Bombay Sapphire partnered with fashion designer and creative visionary Christian Siriano to create a cocktail couture collection. Renowned for his boundary-pushing designs and inclusive approach to fashion, Siriano took inspiration from iconic Bombay Sapphire gin cocktails to create a French 75-inspired haute couture gown, which took center stage at the brand's Spring/Summer 2024 NYFW show Friday at The Pierre Hotel in New York City, as well as a gin cocktail attire capsule collection to release in time for the holiday season.
Siriano's French 75-inspired gown was designed with flourishes that transmute the celebratory cocktail's zip of bubbles, tang of lemon juice, and bright notes of gin. Created from champagne-tinged accents and with Bombay Sapphire's iconic, blue-tinged bottle in mind, the gown is infused with custom Bombay Sapphire-dyed fabrics and harkens back to the color profile and effervescence of the BOMBAY French 75.
To bring the ethos of the collection to everyone and inspire people to experiment with their own creativity and style, Siriano will be releasing a limited-edition capsule collection to follow the French 75-inspired gown. Literally and figuratively embodying cocktail party couture, the capsule collection will take inspiration from three iconic gin cocktails - the Bombay Sapphire Gin & Tonic, Martini, and Collins - and be available just in time for the holiday season. The perfect gift for fashion and spirits lovers alike, the collection will be available to purchase this autumn on ChristianSiriano.com.
Marking the continuation of the Bombay Sapphire 'Saw This, Made This' campaign launched by acclaimed film director Baz Luhrmann last year, the cocktail-inspired collection is designed to push the boundaries of fashion and encourage people to see the creative inspiration that exists all around them.
"As a brand who has always championed all forms of artistic expression, we've loved working with Christian to unlock a new form of creative inspiration for his designs," said Jaime Keller, Brand Director of Bombay Sapphire. "Saw This, Made This has always been about finding new and unique points of inspiration and Christian has shown that imagination shows no limits and that visual prompts can turn into tangible, beautiful creations. With the release of this partnership, we hope that audiences will tap into their own creativity and uncover the inspiration that permeates the world around them."
