Belvedere Vodka Takes Flight With Jimmy Choo!
What does Belvedere Vodka and Jimmy Choo’s latest fragrance Flash, have in common?
Well they both encompass all things glamorous, fashionable and all that’s en vouge at the moment.
And that’s why the two were paired off in a rather fun cocktail-fragrance crawl, that would take us to bar outlets around Kuala Lumpur.
Belvedere Vodka cocktails inspired by the fashion and glamour of Jimmy Choo.. can’t think of a more fun way to spend a boozy afternoon.
Belvedere Vodka, the world’s first luxury vodka, is synonymous with fashion and glamour around the world, playing host to key parties during London and New York Fashion Week every year. Cementing this fashion association is Belvedere Vodka’s latest collaboration with luxury brand Jimmy Choo that will run at participating bars from July to August 2013.
Taking cues from Jimmy Choo’s second fragrance, Flash, an ultra modern white floral fragrance, five of Kuala Lumpur’s top bars have created signature Belvedere Vodka cocktails that capture the cool rush of excitement and the sense of power a woman feels when dressed in a pair of sexy shoes. The Jimmy Choo woman is at once provocative and a little bit naughty, she challenges convention; she’s a risk taker, charming, audacious and magnetic.
The excitement continues at the bar were folks can sample all four of the Jimmy Choo Flash inspired Belvedere Vodka cocktails from each bar in a “flight” – a sampler of four shot glasses available at RM99nett. And the first 20pax to purchase the Jimmy Choo Belvedere Vodka Flight shots stand to receive a miniature 4ml bottle of Flash fragrance by Jimmy Choo worth RM55!
If you take a special liking to any of the shots, full sized Jimmy Choo Belvedere Vodka cocktails are also available at the participating bars. Purchase a bottle of Belvedere Vodka Pure and you could stand a chance to win the full sized bottle of Flash fragrance by Jimmy Choo.
