Acclaimed fashion designer Kim Jones transcends couture with a special collection featuring a collectible sneaker and a Hennessy XO decanter.
We just love when great minds come together and it seems to be something that’s increasingly popular in the luxury world, especially when it comes to spirits.

The XO x Kim Jones collaborative release pairs the world-renowned British artistic director and fashion designer’s vision with the legendary spirit from Cognac.
For Hennessy X.O, the designer pays tribute to cognac-making and couture, two processes that touch on an understanding of science and the natural world as well as artisanal craftsmanship and savoir-faire. He follows in the footsteps of a formidable lineage of great masters who have helped cement Hennessy X.O’s cultural resonance over the years, including Frank Gehry, Cai Guo-Qiang and Ridley Scott.
Interweaving the richness of Hennessy X.O’s 250-year heritage with Kim Jones’ creative vision, the collaboration features the Hennessy X.O Masterpiece designed by Kim Jones, which the artist has described as draped like a couture dress on a body; the Hennessy X.O Limited Edition bottle by Kim Jones, and in a first for the brand, the HNY Low by Kim Jones sneaker, which is presented in Cognac hues in nubuck leather with a shiny patina.
This also marks the first time Maison Hennessy has partnered with a fashion designer, and that Kim Jones collaborates with a spirits brand.
