We were super excited to be working with Caudalie recently on a lovely beauty breakfast for the launch of their latest amazing Premier Cru Serum!
Held at the fab Spring Restaurant at Somerset House, it was a wonderfully creative brief to be involved with.
Caudalie's heritage goes back to the vineyards in Bordeaux, where the products were first made. Using black grapes and grape vines, this product cleverly uses the parts of the grape not needed for wine so the whole plant is used and none is wasted. We brought this out in the launch, dressing the space with bunches of black grapes, vine roots and bagfuls of wine corks.
Keeping with the heritage of the brand, we created these beautiful letters spelling C A U D A L I E in corks. Dressed with more grapes, white hydrangea and even more corks, of course! In total, we used 2000! That's a lot of wine bottles!
And of course no event is complete without an entrance arch of sorts. This one was to be simple, reflecting the French vineyards where the product is made. Plinths with scientific conical flasks, test tubes and beakers filled with single stems of white flowers finished the event dressing and highlighted the science behind the skincare in laboratory style!
