The Prolific Paloma
Hailed for her daring jewellery, leather-based purses and, after all, her crimson lipstick, Paloma Picasso presents a brand new assortment primarily based on the linens in her New York bed room.
“I used to be actually a tomboy,” says Paloma Picasso, “and, I need to admit, at all times the strongest one within the class.” At house—in Paris, Cannes or Vallauris—she performed with toy automobiles and puppets in addition to paper dolls made by her artist father Pablo Picasso, created dolls’ wigs from her personal hair, and dreamed of being a hairdresser.

However as an alternative, Picasso’s daughter selected to design purses, jewellery and teapots, one perfume and one crimson lipstick—whose success amuses her as a result of when she started carrying lipstick, pale lips had been in style and the one crimson she may discover was a rancid providing at a Paris flea market. As we speak, after all, Mon Rouge is on everybody’s lips, together with her personal. “My solely option to shock folks,” she laughs, “is to not put on crimson lipstick.”
Now Picasso has a group of mattress linens for Martex mixing autobiographical elements.
