Designers Pamela Love and Lulu Frost have created bespoke mailboxes for Veuve Clicquot, which will be auctioned off to benefit the Parsons The New School for Design in New York. The project kick-starts the Re-Creation Awards – an international design competition where designers create their own limited-edition mailbox. (Bid here).
According to the company: ‘Veuve Clicquot Champagne is excited to introduce the Re-Creation Awards – a competition open to the public, which invites emerging designers to design their very own Clicquot Mailbox. Clicquot Mail is a chic gift offering for Veuve Clicquot Yellow Label that is fashioned in the shape of a modern day mailbox to celebrate Veuve Clicquot’s rich heritage of correspondence. This fall, Veuve Clicquot invites designers and novices alike to submit their own Clicquot Mailbox designs in an international online competition launching on October 1, 2014. The winning design will be reproduced and sold worldwide in 2015.’
“I’ve been a long-time fan of Veuve Clicquot, so to partner with such an iconic brand for this creative competition is a joy and really represents a celebration of fashion,” said Lisa Salzer, designer and founder of Lulu Frost jewelry. “Adding my signature vintage Plaza letters — to spell out ‘LULU LOVES VC,’ of course! -to something as unique as the Clicquot Mailbox shows how jewelry can truly push past the boundaries of the expected, and I hope that this inspires designers around the world to tap into their creativity and participate in this exciting challenge.”
