Absolut Vodka have produced a series of individually numbered limited edition bottles that have been created using a colourful splash gun process. Each bottle is a stunning one-off piece of vibrant colourful art so you wouldn’t see any duplicates!

Hidden Gems Of LA x Odette Annable x Palladium BootsActress, Odette Annable puts on her proverbial Palladium walking boots and takes us on a visually stunning architectural journey for the Hidden Gems Of LA video. As the name suggests it is the more alternative and undiscovered parts of LA that Odette guides us through. From the stunning rooftop at the beautifully worn and rugged Rosslyn Hotel (pictured above), to South Central LA and the amazing hand crafted Watts Tower, which is made of recycled materials, with anything ranging from old bottles to broken plates. There is also the Brewery Artists Complex which is apparently the biggest artist community in the world and in Malibu, a 14 acre Frank Lloyd Wright property. Hidden Gems Of LA is a really insightful watch in seeing alternative aspects of LA, particularly from a historical, cultural and architectural point of view mixed in with the undertone of relaxed fashion style coming from Odette, alongside the great sense of adventure and discovery.Click here to watch the videoImage © 2010 Palladium
