SINGAPORE - Media OutReach - 26 February 2019 - For International Women's Day, evian® is pleased to welcome for the first time a young French painter, Inès Longevial, to design its iconic annual Limited Edition. Since 2007, evian® has been known to pioneer fashion collaborations, working with such leading designers as Christian Lacroix, Kenzo and Alexander Wang.
Art has always been intimately linked to fashion as a major inspiration. This is why this year, evian® has decided to celebrate this unique relationship by inviting the young and talented artist Inès Longevial to create the new masterpieces for the collection. Based in Paris, the 28-year old artist has already made herself widely known by hosting exhibitions in Paris, Berlin, Los Angeles and San Francisco. Her paintings, simultaneously tender and strong, and inspired by such masters as Pablo Picasso and Pedro Almodovar, concentrate on two principal themes: femininity and nature. Longevial has brought new meaning and relevance to traditional painting with her distinctive expression of the world.
For the design of the evian® Limited Edition, Inès Longevial took inspiration from the 15-year long journey of evian® through the French Alps. "The ink stroke symbolizes the journey of the natural mineral water through the rocks of the French Alps, while the flowers represent the blossoming nature on the surface -- a source of pleasure" says Inès Longevial. This collaboration not only celebrates creativity and aesthetics but also tells the story of evian®.
