Why try to cram your lipstick tube in to that stylish tiny clutch when you can elegantly fit it on the side? Tom Ford and his design team has come with a brilliant idea to solve that “no room for lipstick tube in the clutch” problem. His latest creation, the Lipstick Minaudière from the Spring 2015 collection is a limited edition that come with a lipstick holder. Made from plexiglass, the minaudière is offered in colors gold, silver and multi-color.
The Lipstick Minaudière feature a tubular gold chain strap, allowing it to be carried over the shoulder or by hand. Other highlights include the interior leather pouch with enough room for essentials like the phone, few currency notes and such. Mechanics of the lipstick holder works via two gold rings on the side that hold the lipstick tube. Each clutch comes with a starter lipstick in Tom Ford signature nude shade called Vanilla Suede. Ingredient list of the Vanilla Suede looks like they belong at Nobu than on a lipstick and include soja seed extract, Brazilian murumuru butter and chamomilla flower oil. These natural ingredients provides its ultra-creamy texture that allows for a smooth application.
How much this all costs? The fashionable Lipstick Minaudière and the lipstick tube with exotic ingredients do not come cheap. It is offered with a fancier price tag at $3,950. But, if you ask Naomi Campbell she would say she’s worth it and if you are a lady with a busy night life that include fancy dinners and dancing in the moonlight, this maybe a small price to pay. The clutch is available for pre-order from tomford.com.
