David Lynch Designs Labels for Dom Pérignon

Director gives champagne bottles a ghostly glow

David Lynch recently caused a stir with a coffee commercial. Now, he's moving on to stronger stuff, Dom Pérignon, by designed some special, limited-edition labels for the champagne. Lynch spent two days in a darkroom in California photographing the original Dom Pérignon and Dom Pérignon Rosé bottles with all sorts of funky lighting around them—then designed the labels off those photos. Thus, they have a ghostly luminescence to them—classy but with the undercurrent of unease for which the director is famous. "The worlds of Dom Pérignon and the one of David Lynch have many points in common: mystery, intensity, commitment, time, the constant reinvention of the self, and above all, absolute faith in the power of creation," the brand says on its website.
