The genderlessness made a big impression on him.With stark monochrome simplicity, Newton created a piece of iconography. L ́air Barbès Eau de Parfum was strongly influenced by the androgyny in this picture.
The perfume L ́air Barbès is a tribute to the fashion capital Paris. Evocative of Paris ́ different personas such as the concrete alleyways, le banlieue and the area Barbès – Rochechouart. Cold, light and fresh.
