Hennessy, the number one selling Cognac in the world teamed up with world-renowned artist, KAWS to create its limited edition V.S. Bottle. The new bottle is expected to be released in September 2011.
Each Hennessy & KAWS V.S Bottle is adorned with signature KAWS artwork and is individually numbered. The bottle features not only the iconic XX (they will be placed on the seal below the neck) and white teeth (they are on the cap), but also a vibrant abstract imagery in blue, red and green colours.
I admire the Hennessy brand and from the start, felt strongly about working on this project, said KAWS. Hennessy invited me to Cognac where I was able to experience and gain a full understanding of the steps and processes behind Hennessy’s craftsmanship, which in turn, inspired the artwork I created for the bottle.
The Hennessy KAWS V.S bottle will be sold nationwide in 750ml sizes and will retail for $29,99 and has a limited run of 420,000. The new bottle design will debut later in July at a private launch event in New York City. [Luxuo]
