A High-flyer’s fantasy : €450K Krug Escape Artist Champagne Trunk Collection
Founded in 1843, the house of Krug has been providing the world with fine champagnes for six generations now and the legendary winemakers have now collaborated with equally celebrated trunk-maker Pinel & Pinel to create a limited edition Krug Escape Artist champagne trunk collection. The line features three designs first of which is covered and lined in fine red calfskin leather on the outside with nickel-plated brass hinges and brown calfskin lining draping the corners. The trunk comes fully decked with two packs of poker cards made by ‘Bee’, five casino dice and 200 professional 11g chips, along with two bottles of Krug Grande Cuvée and a collection of bar essentials including four Baccarat crystal glasses, a Krug stopper and a Krug champagne cooler designed exclusively by François Bauchet.
A secret drawer holds four Pinel & Pinel nickel-plated brass coasters with stunning leather bases. The second design comes with a blue lambskin exterior, off-white calfskin lining, cigar holder, an XCAR cigar cutter and DuPont cigar lighter along with two bottles of 1995 Krug. The third design in the collection comes in a silver lambskin exterior and pink lambskin lining decked with a Samsung T9 MP3 video player with Bluetooth and JBL ‘On Tour Plus’ sound system as well as two bottles of Krug Rosé.
The entire truck weighs only 17kgs with contents and retails for €15,000 each at Singapore Changi and Hong Kong International airports.
