New Lunette Colours!
The other day, Lunette unveiled their 2 new colours, PURPLE (woot!) and “Coral”. They have also released the new names for these 2 cups. Following the Goddess tradition, these cups are Cynthia (purple) and Áine (coral).
“New purple Lunette is called Cynthia!
Goddess Artemis was also known as Cynthia. This Greek Goddess of the moon, hunt and the night sky was later connected to Selene and Diana so she is continuing our chain of Moon Goddesses. Cynthia is an important symbol for young independent and unmarried woman. A flower sacred to Cynthia was Amaranth, with a deep purple color that inspired us to create this beautiful purple cup.” .
“New coral Lunette is called Áine!
Áine is the Goddess of moon, love, fertility and Midsummer in Irish mythology. Aine is also a Finnish word that means “substance” and “matter”. And this cup really matters! The beautiful coral color is one of the trendiest for the upcoming season and a beautiful homage to this goddess of summer.
That is… why the coral Lunette Áine will be available for purchase on summer 2011.”
To celebrate International Women’s Day (and the new cup colours) they ran a competition where the first 60 women to tag themselves in a photo at 9am (Finnish time) would win a new purple cup. This was posted in the morning my time, and I quickly went to check a world clock and kept that up all day, eagerly awaiting the start time! and… I WON ONE! WOOOOOOOOT! I’ve said many times how I wished Lunette would make a purple cup, and I’m extremely happy they have and that I’ll be one of the first women in the world to try one.
Of course, there will be pics and much swoonage when it arrives!
