Just when you thought Jo Malone candles couldn’t get any more covetable, the Jo Malone London x Martyn Thompson collaboration is launched and we have to think again.
The interiors artist has collaborated with Jo Malone London on a new design-led capsule collection for the home. The Design Editions collection features three of the British brand’s signature home scents, dressed in decorative, floral ceramic designs by Martyn Thompson.
The candles have been carefully crafted by renowned British ceramic producers 1882 Ltd. in Stoke-on-Trent, the world capital of ceramics.
The collection includes decorated home candles in ethereal Mimosa & Cardamom and energising Lime Basil & Mandarin alongside a luxury candle in opulent Peony & Blush Suede, making an upscale statement centrepiece that would look spectacular in any room.
Martyn Thompson began his career in Sydney working in fashion as a designer and photographer. Moving to Paris and later London, his scope broadened into lifestyle and interiors. Thompson’s world embraces a love of life lived, inspired by a passion for light and shadow. Currently residing in New York, his tactile and emotive approach now extends to various elements of design, notably jacquard textiles and interior furnishings.
Martyn says: ‘When I was thinking about the scents, I mainly came to think about the colours that they suggested to me.
‘I spent a lot of time working on my photographs to make them look like paintings and I brought that very painterly sense to this collection.’
Each beautiful heritage ceramic piece will live on as a home accessory long after its fragrance has gone. We’ll take all three, please.
