Jean Paul Gaultier Piper-Heidsieck bottle
Designer Jean Paul Gaultier has created a new design for Piper-Heidsieck’s cuvée brut champagne, to be unveiled at a dinner at the Festival de Cannes on May 13.
   It is Gaultier’s second collaboration with the champagne house, the first in 1999.
   The design has been inspired by the can-can.
   ‘This is the continuation of a beautiful story that started 12 years ago. I dressed that bottle of champagne with a red vinyl corset. I got to work with new materials and new shapes, to find new ways to express myself. I enjoyed it as it set new challenges for me,’ says Gaultier.
   ‘This time, I used Latex and fishnet tights, materials that always inspire me. It is like flesh dressed in fishnet. It is the seductive touch of the Parisian woman, but it’s also Paris canaille, Paris can-can … The red mask adds a touch of mystery and passion and leads us into a champagne universe.’
   Piper-Heidsieck is no stranger to having the designer of the day create its bottle. In 1885, Karl Fabergé created a diamond-studded bottle and introduced the champagne to Russia. Christian Louboutin and Viktor & Rolf have also created bottles for the house in recent years.
   Marilyn Monroe declared that she wore Chanel No. 5 when she went to sleep, but drank Piper-Heidsieck when she woke up.
