Always on the scent of the latest and greatest, the specialty stores Colette in Paris and Silly Thing in Hong Kong deliver yet again. This times, they’ve jointly produced 400 candles, whose boxes were designed by Eric Elms. The American graphic artist’s vibrant work has a wide reach, including everything from t-shirts to mixed-media sculptures to sneakers. Each of the marshmellow-scented Colette X Silly Thing candles sells for 25 euros, or about $33.20. Colette has worked with artists before, partnering with photographer Maurice Scheltens and animators Kuntzel + Deygas.
