Recently, Bottletop, a luxury accessories brand, celebrated the launch of its collaboration with Narciso Rodriguez and Pepsi called The Narciso Rodriguez (heart) Bottletop Collection x Pepsi® at the Sikkema Jenkins & Co. Gallery in Chelsea. Notable guests included Narciso Rodriguez, Candice Swanepoel, Livia Firth, Cameron Saul, Claire Daines, Hugh Dancy, Colin Firth, Roger Saul, Kelly Rutherford, Carolyn Murphy, Dianna Agron, Olivia Palermo, Gigi Hadid, among many others. The Spring/Summer 2014 collection was on display at the venue and consisted of two signature handbag designs – Candice, named after Candice Swanepoel, the face of the collaboration, and Jessica, named after Jessica Alba, who introduced Bottletop and Narciso Rodriguez.
The handbag designs are truly unique and inspirational. They are made of up-cycled metal ring pulls and Amazon Rainforest-friendly leather, developed by hand in Brazil. Next to the designs, campaign imagery of supermodel Candice Swanepoel by photographer Ben Watts and photographs of the Bottletop atelier in Brazil were showcased. Additionally, limited edition Narciso Rodriguez (heart) Bottletop x Pepsi cans in Blush and Matte Black were featured at the event.
The exclusive collaboration honors innovative and ethical design as well as meaningful fundraising. What an incredible feat!
