Whether you realize it or not, you know Dutch artist duo Inez van Lamsweerde and Vinoodh Matadin. The pair have been together for nearly 28 years (unbelievable) and they have captured some of the most prestigious projects and campaigns in modern fashion history- Valentino, Miu Miu, Dior, YSL Balmain and a whole lot of Vogue. Anyone see the new Barneys catalog with Lou Dillon? It was awesome. It was them.
Like hollywood celebrities who expand their personal brands with product lines, Inez and Vinoodh have recently released a scent with one of my favorite fragrance houses, Byredro. 1996 was inspired by a photograph of a young girl entitled ‘Kirsten 1996.’ Notes: fresh juniper, creamy orris and soft violet, patchouli, black amber and vanilla.
