The skin we live in

A series of kinetic installations, inspired by the skin and its surrounds.

Through June, select North American spaces feature installations inspired by the complexities of urban life. Each documents the imperfect relationship we have with our surrounds, suggesting the interaction of the skin with the elements.


This gesture is born of an understanding that the skin does not exist in isolation, rather it moves in constant flux, reacting to genetic and hormonal factors, climate, environment and pollution. 


To cater to its mercurial moods, our philosophy is to care, protect and not obsess. We emphasize the need to change regimens with shifts in climatic conditions—from doorstep to destination—and take pleasure in offering in-depth consultations, focussing on individual circumstance, environment and skin type. 


You are invited in-store to experience the displays and enjoy a complementary skin care consultation at your leisure.
