evian announces its collaboration with fashion designer Elie Saab, to create a limited edition glass bottle that is a joint celebration of both brands’ pursuit of purity in design. The partnership between evian and Elie SAAB is the latest to follow six years of evian associating itself with international fashion brands. Previous collaborative designer bottles include those by Diane von Furstenberg(for 2013), Courreges (for 2012), Issey Miyake (for 2011), Paul Smith (for 2010), Jean Paul Gaultier and Christian Lacroix (for 2009 and 2008)
And a special collection of 5 crystal evian bottles by Jean Paul Gaultier for Baccarat in 2008:
This year, the two brands unite with the common theme of purity. The bottle is decorated with a signature Elie Saab lace pattern that recalls the feminine and elegant designs featured so prominently in the brand’s collections.
The delicate white lace has been applied with architectural accuracy, bringing added refinement to the clean lines of the bottles silhouette. The final creations symbolize the immaculate craftsmanship, and mutual sophistication that both Elie Saab and evian are renowned for.
