Brace yourselves for more Gucci brights as the Italian brand is launching a new lipstick line under the creative direction of Alessandro Michele.
The collection, featuring 36 shades, will arrive this week, according to WWD. Expect to see the same vibrant colors that have hit the Gucci catwalk in recent seasons, from bold reds to head-turning pinks.
The shades were chosen with diversity and inclusion in mind and are sure to champion self-expression.
‘Make-up is something poetic and fleeting that you can add to your face, changing or highlighting something about yourself,’ Michele told WWD.
‘I find it an almost magical language, strongly linked to the other details I use for the expression of the self, such as jewelry and a hairstyle. Of all these aspects needed to emphasize or underline an aspect of ourselves, make-up is the most immediate and the oldest way, making it the most fascinating.’
‘Lipstick is the most beautiful object you can find inside a handbag,’ he continued. ‘It is the most fascinating because it has always had a beautiful scent — we made Gucci lipsticks perfumed with violet.
Lipstick is a playful object because it recalls crayons that children color with. Lipstick also symbolizes the world of cinema, and all the famous lips from Hollywood.’
