Here Comes The Night

Swedish-born Andre Savaria was the most active graffiti-artist in Paris in the 1980’s before his trademark ‘Mr. A’ signature became an icon of Parisian life, travelling from the city walls to high fashion magazines and into fashion collaborations. He has a clothing line called Black Block, loves the nightlife, and appeared on the cover of the revered Purple Fashion Fall/Winter 2008 issue so when leading vodka brand Belvedere announced a collaboration with Savaria, it looks very much like a Paris match, made in heaven.

Belvedere IX will be available exclusively from select bars and restaurants around New Zealand, including Agents and Merchants, Bar3 at SkyCity, Clooney, and Hotel DeBrett in Auckland, Fat Eddies, Indochine and Sticky Fingers in Christchurch and Carousel in Dunedin, from August, 2009.
