In a week of collaborations, we never expected to announce this fascinating concotion. Dom Perignon is launching a limited edition of its 2003 vintage with a helping hand from visual legend David Lynch. Mr Lynch has reinvented the traditional look of the Dom Perignon bottle with an extraterrestrial glamour, suspending some darker, scintillating secrets within. A palette of "mineralised verticality that gradually opens to suggest a bitter, iodised and saline nobility," contrasting the "candied fruit, plant life and exquisite camphor leaf freshness." Certainly Mr Lynch and Dom Perignon make for mysterious drinking buddies.
Golf and great denim... together? That's the case with AG Adriano Goldschmied and Travis Matthew in a new line of jeans. Based on the existing silhouette of AG's 'Protege' style, the range is comfortable and stylish, making them an easy wear during a putt or on the town.
"Functional, stylish and timeless" is how Cuan Hanly of Jack Spade describes the label's collaboration with Barbour. In the new capsule collection, Barbour's classic wax jackets have been revamped alongside four styles of bags, including Jack Spade's signature messenger. Jack Spade is the latest label to collaborate with Barbour after recent projects with Temperley London and Anya Hindmarch, and certainly seems appropriate that the line is timeless.
Just in time for the racing season, Italian tailoring house Ermenegildo Zegna has dropped its latest runway collection into stores. It may European fall/winter, but the Australian buy features many lighter, more trans-seasonal pieces from the collection, including high quality suits, shirts and accessories. Zegna's love for Australia is widely known, given its support and patronage of the Australian wool industry, so it makes sense that the house should focus its energies on what is largely regarded as an Australian pastime.
