la société parisienne de savons

continuing on the slight vintage french feel, here is a lovely story of a revival project. stéphane ouaknine, part of the french pharmacy market, made it a personal project to re-create and re-invent lost classic beauty and cosmetic graphics of yesteryear.

'(they spent a great deal of time) seeking out heirs to now defunct companies and obtaining permission to revive stunning vintage designs that had all but ceased to exist. working from faded scraps of ancient labels, I expanded upon the designs and created typography to extend them over complete suites of products.'
