Iconic Italian appliance specialist Smeg has partnered with premium Champagne brand Veuve Clicquot, for two limited edition retro-style refrigerators certain to add fizz to any kitchen space.
Sporting Veuve Clicquot branding and staple yellow shade, the FAB28 and FAB10 refrigerators will launch this November. We’ve had an early hands on, and can confirm they’re both predictably gorgeous.
The partnership is the latest high profile collaborative launch from Smeg, which has previously partnered with Disney, Coca-cola, Dolce & Gabbana and Mini.
The two models were unveiled at a Red Carpet launch at Smeg’s London showroom.
The Smeg FAB 10 mini fridge is an eye-catching one-off option. It stands at 970mm tall and 545mm wide, and features the famous Smeg signature in stainless steel, alongside Veuve Clicquot’s classic logo. The fridge door provides handy storage and its inner shelves can be adjusted to accommodate cans and bottles.
Its full-sized sibling, the FAB28, can apparently store up to 54 bottles of Veuve Clicquot. In addition to adjustable shelves, it utilises LED strip lighting and metal wine racks to ensure bottles are displayed and stored at their best.
Both Smeg models are part of Veuve Clicquot’s The Icons project, a collection of classic products which commemorate the 250th anniversary of the Champagne Maison. The Smeg FAB fridge was first launched in 1997.
The Clicquot FAB10 and FAB28 sell for £2,500 and £3,500 respectively. Both will be available from shop.smeguk.com and Smeg’s flagship London store from November 2022.
