The debut Liam collection, First, had its first delivery into RUBY stores Thursday 16th February. To celebrate a limited edition Liam candle and a series of podcasts, inspired by the debut collection, have been released. Working with Charlotte Ryan from 95bFM’s Morning Glory, a series of four podcasts, entitled Thinking Out Loud, have been developed.

Charlotte brings together an array of interesting minds, whose ideas are too brilliant not to share, and gives us their take on the themes that inspired the Liam collection with the intention of activating a community conversation. Interviewees include: Writer; Emily Perkins, Merrill Garbus from tUnE-yArDs, Dee Dee from The Dum Dum Girls, Graphic Designer Jason Munn and Eating Designer Marije Vogelzang as well as other interesting, creative people such as perfume makers, chefs and walkers from the Full Moon Hike in Southern California.

The podcast themes & release dates are as follows:
1. Modern Ceremony (listen now!)
Monday 20th February
What are modern ceremonies of today that we participate in and what do they mean to those interviewed?

2. The Philosophy of Scent
Monday 27th February
How does scent work to evoke memory and influence the way we enjoy a space or moment in time? What is the significance of scent through history?

3. Elegance
Monday 5th March
How do those in creative industries perceive elegance within the context of their field of work?

4. Modern Symbolism
Monday 12th March

The podcasts will be played on Morning Glory on 95bFM and available to download from the Liam Soundcloud profile and from http://www.rubynz.com/friends/liam-podcasts/

Continuing in the spirit of Modern Ceremony, Liam releases a sandalwood and lime scented candle entitled Ceremony, which by lighting encourages us to celebrate our own ceremony. Crafted in New Zealand, it is available to purchase for $49 exclusive to RUBY stores and online.
