Iconic Fashion House Courreges Creates New Limited Edition Bottle for evian®

Collaboration Follows Previous Designs from Issey Miyake, Paul Smith, Jean Paul Gaultier, and Christian Lacroix

TORONTO, ONTARIO--(Marketwire - Oct. 4, 2011) - evian® Natural Spring Water has partnered with French fashion designer André Courrèges to create a new limited edition bottle design that combines evian®'s free-minded spirit with Courrèges' nonconventional creativity.

"evian® and Courrèges both share the idea that youth is a matter of attitude rather than age," said Jerome Goure, VP Marketing, Danone Waters of America. "The idea here was to bring Courreges' timeless taste for fresh concepts to conceive a water bottle design that radiates a joy and a freedom from convention."

The design features Courrèges' elegant white and pink emblematic flower (introduced in 1967) on the backdrop of evian's iconic glass bottle silhouette, radiating youth and positivity. With its organic ink and 100 per cent recyclable packaging, the bottle's very substance conveys the idea that youth is ever evolving regardless of age.

Courrèges is known for consistently ushering in major trends, from being the first brand to put women in pants, to debuting the first miniskirt. The fashion house's interest in modern design and futurism seamlessly complements evian®'s Live young® spirit.

Starting with the launch of its Olympic Games bottle in 1992, evian® has had a history of introducing highly coveted limited edition bottles that highlight the brand's spirit. Since 2008, the brand has developed these bottles in partnership with major innovative fashion designers, including Issey Miyake, Paul Smith, Jean Paul Gaultier and Christian Lacroix. With bold and innovative designs, each Limited Edition keeps the same spirit: reinventing a rare and festive moment.

"evian and Courrèges are two brands that are bound by a sense of restless optimism," says Barak Orenstein, Senior Brand Manager, evian® Canada. "Together, we seek to bring the Live young® spirit to Canadian homes throughout 2012."

This 750mL bottle will be available at select Canadian restaurants and retailers in November.
