Ecco Domani x Christian Siriano 2017

Another year of fashion and wine! The launch of the 2017 Ecco Domani limited edition designer label Pinot Grigio is always a fashionable fete. Partnering with fashion designer Christian Siriano for the first time was as chic as it was fun. Inspired by Palm Springs and its retro vibe, Siriano designed the pink and green pattern adorning the bottle. 

The launch event in Union Square New York City featured pops of brilliant color from Siriano's clothing designs worn by his models to the finished designer label Pinot Grigio bottle. Siriano as well as fashion/food tastemakers and influencers were in attendance. 

The social media activation of the designer label 2017 includes full integration across social media (Facebook, Instagram, Pinterest, Website) as we show Ecco Domani lovers how to integrate this beautiful wine bottle into their summer entertaining with fun, chic, fashionable style...#StyledBySiriano. Ecco Domani Style Society includes social media fashion and F&B influencers who show us how to entertain with designer label, for the ultimate Palm Springs summer party upgrades. 

Cheers to a fashionable summer full of entertaining with runway style, pouring Ecco Domani limited edition designer label Pinot Grigio.
