LE VESTIAIRE DES PARFUMS – CAPELINE
Sophisticated grandeur with a mysterious edge, the CAPELINE is the refined wide-brimmed hat that sailed from catwalks and garden parties to the glamorous haunts of chic Bohemians in the 1960s. An epitome of Parisian elegance. Throughout his work, Yves Saint Laurent played on paradox of the CAPELINE: a nonchalant way of going incognito yet the most couture of accessories, lending poise and flamboyance to his creations.
CAPELINE Eau de Parfum encapsulates the enigmatic attitude of the capeline. A sophisticated yet mysterious juice, an interplay between the elegance of lily, and the sensual nonchalance of vanilla. Lily, Yves Saint Laurent’s beloved lucky-charm, owing the fact its name in French forms an anagram of the couturier’s initials. Behind the stately beauty of lily hides vanilla absolute, warm and smooth, with the merest touch of leather.
To evoke the dark matte felt of its namesake hat CAPELINE takes on an ash-grey tone;
encased in an architectural bottle silhouette, made of sheer, square-cut glass; Topped off by a textured, black cap that mirrors the “grain de poudre” grained texture of Monsieur Saint Laurent’s signature tuxedo fabric.
