On July 4, Marley Natural made its European debut at the iconic French retailer colette during couture fashion week in Paris. Marley Natural body care products and smoking accessories are available from colette online and in-store at 213 rue Saint-Honoré.
Marley Natural and colette celebrated the occasion at a pop-up developed in collaboration with System Magazine and the fashion design duo Creatures of the Wind. In addition to Marley Natural products, the shop will also feature a limited-edition cannabis-inspired collection by Creatures of the Wind and System Magazine’s Issue No. 9, which includes a 140-page portfolio shot by photographer Juergen Teller at a Canadian medical cannabis facility.
“From Trenchtown to Paris, my grandfather’s music and message are universal,” said Zuri Marley, Bob Marley’s granddaughter, who hosted and curated music for the launch event at colette. “By bringing Marley Natural to Europe, we are celebrating, sharing, and spreading Bob’s belief in the positive potential of the herb to heal, inspire and create.”
VOGUE Magazine was also on hand to cover the launch in an article entitled "How a Cannabis Beauty Brand Is Changing Stoner Stereotypes in Paris." For the week following the launch, the article was one of the most-shared stories on VOGUE's website.
