The House of Champagne Perrier-Jouët and leading milliner Stephen Jones have collaborated to create the ultimate luxury accessory of the season: a personalised limited-edition leather hatbox and matching designer hat, exclusively available at Harrods.
One of just 8 individual collector’s items available in the UK, the hatbox is a work of art in itself - handmade by Italian craftsmen using white leather, natural green silk and gold thread.
Filled with luxury Belle Epoque champagne accessories, it represents the ultimate travelling case for footloose champagne lovers, containing a Christofle silver ice bucket designed for Perrier-Jouët, two hand-blown anemone flutes and a bottle of Belle Epoque 1999, the house’s famous prestige cuvée renowned for its Grand Cru chardonnay-driven elegance and charm.
Britain’s own Stephen Jones has designed an original anemone creation to complement the hatbox, inspired by Belle Epoque’s iconic bottle design. As a strictly limited piece his stunning hat is a must-have accessory for this year’s summer season. Stephen is a world famous master of his craft and was the obvious choice for the “Outstanding Achievement Award” at the British Fashion Awards 2008.
Founded in 1811, The House of Perrier-Jouët has long been associated with the creative arts, perhaps most famously in 1902, when Art Nouveau protagonist Emile Gallé created the eye-catching enameled anemone bottle for Cuvée Belle Epoque.
The items retail together at GBP5,000 and are available from May - August exclusively through Harrods ‘By Appointment’ and the Harrods wine shop. For purchase details please speak to Harrods Wine Shop on +44(0)20-7893-8777 or visit them on the Lower Ground Floor of Harrods.
