To celebrate AJE ATHLETICA’s runway debut, IKKARI partnered as the official skincare sponsor against the iconic backdrop of The Sydney Opera House.
The synergy between the new age of activewear and our high-performance skincare offering showcases life on the move, as well as the fusion and philosophy of our founder Adrian Norris, whose vision of holistic health is based on the harmonious synchronicity of your mind, body and spirit as one.
In collaboration with lauded Makeup Artist and Skin Therapist Isabella Schimid, we curated a skincare ritual conceptualising a complexion to go beyond the bounds of the runway: healthy, luminous skin.
“I’m excited to be working with IKKARI, I love the way this ritual creates a beautiful, dewy base. You can use them everyday to give an immediate lift to your complexion, they do all of the heavy lifting, to celebrate your best skin,” says Schimid.
A curated ritual for healthy skin, a protocol you can do yourself at home.
The ultimate ritual to purify and prepare skin.
“First, the Clear Skin Cleansing Oil, it’s a really soft, silky oil that gently melts away all of the impurities in the skin and gets the complexion looking luminous.”
CLEAR SKIN CLEANSING OIL

As a special treat for this AJE ATHLETICA show, I finished by misting Purifying Mist Toner just before the models walked the runway, lightly spritzing over their face and upper body to evoke a post-workout glow.”
