This is the latest in a string of interesting design collaborations with the likes of Andrew Putman, Christian Schwamkrug of Porsche Design Studio, Pablo Reinoso, Pucci, Karim Rashid and Jason Bruges
Riva was behind the iconic boats of the 60’s and the golden age of the Dolce Vita lifestyle...and continues to make some of the most beautiful boats in the world today.
The design collaboration with Riva is for Veuve Clicquot's top champagne (prestige cuvee) called La Grande Dame, and includes 2 different pieces, The Cruise Collection and The Cruiser Bag
La Grande Dame by Riva
He wanted to build boats that no-one had built before. She wanted a conquer Europe with her Champagne wines. Barbe Nicole Ponsardin and Pietro Riva were seperated in history by just a few short years; two people with the same credo: Being the best
Collector's pieces of innate sophistication, elegance and glamour-LaGrande Dame encapsulates the Veuve Clicquot style, while Riva's vintage Runabouts gleam with the magic of major boating events.
The Cruise Collection | The Cruiser Bag
This collector's piece combines all facets of the Riva universe with the legent of La Grande Dame. Eminently portable, with its flutes and its bottle of La Grande Dame, the Cruiser Bag would be the ideal guest at a smart picnic on board an Aquarama or beside a swimming pool on a summer evening.
The pure lines and gentle curves of the sophisticated cruiser bag are a miniature reminder of the yacht that inspired its creation: black lacquer with mahogany inlay, chroime detailing and leather trim...A little piece of heaven to carry around with you.
