Update 4/15/16: Grace Coddington will be signing bottles of her new perfume at Dover Street Market NY, April 20, 5-7 pm — her birthday.
Grace Coddington has unveiled her first creative endeavor since sending the fashion world into a tizzy when it was announced her title at Vogue, where she’s worked for 28 years, was changing from creative director to creative editor-at-large — a fragrance collaboration with Comme des Garçons.
Created by CdG Parfum’s creative director, Christian Astuguevieille, Coddington’s longtime love of roses served as the inspiration. She says rose water was the first scent she ever wore. However, one look at the cat-shaped bottle, designed by Fabien Baron, and one can see the other inspiration, her longtime fascination with cats. She is and has always been an unapologetic cat lady.
Grace, $110 (50 ml) – $145 (100 ml) at Dover Street Market and GraceCoddington.com
