Here’s a fashion collaboration update I never thought I’d hear: ace designer designs mint flavours! Yup, Goa-based designer Wendell Rodricks has designed a signature series for Nestle’s Polo (the famous mint with the hole).
Bizarre as it sounds, it seems the collaboration is for real. And while this may be highly unusual, the new Polo Wendell Rodricks flavours might just give those bored with mints a new sweet to munch on.
In the just-released TV ad, Wendell Rodricks is seen sketching dresses as models play around with fabrics with holes in them. The models then sashay down a ramp in a playful mood, and you see all the dresses have a Polo-inspired hole in them, such as on the shoulder straps and near the stomach.
Turns out Wendell Rodricks has created a signature series of Polo mints, creating some playful (and yum-sounding) flavours—Lime Mojito, Cocoa Mocha, Peach Schnapps and Watermelon Sorbet. We’re not sure to what extent Wendell Rodricks had a say in the taste of the new Polo range, but we want to try it.
What do you think of the ad? Have you tried Wendell Rodricks’ Polo signature flavours yet?
