Launching globally on 1 November 2019, Aesop Gift Kits 2019-20: Of Muse and Myth celebrates the ancient Muses of Greek mythology, the goddesses of the arts, honoured since antiquity as inspirations in culture, literature and the arts.
‘At Aesop, we draw constant inspiration from the arts; it’s the gel that binds the spirit of the company, from retail design to product innovation to our cultural partnerships,’ said Marsha Meredith, Aesop’s Creative Director. So it was fitting that this year’s theme celebrated the mythological figures who are considered to have birthed the arts, inspiring musicians, writers, and performers over the ages.’
Housed in reusable tan amenity cases, each kit is wrapped in a vibrant sleeve featuring New York-based artist Giovanni Garcia-Fenech’s original illustrations of the iconic Muses of music, dance, history, comedy, and epic poetry, alongside their associated symbols. Inspired by early modernism and the ancient Greek ceramic-painting style, his playful figures bring delight to the eyes and smiles to lips, mirroring the mischievous side of mythological gods.
