David Lynch reveals 'The Power of Creation' Dom Perignon design





Revered Hollywood filmmaker David Lynch has unveiled his new limited-edition design for Dom Perignon.
 
The project, entitled The Power of Creation, has been created for Dom Perignon 2003 and the Rosé 2000 and was revealed on Monday night in Los Angeles, the setting for Lynch’s iconic movie Mulholland Drive, by Dom Perignon chef de cave Richard Geoffroy.
 
The designs follow Lynch’s advertising campaign for Dom Perignon last year and according to the Oscar nominated director are “a process of tuning in and then through experimentation getting something that expresses the essential nature,”.
 
 
 
In a press release, Dom Perignon suggested the collaboration with Lynch was a natural fit due to their mutual beliefs in “mystery, intensity, commitment, time, the constant reinvention of the self, and above all, absolute faith in the power of creation.”
 
Lynch took his inspiration from a series of photographs of the bottles of Dom Perignon and according to their website the subsequent creation is “the ultimate expression of a fruitful collaboration based on absolute shared trust in the power of creation”.
 
Lynch has also designed packaging for ten Dom Pérignon Vintage 2000 jeroboams and ten Dom Pérignon Rosé Vintage 1998 jeroboams.
 
The limited edition packs are available in the United Kingdom from October, with the Dom Perignon Blanc 2003 costing around £120 and the Rosé 2000, £240.
