Just in Time for New Year’s: A Rainbow of Dom Pérignon – Andy Warhol’s “Iconic Colour Games” Come to Costco

Look what you can get at the Costco#144 these days – it’s Dom Pérignon sparkling wine / champagne with primary-colored boxes and labels.

I’m speechless.

(Wonder what Dead Andy Warhol could do with the soup aisle?)

Believe it’s just random chance which label color you get. No peeking!

All the deets:

“With the creation of an exclusive collection of three bottles by the Design Laboratory at Central Saint Martin’s School of Art & Design, Dom Pérignon pays tribute to Andy Warhol, creative genius and one of the most illustrious artists of the 20th century.

Andy Warhol and Dom Pérignon:
“Went to the gallery where they were having a little exhibition of the glittery Shoes, and had to do interviews and pics for the German newspaper and then we had to go back to the hotel and be picked up by the “ 2,000” people – it’s a club of twenty guys who got together and they’re going to buy 2,000 bottles of Dom Pérignon which they will put in a sealed room until the year 2,000 and then open it up and drink it and so the running joke is who will be around and who won’t…”

This is an entry from Andy Warhol’s diary on March 8th, 1981. The pope of Pop Art and a leading figure of the New York underground art scene had just returned from Munich where he had had a show, and was recounting what he had seen. He really loved this story. Not surprising. He once said that he had been to thousands of parties in his life, and in the late 1970s he liked to go to New York’s Studio 54, the wildest and most theatrical club of the period (along with Le Palace in Paris), with his friends and drink Dom Pérignon.

A Tribute to Andy Warhol by Dom Pérignon
Inspired by Warhol’s unconventional representation of icons, and the playful use of codes and colour in his work, Dom Pérignon commissioned the Design Laboratory at Central Saint Martin ’s School of Art & Design to reinterpret its timeless bottle. The result is a unique collection of three bottles, each with its distinct label in red, blue or yellow, paying homage to Warhol’s iconic colour games.
