Sneak Peek: David Lynch for Dom Perignon
The acclaimed filmmaker fêtes his soon-to-be-released bottle designs with star-studded party.
June 26, 2012
Limited-edition Dom Pérignon bottles designed by filmmaker David Lynch debuted last week with a celebration fit for a summer blockbuster. Over 1,000 guests including Thomas Jane, Jessica Szohr, Werner Herzog, Kelly Osborne, Liz Goldwyn, and Fran Drescher came to view Lynch’s re-creation of the Dom Pérignon 2003 and Dom Pérignon Rose 2000 bottles, transformations first seen in its December 2011 advertising campaign.
As with his films, the Mulholland Drive director immersed himself in the creative process, spending hours in a California studio-turned-darkroom to create silhouettes that depict his signature dark, mysterious, and sensual style. Marbled with touches of granite and glittering flecks of mica, the bottles’ metallic shield comes in two different patinas—bronze for Dom Pérignon and purple for Dom Pérignon rose.
The party’s Milk Studios location also hinted to Lynch’s dark side. Transformed into a labyrinth lair, the warehouse space provided the ideal backdrop to house the 10-foot-tall paintings of the Lynch-designed bottles, laser light display, misty, fog-filled air, and a stage where rock band, The Kills, performed a live show. Packed in two gift boxes, Dom Perignon by David Lynch will be available at fine wine shops in October.
