SKYY Vodka is releasing a limited Edition bottle created by no other than the fantastic Sex & the City Costume designer herself, Patricia Felid ! This is a first for the company to release a themed designed bottle and will coincide with the release of the movie in June 2nd.

“So many of Sex and the City’s most stylish moments have been when the ladies were out in Manhattan,
dressed to the nines, bonding over fun cocktails,” says Field. “SKYY Vodka has always been a brand with
style, so I was thrilled to partner with them to create something special that celebrates those special ‘cocktail couture’ moments that truly are the essence of SKYY and Sex and the City.”
