HENNESSY VS 700ML PANTONE EDITION
Art world phenomenon Felipe Pantone is constantly on the move. Already a budding rebel when, aged 10, he arrived in Spain from his native Buenos Aires, he moved from streetwise experiments in graffiti to forging his own path at the intersection of vintage typography, optical art and kinetics. Today, Felipe Pantone is a world-renowned artistic pioneer. His visual language resonates in a collision of mesmerizing colour, bold graphics and 3D illusions, while his technique explores an appreciation of history that is constantly being transformed by forward-looking technology.
The Hennessy Very Special Limited Edition by Felipe Pantone is based on the artist’s original artwork “W-3 Dimensional Three Stars”, a piece inspired by Hennessy’s past. Felipe Pantone became fascinated with Hennessy’s archive library in Cognac. He leafed through old labels and advertisements, surveyed antique bottles and packaging, and appropriated the three-star motif for his own exploration of the Cognac’s visual signifiers. In his creative process, the artist picked up on selected favourite themes from previous works, mixing them with patterns gleaned from long-forgotten motifs in the Hennessy archives. In addition to revisiting the three-star design, a motif used in the past by Maurice Hennessy, Felipe Pantone developed a fresh rendition of an archival quilted pattern. He then incorporated heritage finds with his own signature shapes, giving the Hennessy Very Special Limited Edition by Felipe Pantone extra punch with an iridescent lightning bolt that splices the canvas, symbolizing the speed of the digital era. Transposed onto the Hennessy Very Special label, it creates an apt metaphor for Hennessy’s ability to capture momentum through the centuries.
On the nose, Hennessy Very Special brings together an intense and fruity character with pleasant oaky notes. In the mouth, powerful flavours evoke grilled almonds, supported by the fresh, lively notes of the grapes
