Champagne Crocodile Chic
Despite their appearance of being slow and un-coordinated out of water, crocodiles are actually the top predators in their environment, with bodies specifically adapted for maximum self protection. Crocodiles have smooth skin on their belly and side, while their dorsal surface is ‘armoured’ skin which has scales and is thick and rugged, providing protection from attack. But did you know that this armoured skin also functions as a heat-exchanger, allowing crocodiles to rapidly raise or lower their temperature at will?
Inspired by the protective and flexible qualities of crocodile skin, for its latest piece of innovative wearable bottle art, Champagne Piper Heidsieck has released the new “BODYGUARD” bottle (30 euros). I can still remember meeting the Jean-Paul Gaultier clad Champagne Piper Heidsieck bottle during my first visit to Sydney Mardi Gras back in 1999, but this limited edition Bodyguard is far more subtle and luxurious than that provocative black and red corset by JPG!
Modelled on a real crocodile Piper Heidsieck Bodyguard second skin for your champagne presents as bright red fur and moulded latex – a snappy take on champagne fashion!
