While black stands in opposition to all colors, occasionally, it’s the source of them. Black gives rise to color – the chromatic matrix, the pathfinder – inspired the new Rouge Hermes Autumn-Winter 2023 Limited-Edition Collection.
Designed by Pierre Hardy, creator of Hermès Beauty objects, the three original tubes are encased with shades of black. The object is hazy, like a misty landscape where light breaks through the clouds in a cross-fade from black to colour. The lines blend into a lacquered mist, their proportions appear reinvented.
“These deep, dense shades of coloured black deposit a subtle veil of unexpected colour on the lips, their non-sticky texture delivering shine and comfort. The colour and texture can be worked as the mood or moment takes you, instinctively.” – Gregoris Pyrpylis, Creative Director of Hermès Beauty.
72 Rouge Bruni
A strong, brick red with warm, velvety undertones. The lipstick is encased in an expanse of blue-green case.
84 Rouge Abysse
An elegant burgundy with a touch of cobalt, a true midnight sun encased in a burst of amethyst is paired with a flash of orange.
A purple illuminated from within by hints of pink, housed in a variation on emerald, is teamed with a purple flourish.
