Special edition bottle combines food and style, symbolizing Italian excellence
TOWNSHIP OF PUSLINCH, Ontario – S. Pellegrino has collaborated with iconic fashion magazine Vogue Italia to launch a special edition bottle honouring the publication’s style leadership.
The new special limited edition, 750ml. bottle has been created to celebrate the extraordinary worldwide partnership of S. Pellegrino Sparkling Natural Mineral Water and Vogue Italia -- two leading ambassadors of the Italian style and art of living. It features new illustrations that fuse the disciplines of fashion and cuisine, as well as commemorative text on the bottleneck label.
Earlier this year, S. Pellegrino collaborated with Vogue Italia on Young Chef 2015 -- its global search for the best young chef under 30. Each of the 20 finalist chefs in the competition partnered with an emerging stylist from their country who worked to create a fashion statement inspired by the chef’s signature dish.
“The limited edition bottle has been created to celebrate the worldwide partnership between the two leading ambassadors of Italian style and art of living – Vogue Italia and S.Pellegrino,” explained Jennifer Semley Robert, Marketing Manager, Premium Brands, Nestlé Waters Canada. “Together with the highly renowned and influential magazine, a true worldwide fashion icon, the water symbol of fine dining collaborated on Young Chef 2015, a unique project combining Italian food and style -- two undisputed symbols of Italian excellence.”
Available for a limited time only at fine dining restaurants across Canada, S. Pellegrino will be available in a special edition, 100% recyclable, 750ml glass bottle with a specially-designed label dedicated to Vogue Italia.
