Penhaligon’s

I don’t know much about Penhaligon’s and firstly know it from the post in http://www.thedieline.com on its Christmas gift collection. Well, I ‘d say I was sudden in love with this brand. The boxes are so beautiful and have a good combination of traditional and modern look.

This intrigue design done by http://www.jkrglobal.com which I think they did a wonderful job blended the old vintage style element with the very bright color and created the result that is so charming; fresh, festive and yet very elegant.

Wine bottle and the work of Maria Sibylla

Browsed in http://www.thedieline.com  seeing a design for one wine label and then spotted another pretty ones for Christobel’s.

The idea for these label is to reflect the memory of Christobel who was passionate about flowers. And the illustration were inspired by the work of Maria Sibylla Merian, a pioneering woman of art in the 1600s. Below are some example of her work —Gorgeous!
