To celebrate Kate Moss 25 years in the fashion industry, a champagne glass moulded from her left breast has been created.
The British supermodel has an ever increasing presence across the fashion world; from modelling to more recently directing and styling for Vogue. But this seems to be the most bizarre collaboration yet.
Forty-year-old Moss has teamed up with a sculptor and a London restaurant to create the unique champagne glass in her honour.
Mayfair’s 34 Restaurant, where Moss celebrated her star-studded 40 birthday lunch back in January, commissioned British artist Jane McAdam Freud, daughter of late painter Lucien Freud who Moss posed for while pregnant, to create a mould of the model’s breast.
The establishment described the result as an "intricate abstract design reminiscent of Art Deco symmetry which, when held at an angle, shows a beautiful curvy shape” and the coupe has her “Kate” signature accompanied by a small heart on the base, as seen on all her beauty collaborations like for example Rimmel London.
The mother-of-one will host the inauguration of the glasses herself at the swanky restaurant in early October, where guests will reportedly drink Dom Pérignon's latest vintage from Moss’ coupes. The coupes will be available at 34 and at its sister restaurants The Club at The Ivy, Daphne’s and Scott’s.
This is not the first time that a moulded-chest glass has been made. It’s believed that the first champagne glass made in the 18 Century was modelled on the left breast of late French queen Marie Antoinette, which was the inspiration for artist McAdam Freud.
Moss seems honoured with the unusual collaboration. She said: ''I was excited to participate in this project - what an honour to be alongside Marie Antoinette - she was a very intriguing and mischievous character… champagne is always associated with celebration and happy occasions and I had fun creating this beautiful coupe.''
