1800 Tequila have recruited Poppy Lissiman and Manu Crooks to help refine your Summer wardrobe, and cocktail capabilities.
Whether you religiously overhaul your wardrobe at the turn of the season, or simply like to stay ahead of the latest trends, 1800 Tequila have emerged with a limited-edition collection where flavour meets
fashion in a very bold way. Unveiling bespoke fashion items and fresh new cocktail creations for those serious about style, 1800 Tequila has teamed up with accessories supremo, Poppy Lissiman, and music
maverick, Manu Crooks, to launch the 1800 Essential Artists collaboration. Having designed the most covetable collection of Summer staples, you can expect simple silhouettes and supreme minimalism in
this must-have release.
From timeless pieces to essential accessories, the three piece collection is exactly what you can expect your fashion-forward friends to be wearing this Summer. Channelling the allure of 1800 Tequila that is,
‘just refined enough’, Poppy and Manu are offering up a dynamic display of fashion via three super sleek items; a black waist bag with silver chain detailing, a must-have minimalist bucket hat, and the humble 6-panel cap. As for the flavours to match, expect to see the likes of peach, champagne and tequila combined in these all-new recipes to inspire 1800 Tequila’s spirit lovers.
Combining the high-fashion undertone of 1800 Tequila with that of Poppy Lissiman’s flirtatious brand, you’ll find a monochromatic must-have investment for the summer season. A testament to her electric
aesthetic, Poppy’s designs were most recently worn by Queen Bey herself, featured front and centre in the new Black Is King music video that dropped late August 2020. With her accessories line now donning a celeb tick of approval, you’ll no doubt look and feel like a true fashion icon following this purchase. Poppy’s affinity and obsession with 1800 Tequila stems from her having spent several months living in Mexico during her early 20’s, finding her passions and learning from travel. This collaboration embodies a very organic fusion of Poppy’s style and interests; “Everything about my time in tequila’s homeland was gritty but pretty” say’s Poppy rather earnestly. “I’ve popped those memories into a fashion piece and there you have it, something that feels true to me but very on trend.”
Much like the basket bag, or tortoiseshell sunnies, the bucket hat has cemented itself as a vital summer accessory. Inspired by the timeless 1800 Tequila mentality that reads: Trabajo, Pasion, Honestidad,
(Work, Passion, Honesty), Manu worked with the 1800 team to personify his own motif, one that rightfully represents his humble hustle as a music artist. Emblazoned across the smooth, black bucket hat is the phrase ‘Mood Forever’, encapsulating Manu’s outlook on life and style. “Mood Forever is meant to inspire, uplift, and challenge. To me it means reaching way past your potential but also the arduous journey, and the sheer determination to achieve something even when all the odds are stacked against you.” Mirroring the laser sharp focus of his athletic basketball days, Manu carries this Mood Forever mindset with him in the studio and on stage. He may just have a concert series in the works under this exact name…stay tuned.
Given the concrete impact the coronavirus pandemic has had on the hospitality sector of Australia, 1800 Tequila will be donating all profits made from this exclusive release to Scarf, a social enterprise
transforming young lives via training, mentoring and paid work experience. Scarf is a not-for-profit organisation making employment opportunities more equitable for young people facing barriers to
work; individuals seeking asylum, and those from refugee and migrant backgrounds who’ve been locked out of the job market.
