Sophie Black X The Saponifist

Twas a girl with eyes of stark
Contradictions that invite remarks
Cobwebs of wild hair
Giggles with impish flair
Sophie Black, see you in the dark

This coming All Hallows' Eve we’d like present to you a limited edition collaborative soap project Sophie Black, with Singapore based Malaysian illustrator, Sokkuan Tye. A lazy gardener in previous life, her beautiful artworks are featured in CutOut Magazine’s 10 Best Female Fashion Illustrators Worldwide, Asian Illustrators by Monsa and also Great Big Book of Fashion Illustration by Martin Dawber.

This project is based on a fictional character, Sophie Black, created by Sokkuan as an expression of every girl's macabre and conflicting self. Sokkuan had been immortalizing Sophie in many of her personal projects, one being our absolute favourite, Absolut Bloody, a limited edition collectible collaboration with Absolut Vodka. Can you imagine just how ecstatic we are when Sophie wanted to join us in the shower?

Being our first collaborative work, we think Sophie had really been kind to us albeit some botched batches of soaps (she really is mischievous). We would like to however extend many thanks to Sokkuan for the opportunity and also to Sin who had made this connection possible. To good omens, you lucky starlings.

And we’ll be looking forward to many more projects like these in the future ;)

Sophie Black will be available on 28th October 2012 at Fuyoh Art Bazaar, Publika and online from 31st October 2012.
