Vera Wang and Chopin Vodka Make U.S History With New Collab

Fashion mogul Vera Wang has teamed up with Polish brand Chopin Vodka to produce a limited bottling labelled as “the first vodka-fashion collaboration ever to launch in the U.S”.

Vodka is apparently the designer’s tipple of choice and personally selected a special variety of young potato for Vera Wang x Chopin.

The potatoes used for the product are sustainably grown and sourced without chemicals or pesticides in the village of Krzesk, Poland, where the Chopin Vodka distillery is located.

The resulting spirit is described as “unlike any other product available to date.”

Working with Chopin Vodka was one of the most educational, fascinating and collaborative experiences I’ve ever had, learning how vodka is made and the various nuances of taste and texture. I am so grateful for the opportunity to co-create a spirit I adore so much, with such a storied and respected distiller. It is the culmination of my long love affair with vodka in the most personal and expressive way.

As a clothing designer, Wang knows what’s on the outside can be as important as what’s on the inside, so she was also involved in designing the one-liter bottles, choosing what Chopin calls “a modern, architectural, and sophisticated iteration that is guaranteed to stand out on any bar.”

The bi-color bottle even features a poem on the back—an ‘ode’ to Wang’s unique and highly personal relationship with vodka: how it makes her feel, the memories it evokes, and the emotion, sensuality, and romance vodka represents to her.

The bottles will be available for pre-order exclusively on starting on March 8 before hitting “select retailers” nationwide for a suggested retail price of $99.
