[sample] Mixed media artist, Meredith Wing, is best known for her work with fresh flowers so this tie-in is perfect for Heathcote & Ivory who make flowers central to their collections. These pretties are heading our way for spring (so not available yet) and they’re the perfect mood brighteners.
It’s quite a large collection so I won’t go through everything, but it’s been so nicely thought through for the gifting market with tins to keep long after the body wash and hand cream has gone.
I think you describe Wing’s illustrations as modern day Flower Fairies if anyone remembers those illustrations by Cicely Mary Barker, first published in 1923.
The fragrance across the range is a fruity floral – white flowers and cassis – light and pretty. I think everyone knows that textures from this brand are always pleasant and effective – it’s just an extra bonus that they’re so lovely to look at, too. I was talking with someone yesterday about how we’ve forgotten the joy of beauty products – maybe got a bit too serious about everything and sometimes it can just be about the sheer joy of using a thing for the absolute pleasure of it and no wider remit than that.
You can find Meredith at @moomooi on Instagram if you want to see more of her work and this range for Heathcote & Ivory will be on the shelves from early spring – you won’t miss them!
