“I was a teenager when I first discovered the picture of Helmut Newton that made YSL Le Smoking an icon. I was really impressed by being asexual. With austere monochrome simplicity, Newton created an iconography that still influences me. When creating L´air Barbès, I was strongly influenced by the androgyny of this image. "
The iconic cosmetics brand 19-69 was founded by the Swedish artist and product designer Johan Bergelin, currently stationed in New York. The name 19-69 stands for freedom, tolerance and counterculture. The inspiration covers various iconic moments of the counterculture throughout history. Art, music and different cultures have also left their mark on products in terms of content, names and packaging. The different colors symbolize the rainbow, which in 1969 was a symbol of peace and freedom.
