Perhaps the ultimate in custom designed aluminum bottles would be one designed by a world-renowned fashion designer. Karl Lagerfeld recently came out with a design for Coke Light bottles. These were unveiled at Parisian boutique Colette. The bottles were sold for about $5 each, or as limited-edition boxed sets for $80.
Interestingly enough, Lagerfeld does not seem to be the first fashion designer to create designs for an aluminum bottle. Famous shoe designer Manolo Blahnik has come out with similar designs for Coke. Further evidence that the aluminum bottle has indeed become a minor cultural phenomenon.
