Style Notes: An IKEA Fragrance Is Coming; Tod's Collaborates With The Blonde Salad's Chiara Ferragni
In case you missed it.
IKEA Partners With Byredo [IKEA]
Affordable-furniture giant Ikea is partnering with fellow Swede Byredo, the fragrance house founded by ex-professional basketball player Ben Gorham in Stockholm in 2006, whose scents are sold at Barneys New York and other upscale retailers. The fragrance collaboration is intended to explore "both the role of scent in the home, the carriers and the products," as well as "the scent of IKEA, if there is one, what does IKEA smell like?" Gorham's sophisticated scents start at $78 and can go up to $550 for the Night Veils collection — quite the opposite of what you think of when you think of IKEA (though Gorham did develop the beauty and scent range for fast fashion chain & Other Stories). Aded Gorham: "I feel people just don't reflect enough when it comes to scent, but smell is a very relevant part of our life and also the home. To collaborate on this idea of 'invisible design' with IKEA, getting people to think about smell is very exciting." The collection is expected to launch in 2019.
