It was this Gucci ad that drew me to her work, and now that I’ve discovered Ruby Barber’s floral artistry, I’m hooked. Based in Berlin, Barber is one half of the creative team behind Mary Lennox. The name of the floral studio references the heroine of Frances Hodgson Burnett’s classic novel, The Secret Garden. Barber’s work spans from floral styling and set decoration to huge-scale installations. She’s partnered with Gucci, Asics and Zara Home, to name a few.  Wild, decadent and ethereal, it’s hard not to skip a breath when you see Barber’s creations. One writer described them quite perfectly as “perishable artworks.” That they only last a week or two, a month at most, is part of what makes them so exquisite.
