Dom Pérignon and Iris van Herpen premiere new Dom Pérignon Metamorphosis
Dom Pérignon has always been among the first labels to come to mind at the mention of champagne.
Now, as its most celebrated vintage, the Dom Pérignon Vintage 2004, comes to an end in its first plenitude, get ready to be greeted with a new generation vintage that has risen from its end, picking up where it left off.
Collaborating with world-renowned Dutch fashion designer Iris van Herpen, Dom Pérignon is proud to premiere the newly transformed and reinvented Dom Pérignon Metamorphosis by Iris van Herpen, a vintage that is derived from the second plenitude of the Vintage 2004 – the P2.
Champagne and designer premiered the new offering at New York Fashion Week last September with limited edition made-to-order art pieces called Cocoonase in which a bottle of Dom Pérignon Vintage 2004 will be housed.
Inspired by the cocoon of a caterpillar in which the hatchling houses itself before metamorphing into a butterfly, it symbolises the transformation and reinvention of a well-loved vintage into something better on all fronts – more mature, more potent and all-around renewed.
“Cocoonase acts as a shield that protects the Dom Pérignon bottle as it prepares for its metamorphosis,” says van Herpen.
The Dom Pérignon Vintage 2004 giftbox and label of the bottle are inflected with green in all its vibrant exuberance, illustrating the organic power that is generated within the wine in the process of its transformation to P2. For the brand, the dark green colour is a reflection of the soul of the wine as well as its intensity, depth and complexity.
