Anyone who was in Paris in March for the Autumn Winter 2016 season heard about the unfortunate circumstances where we were unable to enjoy the latest Sarah Tari collection. Well, fortunately this season we did get to see what she got up to and we were not disappointed! We had the opportunity to talk to Sarah about her previous work so we were happy to see the direction of her latest collection.
Her latest collection is bit more industrial than her previous work. Where her last collections seem to have been inspired by the nature you rarely see in the big cities, this collection is more straight lines and urban materials. In addition to the pure silver she has used to great effect in the past, she has added pieces made from concrete and added some raw diamonds in the mix. Each piece is in itself a juxtaposition, with clean, geometric shapes mixed with raw, earthy edges.
This season, Sarah Tari also collaborated on the launch of a new line of scents, Nasu. The unisex scents come in stunning, hand crafted bottles with Sarah adding the silver logo to each bottle. These perfumes were meant to come as a set with each one having it's own identity.
The name Nasu comes from a Japanese poem about a Buddhist priest and the spirit living in a stone. Each bottle comes with a black diamond in it, a nod to the stone spirit. There are 5 scents: Koh-I-Noor with the copper cap, with top notes of coriander, coconut and apricot, Black Orlov with the black cap with top notes of mandarins, bergamot and lemon, Blue Hope with the the golden cap has top notes of pink pepper and red berries, Golden Jubilee with the bronze cap has top notes of citrus fruits like mandarin, orange and lemon, then there is Cora Sun Drop with the grey cap having an interesting mix of top notes such as grapefruit, peppermint, and mandarin.
Here, you can read the poem on which Nasu Perfumes was based.
