Veuve Clicquot Taps Yayoi Kusama for Polka Dot-Covered Champagne Box
The limited-edition collaboration also includes a special sculpture.
While continuing to showcase her work around the world, Yayoi Kusama has now joined forces with Veuve Clicquot Champagne for a limited-edition bottle and gift box. The creative’s famous polka dot designs are splashed onto the French house’s La Grande Dame.
The upcoming release follows Kusama and Veuve Clicquot’s previous collaboration back in 2006, where the artist recreated a portrait of the maison’s founder, Madame Clicquot. “It is with its iconic symbols, that Yayoi Kusama adorns La Grande Dame 2012 case and bottle. The opulent flower symbolizes vital energy, love and celebration of life. The polka dots, Yayoi Kusama’s signature patterns are reworked like champagne bubbles to embody La Grande Dame 2012,” an official press release reads.
The box is dressed with a bold color palette of yellow, blue and green, with a flower motif printed at the front. The bottle is adorned with an orange-yellow label with black polka dots. In addition to the gift boxes, which are priced at $195 USD, Kusama has created floral sculptures that can fit a magnum bottle of La Grande Dame that retails for $36,000 USD.
The Yayoi Kusama x Veuve Clicquot collaboration will be going on pre-sale beginning September 17 and is set to hit shelves in October. You can head over to the French champagne label’s website to learn more.
In case you missed it, a graphic novel illustrating Kusama’s artistic journey will be arriving soon.
