The dial fea­tures my sig­na­ture lip­stick sym­bol, which is used on a fic­tional woman—my muse. She’s con­fi­dent and the type of woman who thinks, “Hey, I am the best thing to hap­pen to this world.”

Why do you use lip­stick?

It’s the per­fect sym­bol for the 21st-cen­tury woman. It’s univer­sal, worn by dif­fer­ent kinds of women, and can evoke dif­fer­ent moods and emo­tions. This va­ri­ety is im­por­tant for me be­cause women are mul­ti­fac­eted and have many dif­fer­ent roles in life. I want to ex­press this in my art­work.

What’s your mes­sage?

The women I de­pict are strong and pow­er­ful. Women’s em­pow­er­ment has de­vel­oped unimag­in­ably since the early 20th cen­tury. They can vote and have a tremen­dous im­pact on so­ci­ety. This is a woman’s world right now and I want to cel­e­brate that.

What did you en­joy most about your col­lab­o­ra­tion with Hublot?

The meet­ings were al­ways ex­cit­ing and it was great see­ing our ideas come to­gether using 3D tech­nol­ogy for the first time. Hublot is an artis­tic mai­son and re­spected my process as a cre­ative. We fit­ted to­gether like two pieces of a puz­zle and ev­ery­thing was very collaborat­ive.
