Prabal Gurung’s Champagne Dreams

French Champagne house Perrier-Jouët refers to its cuvées or vintages in fashion lingo, comparing them to silk lace and citing their floral and intricate style. It should come as no surprise then that Perrier-Jouët tapped Prabal Gurung to design Champagne flutes, the first in a series of designer collaborations. The bubbly will be served at tonight’s CFDA Fashion Awards at the Brooklyn Museum in Gurung’s flutes.
Perrier-Jouët in 1902 became associated with Art Nouveau when a swirl of Japanese anemone were engraved on a bottle. Gurung, who said the brand’s bottles “look like works of art,” rendered the delicate anemone flower in his bold hues, infusing the design with new energy.
The designer said he was inspired by the beauty and elegance of Perrier-Jouët’s signature flower. “We wanted to bring our brand ideal — that we’re stronger in color — to the design, so we juxtaposed our bright-hued floral with the delicate Perrier-Jouët anemone to celebrate who we both are and what we stand for together. The colors are a metaphor for our inclusive ethos and represent the way I want the world to look.
“Flowers have always been my favorite print to design with,” Gurung said. “They’re beautiful and highlight the strength

Elwood House: Must-Do listMonday Meet up with Kate and Amber to finalise Amber’s weddingdo NOT let Kate talk you into fuchsia or satinwalk away from the satin. Decide on classical music pieces for the bathrooms. Be ready to fend off that very persistent new wine merchant. Stay in for the garden centre delivery of the spiral box trees for the front porch. ‘Snow. I am going to need lots of snow. And tiny white fairy lights sparkling in the trees and over the pergola. Can you do fairy lights?’ Amber’s voice tailed off into a dreamy whisper. ‘It would be so magical and romantic.’ Saskia Elwood rolled her eyes and grinned at her best friend Amber, then clicked in the box next to the garden lighting option on her wedding planner spreadsheet. ‘Of course I can do white fairy lights. As for the snow? That shouldn’t be too difficult for New Year’s Day in London. But, you know me, if you want it to snow on your wedding day, then snow you shall have, even if I have to track down a snow gun machine and make you some. Although Won’t it be a bit cold? From the designs I have seen, that dress Kate is making for you would be perfect for a tropical beach weddingbut London in January? Brr’ Amber giggled and flicked her long straight blonde hair over one shoulder in a move she had perfected in fashion shoots and as years performing as a concert pianist. ‘I know,’ she replied, wrinkling up her nose in delight. ‘It is so perfect. Sam is going to love it.’ Then she sighed out loud and strolled out past Saskia and through the conservatory into the garden with a faraway expression on her face. ‘Just love it.’ ‘She’s off again,’ a cheery voice sounded from behind Saskia’s shoulder as Kate Lovat bounced into the room with a bundle of wedding magazines in her arms. ‘Dreaming of the fabulous Sam. If I wasn’t so smitten with my Heath I would find it a bit sickening. In fact, sometimes I’m surprised you put up with the two of us. Always talking about the lucky men who we have agreed to marry one day.’ ‘Right now,’ Saskia replied with a snort, ‘I am more worried about Amber getting frostbite in that skimpy, mostly backless dress you are planning for a winter wedding. Any chance of a jacket? Thermal vest? The poor girl is going to be blue, which is not a good look for any bride.’ Kate replied by playfully hitting Saskia on the head with a rolled up bridal magazine and sat down next to her at the conservatory table. ‘Blue? With that fabulous suntan? No chance.’ Then she relaxed and rested her elbows on the table. ‘Relax. There is a beautiful full-length quilted ivory coat to go on top of that slinky dress for any outdoor photos. Fear not. The girl shall not freeze. When the dancing starts she will be glad of that layered silk gown, even if the beads will be flying everywhere.’ Kate arched her eyebrows and peered at Saskia’s computer screen, her green eyes bright with amusement. ‘Does that say dinner and reception for twenty-six?

A Year in Champagne TV SPOT – Now on iTunes (2015) – Documentary HD

With renowned wine importer Martine Saunier as our guide, A YEAR IN CHAMPAGNE provides a rare glimpse behind the scenes into the real champagne through six houses, from small independent makers like Champagne Saint-Chamant, where each and every bottle is still turned by hand in the cellars, to the illustrious houses of Gosset and Bollinger, which have been instrumental in shaping the image of champagne around the world.

Champagne Was Created By Accident, And We Have Mother Nature To Thank

Champagne is a tongue-tingling symbol of celebration, extravagance and class. Poppin’ bottles is an exclusive activity reserved for blinged-out rappers, dripping in diamonds and costly furs, well-paid athletes who’ve won it big and the general elite. (Marilyn Monroe allegedly bathed in a tub filled with 350 bottles of the bubbly drink.)

But the drink wasn’t always the crème de la crème. Just as lobster was once regarded as a poor man’s food, Champagne was considered a result of careless winemaking. In the 1400s, capricious temperature changes in Europe infringed on the fermentation process. “The cold temporarily halted fermentation, the process by which wine is made,” Marina Koren writes in Smithsonian Magazine. “When spring arrived with warmer temperatures, the budding spirits began to ferment again. This produced an excess of carbon dioxide inside wine bottles, giving the liquid inside a fizzy quality.”

The weather-induced effervescence was initially met with disdain. Bottles of the accidental bubbly would continuously explode and the flawed drink was deemed unacceptable by many. But in the same way lobster came to be a divine delicacy, the twice-fermented wine transformed from a spoiled drink into a luxurious libation.

By the end of the 17th century, a monk named Dom Pierre Pérignon (sound familiar?) was asked to fine-tune the drink, and make it even more enriched with bubbles. (These days, champagne contains approximately one million bubbles per glass.) Though Pérignon was not the only one focused on the drink, he is often cited as Champagne’s creator. This could explain why Dom Pérignon-branded Champagne starts at upwards of $ 100. But really, we owe our appreciation to the weather fluke.

Take Champagne’s story as an inspiration. This year, as you clink and toast with a glass that hisses and pops, remember that the best things in life can’t always be planned, and that some accidents are actually miracles. Cheers to you, Champagne.

Champagne, the Golden Globe Awards and Idiot Shenanigans

During my 20-plus years on television, I’ve witnessed my fair share of industry shenanigans, many I can’t repeat. The movie ads touting Golden Globe Awards winners, even though the winners have yet to be handed out, fall under the “idiot shenanigan” category.

Look, I’m all for a good shenanigan. But this is like a kid telling his parents he got the lead in the school play when he really just made the first cut. It’s silly. It’s wrong. It’s deceptive and laughable.

Here’s what happened. There are two good movies, Philomena and August: Osage County, which received multiple Golden Globe nominations. However, ads suddenly appeared with the words WINNER and JULIA ROBERTS next to Roberts’ face in an ad for August: Osage County — not to mention WINNER, BEST ACTRESS and MERYL STREEP next to Streep’s picture. Philomena did the same thing with Judi Dench’s Best Actress Drama nomination by sliding in the word WINNER. There is just one problem: The Golden Globe Awards show is weeks away. So, clearly no winners have been announced.

When I saw the ads on TV, I thought, “What? The studios are not stooping to that level, are they?”

I quickly paused my DVR, hit rewind to the beginning of the ad and pressed play. Oh yeah, there is some serious stooping here. In fact, I had to squint to see the words nomination and nominee, because they were dwarfed by the word WINNER.

I figured the Hollywood Foreign Press Association would have something to say about this since the Golden Globe Awards is its baby. I’ve worked with the HFPA since the late 1990s when I was on Access Hollywood and always found them quick to react to a situation. On occasion, I’d question their reaction and some were indeed head scratchers, but they usually had a fairly quick response to a situation. They reacted quickly.

According to a number of sources, HFPA President Theo Kingma sent a warning letter to various studios, public relations firms and campaigners that it is unacceptable to use the word WINNER in ads touting Golden Globe Awards nominations for their films.

But here is the rub. This is, in part (a very small part), HFPA’s fault. You would never see this leading up to the Oscars, because the Academy prohibits this kind of wording in Oscar advertisements. The Academy dictates and controls, often to a fault, every single aspect of the Oscars. The HFPA not so much. Think of the HFPA/Golden Globe Awards as the uptight Academy’s hip, cool and fun cousin.

I have chatted with nearly every nominated major star over the years on the red carpet and they prefer the atmosphere of the Golden Globe Awards to the Oscars. Don’t get me wrong, they’d rather have an Oscar if they had to choose, but the Golden Globe Awards are loose, they serve you dinner and hand you champagne as you walk into the ballroom. I’m going to that cousin’s house for Christmas dinner.

Once inside, the stars mill about their tables, catch-up with other stars and actually meet some of them for the first time. We often think that all the stars must know each other, but often times I’ve found that they don’t and are eager to meet someone whose work they admire. It was always fun for me to see the interaction before the show and during the commercial breaks. This was especially so as the show ran into it’s second and third hours and the alcohol started to kick in. Juxtapose that with everyone at the Oscars sitting in rows of seats and nervous as all get-out because, well, it’s the Oscars!

Look, I get the studios’ motivation for touting nominations and pushing the envelope in these ads. It’s money. There is a good breakdown on BoxOfficeMojo.com showing a significant boost in box office revenue once a film is Oscar nominated. So, it stands to reason studios would try the WINNER route with the Golden Globe nominations to juice the box office.

I say keep the champagne, continue the fun of the Golden Globe Awards but check the ad shenanigans at the door.
