For the happy few, there will be the opportunity to purchase a collector edition bottle of Shalimar parfum redesigned by Jade Jagger, the daughter of Mick Jagger and Bianca Jagger. The release celebrates the 85th anniversary of Shalimar. Only 182 copies are made available worldwide. Saks Fifth Avenue, which is hosting the event on Fashion's Night Out, will have 20 flacons of 20 ml extrait in this luxury limited-edition...
The new design will also be available much more widely via the usual commercial distribution circuits to bottle the eau de parfum from September 2010.
The new design accentuates both the angular and round lines of the classic bottle originally designed by Raymond Guerlain, pushing some of its characteristic traits to new, contrasted and balanced extremes.

About the Extrait version:
"Jade has decorated these bottles with a majestic sapphire on the neck of the bottle, a jewel set in gold and discreetly engraved with the "G" of the Maison Guerlain. The saphire is set on a black and gold silk cord, which was tied and sealed by hand by the Guerlain "ladies of the table" and can be detached and worn as a pendant."
Price: The luxury 20 ml Jade Jagger extrait edition is available for $1,500.
