COLLABORATION LES BAINS X NAOMI GOODSIR

FROM WOOL TO HAT - LE KÉPI.

Made in France by one of the last hat manufacturers labeled ‘Living Heritage Companies (EPV)’. The company takes care of all the manufacturing steps from the Australian Merino wool bundle recognized for its exceptional qualities, to the molding of the hat including the felt cone.

For  “Képi" - inspired by a military hat from the 1900’s, Naomi Goodsir first conceived by hand, a felt shape which was then used to make a custom made hat block.

WHEN THE ICONIC TEMPLE OF PARISIAN NOCTURNAL LIFE, NOW A LUXURY BOUTIQUE-HOTEL MET AN ATYPICAL CREATOR, THE RESULT IS A ‘CHIC-ROCK HAT’ ISSUED FROM FRENCH & DOWN UNDER SAVOIR-FAIRE.

“The Képi” is available in 2 colours - loden green & midnight blue.

TZURI GUETA, Milan - Italy

The encounter between Art & Science.

By combining silicone with open work textile materials, Tzuri Gueta invented a technique of blowing silicone onto lace. Tzuri Gueta graduated from Shenkar College in Tel Aviv, Israel as a designer & textile engineer. After settling in Paris in 1996, Tzuri worked at Trend Union - an agency run by Li Edelkoort where he concentrated on textile design. His innovative approach gave rise to surprising materials that border on sculpture – materials that deceive the senses of touch & vision.

In November 2013, the National Museum of Natural History in Paris, hosted the exhibition ‘Noces Végétales’ (Plant Nuptials) by Tzuri Gueta, inside the Great Green houses in the Jardin des Plantes. Using silicone-infused lace to create works inspired by the organic world, Tzuri enhanced the luxuriant greenery of the greenhouse by entwining his silicone pieces with nature.

Tzuri Gueta collaborates with the worlds most acclaimed haute couture houses : Chanel, Givenchy, Jean-Paul Gaultier, Stéphane Rolland, Issey Miyake, etc …

COLLABORATION NOSE X NAOMI GOODSIR

 A CONTEMPORARY INTERPRETATION OF "THE PERFUMER'S ATTIRE" OF 1697.

  The 17th century engravings & prints representing the crafts & arts of their era let us contextualise the universe that existed at the time. The “Habit de Perfumeur”, an enigmatic representation well known in the closed circle of perfumers, was initially engraved by Gerrit Valck & subsequently reproduced by Nicolas de L’Armessin in 1697. In this epitomisation of the perfumer’s attire we see raw materials & essences of all sorts unveiled; orange blossom & the Queen of Hungary’s flowers, wax & leathers from Spain plus other materials such as tobacco, cedar et cetera. The perfumer’s tools are also depicted, including an incense burner disguised as a hat with scented fans carried on the shoulders. The finished products are equally presented in the image: Cyprus powder, pomades from Rome & Florence, soaps from Naples & Boulogne, pastilles & lozenges, as well as various scented waters (Eau d’Ange, Eau de Cordoue, Eau de Mille-Fleurs, Carmelite water).

With Nose, we conceived a modern-day attire for the globe travelling perfumer - in search of new components for their olfactive collection. 

3 ELEMENT ATTIRE:

Naomi created a calf leather & canvas apron with hand stitched alligator detailing. This apron can hold over 300 perfume samples. For transporting the apron a modern take of a doctors bag was designed - made from buffalo leather, canvas & alligator. To top it off, Naomi handmade/hand stitched a modern style bowler hat from loden green felt with a black vintage feather interest.
