Fashion designer Christian Lacroix and Chivas team up for a special edition Chivas Regal 18 Year Old release.

Following on from the launch of the Chivas 12 Year Old Magnum by Christian Lacroix last year (pictured below), the new edition of Chivas 18yo will be available in selected travel retail outlets from November.

Chivas Regal 18 Year Old by Christian Lacroix features a lavish, brocade presentation box in French jacquard, with a mirrored interior, while the familiar Chivas label on the bottle is also embroidered in jacquard.

The bottle itself features an intricate “metallic” design echoing that of Lacroix’s work on the Chivas 12yo magnum.

Only 3,000 bottles of the Lacroix 18yo will be available, with around one-third allocated to the duty free market at a retail price of $495.
