Throughout her career British supermodel Kate Moss has been the subject of many sculptures, paintings and of course, photographs. However for the latest piece of artwork aimed to pay homage to the iconic model, it was in fact her left breast which became the main source of inspiration.
Earlier this year Moss collaborated with 34 restaurant in London, Mayfair and British artist Jane McAdam to create a coupe (that’s a fancy champagne glass to those of you who didn’t know). The result? A wide rimmed, art deco inspired glass with Moss’s signature on the base. Not entirely coincidentally, the first ever champagne coupe was modelled on the famous French Queen Marie Antoinette’s left breast as well, hence where Moss got the idea.
Moss explained: “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.”
If you’d like to see/drink from the glass then head down to either The Ivy, Daphne’s, Scott’s or The Club at The Ivy in London.
