When co-designers Kathryn Forth and Julia Ritorto first met to conceptualise Acler, their common goal was to rebel against cookie-cutter digital design and bring the design process back to its fundamentally tactile roots. Each Acler piece is developed over a process of 12 months, and is subtly redrafted, and redraped along the way, allowing the design to take on its own form naturally. The end result is a meticulously constructed piece, which has an organic sculptural shape and an ultimately refined minimalism.
Continually seeking inspiration from the classics, the Los Angeles based design collective sets out to recreate them with a fresh reinterpretation in mind. An AGOLDE silhouette offers the authenticity and rarity found in discovering the perfect vintage pair.

From NYC to Paris, Moscow or Sydney… Juliette intrigues the world. Armed with her perfume, the Shakespearian heroine goes wild. Life is too short, and pleasures too many, says Juliette. The Gun, metaphor for the perfume, weapon of seduction, or simple accessory of bluff, essentially symbolizes the liberation of women towards men. And sometimes with a taste for revenge… But the concept is also influenced by romantism. A modern version, where reinventing couple and femininity is a constant quest
Juliette Has A gun's philosophy is to approach perfumery as an art and to be present only through a limited distribution such as concept stores, department stores or specialised perfumeries.
