Coinciding with the launch of its new luxury serum Skin Caviar Harmony L’Extrait (€742/$750), Swiss beauty brand La Prairie has established a new art...

The Women Bauhaus Collective is a group of five young female artists from across the world celebrating the legacy of the women behind the Bauhaus movement, who were too often overshadowed by their male counterparts. Each creator shared artwork responding to the Bauhaus movement’s ‘pursuit of harmony’ in design at the 2022 Art Basel fair in Switzerland, alongside the serum’s launch.

Made with real Swiss caviar extract, the serum addresses weakened ligaments in the skin’s hypodermis. La Prairie collaborated with a Swiss bioanalytical laboratory to develop innovative test protocols for this typically under-addressed area. The serum helps strengthen and re-densify the skin’s ligaments, restoring a youthful and rejuvenated complexion.

Taking inspiration from the Bauhaus movement’s ‘form follows function’ concept, which marries beauty and practicality, the serum is housed in an artistic cobalt blue glass vessel. “The thing that you see here is a harmony in the proportions between the lines, the curves, the visual elements – they are arranged in a way that you feel that it’s a harmonious appearance of the packaging,” said La Prairie’s director of innovation, Daniel Stangl. “Because that was so important to underline that we want to restore harmony in the face.”
