Pappa Rich Express Test

As many know blue denim is the only colour I allow myself to wear, so I was thrilled when I heard Diesel was designing the bottle.  Now my bottle of Disaronno I keep in my closet doesn’t look out of place!  The launch of this epic collaboration of two Italian brand titans was such a nice event, the space, the vibe, the crowd – Belissimo!

The Saronno Italian liquer, Disaronno® is constantly changing its look, and in it’s latest incarnation, steps in to classic signature denim textile in a limited edition collaboration with Breganze fashion label, Diesel.

The luxurious amber liquer forms the base of many popular cocktails and potions, and is a hit on the rocks with its almond distinction using a recipe that has remained unchanged since the 16th Century.

Disaronno wears Diesel is a limited edition bottle wrapped in an eye-grabbing denim pattern, representing Diesel’s signature fabric.

The design reflects the synergies of the two brands: both are world-renowned, Italy-based companies that share a strong focus on promoting creativity and originality.

“Every year, the announcement of the Disaronno Limited Edition collaboration is an important international occasion, which we always look forward to.
