Nearly 600 guests were exclusively treated to an interpretive, one-of-a-kind spectacle bringing to life the theatrical dimension of Whisky-tasting

LONDON, September 18, 2014 – SYMPHONY IN BLUE: A Journey to the Centre of the Glass closed with a bang after running three shows on 16th and 17th September. Nearly 600 guests, including Daniel Bruhl, Donna Air, Luke Treadaway, and Regi Blinker attended the exclusive premier of the world’s first experiential, musical and artistic journey.

This journey took them to the centre of a glass of JOHNNIE WALKER® BLUE LABEL™, allowing them to discover how the brand pioneered the Art of Blending almost 200 years ago, and better appreciate the six distinct flavours – fresh, fruity, malty, woody, spicy and smoky – of the Whisky. Additionally, the talented and charming Jude Law made a cameo appearance during the last show on the 17th September.

“This multi-sensory immersive theatre  event was ambitious from concept   to   completion,  with   no   blue   print   or   comparison JOHNNIE WALKER®  BLUE LABEL™, together  with  Done  + Dusted successfully created a new 360 entertainment property that we  are  all  immensely  proud   of.    The  SYMPHONY IN  BLUE shows  were  truly  brilliant  and  to  see the  amazement, awe  and wonder  on  the  guests  faces  was  thrilling  to  see,”  said  Hamish
Hamilton, Director  Done+Dusted.

SYMPHONY IN  BLUE: A Journey  to  the  Centre  of the  Glass culminated  in  a  grand   finale   featuring   an   imitable   musical instrument, dubbed  The Flavour Conductor, created by renowned architectural foodsmiths Bompas  and  Parr.  This  epic showpiece instrument engaged  guests in a theatrical performance using the latest techniques  in projection mapping, combined  with a corresponding  contemporary  sound   and   light   spectacular  to
showcase the ultimate  Whisky tasting experience  of JOHNNIE WALKER BLUE LABEL. Towards the end,  visual effects, music,  dance,  theatre, choreography and  sensorial  wonders  concluded  the night.

“The Flavour Conductor is a ground-breaking project that helps one  pick  apart   the  rare  depth   and  character  of  JOHNNIE WALKER  BLUE LABEL.  We’ve  worked   with  Prof.  Charles Spence to identify the cross-modal aural  and visual cues linked to flavour  and used these to design the world’s first organ  that changes  your  perception  of  the  taste.  Each  pipe  is  tuned  to highlight  certain  flavours  within  the glass. As the organ  plays, the  instrument  design,  composition  and  projection  mapping bring  to  the  fore  the  six  essential  flavour   characteristics  of Johnnie  Walker  Blue Label in the most  visceral way possible,” said Sam Bompas, Founder,  Bompas & Parr.

Extending  the experience at SYMPHONY IN BLUE: A Journey to  the  Centre  of the  Glass,  this  universe  of flavour, craftsmanship and dramatic storytelling  will travel to other cosmopolitan cities  such  as  New  York,  Berlin,  Shanghai  and Singapore in the upcoming  months.

About JOHNNIE WALKER® BLUE LABEL™

JOHNNIE WALKER BLUE LABEL is one of the pinnacle offerings from JOHNNIE WALKER.

Only sublime,  rare  whiskies at the pinnacle  of perfection  are used in the blending  of JOHNNIE WALKER BLUE LABEL, with only 1 in 10,000  casks containing  Whisky of sufficient character to deliver its remarkably smooth  signature  taste. Each is hand selected by the JOHNNIE WALKER Master  Blender himself, part of an unbroken lineage of Master  Blenders stretching  back over 190 years – it is an ultimate  expression  of Whisky making today and an remarkable achievement  for the modern  era.

Presented in individually  numbered  bottles,  it is reminiscent  of the 19th  century style of whiskies. The Master Blender  uses his decades  of experience  to  select some  of the  rarest  casks  from  the  JOHNNIE WALKER reserves for their quality,  character and flavour to create the powerful,  complex,  smooth  character of BLUE LABEL.

BLUE LABEL has a mellow, rounded nose, with a dry smokiness (a JOHNNIE WALKER signature  flavour) mixing with raisin sweetness. It is best savoured  with the palate  cleansed and cooled by iced water.  One sip reveals a velvety mouth-feel,  then  an explosion  of flavour.  At once  you’ll discover  hazelnuts,  honey,  rose petals,  sherry  and  oranges.  Subsequent  sips reward  you  with  more  hidden  secrets  like  kumquats, wispy aromatic  smoke, sandalwood, tobacco,  and dark chocolate.

It is the moment just before sun sets when the light dances upon the Grand Canal. The light is softer now, illuminating the shimmering waterway, reflecting the facade of the Ca’ d’Oro. Built on water and steeped in beauty, the Golden Palace of Venice is our destination. This Spring, intricate detailing is paired with playful transparencies. Insets of chain mesh on tulle ornament the bodices and sleeves & multi-colored jeweled embellishments are inspired by Millefiori glass. Sheer mesh necklines give the illusion of floating dresses. Softly sculpted silhouettes are introduced with unexpected twists. Floor-length gowns are constructed with capes attached. Dresses, cut from bonded spacer mesh, are both structured and airy. The colors of the city inspire the palette. Glowing pastels of frosted jade, pink shadow, and blue stone are built up in translucent layers, while the brilliant ultramarine blues of Venetian lagoons are paired with ivory and navy. Fabrics are custom-designed. Motif-embroidered tulles are inspired by Gothic architectural details of the Ca’ d’Oro. Floral motif lace is hand-tinted by bonding chiffon pieces to the back of lace. With the promise of an evening of enchantment, a Venetian dreamscape awaits.

Protagonist without history, invisibles of our streets.

Itinerant individuals who face themselves at the rhythm of time and place, without plans or settled course, toys in the hands of the circumstances, of time, of weather and the people who live their lives all around them without even stopping by.

Coverless is the representation of all of this cogitation, using the clothes as a canvas, proposing languid silhouettes, full of geometry, contrasting with broad pieces that reflects the great work done with the volume. Both work as a fusion of the nomad life, recreating femininity through dresses inspired in nightgowns, which empathizes the fluidity of more simples and vaporous shapes that opposes the harshness and stiffness in the textiles of the more laidback and organic counterpart. This outer silhouette hides the figure and gets his name by the so called “Homeless” style.

This proposal is completed with backpacks and bags inspired in sleeping bags, which, by the means of zippers, are able to be used separately or attached to the clothes and able to be retracted within themselves, demonstrating mindfully through the design the nomad essence of the individual.
Fabrics and materials reminiscent of an urban culture or trend, as the mesh, denim, membrane panel, impermeable and neoprene are used opposing the delicacy of more subtle textiles like gauze. Tells a story, piece by piece, through the collection which reflects the great work of experimentation through hot melted glue bounding, the superposition of stitched layers, clippings, patches and the absence of material that recreates that decadence effect.

The canvas is completed by pastel colours as Cheeks Pink, Prince Blue and Bile Yellow opposing strong saturated tones such as Nuisance Blue, Cloudy Grey and subtle brushstrokes of Traffic Fluor.
