This Thursday, October 2nd, legendary street artist Shepard Fairey will be in Toronto for the launch of the official Hennessy Very Special Limited Edition Bottle/Label Design. The creative collaboration between Hennessy and Shepard follows up successful collaborations with world-renowned artists such as Os Gemeos, KAWS, and Futura. The bottle features the iconic OBEY symbol in the centre of the label, accompanied by his popular star symbol and additional illustrative design elements. The colour palette includes gold, black, cream, red, which together happen to compliment the already existing aesthetic of the cognac.
“MY INSPIRATION FOR THIS LIMITED EDITION DESIGN WAS BASED ON THE LEGACY OF HENNESSY AS A BRAND. TO ME, HENNESSY HAS ALWAYS BEEN ABOUT QUALITY, AUTHENTICITY, TRADITION, AND ELEGANCE.” – SHEPARD FAIREY
The limited edition Hennessy V.S. x Shepard Fairey bottle is now available at participating LCBO’s across the GTA. Some locations have already sold out, so you may be on a bit of a scavenger hunt for this limited edition piece of art. For those of you who are lucky enough to purchase a bottle, feel free to get it signed by Shepard Fairey himself!
Join us on Thursday, October 2nd, from 4:30 – 5:30pm at Tattoo (567 Queen St. W) to meet Shepard Fairey. Please arrive early to guarantee entry!
