Houda Bakkali signs the Moët & Chandon’s cover for James Magazine
The visual artist Houda Bakkali has signed the new issue of the Italian luxury publication James Magazine. This edition shows one of the most selected champagnes, Moët & Chandon 2013 Grand Vintage.
“For this cover, I was inspired by the exclusivity of Moët and the elegance of James Magazine. The design is based on a golden circle that represents perfection. The dynamic circle is starred by the bottle of Moët and the sinuosity of its own shadow in a nod to the stimulating games full of fantasy that the moments we share with this champagne. An enveloping sensory space, suggestive and full of sensuality. A space featuring Moët’s bubbles, sophisticated, ideal for every occasion, ideal for the most special parties and to share unique moments. The cover recreates a world without regrets, designed for exclusivity and pleasure, bathed in golden color and a delicate effervescence that suggests the most intense delights of life, which, in most cases, are found in the more small details.” Underline the artist.

Moët & Chandon Grand Vintage 2013 leaves a suggestive bitter final touch of white grapefruit.
