Would you like to drink champagne from a glass shaped like Kate Moss’s breast? For couple of centuries you’ve been drinking bubbly from a coupe shaped like Marie Antoinette’s left breast, it’s about time to give someone else’s left breast a chance to shine. To celebrate British supermodel’s 40th birthday and her 25-year service to the fashion industry, 34 Restaurant in London’s Mayfair District appointed Jane McAdam Freud to create a bespoke champagne glass. If you must know, McAdam is painter Lucian Freud’s daughter and Sigmund Freud’s great-granddaughter.
The coupe bowl features Art Deco-inspired elaborate decorations, while Moss’s signature is etched on the base. The glass design is broad-bowled and shallow with a long stem. As described by Freud, “the glass is an intricate abstract design reminiscent of Art Deco symmetry which, when held at an angle, shows a beautiful curvy shape”.
“I was excited to participate in this project – what an honor 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,” Moss said in a statement.
Unfortunately Kate Moss champagne coupes are not for sale (at least for the time being). Bespoke glasses are created to serve drinks only at 34 Restaurant and its sister establishments The Ivy, Daphne’s, Scott’s and The Club at The Ivy. In early October Kate Moss will be on hand at 34 Restaurant’s Emin Room to launch the Moss Champagne coupe. Party’s sponsor Dom Pérignon’s latest vintage P2-1998 will be flowing from Moss-coupe for guests to sip.
