Absolut has launched a limited edition bottle with a design from Jamie Hewlett. As is the norm, Absolut continues to enthrall us with funky designs such as the pinstripe edition and the Absolut Svea. These bottles are perfect for being showcased at your home bar and the limited edition tag never hurts when used for a gift.
Designer Jamie Hewlett has used his chance of being features on a Absolut bottle by creating a special London theme. The bottle which reminded me of Oliver Twist’s London is basically supposed to showcase the style of the past 200 years of history of London. This means famous buildings such as St. Paul’s Cathedral make for the backdrop while seven different characters grace the front. The characters are supposed to represent a category of people that you would most likely have run into in London over the past two centuries. these include an 18th century dandy, a pinstripe suit dressed gentleman along with a girl in a look that was famous in the 1960s as well as the ‘punk’ sort of dressing that is seen today.
The Absolut London edition will go on sale at Selfridges and Harvey Nichols in the city on March 1 (retailing at £20.99).
