Style Spy: Happy 200th Birthday Laurent-Perrier

Following on the heels of the recent International Champagne Day, I was luckily invited to celebrate 200 years of French Champagne house Laurent-Perrier. The Deck at Circa was transformed into an intimate luncheon courtesy dangling blooms and pops of sunny yellow.

It shall henceforth be known as the – first, and likely only – time that I drank champagne worth $5000. Only three bottles of Laurent Perrier’s Grand Siecle Cuvee Reserve have made it to our shores. Though I could drink it like water, I’m sure my immature palate could not truly appreciate the drink’s nuances (I could only articulate the taste as savoury ‘lemon meringue pie’). What makes the wine so special is that is it a balance of three of the label’s best vintages.

Though our particular party didn’t have a ferris wheel as Laurent Perrier’s private birthday celebration had in France, we did have the designers from Watson x Watson and an early bout of summer heat; a brilliant excuse to drink more champagne! What does one wear to such a sparkling occasion? See below…
