state in the city of Chennai. Together, they had an idea: to discover the art of Kolam and to draw inspiration from it to reinterpret the iconic scents, L’Eau d’Issey and L’Eau d’Issey pour Homme.

Why choose Kolam? Kolam is a singular art form, that has been passed down for centuries from mother to daughter, generation upon generation. It is a technique which combines artistic expression and mathematical intuition as well as ancestral sprinkling techniques. These geometric patterns, drawn by Indian women using rice powder and colored pigments, form captivating arabesques, which interlock in concentric circles to create mandalas.

To bring life to the bottles for this special edition, the designers started from scratch by designing the Kolam-inspired lettering. For L’Eau d’Issey, they chose the famous Indian rose: its magnetic hue suffuses the bottle and shines from the cap.

This Eau de Toilette opens with essence of grapefruit and a floral note of freesia with a hint of cardamom. Sambac jasmine, an almost narcotic Indian jasmine, lies at the heart of the scent and envelops the senses. Finally, cedar, tinged with ambroxan, adds an ultra-modern, almost mineral, dimension to the scent.
