Kiki from Kiki Smith

Kiki from Kiki Smith

Kiki is the new fragrance from contemporary artist Kiki Smith, designed in collaboration with the award-winning French fragrance designer, Christophe Laudamiel. Kiki is a study of balance and contrast and is unabashedly green and fresh while deeply and unexpectedly, lush, warm and dynamic. The fragrance evokes Kiki’s most significant olfactory memories: musks, boxwood, patchouli and sandalwood next to fresh, ripe foliage and fig leaf notes. The uniquely soothing, enveloping warmth and herbaceousness of blue chamomile and the bright and summery smell of narcisse create an incandescent, satisfying and fearless scent that is diffusive and illuminating.


Your guess is as good as mine as to what this means. Zaha Hadid is designing shoes for Lacoste and I really want that Thomas Demand polo. So it seems as if I've found myself at some crossroad. As of this moment I don't know if the wearable magazine will be available at Macy's but we're having a big meeting Wednesday so maybe I'll know after that. But wouldn't Warhol be thrilled? Too bad he's dead.

If you would like to discuss the aesthetic implications of this I'm in residence at the Macy's Lacoste on 34th Street in New York, 2nd Floor Men's Store:
