David Lynch toasts Dom Pérignon with a new bottle design

Film director David Lynch, known for his offbeat and darkly comic films, such as Blue Velvet, has redesigned the classic Dom Pérignon champagne bottle. Not surprisingly, his signed, limited editions of Dom Pérignon 2003 and Rosé 2003, called the “Power of Creation,”  have been described as “dark, rich and hallucinatory.”

According to the Dom Pérignon site: “Dom Pérignon and David Lynch is an encounter between two worlds that have total faith in the power of creation. David Lynch, working in a California studio transformed into a darkroom, spent two days taking an impressive on-site voyage around the timeless Dom Pérignon bottle. Letting his imagination take flight, he invented stories, created sets and cobbled together strange theatrical machinery. He then conducted lots of experiments and took many, many photos.” From these images were selected the two bottle designs.

  1. [...] David Lynch recently caused a stir with a coffee commercial. Now, he's moving on to stronger stuff, Dom Pérignon, by designed some special, limited-edition labels for the champagne. Lynch spent two days in a darkroom in California photographing the original Dom Pérignon and Dom Pérignon Rosé bottles with all sorts of funky lighting around them—then designed the labels off those photos. Thus, they have a ghostly luminescence to them—classy but with the undercurrent of unease for which the director is famous. "The worlds of Dom Pérignon and the one of David Lynch have many points in common: mystery, intensity, commitment, time, the constant reinvention of the self, and above all, absolute faith in the power of creation," the brand says on its website. More images, and some videos, after the jump. Via Applied Arts. [...]
