There’s something ultra-summery with the new limited edition Rouge Hermès collection, thanks to colourful stripes that remind us of deck chairs and beach parasols. Designed by Pierre Hardy, these colourful refillable lipstick tubes contrast with their signature lacquered band in sunny shades that are meant to convey a seaside vibe — think colour combinations such as a fresh yellow and pastel green, juicy orange and red, or a classic navy and reddish-brown.
And we haven’t yet talked about the shades. As Gregoris Pyrpylis, creative director for Hermès Beauty puts it, the graphic collection debuts three “soft, warm, sun-kissed tones” and a transparent formula with sparkling finishes, carefully chosen to bring out that same summer inspiration.
Corail Parasol, for instance, is a lustrous coral with multi-coloured mother-of-pearl pigments that take after the way the sun sparkles when it hits the sea. Then, there’s Beige Croisette, a natural pink-toned beige that leaves a delicate trace of colour on the lips, followed by a deeper Brun Yachting, a radiant brown with hints of shimmering copper.
Here’s a closer look at the three new shades:
06 Corail Parasol: Like shimmering reflections on the waves, multi-coloured mother-of-pearl brings lustre to this orangey-pink.
10 Beige Croisette: A natural, slightly pink-toned beige that leaves a veil of delicate colour on the lips.
22 Brun Yachting: A luminous brown with coppery glints that embellishes the lips with a radiant glow.
THE COLLECTION IS PRICED AT $132 EACH AND AVAILABLE from 16 february AT HERMÈS LIAT TOWERS, HERMÈS MARINA BAY SANDS, HERMÈS TAKASHIMAYA, TAKASHIMAYA DEPARTMENT STORE, TANGS DEPARTMENT STORE AND ONLINE AT HERMES.COM.
