Hennessy - OS GEMEOS


This limited edition bottle from Hennessy may not be as hyped up as the KAWS or Futura drops, but the design by Brazilian twins Os Gemeos certainly should be. Check out the press release after the jump.

“Brazilian-born identical twin brothers Otavio and Gustavo Pandolfo are true rock stars of contemporary art. Known better to the world as Os Gêmeos, they are famous for their versatile body of work that draws inspiration from the folklore and hip-hop culture of their homeland.

Now the brothers have taken on their most unique project to date: creating a new, limited edition bottle for Hennessy’s V.S. cognac. Inspired by the elegance, tradition, and smoothness of Hennessy V.S., Os Gêmeos’s design invokes the vibrant, eclectic style that has come to define all of the duo’s work. What’s more, each Limited Edition Hennessy V.S bottle is individually numbered with a special QR code that lets fans access specialized online content as they sip on the bottle’s exquisite contents. Hennessy is so excited by their Os Gêmeos partnership that they are launching a five-city U.S. tour in New York this August, which will then head to Chicago, Miami, Philadelphia and Houston, before wrapping up in Los Angeles in September.
