Fashion v. Wine

By Corney & Barrow

Hey all you fashionistas. London Fashion Week is here!

Fashion is not just about clothes. Like the great Coco Channel said –

 

We totally agree. And in celebration, we’ve matched a selection of our designer Own Label wines to some of our favourite style icons over the years. Wine, like fashion, will change over time, and we consider it a pleasure to find and create new styles to enjoy year after year.

 

Elizabeth Taylor & Rioja Crianza

Elizabeth Taylor radiated confidence. Her fashion was always the height of glitz and glamour and her personality attracted and impressed the boldest of men. Our Rioja Crianza matches her perfectly – garnet in colour (like her lips), with rich, full dark fruit flavours and a hint of warm spice.

 

 

Diana Ross & White Burgundy

With her extravagant wigs, bold eye make-up and sparkly decadent costumes, Miss Ross took Motown fashion by storm. Our characterful yet elegant White Burgundy is the perfect fit. Exotic but approachable, with tropical flavours, creamy textures and a persistent lime finish, this is a wine that will make you want to dance!

 

Grace Kelly & Sauternes

Classic, beautiful and feminine, Grace Kelly defines sophistication, and well, grace! Her style ticks all the boxes, just like our Sauternes 2012 – a perfect balance of luxuriant ripe fruit and fresh upbeat acidity. Poised, elegant, sensual and really rather lovely.

 

 

Marilyn Monroe & Sparkling Blanc de Blancs

No-one sparkled on screen like Marilyn. Radiating fun, her soft voice and girlish wiles matched killer curves to simply ooze sex appeal. The crisp apple and light brioche notes of our traditional method Blanc de Blancs may seem delicate, but will be sure to give you a pleasant tingle.

 

 

Anna Wintour & Company Reserve Claret

No-one has stood the test of time in the world of modern fashion quite like the remarkable Anna Wintour. An elegant, yet strong presence, this is a style icon you can rely on. We feel the same about our Company Reserve Claret – richly structured, and so good we’ve put our name on it, twice!

 

 

Audrey Hepburn & Blanc

Loved by all, Audrey Hepburn was graceful, delicate and humble. She may have coined the ‘Little Black Dress’ as Holly Golightly, but Hepburn was just as stylish in casual cropped trousers and flats. Our Own Label Blanc is just as versatile, with many of the appealing, zesty characters brought to life by the lovely Audrey.

 

 

Kathryn Hepburn & Ruby Port

Fiercely independent, Katherine Hepburn was no stranger to challenging expectations of female fashion. Her outfits of choice would have been more familiar to the androgynous styling of Cara Delevingne than the glamazons of the 1950s. We’re raising a glass of our ruby port to her – serious, intensely coloured, peppery and rich.

 

Michelle Obama & Sloe Gin

Lawyer, writer and once First Lady of the U.S, Michelle Obama optimises both brains and beauty. To her we attribute our first and very special C&B Sloe Gin. The high concentration of fruit to gin here creates a sweet and fruity liqueur, with aromatic cherry and a dry finish from the gin. We get a lovely warming glow from both.
