Designer water the new wine

Wednesday, 15 December 2010

While having lunch in Paris, I ordered water and I was given a San Pellegrino branded from Missoni.
First of all, it was funny to get a designer piece for so little money.
And second, Missoni is my neighbour (yes, family home and factory are 2 blocks away), and I felt home!

Anyway, in one of my first posts, I recall publishing some pictures from a bottle of Evian designed by Paul Smith.

So, I did some research on 'water and designers' and found out that many fashion designers have adventured into the 'water' field. What's the added value to a bottle of water?
From my side, I love flowers and I love to use unique bottles instead of vases.

Neverthless, the feeling to own a designer piece. Not talking about the shape of the bottle that can be a real state-of-the-art piece of design.

In my research I have found out that the bottle of water is a also a good piece of merchandise and promotion and offers an incredible variety of personalisation.

Evian is the worldwide water brand that more then anyone collaborate with designers.
San Pellegrino and Perrier are also good examples.

Last but not least, drinking one glass of water (room temperature) as soon as you wake up in the morning will help to detox your body, flash out all impurities, help your bow to be regular, restore those water the body has lost during the sleeping, works wonder on your skin. Remember to drink water regularly during the day to keep your lovely body hidrated.

  6. Dear Ylenia,
    Well, the blog universe is very educational indeed - I had no idea this was going on in "the water world" ! Thank you for an interesting post! Got me thinking how I could possibly "pimp" some bottles with leftover wallpaper... or maybe not... ;-)

    Kind regards and Christmas greetings,
