Smeg has partnered with champagne brand Veuve Clicquot to launch a pair of limited edition ’50s-style fridges.
The partnership is in honour of Veuve Clicquot’s 250th birthday, and it’s the latest in a series of Smeg collaborations with brands including Disney, Dolce & Gabbana and Mini that have produced limited-edition fridges, as well as other co-branded kitchen appliances.
Two models of Clicquot fridge will be available, the FAB10 and the FAB28. “Any champagne connoisseur requires a mini fridge in their home bar”, says the Smeg press release, insanely, for all the world as though we aren’t in the middle of a cost of living crisis and looking forward to a recession for dessert.
If you’re struggling to decide between the two, the FAB10RDYVC5 is the one to buy if you only want to store a few bottles of fizz. It stands 97cm high and features Smeg’s iconic ’50s-style design in Veuve Clicquot yellow, with twin branding on the front. It has an ‘E’ energy efficiency rating and an annual energy consumption of 142 kWh/a. It has 105 litres of space in the refrigerator and and a 17-litre ice box.
