Christian Lacroix Gave Chivas a MakeoverMay 19, 2011 @ 4:45 pm
Here’s something to glam up your summer cocktail parties: Christian Lacroix teamed up with Chivas Scotch whisky on a limited-edition bottle makeover. The decadent design features a crystal-encrusted label and comes nestled in a Jacquard-fabric-covered box. “The encasing was inspired by a French renaissance reliquary which we have recreated with the symbols cherished by both Chivas Regal and the Christian Lacroix House—the Lion, the Crest, and the embroideries of a torero’s cape, the 20th century knight,” Lacroix’s Creative Director Sacha Wolkoff told InStyle. “As for the bottle, we have dressed it with a hand embroidered brocade escutcheon, such as were the doublets from the Middle Ages.” The bottle hits shelves tomorrow, and New Yorkers can purchase it at Astor Wines for $495. Cheers!
