Balmain Teamed Up With Jeweller Dolly Cohen On New Lip Jewels

Balmain

Now that the dust has settled on another fashion month, we’d like to draw attention to a very special collaboration that might have flown under your radar. Which we would forgive you for, given the collaborations that seem to be announced on a weekly basis, but this one’s special. Trust us. You know that famous Kim engagement announcement selfie? Yeah, that one – with the rock that looks like it cost more than the entire GDP of a small country. Well, the woman behind Kim’s striking mouth jewellery – or should I say bijoux de bouche? teamed up with Balmain for their AW17 runway show in Paris last week. Her name is Dolly Cohen, and here she created Metallic Lipstick, which was not, in fact, lipstick – rather a special gold (or platinum) piece of mouth jewellery. Sort of like an upmarket grill. Roar.
