Over the weekend, Drake, former actor-turned-rapper, celebrated his 29th birthday. In honor of the Toronto native’s born day, fashion designer and Haute 100 lister Tom Ford announced he is releasing a lipstick that will be named after Drake.
The lip color, which will be a shade of deep burgundy, will be released as part of the second edition of Ford’s Lips & Boys collection. A representative told New York Magazine’s The Cut, “Drake did write a song called Tuscan Leather so there is a connection.”
The collection will feature a total of 50 Lips & Boys items. It will include 25 of the last year’s shades and 25 new ones, including the one named for the rapper and others like Ansel, Joaquin, and Rocco. Drake, which is sure to be a highly anticipated lip color, can be on your lips for $32. The entire collection is slated to debut Black Friday, Nov. 27th on the brand’s website.
Earlier this month, the fashion designer debuted his spring/summer 2016 womenswear collection as well as a new boutique in Houston, Tx. The video features Lady Gaga alongside models Mica Arganaraz, Lexi Boling, Kayla Scott, Xiao Wen Ju, Lucky Blue Smith and more. In a statement, Ford said, “Instead of having a traditional show this season, I decided to try something new. Having a runaway show has become so much about the creation of imagery for online and social media and watching a filmed fashion show can be like watching a filmed play [which is never satisfying]. I wanted to think about how to present a collection in a cinematic way that was designed from its inception to be presented online. I have always loved ‘Soul Train,’ which use to be on TV in the 70s; as it was as much about the clothes as the music. I asked Nile Rodgers to collaborate on a new version of one of his great hits from that time, ‘I Want Your Love,’ and worked with Gaga to record the vocals. Gaga and Nile are both brilliant artists and the resulting collaboration between the two of them is I think very powerful.”
As for the new boutique, it is located in the River Oats District at 4444 Westheimer Road, Suit A175.
