Arms and Armory x Cirque Introduces “Alter Ego” Collaboration
New York, NY (November 2012) - Just in time for the Holidays, New York-based artisans, Arms and Armory and Cirque, team up to release a unique project called Alter Ego, a special edition ring and nail polish duo. This set will be released December 3, 2012 and can be purchased through the Arms and Armory and Cirque websites.
With the advent of style blogs that feature everything from vintage finds to carefully selected “Arm Parties” and “What’s in My Bag” photos, its no surprise that fashion and beauty go hand-in-hand. By fusing the latest trends in these industries, Arms and Armory and Cirque developed an idea that would bring back a 1990s cult trend. Alter Ego is a collaboration that features an art deco-inspired ring, designed by Arms and Armory, and a cosmic black nail lacquer, handmade by Cirque. The gunmetal-plated ring has an adjustable band that can fit a range of sizes and boasts a black enamel triangle in the center. It is paired with an untraditional black polish that displays a bold prismatic flame when exposed to direct lighting.
About Arms and Armory is a New York-based art collective specializing in hand crafted jewelry. Inspired by old mythology, science history and magic, Arms and Armory blends the ideas of the future with styles of the past to create beautiful works of wearable art.
Cirque is an artisanal line of hand-blended nail polish made in New York. The name Cirque, meaning ring or circle, represents the color wheel and the endless color possibilities in the continuum. Creator, Annie Pham, sought to develop colors that transcend those of conventional brands by experimenting with unique pigments and raw materials. Cirque nail polish is 3-free, which means it does not contain toluene, formaldehyde and dibutyl phthalate.
