Hennessy V.S limited edition by Stéphane Ashpool

The Paris-based designer and urban artist dressed the iconic Hennessy V.S bottle in vibrant, chameleon-like colors for an exclusive limited edition sold only in France.


Collaborating with some of the most exciting creators on the contemporary scene is a Hennessy Very Special tradition. In 2023, Hennessy joined forces with fashion designer Stéphane Ashpool - the award-winning founder of Pigalle - granting him carte blanche for an exclusively French project. The result is a Hennessy V.S. decanter of eye-catching iridescence that expresses the blend's character through movement.


Hennessy V.S Limited Edition by Stéphane Ashpool

For a cognac - as it is for a Paris streetwear phenomenon - defining culture means capturing the spirit of the times and fusing it with excellence of savoir-faire.

It takes an eye for what's happening culturally, both on the street and around the world. A flair for sensing creative currents before they swell into a movement. Uncompromising character. And sense of genuine craftsmanship.

... transforms by night. Music is a constant source of inspiration.
