Perrier-Jouët Collection by Claire Coles

The year-end and Valentine season will be particularly decorative this year for Champagne House Perrier-Jouët, with the unveiling of the Perrier-Jouët Collection by Claire Coles, an elegant series of limited editions, created by the British textile designer.

Perrier-Jouët pursues its artistic collaborations with the young London artist Claire Coles, in creating two bespoke embroidered designs to echo both the House style and the individual personality of its Grand Brut and prestigious Belle Epoque cuvees.

Using fragments of vintage wallpapers, fabrics and luxurious threads, Coles produces layered botanical collages and creates beautiful handmade artworks, transforming simple fabrics into true works of art.

Using nature as a source of inspiration, the artist applied her own interpretation of Perrier-Jouët’s Art Nouveau philosophy with a Je ne sais quoi touch of haute-couture to a limited number of bottles.

Claire Coles explains: “Inspired by Perrier-Jouët’s artistic heritage and the great variety of its wines’ aromas, she created themed designs that capture each champagne’s individual character; the House’s style theme – lively and fresh for Grand Brut, and the delicate floral theme for Belle Epoque”.

The Perrier-Jouët Collection by Claire Coles includes:

  • Exclusive Belle Epoque case containing the prestigious cuvee of the House and the two iconic anemone designed flutes.
  • New gift box for Grand Brut, calling to mind the Art Nouveau heritage of the House with Coles’ elegant designs.

The limited edition Belle Epoque and Grad Brut gift packs are available for £156 and £38.49 respectively from Harrods, Harvey Nichols and Selfridges.

(The Grand Brut gift box will also be available from selected Waitrose stores).
