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.
