Veuve Clicquot x K-WAY Has Summer Zipped Up

A covetable new collaboration, this limited-edition Ice Jacket will keep you and your Champagne cool

It's the Champagne House with a modern attitude, and its latest move is to join forces with French brand K-WAY to reimagine the Veuve Clicquot Ice Jacket in the style of K-WAY's famous windbreakers, a limited edition release available exclusively from Smith & Caughey's.

An all-weather case for your champagne, this limited-edition release features K-WAY signatures like a hood and zipper, executed in that joyful shade of sunshine yellow that is Veuve Clicquot’s hallmark.

Beyond its stylishly sporty appearance, the Veuve Clicquot x K-WAY Ice Jacket harnesses K-WAY's technical know-how; the waterproof and windproof ice jacket features a triple-layer design encompassing a nylon outer and neoprene inner, keeping the Champagne inside chilled for up to 90 minutes.

Though surprising and unexpected at first glance, it’s a synergetic partnership, with both brands possessing a sense of tradition and trust, while also maintaining a contemporary approach that keeps them moving with the times. Veuve Clicquot champagne boasts enduring popularity and is a fixture with the well-heeled. Its famous Clicquot Yellow bottle is instantly recognisable, and K-WAY's signature windbreakers equally so.

This collaboration is well-timed. With the weather warming and a summer that is set to be full of picnics, outdoor events and alfresco entertaining, the Veuve Clicquot x K-WAY Ice Jacket will be a fixture of the upcoming season, keeping your Veuve Clicquot cool, while also performing double-duty — transforming into a waist bag, a famous K-WAY functionality (its windbreakers transform into the same accessory) that can hold your phone, keys and other accoutrements once the Champagne is finished. A stylish and adaptable item for year-round use.

Veuve Clicquot first debuted its high-tech, isothermal Clicquot Ice Jacket 15 years ago, as a way to keep its beloved bottles at the perfect drinking temperature, and able to be enjoyed on-the-go. And this update is the latest in the Champagne House's eventful year — with activity like its recent Bold Conversations event championing fresh thinking that has come to define the brand.

Sure to be a collectors' item, this covetable iteration is available in Aotearoa exclusively from Smithandcaugheys.co.nz for $119, and each limited-edition Veuve Clicquot x K-WAY Ice Jacket comes with a bottle of Veuve Clicquot Yellow Label Champagne — chic, cool and just in time for summer.

Veuve Clicquot x K-WAY is available only from Smithandcaugheys.co.nz
