lebron ♥s sparkles + tiger stripes
As reported on eater, hiphopwired and many other outlets, LeBron James and his teammates celebrated their NBA championship victory by drowning themselves in personalized, bedazzled bottles of Moët & Chandon Nectar Impérial Rosé Champagne.
The usual suggested retail price is $70, but we are told that limited-edition Cavalier-crystal 3-liter versions will hit the market for $5,000 a pop.
The Maxim piece quotes Burlon as follows:
"Rosé Champagne is the only thing I drink. After a glass or two, I feel sexy, decadent, and wild... One night in 2006, I was organizing an after-party in Milan for Versace... I left the door and had a few glasses of Champagne, and I just went crazy. I started dancing, and I didn’t give a fuck about anyone or anything... There were a lot of models dancing with me, too: Natasha Poly, Joan Smalls, Karen Elson. Prince was onstage writhing with a pair of twin girls—his backup singers. They were super hot, with beautiful voices and big hair waving all around. That was the masterpiece of the night: being gloriously drunk and experiencing that mesmerizing moment. Champagne isn’t just something that’s celebratory and fun. It makes you feel more present, more confident, maybe even a little more dangerous. That’s why I put a tiger on the labels I designed. Because that pink Champagne inside can turn you into an animal."
The Cavaliers were animals. Did they sip some Nectar Impérial before that last game?
