This Champagne Holder Is Made From Paper and Potatoes

These days it seems as though any Champagne is only as good as the special-edition, breathlessly hyped container it comes in. So while Dom Perignon can claim Jeff Koons's dog, and Cristal's got a gold jeroboam, Veuve Clicquot is taking another route entirely with this cocoonlike thing, which is made of recycled paper and potato starch. Unlike its decadent, superfluous counterparts, the C├ędric Ragot–designed holder is actually good for something: The case keeps bottles chilled for up to two hours. The Champagne and cover will be available in stores for $58 next month. It's no shiny balloon dog, but hey, it's recyclable! [NYDN]
