For a few years now, Coca Cola collaborates with fashion & Haute Couture designers to dress its bottle in a fashion way.
Coca Cola succeeded to appeal the most talented artistic directors of the bigger fashion & Haute Couture Maisons. They participated in the game and designed the most famous bottle worldwide according to their artistic inspirations with humour, elegance & chic. The Coca Cola Light bottle had never been so Luxurious !
I will refresh your memory. In 2008, it is Sonia Rykiel who customized the bottle with black, orange, yellow and pink stripes, symbol of the Maison.
In 2011, it is the turn of Karl Lagerfeld to assure this Luxury transformation. This is, by the way, his second collaboration with the brand.
Jean Paul Gaultier is indisputably THE Coca Cola designer with its three collaborations to his credit. We love those designs below that recalls perfectly the Jean Paul Gaultier universe with the marinière and the woman corset…
Of course, there were others numerous collaborations with Roberto Cavali, Marni, Missoni, Moschino, Versace, Alberta Ferreti, BlueMarine, Fendi etc.
The latest one who collaborated with Coca Cola was the famous american designer – and sexy – Marc Jacobs. Its designs are funny, of-the-wall & commited : he wanted to pay tribute to women emancipation through the 80s, 90s & 2000s…
When we see all that wonderful and classy bottles, we don’t want to open it ! It becomes a real piece of art…
Despite the rain, the 66th Cannes Film Festival was glamour, chic and beauty was still there. All stars on the red carpet were wearing magnificent haute-couture dresses: Dior, Chanel, Valentino, Balmain, Armani etc. but indisputably, this is Elie Saab that win the palme d’or !
Elie Saab was everywhere on the red carpet. All the creations of the most glamourous and elegant libanese couture brand were absolutely sunning and breath-taking: flakes, immaculate flimsy fabric and games of transparency… all the ingredients were there to create a chic atmosphere.
But who is Elie Saab? Elie Saab is a very talented libanese fashion designer born in Beyrouth. Thanks to its creativity and the elaboration of magnificent and delicate creations, Elie Saab became member of the Chambre Syndicale de la Haute Couture that means that the brand became officially a Haute Couture Maison in 2003.
The Elie Saab style is a mix of Western & Easter cultures and libanese way of life with modern architecture and design. Elie Saab uses in his creations noble, flimsy and fine materials (taffeta, organza, satin, muslin, lace etc.).
At Epykomène, we fall in love with the designer and his creations… We secretly dream about wearing one of those wonderful dresses…!
The French brand Céline had been created in 1945 by Céline Vipiana. At the origins, the Maison was called “Céline, le bottier pour enfants”, specialized in custom-made shoes for kids giving them a dandy & trendy style. She set up boutiques in Paris, in rue Faubourg Saint Honoré and in 1960, the brand diversified & launched leather bag collections: many women are seduced.
A few years later, she decided to create a perfume & launched her first ready-to-wear collection and that was a major success, an other time.
At this time, the brand continued to rise all around the world exporting her products in foreign countries as Switzerland, Italy, Japan, Corea etc.
Today, Céline is in the most Luxury famous group all around the world : LVMH. The brand had very talented artistic director giving it a chic, feminine & modern style for women deeply rooted in their time.
Céline is well known for its wonderful leather bags. When the brand launched a new bag, it is immediately a success and it has the “it bag” status ! Who doesn’t know the iconic bag “Luggage” or the wonderful “Phantom” one? Or the chic “Trapèze” model? All stars well known all around the world wear Céline bags: Blake lively & Leighton Meester heroines of Gossip Girl, Jennifer Aniston, Gwyneth Paltrow, Rihanna… they don’t wanna leave their Céline bag !
Just keep in mind that it would be a great present idea to me… 😉
