The Fashion week is happening in Berlin right now..will it be fashion related?

Or maybe XY related?

Yoshiki is in Europe.
XY are in Europe.
They all will perform at the Japan Expo in Paris tomorrow tomorrow.
Are XY in Berlin today?
Will Yoshiki announce a  XY tour today?

According to one source the champagne will be sold in a gift box for around 200 Euro.
Considering that Yoshki is basically unknown in Germany to the general public it is probably safe to say that most buyers will be foreign fans

This is so weird to me. Basically noone in Germany knows him, except us freaks.

While I'm away, read this line again...

it's definitely surprising

and as usually there is a lot to leave desired when it comes to marketing activities.

The moment I decide to have a press conference all the relevant info should be available on the official homepage once the press conference takes place and not days later.
And the champagne should be readily available.

According to one article the release should have been on July 17th but none of the official resellers is offering yet.
I asked the KaDeWe about the release date but they could only tell me that the champagne is still in the launching phase and that they don't have a date yet.

I won't spend 200euro for a bottle of Yoshiki champagne. But, there are enough fan in Germany /Europe or mostly overseas fan will try to get hold of a bottle.

and the champagne is quite a bit more expensive in Germany than in Japan.
In Japan it was selling for around 16.000 YEN which is around 110 Euro.
Does "gift box" imply it comes with extras?

surely the Japanese fans will buy it,
the champagne is pre-orderable in Yoshiki's official store and the giftbox version is already sold out

I asked another official Pommery reseller because KadeWe said they wouldn't ship.

They said they could reserve me a bottle when I asked a while ago. I contacted them again this week after I got the news of the London release but no answer yet.

Kadewe might get it sooner perhaps because Kadewe ownes Selfridges so they are connected.
Maybe I need to make a trip to Berlin then. Always worth a visit!   ;D

The KaDeWE does have a small quantity now.
Alas...they still don't ship.

That's bad that they don't ship. Hopefully the other reseller will get it soon and ship it to you. Report back when you get it! Fingers crossed.

I had been in contact with www.champagnershop.de
When I inquired about the availability again I told them that I am a huge of Yoshiki and that I really would love to have a bottle for my birthday next week (not a lie)

They contacted  Pommery to check if it was possible and yesterday they said that Pommery would send me a bottle directly.
I am now waiting for the shipping confirmation.  ;D
Funny thing...someone from Pommery checked my LinkedIn profile.
