PERRIER x TAKASHI MURAKAMI

PERRIER® has announced a new, vibrant collaboration with renowned artist Takashi Murakami, inspired by the pop and colourful universe of the artist and the creative and pioneering spirit of PERRIER®: PERRIER® x MURAKAMI. In early October 2020, two premium Limited Edition PERRIER® screen printed glass bottles featuring original artworks by Takashi Murakami will be launched around the world. In early 2021, the full PERRIER® Original range will be released in the colours and motifs of Murakami, followed by a Roland Garros Limited Edition to be released only in France.

Takashi Murakami’s signature smiling flowers will bring an extra pop of colour and joy to the iconic green PERRIER® bottles, in screen printed 33cl and 75cl. The 33cl bottle will
also feature Murakami’s most beloved characters, Kaikai and Kiki, who will also appear alongside PERRIER® in a 30-second animated film, produced with Takashi Murakami. Classic
glass, PET bottles and cans will be launched in early 2021.

When PERRIER® first approached me I felt extremely lucky to have the opportunity to collaborate with this sparkling water brand with such a long history. I held many positive
associations for me – for example, when I was 32 and started living in New York I used to drink PERRIER® a lot.

Even further back though I have another very strong memory: I was on the first romantic date of my life at age 18, with a girl two years my senior. We went to a place in Ginza and I ordered a bottle of PERRIER®, mistaking it for alcohol. I remember it all so clearly – especially how confused I felt when I didn’t feel any alcohol effects after drinking many glasses! PERRIER® for me is closely associated first with the colour green – of course! – and then with the pleasant bubbling sound of carbonation.

I’m grateful to be part of the brand’s expanding views and future-facing concepts through this collaboration. I also wonder if today, when we can no longer unthinkingly hug, kiss, or shake hands, the stimulating sensation of the PERRIER® bubbles on our tongues will be even more
heightened, as one of the enjoyable tactile experiences still available to us! I am delighted to be part of this collaboration with PERRIER® and I hope that together we can heighten that
sense of relationship further, sharing a little more joy and hope for the future.
