 On September 1st, "Y by YOSHIKI x CHAMPAGNE POMMERY Brut", the first Champagne by the "Y by YOSHIKI x CHAMPAGNE POMMERY" brand, jointly operated by YOSHIKI and the renowned French Champagne house "POMMERY", was released in Japan, before releasing the product worldwide.


The first 10,000 bottles allocated for release on the online store sold out in under 10 minutes. In addition, the entire import inventory, including pre-order sales from stores and restaurants, completely sold out in 24 hours. The speed at which this first lot of this high-end champagne sold out was unprecedented in POMMERY's long history, which dates back to its founding in 1836.


Ken Moroi, President of Vranken Pommery Japan Co., Ltd., was amazed that 10,000 bottles of Champagne, a product priced upwards of 15,000 yen (109 euros in Europe and 110 dollars in the US), sold out on the day of release. With orders from stores and restaurants continuing to flood in, and with a large number of back orders, the Pommery headquarters in France is already working to increase its production in order to restart sales next year. Going forward, the company plans to expand the number of locations that handle this product to include famous hotels, restaurants, major department stores, and wine shops.


After many revisions by YOSHIKI and POMMERY since 2019, "Y by YOSHIKI x CHAMPAGNE POMMERY Brut" has finally achieved the high degree of style and quality that both parties are known for. Its taste, aroma, and trailing notes, as well as the design of its bottle, have all been carefully selected. At the product launch press conference held on August 30th, YOSHIKI stated, "I am confident. It is the best Champagne I have ever had up to the present point."

Our human souls wander merrily, for the entire multi-verse is at their feet. Billions of galaxies, infinite realms of realities and countless space-time continuums. Is this proof then, that we've birthed a thousand times in a thousand different galaxies? It's all just Yin and Yang in play. With the full control of our anima, a tropical paradise awaits, nay in heavens or earths, but in second skins of blooming poppies. Bask in the resplendent aura of colour-bursts of yellows, blues and reds juxtaposed with calming neutrals; enjoy a veritable sense of vibing. The myriad of accent colours, poppies in citrus schemes and lilac dragons mirror a true measure of infinite realities across this horizonless world. Divine entities inconspicuously nudge us as we mould and twist our own realities in the grids of time and space .Y2K inspired graphics offer a familiar comfort on a gloomy day. KGL's Spring/Summer 2023 collection Starseed, transcending beyond the quotidian. You're born of stardust; feel the divine energy coursing within this finite body of your present incarnation as the collection's ties and cutouts embrace its form. Through this journey to your higher self you will find that the dots align in the most unexpected ways and the textures crystallise and soften in quirky rhythms. Some plain surfaces contort into waves by the simple pull of a drawstring. Mythical beings from other realities reflect the intertwined nature of one and the cosmos. "STARSEED" tells a tale of a perennially positive mind, tethering and tying countless planes of existence into cohesive idiosyncrasies. Like the infinite possibilities of existence and the constant flow of energy in the universe, the pace of our realities is in constant ebb and flow. Our beings sometimes meander and sometimes abruptly change form - forevermore coursing through the fabric of space-time to attain our higher forms nonetheless. This season Lenskart, Indiaʼs largest eyewear brand with design sensibilities that are in sync with global tastes, is the eyewear partner for this collection; accentuating looks and enrich[1]ing the greater narrative.
