Lancome Advanced Genifique : an icon under the eye of 20 artists

The Little Black Bottle
To mark the launch of Advanced Génifique, Lancôme’s most powerful youth activator, twenty artists – photographers and illustrators – have turned their attention to the iconic silhouette of the serum with 130 international awards. Entitled The Little Black Bottle, this collection of images will be displayed on the brand’s site and offered to a selection of VIPs in the form of an extremely limited-edition book (2,500 copies worldwide)

Hailing from Korea, France, China, England, the United States, Germany, Italy, Spain, Russia and Japan, the participants in the The Little Black Bottle project have all endeavoured to portray the iconic dimension of the glass bottle with the black silhouette recognisable at first glance. 

A dimension to which few products can lay claim, the fruit of a fascination that is both personal and shared. Through the variety of the approaches – colour or black and white, brush or film, abstraction or narration, their ink and paper tribute illustrates the universality of Advanced Génifique’s message. 

When art pays homage to an ideal that it has helped to celebrate for centuries: youth, a dream more than ever within reach.
