In celebration of Lexus’ all-new LC 500 luxury coupe, Barneys New York is offering a finely crafted, limited-edition collection of barware inspired by the car’s elegant design. Lexus’ LC 500 is the Japanese company’s first entry into the highest premium end of the luxury coupe market segment, and Barneys New York’s’ made-in-Italy Lexus XO sommelier set represents the most elegant, handcrafted bar goods available.

Inspired by the LC 500, the four handcrafted pieces include a lead-free crystalline wine decanter with a unique, leaning silhouette designed to maximize wine aeration; a stingray-leather covered bar tray to match the Lexus LC 500’s interior paneling; and a foil cutter and double-levered corkscrew fashioned in mirror-polished stainless steel and white mother-of-pearl “to reflect the bespoke white leather upholstery of the car,” notes Tom Kalenderian, Executive Vice President of Barneys. The set comes with an orange travel pouch to match the car’s award-winning interior trim. “The colors for the LC 500 were chosen for their bold, statement-making effect,” says Brian Bolain, Lexus’ USA General Manager for Product and Consumer Marketing. “And the sommelier set, like the car, was designed for those who are not afraid to be noticed.”
The Lexus XO Barneys New York’s sommelier set is available in a limited quantity and can be purchased online, or at the Madison, Beverly Hills, and Chicago stores.
