Amsterdam-based Atelier Ted Noten (known for his unique jewelry designs) has designed the white ‘Dior 001’ gun and the black ‘Chanel 001’ gun as part of a larger series entitled ‘7 necessities for a woman to feel like a woman through the eyes of a man.’
Ted Noten Make-up Kits
Branded as Dior 001 and Chanel 001, the white and black pistols pack a feminine punch as they double as make-up bags. The two Ted Noten Make-up Kits are 3D printed nylon guns are vehicles of finding a new language between the 3D printing technique and traditional goldsmithing.
The feminine firearms are retrofitted with hand-tooled 18-karat gold details and loaded with cosmetic ammo. There’s a lip gloss and wand in the muzzle, the loading chamber doubles as a pill compartment (complete with pills, including Viagra), 100 grams of certified silver bullion in the Dior gun clip, 50 grams of 24-karat gold in the Chanel, a toothpick and, in some models, a hairpin and a small vial of perfume. The guns also conceal a 4-gigabyte jump drive.
If you purchase one of the make-up kits, Noten’s Atelier can customize it and arrange refills. The white Dior gun costs 8,000 euros, (about $11,500 USD) and The black Chanel gun costs over $17,000. That’s a pretty penny for any pistol packing mamma.
