Initiatives Veuve Clicquot La Grande Dame 2012, Yayoi Kusama
Champagne bubbles, polka dot style. This new and exclusive Veuve Clicquot bottle brings together two ‘grand dames’ to create the art of good living: the pioneering Madame Clicquot – the first woman to run a champagne house – and the incomparable Japanese contemporary artist Yayoi Kusama, known world-over for her unique designs. This collaboration has its roots in 2006, when Kusama reimagined a traditional painting of Madame Clicquot. This limited-edition design unites their creative vision together once more for a bottle that sparkles with renewed effervescence. Didier Mariotti, the house’s Cellar Master has described it as ‘playful, lively, laughing’: we can already hear the sound of corks popping.
