Recap: Os Gemeos X Hennessy V.S Bottle Launch Party in NYC Featuring Nas and DJ Jazzy Jeff
The launch party for the Os Gemeos designed limited edition Hennessy V.S Bottle was held in Manhattan featuring sets by DJ Jazzy Jeff and an exclusive performance by Nas. The private event took place at a packed Pier 57 in New York City last night. As the twins circulated through the crowd, they could be seen receiving well wishes from some of the most notable names in the graffiti and streetart scene. Among those spotted include Futura, who, along with Kaws, has designed a bottle of Hennessy as well. Also sprinkled in the crowd of the super hot and super connected were Cope2, Indie184, Espo, Mare139, Terror161, photographer Martha Cooper, and Busta Rhymes, among many others.
The Os Gemeos Hennessy V.S bottle is limited to a run of 240,000 bottles in the U.S. Regarding the bottle design, the twins said: “The label represented a new medium that could carry our message… It was a fluid process for us to go from one format, like the street, to another, like the bottle label…Hennessy is not just a drink to us, it is history…We take a similar approach in our work—we draw what we believe in, and we aim to preserve those visions.”
After this initial launch party, the duo will head to Chicago, Miami, Philadelphia and Houston, before wrapping up with a final launch party in Los Angeles in September.
