Introducing the Hennessy x Kim Jones Collaboration in South Africa

Exciting news for Hennessy enthusiasts and fashion aficionados in South Africa! The highly anticipated Hennessy x Kim Jones collaboration has finally arrived and it’s making waves across the country. This collaboration is a celebration of Hennessy X.O’s 150 years of cultural impact and features a limited edition Hennessy Masterpiece X.O decanter, as well as a pair of exclusive sneakers.

Kim Jones, the director of Fendi, has joined forces with Hennessy, the leading cognac brand with a legacy dating back over 250 years. This unique collaboration brings together their expertise in fashion and spirits to create a collection that pays tribute to the rich heritage of both brands. The collaboration showcases the artistry of cognac-making and couture processes, with the two bottles featuring intricate folds in their design, reminiscent of draped couture clothing.

The Hennessy X.O Masterpiece Decanter is an extremely limited edition piece, with only three available in South Africa. Priced at R500,000, this exquisite decanter is a true collector’s item. The Hennessy X.O Limited Edition Bottle is also available, featuring a couture-inspired design, and can be found at various retailers across the country for R3,500.

Completing the collection is the HNY Low by Kim Jones, a limited edition sneaker inspired by early low-top designs. The sneaker’s aesthetic is perfectly aligned with the cognac itself, boasting a rich brown color and crafted from premium materials like nubuck leather. The glint of the cognac is even transferred onto the soles and laces, adding a touch of luxury. The sneakers are both stylish and practical, suitable for everyday wear or special occasions. Unfortunately, only two pairs of these exclusive sneakers have made their way to South Africa and are not available for sale.

Stefanos Kondylis, Market Manager of Southern Africa at Moët Hennessy, describes the collaboration as a cultural milestone for Hennessy. He praises Kim Jones’ contemporary style and how it aligns with the iconic personality of Hennessy X.O. This collaboration is not only a fusion of craftsmanship but also a blend of culture and creativity, bridging the gap between the world of fashion and the world’s leading cognac brand.

The Hennessy x Kim Jones Limited Edition Collection is a testament to the artistry and innovation that these two powerhouses bring to the table. With its limited availability and aesthetic appeal, this collection is sure to make a lasting impact on the fashion and spirits industries. So, what do you think of the Hennessy Low sneakers by Kim Jones?
