20 Sept - Fine Art, Bubbly, and New York Fashion Week

LAUNCHPROJECTS - Andy Warhol once joked about buying 2,000 bottles of Dom Pérignon and popping them all at the turn of the millennium. If only he could have attended the closing festivities of New York Fashion Week at Villa Pacri and its nightclub, Tzigan, in the Meatpacking district. Tzigan was transformed into a temporary mini-Warhol exhibit, and Dom Pérignon released its limited edition Champagne, A Tribute to Andy Warhol by Dom Pérignon.

“Inspired by Warhol’s unconventional representation of icons, and the playful use of codes and colour in his work, Dom Pérignon commissioned the Design Laboratory at Central Saint Martin’s School of Art & Design to reinterpret its timeless bottle. The result is a unique collection of three bottles, each with its distinct label in red, blue or yellow, paying homage to Warhol’s iconic colour games.”
