Balmain Teamed Up With Jeweller Dolly Cohen On New Lip Jewels
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.
