Jeff Koons and Dom Pérignon celebrated the global debut of their limited edition collaboration with a private celebration at the Stephan Weiss Studios last night in New York City. Guests enjoyed an exclusive unveiling of the Koons-designed Dom Pérignon Rosé Vintage 2003 and Blanc Vintage 2004 Limited Edition Gift Boxes, plus the “Balloon Venus for Dom Pérignon,” a limited edition bottle holder inspired by Koons’ original Balloon Venus sculpture.
“Its colour is deep, with light amber and copper tints. The wine’s bouquet erupts theatrically from its silken fleshy body, just as the sculpture’s reflective surface envelop the viewing in a dynamic invitation to tasting,” the champagne brand explained about the newly released rosé.
Notable attendees included Eve, Alan Cumming, Cynthia Rowley, Mia Moretti, Carmelo Anthony, Martha Stewart, Donna Karan, Jeffrey Deitch, Henrik Lundqvist, Kyle MacLachlan, Ted Allen, Genevieve Jones, Carlos Souza, Ghislaine Maxwell, Olivier van Themsche, Hanneli Rupert, Matthew Mellon, Crystal Renn, Nicolas Mirzayantz, Michael Avedon, Annelise Peterson, Leo Villareal & Yvonne Force Villareal, Maya Lin, Todd Eberle, Richard Pandiscio, Casey Fremont Crowe & Brandon Crowe, Lauren Remington Platt, David Barton, Casey Neistat, Carlos Mota, Julie Henderson, John McDonald, James Houston, Lorenzo Martone, Sante D’Orazio, Zani Gugelmann, Andres Serrano, Alexia Niedzielski, Anouck Lepere, Annabelle Dexter-Jones, Olivier Zahm, Andre Saraiva, Diana Widmaier-Picasso and Gucci Westman.
