If you’re used to buying soaps at the grocery store, you know the options are awfully boring at best. Even most “boutique” brands usually adopt that stuffy, tired Victorian-lace-and-flowers scheme. Dig a little deeper though, and a whole world of novelty hand washes and soaps can be found, perfect for sprucing up the look of your kitchen or restroom (there’s even these if colorful language is your thing).
For a bit of noir in your shower, go with Hudson Made’s black-on-black, or if you love a good angle, there’s The Equilateral from Bar Soap Brooklyn. Studio J’s Pearl + soap on a rope will satisfy even the pickiest of design snobs. All 22 beautiful soap package designs in the gallery above are shaking up the sudsy status quo with bold ideas and eye-catching executions.
