Aesop Gift Kits10/10/2012
Every year, Aesop releases much-anticipated seasonal gift kits, their designs linked by a theme of significance to the innovative and philosophically inclined company. This year’s kits focus on birds; each is named for a specific aspect of avian life – Flight, Hover, Perch, Preen, Quill, Soar – and each profiles an extinct or endangered species.
For Aesop, the significance of birds lies in what they symbolise: freedom from constraints of all kinds, including rigid ideas of beauty; admirable idiosyncrasy; and an ingenuous ease of being. Further, the fragility of many species and habitats is a prescient reminder of the constancy of change.
Presented in elegant, practical, grey cases which feature striking images of the selected birds, these beautifully convened offerings make incomparable gifts. Contents vary from a trio of gentlemen’s essentials for post-workout grooming to a comprehensive hair care ensemble, to a sumptuous quartet of full-sized products from Aesop’s Parsley Seed anti-oxidant skin care range.
The six gift kits are available at all Aesop signature stores and counters in fine department stores across the globe, and online at www.aesop.com.
