Slow Factory is proud to present our latest collaboration with acclaimed visual artist Shantell Martin on this collection, which ties the magic of Le Petit Prince with the whimsical visual storylines of Shantell Martin.
The launch of this collection marks Antoine de Saint-Exupéry's birth date, June 29th, and is made of ethereal scarves also coincides with the $80 million animated adaptation about the novella by director Mark Osborne, which premiered at the Cannes Film Festival last month.
Slow Factory’s founder Celine Semaan Vernon & Shantell Martin have created a unique silk scarf from a unique collage of the Prince on Rosetta’s Comet 67P/Churyumov-Gerasimenko and Martin’s drawings, which create a universe of their own.
This collaboration from Slow Factory, Petit Prince and Shantell Martin celebrates Science and Fiction — ESA’s landing on the Comet 67P/Churyumov-Gerasimenko, and the classic novella by Antoine de Saint-Exupéry that gave so many of us the inspiration to dream of space as children.
Acclaimed visual artist Shantell Martin builds upon the cosmic mystery of the imagery with her original drawings that are a part of her ‘Dream’ series, a whimsical visualization of the subconscious which build on Slow Factory’s collage of the classic image of the Prince in his Asteroid replacing it with high-res photo taken by Rosetta on 14 February 2015.
Slow Factory is excited to present this collection, an oneiric universe honoring the philosophic nature of the novella. Scarves will be available at www.slowfactory.com from June 15th, 2015, starting at $55 for the pocket scarf version and $175 for the larger size.
