David Lynch designs for Dom Pérignon
25th July, 2012 by Lucy Shaw
Hollywood auteur David Lynch has hooked up with Champagne house Dom Pérignon on a limited edition design for the 2003 vintage and the 2000 rosé.
Called “The Power of Creation”, the design was developed by Lynch, known for surrealist films such as Eraserhead, Blue Velvet and Mulholland Drive, and special effects expert Gary D’Amico.
The duo spent two days in a California studio working with torches, smoke machines and light rays to come up with the final design.
Lynch is the second living artist, after photographer and Chanel creative director Karl Lagerfeld, to have worked directly alongside the Champagne house.
The eccentric director has also created bespoke designs for 10 DP 2000 Jeroboams and 10 Rosé 1998 Jeroboams.
Known for his unconventional work such as the popular TV murder mystery drama Twin Peaks, Lynch admitted he likes going commercial every now and then to experiment with new technology.
Lynch launched the sinister and seductive design in LA this week with Dom Pérignon chef de cave Richard Geoffroy.
Its theatrical gift box is tied with silk ribbons at either end, which raise the curtain on the interior, filled with Lynchian chiaroscuro silhouettes.
The limited edition Power of Creation bottles will be available in the UK from mid-October, priced at £120 for Dom Pérignon 2003 and £240 for the 2000 rosé.
