The coupe designer explained the process: the original mould was made from the malleable pink gummy material used by dentists, before the basic shape was created in glass with a lacy 30s decorative pattern added. The idea came from the early invention of the champagne coupe, or cup, supposedly modelled around Marie Antoinette’s left breast. “The plaster felt quite heavy,” said Kate, drawing Kate’s silhouette in the air as she explained the process of the modelling of her body shape.

The Breast-bowl or nipple-jatte, was created in 1787 as a royal command for the Dairy of Rambouillet, a place offered by Louis XVI to Marie Antoinette, who enjoyed the rural "design" of the place and neoclassical decorations that were in vogue at that time. It is even said, but it is a legend, that the curve of the Breast-bowl was obtained by molding the royal breast!
