Kiehl’s Partners With Kenny Scharf for Children’s Causes

Iconic Pop Surrealist Kenny Scharf puts his designs to Kiehl’s Creme de Corps Collection limited edition labels this holiday season to raise $200,000 for children’s causes around the world.

Kiehl’s continues its philanthropic tradition this holiday season in support of causes that work to create safer and more sustainable environments for children. Having raised $600,000 through previous holiday initiatives, Kiehl’s invited Scharf to design its 4th Annual limited edition Creme de Corps Collection, with 100% of net profit from each item sold going toward benefitting more than 40 children’s causes around the world.

Kenny Scharf – the legendary pop artist
Best known for his paintings, performances and installations that incorporate pop and comic imagery, Kenny Scharf is an icon in the world of pop surrealism. Scharf burst onto New York’s eclectic East Village art scene in the early 1980s joining the likes of Andy Warhol, Jean-Michel Basquiat and Keith Haring. As the sole living master amongst the group, Scharf continues to produce his instantly recognisable “creatures” on renowned building facades and low-key urban surfaces featuring his playful Pop aesthetic. Regardless of location, Scharf’s work remains public, accessible and brilliant.

Scharf’s latest medium – Kiehl’s Creme de Corps
Scharf’s newest, unconventional medium is Kiehl’s 4th Annual Limited Edition Creme de Corps Collection featuring his vibrant work ‘Globo Mundo’. Customised for Kiehl’s, Scharf describes Globo Mundo as “representing the whole world or globe; this application of my art was inspired by Kiehl’s, its patrons and their work in communities around the world.”

“Collaborating with Kiehl’s to benefit children’s charities around the world is a dream come true. It is extremely gratifying to know that our project will affect young men and women in more than 40 countries worldwide. Kiehl’s is providing a vehicle to share my beliefs, bringing attention to worthwhile causes around the world. Together, we are making a difference one bottle of Creme de Corps at a time,” says Kenny Scharf

The three-piece Creme de Corps Collection with the limited edition Kenny Scharf-designed label includes:
