It’s highly trendy in the alcohol industry to let artist designs bottles for booze.
The vodka brand ABSOLUT has been doing so for a while now and may have collected more artists than Wrhol had in his Factory. The most interesting for us fashion people is the GARETH PUGH-bottle.
The Paris-based music- and fashionlabel MAISON KITSUNÉdesigned an absinth bottle for PERNOD. It looks good.
On the beer market one holds to the classical clientelle and lets musicians design bottles. HEINEKEN’s recently got the METRONOMY band to do it, BECK’S got BLOC PARTY.
In Champagne field one stays French: MOET instructed the Paris-based night club owner and graffitti artist André Saraiva to design a botlle of rosé.
It looks like anyone might design a bottle of booze. We find it totally great but are asking ourselves: when are bloggers (us, for example) gonna be able to do that ?
It doesn’t have to be a soda bottle. A bottle of poppers would be absolutely fine for a start. We could surely present several ideas already.
Quiz-question: which fashion-blogger is unable to write a full sentence, is licking his own asshole everyday and still earns more money than you, who has an abhorred office-job (about 15.000,- Dollar per month)?
No, it is not Sami Slimani – he owns more. And it is not Jessica Weiß - she knows how to write (and does not lick her own ass, as far as we know).
It is Bodhi. And different from Sami Slimani, Bodi is a dog.
The dog earns about 15.000,- Dollar per month with fashion-blogging. And all of that, just because his owner had the world-greatest-ideam to put men’s clothes on the dog – and than had the brilliant idea, to make a blog out of it.
Fashion brands as AMERICAN APPAREL, GANT and ASOS are paying hundreds of dollars, so that Bodhi is wearing their clothes. Well, if nobody else does it (besides maybe Sami - here for example).
We are definitely picking up role-models, looking at the top-earners Bodhi and Sami and are starting to smell our own assholes again. Maybe then we are finally going to have the style and the money.
