FIRST LOOK: Mary Katrantzou Teams Up With Rodial Skincare

Rodial Skincare has upped the anti this season and teamed up with the lovely Mary Katrantzou - and yesterday we got a sneak preview of the result.

After debuting her first Autumn Winter collection at London Fashion Week in 2008, Mary Katrantzou’s popularity has soared. She has since collaborated with Topshop on three high street collections, designed a range of bags for Longchamp and in the March of this year she worked together with Current/Elliot to launch a collection on my-wardrobe.com inspired by her Spring Summer 2013 collection. Her dream-scene-esque digital prints have taken the fashion world by storm to such an extend that it was only a matter of time before she skipped over into the beauty world.

The Mary Katrantzou for Rodial candle smells as gorgeous as it looks!

Maria Hatzistefanis, founder of Rodial Skincare, herself in love with Mary’s signature bold prints, was keen to collaborate. The result? A limited edition scented candle inspired by Mary’s Nature Vs Nurture Collection. Maria spoke of the candle ‘I’m so excited to be launching this in collaboration with one of my favourite designers Mary Katrantzou. I am in love with Mary’s signature bold prints and think this candle is the perfect representation of two merging luxury brands.’ Mary herself was equally enthusiastic, saying ‘Rodial are the ultimate iconic beauty brand and this candle will be perfect for beauty fanatics and fashionistas everywhere’.

Mary Katrantzou and Maria Hatzistefanis all smiles at the launch of their collaboration!

We couldn’t agree more with Mary. The scent is incredible. Fresh citrus top notes of orange and lemon are complemented by fruity and floral base notes of pineapple and orange blossom. It’s the perfect accompaniment to those hazy late summer evenings in. As if smelling heavenly wasn’t enough, the candle boasts Mary’s beautiful Babelle print around the glass, making it the ultimate must-have home accessory of the season. But you’ll have to be quick to snap it up. The Mary Katrantzou Rodial Candle is a limited edition. It is £35.00 and will be available in September 2013, exclusively at Space NK at first before arriving at Harrods, Harvey Nichols and Selfridges.
