I know to some of you all it's just a water bottle but it's one that made me do a double take today at Whole Foods. Evian has partnered with designer Christian Lacroix to create this beautifully designed glass water bottle with white snowflakes. Sure it's crazy expensive at $13.95 but you got to give to Evian for making water drop dead gorgeous. Pret-a-Porter
CL: “It seems that evian natural spring water has been there all my life. I remember the curly label of my childhood (were they arabesques, elaborate columns?) in the hotels of the lake where our family used to spend holidays. They came the streamlined graphics, like a futuristic and timeless dress of the Sixties, and the small bottles you could find all over the world, the design bottles, collected every winter of that millennium. Life a foretelling. It is therefor an amused and rather proud old friend that I designed these 2007-2008 bottles. Draping one with the flowers of success, those that adorn the ‘paseo’ parade capes, like snowy crystal garlands or frost-frozen alpine flowers. Giving the other the silhouette of a princess, a goddess or a mythical creature, a sort of snow fairy in couture garb, crowned with flowers, bejewelled with crystals, “wearing” the familiar range of jagged peaks and ridges, like the flounces of a crinoline.”
And then, of course, if you want to get absolutely crazy, you can always get Haute Couture. There are just 99 bottles of haute couture, which will be distributed worldwide and auctioned off for charity. The starting bid for the limited edition haute couture bottle is US $1,000. Yowza.
