I was pleasantly surprised to be informed recently that I’d won, from Wallpaper, a copy of the collaborative project between Dom Pérignon and Karl Lagerfeld. Dom Pérignon’s Oenotheque Vintage is produced ‘once in a generation’, as Wallpaper says. To celebrate, Karl Lagerfeld, much revered in the fashion world (especially for his designs for (sigh!) Chanel), collaborated with his muse Amanda Härlech to produce ‘Visions & A Decision’, a photographic Wildean tale of ‘an old money Dom Pérignon heir on the hunt for the perfect woman’. Brad Koenig and supermodel Claudia Schiffer feature, and all in all it is a lovely addition to my slowly-growing collection of coffee-table books.
If you’re interested in seeing a behind-the-scenes video of the making of the book (yes, I really like back stories), here it is.
