THE ESSENCE OF “ASSEMBLAGE”: THE CIRCLE
Kravitz’s long-standing relationship with Dom Pérignon originates from his friendship with the Maison and through a journey of memorable creative exchanges, a shared love for creativity, passion and audacity. Over the years, Dom Pérignon has explored affinities with creative talents who inspire and influence. A tireless artist, Lenny Kravitz’s quest for continual reinvention transcends the frontiers of disciplines, cultures and generations, whether in music, photography, design or cinema.
As his first project as Creative Director for Dom Pérignon, Kravitz assembled a group of exceptional people, from different worlds, disciplines and generations, capturing fleeting and intimate moments between friends whilst enjoying Dom Pérignon. The result is an artistic project that revives the concept of a circle of exceptional people, who come together for the joy of being with one another, where ideas are inspired and take shape, and where images of fun and celebration define the moment. This iconic group of personalities include: actor Harvey Keitel, choreographer Benjamin Millepied in addition to Zoë Kravitz, Susan Sarandon, Abbey Lee, Hidetoshi Nakata and Alexander Wang.
DOM PÉRIGNON x LENNY KRAVITZ: AN INSPIRED COLLABORATION
Lenny Kravitz’s designs are an invitation for people to come together. For Dom Pérignon he has crafted a limited-edition bottle, a candelabra box and a table-bar, elevating champagne tasting to a ritual, also showcased during the evening.
The iconic Dom Pérignon label is elevated by borrowing from the craft of goldsmiths to work hammered metal on the surface of the shield, creating a patina that lends the metal an inalterable contemporary vibe. Limited editions of the Vintage 2008 and Rosé Vintage 2006 will be released with this exceptional shield.
Lenny Kravitz has also created a box for the Vintage 2008 magnum that transforms into a candelabra to complete the Dom Pérignon ritual and heighten the moment. Inspired by snakeskin, the texture of the box and the grapevines engraved around the label of the bottle reveal the creative hand of an artist engaged with naturalist elements.
The masterpiece of the collection is a table-champagne bar. The sleek design sparks desire and invites a sensual transformation. The black lacquer table with brushed brass trim unfolds to reveal bottles of Dom Pérignon, glasses, and an ice bucket in the center. Design is a source of emotion, continuing a story written with each tasting.
