Celebrate the Lunar New Year with a limited-edition collection of coffee, machines and gifts from the Nespresso X Angel Chen collection.
Injecting Angel’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, skillfulness and new beginnings. Fashioned out of unused wools, hand-woven materials and lace from Angel Chen’s past collections and recycled Nespresso jute coffee bags. The patchwork design is an interesting way to give the materials a second life. The recycled materials will be applied across Nespresso Boutique at The Gardens Mall store display for this special season.
Celebration the Lunar New Year with Coffee Moments
“It’s always exciting to be able to explore new ideas. This year we wanted to celebrate the rich heritage, deep traditions and the coming together of families and friends. Often associated with the Lunar New Year. Nespresso was also inspired by Angel Chen’s bold designs and creative flair. Together we wanted to push the boundaries of creativity. Give the year of the rabbit a meaningful and modern interpretation that will elevate celebrations for all coffee lovers”, says Melanie Brinbaum, Chief Brand Officer at Nespresso.
Angel Chen says “This is one of the most creative and special collaborations for me in recent times. Given that the theme was built around the year of the rabbit, I did a lot of research on materials and ways to do patchwork. I also drew inspiration from a visit to the Nespresso boutique. That’s when I saw how beautiful pieces were created from recycled coffee capsules. I enjoyed the freedom of playing around with the colours, prints and fabrics, and putting them together to create the patchwork rabbit. It is very inspiring to see how recycled things can be used.”
New creations for the new year
Inspired by the auspicious ingredients of the season and incorporating Angel Chen’s favourite ingredients such as pomelo. Nespresso has created two delightful recipes for you to try at home.
The Peanut Mocha
Made from Nespresso Master Origins Nicaragua, milk, chocolate syrup, peanut butter spread and pistachio nuts. Peanuts and pistachio nuts are popular snacks during this time of the year. Nuts are often associated with good luck and happiness.
The Sweet Reunion
Made with World Explorations Shanghai Lungo as its base, apple juice, pomelo honey jam and slices of apples are added to give the drink a fruity freshness. The Chinese pronunciation of pomelo is similar to the word ‘bless’ and the round shape of the pomelo is often associated with ‘family reunion’. The use of pomelo was suggested by Angel Chen as it is one of her favourite ingredients.
