Hermès has released lipsticks based on its 75,000 silk scarves and 900 leather samples. There will be 24 shades. Technologists were inspired by the archive collection.
The refillable lipstick case is made of the same metal as the parts of classic Hermès bags.
“We wanted to do refillable so we could use more luxurious materials that had their own value,” Fashion United reported referring to Pierre Hardy, creative director of jewelry and shoes, who designed the packaging. “The idea is a form that’s both simple and playful enough to allow it to be done and redone ad infinitum. It’s rare for an artistic director to think about packaging over a long period of time and not just a one-off.”
