Copper Fragrance

A multifaceted, sensorial campaign conceptualised, photographed and directed by Tyler Mitchell for Comme des Garçon’s ‘Copper’ fragrance. Using oxidised textures and abstract limbs, Mitchell creates a visual allegory for black celebration, a common theme running throughout his work.

I wanted to visually link the idea of copper — a material typically perceived to be cheaper than gold — to the idea of black and brown skin and richness as a way of elevating the two.
