Drink it in
In terms of life’s simplest pleasures, clothes and cognac surely have to be up there as two of the best. The two go hand in their indulgence of style and substance (literally), making the forthcoming collaboration between Daniel w. Fletcher and Courvoisier, all the more fitting.
A meeting of minds that isn’t afraid to get a little hazy, the pair have concocted a tactile release that breathes new life into the cognac house’s VSOP (very superior old pale) with as much spirit as one can muster. As per their new design, each of the 200 bottles in this limited run has been decorated and hand-numbered by the designer individually, with a colourful slew of chunky brushstrokes that would look more than fetching perched on your drinks cabinet.
The release also boasts a capsule collection with a few vibrant prints you might recognise from Fletcher’s electrifying LFW runway back in February, crafted in ode to his late father. The collection blended decades-old sportswear staples with the rock-n-roll power-dressing of the seventies, which Fletcher has developed further in a range of painted denim jackets, jeans, silk shirts, sweatshirts, and relaxed tees available at Harrods and his own web store.
“I believe that joy is best expressed through whatever medium you feel the most passionate about – for me, this is design, and, more specifically for this partnership, the art of painting,” said Fletcher of the partnership. “I used these positive feelings to inspire my design for the limited-edition bottle and apparel collection, using my signature playful brushstroke, to bring joy to others, too”.
The Courvoisier x Daniel w. Fletcher VSOP bottles, jacket, shirt and jeans set will be available in a limited edition run both in-store and online at Harrods from 28th April 2022 – and the sweatshirt and t-shirt from danielwfletcher.com.
