Paris, 2017-Dec-04 — /EPR Retail News/ — As the 2017 holiday season begins, Dom Pérignon has unveiled a new creative collaboration with Japanese artist Tokujin Yoshioka. Tokujin Yoshioka has designed a limited-edition coffret and reinterpreted the emblematic shield on the bottle, celebrating the exceptional nature of Dom Pérignon Vintage 2009.

Following renowned artists including Marc Newson, Karl Lagerfeld, David Lynch and Iris van Herpen, Dom Pérignon invited Japanese artist Tokujin Yoshioka to revisit the bottle and coffret for Dom Pérignon Vintage 2009.

Produced in a year of prodigious sunlight and heat, the 2009 vintage of Dom Pérignon is a luminous, solar champagne that resonates perfectly with the stunning beauty of light that characterizes Tokujin Yoshioka’s work. His creation revisits this exceptional Dom Pérignon vintage, evoking its radiant vibration to the eye and the palate, says Dom Pérignon  Chef de Cave Richard Geoffroy: “The artistic affinity Tokujin shares with Dom Pérignon was evident to me from our first encounter. As we tasted the champagne, he instinctively expressed a strong connection with the solar character of Dom Pérignon Vintage 2009.”

To express the singular potential of this vintage, Tokujin Yoshioka presents an installation of three crystal blocks that form a prism to embrace the champagne bottle. “The notions of light, transparency and brilliance are especially relevant for this vintage,” says the artist. As an expansion of his installation, Tokujin Yoshioka  also revisited the Maison’s emblematic shield, which is reprised on the coffret along with the artist’s signature.

The Dom Pérignon edition by Tokujin Yoshioka will be available in a limited edition by special order for the 2017 year-end holiday season. The artist has also created a reinterpretation of Dom Pérignon Rosé 2005.

Louis Vuitton launches new collection of rolling luggage in collaboration with Marc Newson

Louis Vuitton has unveiled  a new collection of rolling luggage created in collaboration with Australian designer Marc Newson. Amazingly lightweight and sturdy, the new Louis Vuitton luggage is expressly designed for the 21st century traveler.

Paris, 2016-Jul-22 — /EPR Retail News/ — Louis Vuitton first made its reputation by creating travel trunks matched to the needs of travelers.  Today the House carries on this tradition with a new collection of wheeled suitcases, designed in collaboration with Marc Newson. “What compelled me to join forces with Louis Vuitton was the challenge to design a great piece of luggage,” says the designer, recognized for his innovative style in a wide range of disciplines. “Like a lot of people, I travel a lot and I feel that I am in many ways kind of uniquely placed to be able to create this luggage, both as  a consumer and as a designer.

Eighteen months of development and three patent applications resulted in a totally innovative suitcase. Made of a new  composite material that is both exceptionally thin and elastic, the luggage is able to withstand the rigors of travel while weighing less. Even the Monogram canvas is lighter thanks to a specially developed version that weighs 50% less without compromising the original characteristics. In a nod to Louis Vuitton’s historic trunks, the corners and handles are covered with natural cowhide. Thanks to a structure that increases resistance and frees interior space, the new luggage boasts an increase in internal volume of 15% while at the same time reducing its weight.

The Maison has introduced innovative services too, offering a 48-hour after-sales repair service in 14 cities around the world, integrated in the Louis Vuitton travel app.
