HENNESSY V.S X LES TWINS
HENNESSY V.S X LES TWINS
HENNESSY V.S x LES TWINS "LIL BEAST"
For the Hennessy Very Special 2021 limited edition, the French urban movement creators Laurent and Larry Bourgeois express the pulse of street culture in a dual design incorporating freestyle dance, original music and the Maison’s first-ever fashion capsule collection. Far more than a classic collaboration, this Hennessy Very Special partnership marks a brand-new horizon and a groundbreaking meeting of minds.
HENNESSY V.S X LES TWINS "CA BLAZE"
The art of creating Hennessy Very Special reveals surprising parallels with the world of dance. Using motion capture technology, Maison Hennessy preserved the exhilarating energy of Les Twins’ live performance and transposed those digital images into an original limited edition design. For the first time, a single limited edition is represented by two complementary graphic designs: each bottle features a likeness of either Laurent or Larry.
HENNESSY VERY SPECIAL X LES TWINS
Hennessy partners up with two cultural icons to reveal a hypnotising, exhilarated limited edition cognac bottle – a collaboration that marks several firsts.
Two cultural icons
Recognized internationally for their new-style hip-hop dancing and their captivating, energy-filled freestyles, Laurent and Larry Bourgeois, known professionally as Les Twins, have gained an international reputation.
Alikes, whose moves, can’t be tamed
The self-taught talents draw their inspiration from what is in the air and on the airwaves, picking up classical moves and incorporating them into their repertoire to light up dance floors with their freestyles.
An artistic interpretation
Just as an exceptional cognac comes from blending many unique eaux-de-vie, freestyle performing requires harmonious movements, a unique assembly based on skill and instinct. Both arts demand precise gestures, boundless energy — and a spark of genius.
CELEBRATING FRENCH HERITAGE
“Visiting the Château de Bagnolet was like walking into a chapter of French history. And we knew we wanted to create something completely new because the Maison has such an incredible story, with so much passion behind it. Believe it or not, their saga resonates with the story of Les Twins, 250 years later.”
PARALLELS WITH THE WORLD OF DANCE
In the vineyards, distilleries, and Founder’s Cellar in Cognac, Les Twins found inspiration in not just one aspect but the entire art of making Hennessy Very Special cognac, from earth and vine to barrel and glass. The initiation to a craft spanning centuries served as a creative trigger for a freestyle dance interpretation of the six principal stages of cognac-making and the wonder Les Twins experienced at Hennessy.
