V.S Limited Edition by Felipe Pantone & Hennessy
The latest installment of Hennessy‘s V.S Limited Edition series was designed in partnership with futurist artist, Felipe Pantone. Using his bold graphics and style, Pantone was able to design a bottle, unlike anything we’ve seen before; creating a truly limited edition piece worthy of any collector’s shelves.
“My work is informed by the past, but it’s totally contemporary. I like to transcend time through an unexpected experience that you can only have through art. Whether it’s in art or in cognac-making, you need to appreciate the past.”
– Felipe Pantone
V.S Limited Edition Collaboration
Part 1: Unveiling the Remix
What do you get when pairing a visionary artist with a cognac brand such as Hennessy? The V.S Limited Edition, that’s what.
Part 2: The Vision of Felipe Pantone
Felipe Pantone’s art blends what a digitized future would look like mixed with an analog past.
Part 3: The Collab
Felipe Pantone found his inspiration for the collaboration by digging through Hennessy’s archives and finding their old labels and advertisements, antique bottles and packaging, and three-star motif once used by Maurice Hennessy. He then merged everything with a few of his known designs, like the lightning bottle, resulting in the piece of original artwork you see below.
