Forget about branded Band-Aids. It looks like the next designer collaboration is going to be wine labels. Karl Lagerfeld illustrated a label for the 350th anniversary of Château Rauzan-Ségla, a winery that just so happens to be owned by Chanel.
And now Simon Kneen, Banana Republic's creative director, has gotten into the game as well. Kneen designed labels for a chardonnay and a cabernet sauvignon from Clos du Bois. The bottles - and, ostensibly, the wines within them - will be available beginning November 1.
