TORONTO, Nov. 7 /CNW/ - Evian(R) Natural Spring Water, the world's
leading brand of bottled water, announced today that in celebration of the
upcoming winter season, it will release the latest in its line of annual
designer bottles. This bottle, designed by exhilarant French fashion designer
Christian Lacroix, signifies the brand's dedication to chic sophistication,
providing consumers with an epicurean experience in each of these limited
edition bottles and commences a new annual tradition. Designer-developed
bottles will now carry-on the legacy of the beloved holiday bottles, which

frosted feel and is reminiscent of the flora that can be found at the French
Alps. The curved lines within the design give the bottle a soft, inviting feel
that is sure to entice all water drinkers.
"Christian Lacroix was selected to collaborate on this bottle because of
his ability to break down doors in the fashion industry, creating masterpieces
that are bold and daring, while maintaining an air of luxury," said Jeff
Caswell, Vice President of Marketing for Evian North America. "His designs
transcend the French fashion scene and have been accepted throughout the
world, much like the path that Evian has followed throughout the years.

classic Evian bottle and has provided the bottle with a look that is fitting
for the runway."
