Hennessy and British designer Kim Jones presented their first collaboration, a limited edition Hennessy X.O. collection. This surprising partnership, which celebrates the skills of couture and spirits, is not lacking in style and effectiveness.


An unexpected and daring collab. Hennessy, the cognac house of LVMH, and Kim Jones, the artistic director of men’s collections at Dior and women’s collections at Fendi, have presented their first collaboration. The collection, which will be available on March 17, includes a very limited edition decanter, a decanter inspired by this masterpiece available on a larger scale and a pair of very exclusive sneakers.


This Hennessy X.O x Kim Jones collab thus celebrates couture and cognac, two sectors where craftsmanship and know-how are honored.


“We are delighted to embark on a new odyssey, blending cognac making and couture with Kim Jones, a creative master of our time”, said Laurent Boillot, CEO of Hennessy, “Inspired by the iconic personality of Hennessy X.O., Kim has developed a resolutely contemporary collection, destined to make a mark on the culture of today and tomorrow.


Kim Jones also joins the list of artists who have contributed to Hennessy X.O’s heritage over the years, such as Frank Gehry, Marc Newson, Ridley Scott and Arik Levy.


“I was interested in Hennessy’s heritage, behind which artisans have spent hundreds of years creating this special cognac”, explains the designer.


Couture and Cognac


For his first creation with Hennessy, Kim Jones designed a pair of sneakers, called HNY Low. This limited edition, made in Italy by LVMH, is inspired by old basketball shoe models and is made of cognac-colored nubuck leather. Over time, the sneaker is expected to develop a patina, “in reference to Hennessy’s brandies”, Hennessy said in a release.
