French champagne house Veuve Clicquot, owned by LVMH, has tapped artist Yayoi Kusama for a limited edition bottle of La Grande Dame 2012.

The bottle's name means "The Great Lady" and it was originally created in honor of Madame Clicquot, who helped build the empire during the 1800's as a great entrepreneur. Kusama, a pioneer and figure of utmost importance in the art world herself, has decorated the bottle and box with her famous polka dots. Additionally, she has crafted a flower sculpture like the artwork pictured on the box.

Fans of both brands can pre-order this limited edition bottle for $195 starting on September 17 by filling out their email on Veuve Cliquot's website. The bottle will officially release in October. If you're interested in the sculpture, which comes with a magnum bottle and retails for $36,000, you can email privateclient@moethennessey.com. Kusama shared a poem early on in the pandemic to help everyone in her own way.

Release Date: 9/17/20 (Thursday) - Pre-order
