Nespresso has partnered Chinese fashion designer Angel Chen for a limited-edition Lunar New Year collection to ring in an auspicious Year of the Rabbit. Injecting Chen’s signature colourful approach into fashion and fusion of Eastern and Western aesthetics, the Nespresso x Angel Chen collaboration features a patchwork rabbit design — a creative and playful interpretation of the animal often seen as a symbol of elegance, skill and new beginnings.
Fashioned out of unused wool, hand-woven materials and lace from Chen’s past collections and recycled Nespresso jute coffee bags, the patchwork design is an interesting yet pragmatic way to give selected materials a second life while symbolising the coming together of family and friends during this special time of the year.
The recycled materials will be applied across Nespresso Boutique at The Gardens Mall store display in Kuala Lumpur for this special season. Shop for the new collection at leisure; it includes a travel mug (RM129) and a special five-sleeve pack (RM124.50), but we highly recommend getting both — they are bundled together for a special seasonal price of RM238. There are also special deals available on its machines. See here for more details.
