For its Fall/Winter 2017 runway show, Balmain teamed up with Dolly Cohen, the Paris-based jeweler specializing in bijoux de bouche.
Cohen's Metallic Lipstick, which are one-of-a-kind, custom-made golden adornments for the lips, were shown on the Balmain FW17 runway show, held at Hotel Potocki during Paris Fashion Week.
Inspired by the singular beauty of Geisha's traditional minimal lip treatments, the Metallic Lipstick creations are golden mouth jewelry pieces that Cohen designed to give models' lips a striking golden highlight.
