On December 25, Selfridges will be launching a new limited-edition collection by Tom Ford called Lips & Boys, which will be available to buy exclusively from the department store’s website. The range consists of 50 miniature lipsticks, each inspired and named after a key man in the designer’s life from past to present – from first crush Addison to best friend Rory, as well as son Alexander.
Encased in chic black and gold casing, the collection offers a shade to suit every occasion, spanning nude, brown, pale pink, mauve, fuchsia, magenta, metallics and pop colours, as well as violet and red – 36 of these lipsticks have been created as brand new pigments for the luxury beauty brand. Tom Ford himself has predicted that bestsellers will include coral-hued Tomas and deep rose-tinted Giacomo. The small scale of the design (2g rather than the usual full-sized 3g) also allows consumers to carry around the lipstick in clutch bags, making it an ideal evening accessory.
“I like the idea of lipsticks named after boys,” says Tom Ford. “Why commit to one when you can have several?”
