I was vaguely aware of Kiko Milano and hadn’t tried a lot of their products except the lip scrub. But I was curious about their latest press launch at the Covent Garden store so I tagged along and it’s a good thing I did because now, the brand is firmly on my radar and I’m loving the products I’ve seen so far.
Back to Wanderlust, the latest limited edition collection from Kiko Milano inspired by the desire to travel and explore.
In summary, think of the excitement of the outdoors, sun kissed landscapes and beauty with personality when you experience the new Wanderlust Collection.
A closer look at Wanderlust Collection by Kiko Milano
Before I get into what actually makes up the Wanderlust Collection, let me touch on the gold and white packaging which I love – it’s luxurious, chic, eye catching and draws you in.
Kiko Milano collaborated with renowned futuristic designer Ross Lovegrove who created the packaging with travel on the go in mind as well as what he calls the brand’s ‘Kikoness’ – a combination of sensuality, femininity, cheerfulness and practicality. He’s not wrong there, the packaging has a stylish look and feel, it’s easy to use – you can open and close without hassle and it’ll be easy to clean as well.
