Cimon and his Swarovski encrusted Lego may be making creative waves world over. But the artist is already set to see yet another release, that too of charitable quality. Cimon Art has joined hands with champagne house Perrier-Jouët to support Make-A-Wish Metro and Western New York. And the Australian artist has created four unique Swarovski enhanced bottles of champagne specifically for this year’s A Toast to Wishes event.
Three 750ml bottles of Perrier-Jouët’s Belle Epoque and one 1.5 liter bottle of Belle Epoque Blanc de Blancs have been decorated by the creative genius who also sparked a bidding war last year during his first stint with the luxury champagne makers. The 750ml bottles have been adorned with crystals in clear white and various shades of gold, colors that are part of the event’s theme. While the 1.5 liter Belle Epoque Blanc de Blancs, which comes in a wooden case, has been decorated using special iridescent Swarovski crystals. Even the faces of the wooden case feature gorgeous crystallized representations of the famous anemone design, that change color from purple to red to orange and from blue to green.
In honor of the occasion and for the generosity of each sponsor’s support for the event, each bottle’s back reads “MAKE A WISH 11-21-13.” The four bottles will be presented to the most charitable sponsors, to benefit children with life-threatening medical conditions at the charity event being held today at Marquee NYC.
