Creative Licence: The Best Wearable Art

Is that special woman in your life a modern art enthusiast? Well these gift ideas are sure to make her expression priceless

The 1929 painting ‘Treachery of Images’, by surrealist artist René Magritte, marked a watershed moment in conceptual art, and indeed semiotics. His seminal image of a pipe famously pointed out that the two-dimensional representation before us was, in its artifice, not a pipe at all; and with it opened the doors to countless other creative explorations of all that art and language cannot be or say. Cultural references don’t come much better than this. So, as Christmas creeps towards us on the back of the autumnal evenings, and that interminable questions sets in – What to buy the sharp-as-a-knife woman in our life? – how about, this year, a wearable piece of iconic 20th-century art.

This Is Not Any Old Perfume

Histoire de Parfums’ complex and seductive range of unisex fragrances directly nods to Magritte’s groundbreaking artwork. Entitled This is Not a Blue Bottle, the series evokes a conceptual big bang, travelling from the abstract to the emotional. This handbag-sized bottle will work straight through the holiday season and is a work of art in itself.
