Hennessy V.S.O.P. Privilege Collection 6 is a collaboration with acclaimed British art director Peter Saville, who is renowned for his flair for colours and remarkable technique of re-contextualising data as a visual and cultural language. He has become iconic for his legendary artistic vision and willingness to push boundaries. For the 2015 Hennessy V.S.O.P. Privilege Collection, Saville looked into chromatography to highlight individual components of a complex across the colour spectrum. With his technique of data visualisation, the 2015 V.S.O.P. Privilege Limited Edition series reveals an architectural, emotionally resonant imagery of color, contrast, finish and texture.
In reconstructing the V.S.O.P. blend’s topography, Saville discovered colours derived from the distillation process: the warmth of red and orange hues, the bluish-green encrustation naturally associated with copper, and a Prussian “chemical bright” blue, a colour that blends a feeling of richness with the edge of science, as Saville likes to call it.
