Not unlike Hennessey‘s recent work with street artists KAWS and Futura 2000, Dom Pérignon has just launched an equally exciting collaboration. Last year, the LVMH Moët-Hennessy/Louis Vuitton-owned prestige champagne brand enlisted the vision of the iconic artist/filmmaker David Lynch. Working in a California studio transformed into a darkroom, the artist spent two days experimenting with light, form, shape and movement. For Dom Pérignon Vintage 2003 and Rosé Vintage 2000, Lynch took a vibrant, seductive and transgressive approach. The lush and dark limited edition “Dom Pérignon by David Lynch” will be available at fine wine purveyors worldwide starting in October.
Curated by the director himself, a launch party was held in Los Angeles to celebrate the launch of the bottles. Not dissimilar from his artistic approach to his designs, the party was an art show of sorts. Lynch designed a series of dark, atmospheric environments showcasing the bottles in context to the elements he leveraged in the creative process. Guests sipped champagne and enjoyed performances by The Kills and a DJ set by Diplo.
For NOWNESS, filmmaker Luke Gilford fashioned a surrealist portrait of the opening night party. Paying homage to David Lynch’s signature stylistic motifs and dream sequences.
