Hey all you fashionistas. London Fashion Week is here!
Fashion is not just about clothes. As was once said –
We totally agree. And in celebration of Fashion Week, 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 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.
With her extravagant wigs, bold eye make-up and sparkly decadent costumes, Miss Ross took Motown fashion by storm. Our blend from Pomerol experts Ets. J-P Moueix is the perfect match: the ultimate balance of classicism, hedonism, accessibility and suppleness.
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.
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.
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!
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.
Fiercely independent, Katharine 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.
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.
This Fashion Week, The Own Label Collection is exclusively available to the stylish and wine savvy online.
