Stripes create contrasts, they divide and give structure. A classic visual element which is almost indispensable in design. French heritage house Hermès invites us to take a short trip to the beach—with a packaging graced by modern stripes adapted from classic swimwear. The limited spring/summer collection consists of three colors with a new glossy finish that gives the lips a subtly tinted veil of light: Brun Yachting, Corail Parasol and Beige Croisette. The sensual, fine texture of the sticks applies the color with a single stroke.
Already in 2020, Hermès launched its sixteenth metier La Beauté Hermès and the first Rouge Hermès collection dedicated to the beauty of the lips. An emblematic collection that includes a biannual limited collection of three bold and contrasting colors created to add a new dimension to beauty. The métier is committed to excellence and the savoir-faire characteristic of Hermès and is a collaborative creation under the direction of Pierre-Alexis Dumas, the artistic director of Hermès.
Rouge Hermès lipsticks are unique Hermès objects that express all the principles of the house. They have the same functional aesthetics as all objects of the maison. Various creative minds of the house have worked closely together during the creation process: Pierre Hardy, creative director for shoes and jewelry at Hermès, designed the object. The lipsticks are assembled by hand from noble materials – lacquered, brushed and polished metal in black, white or permabrass.
Hermès, a house of objects since 1837, is also a pioneer in sustainable lipstick design. The cosmetic products impress not only with their aesthetically pleasing appearance but also with their sustainable approach. The sticks are made of plastic-free materials and are refillable, designed for a long life.
