WHY IT CAUGHT OUR EYE
For Mave founder Marisa Newman, art should be an inherent aspect of our daily rituals, even when it comes to shaving our legs. When she couldn’t find a razor that she wanted to display in her bathroom, the former gallerist and curator made her own. In 2016, Newman reimagined the world of shaving and revealed Mave New York, which includes a streamlined razor, handcrafted shave brush, and full line of body products with a signature scent of fleur cardamom (subtle spices, black tea, and citrus).
But the hero in the assortment was inspired by Constantin Brâncusi’s Bird in Space sculpture. Newman designed a sleek off-white razor with an elongated handle (6 inches, to be exact) that makes it easy to shave those hard-to-reach places. The razor is made from high-quality long-lasting resin that can stand up to the constant moisture of the shower, and it is compatible with the Gillette Venus Blade. Consider it the chicest shower essential you never knew you needed.
THE ARTIST RESPONSE

“The razor adds a luxe layer to the Mave shaving process. I love how it really turns shaving your legs into a beauty ritual that you actually look forward to.”—Kirin Bhatty, makeup artist
