We were very happy & proud to attend on May 9th, 2018, during the 71st Cannes Film Festival, the 10th Years Anniversary of ADASTRA FILMS. In 2008, Renaud Coutaudier contributed to Sébastien Aubert & David Guiraud first film budget, as Executive Producer for "Le Tonneaux des Danaïdes" short film.

"UNCONVENTIONAL" 14/17th JUNE 2016, FLORENCE
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.

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.
