Veuve Clicquot’s Mailbox project is a very successful one. The French champagne house has decided to expand it, while keeping an eye on charitable side of things. They have roped in designers Pamela Love and Lulu Frost to create a special edition to auction off to benefit New York’s Parsons The School for Design. The Lulu Frost x Clicquot Mailbox auction is part of the Re-Creation Awards, which offer designers and novices alike an opportunity to show off their talents by creating their versions of Clicquot Mailbox.
The Lulu Frost x Clicquot Mailbox will be auctioned off along with a bottle of Veuve Clicquot Yellow Label at Charity Buzz. Auction began on October 1 will end on October 22nd. The one-off Clicquot Mailbox is bedecked with intricate vintage chains and sparkling crystal ornaments.
Says Lisa Salzer, designer and founder of Lulu Frost jewelry “I’ve been a long-time fan of Veuve Clicquot, so to partner with such an iconic brand for this creative competition is a joy and really represents a celebration of fashion. Adding my signature vintage Plaza letters – to spell out ‘LULU LOVES VC,’ of course! – to something as unique as the Clicquot Mailbox shows how jewelry can truly push past the boundaries of the expected, and I hope that this inspires designers around the world to tap into their creativity and participate in this exciting challenge.”
The competition which began on October 1 has a submission deadline for November 15. The eventual winner of International Clicquot Mailbox Re-Creation Awards will be unveiled at a ceremony on April 9, 2015 at the Veuve Clicquot’s Hôtel du Marc in Reims, France. The winner is on line to receive $13,000 in prize money and their creation will be used as the official design for the 2015 Clicquot Mailbox.
