There's Now a Carhartt WIP Espresso Machine
Collabs have gone beyond the usual. They're not only restricted to clothing, sneakers, or luggage. Case in point: the Carhartt WIP x Rocket Espresso Milano. What does an American apparel company have to do with an Italian espresso machine company, you ask? A mutual appreciation for craftsmanship it seems.
Carhartt WIP has created a custom, limited-edition espresso machine with a strong military feel. According to the company, the "olive green hue takes inspiration from Carhartt WIP’s military-inspired garments, and the stainless steel body of the machine is powder coated giving it a coarse, matte finish."
Apart from the design, it's a pretty sick espresso machine. It has a heat exchanger boiler design, hot water nozzle, permanent steam supply, single- and double-shot portafilter, and a 1.8 liter water reservoir. Interested? You can snag it for the bargain price of £1,400.00 (approximately P93,000).
There are only 100 pieces made, and each machine is individually numbered through a custom enamel badge. Sadly, it looks like everything's already been sold out. If you can still get your hands on the machine, however, it would definitely make a killer addition to a bachelor pad.
As far as collabs go, this is pretty cool. But, this just proves that with partnerships, the sky's the limit—and, we're all for it.
