"Revelation" By Karim Rashid
Superstar designer Karim Rashid has designed a collection of five spirit bottles for Bombay Sapphire in conjunction with jewellers Garrard and crystal brand Baccarat.
Called "Revelation", the bottles are made of hand-cut crystal and decorated with sapphires and diamonds. They cost $200,000 each.
Reflecting the global popularity of Bombay Sapphire, the limited edition Revelation bottles will be launched at five major international airport locations – starting with London Heathrow airport on March 27th, to coincide with the opening of the new terminal five and subsequently New York, Dubai, Singapore and Sydney. One Revelation bottle will be exhibited at each of the five international airports for two to three months before being securely transported to its new owner anywhere in the world.
Profits from Revelation will benefit the travel retail industry’s chosen charity, The Smile Train, which provides life-enhancing cleft surgery to children in poor countries.
