Manley Creating the Perfect Blend between Fashion & Coffee #LoveBeingfestive

It’s starting to look a lot like Christmas at Insomnia Coffee Company.

Coffee lovers can get their festive fix at Insomnia with their new Christmas range now in store. This year Insomnia has partnered with fashion and accessories label Manley to design their new Christmas Cups.

The cups come in three designs and with a central theme, the iconic “White Christmas” and the “snow flake”. Manley has taken what is at the epicentre of its brand, intricate hand crafted leather embellishment and created a contemporary and powerful motif that conjures up the spirit of Christmas. The snow flake is central to the cups, the first cup has an illustration of a snowman with the Manley design featuring in its hat bauble and buttons, the second has a Reindeer with its nose in the Manley snowflake design and the third has a full cup with all the studded leather snowflakes creating a real Christmassy feel and Manley’s trademark textured detailing embellishment and popping tones. The festive colour palette is a blend of Manley’s signature vivacious metallic in old silver and pewter with Insomnia’s buoyant red and yellow.

“I wanted to design a beautiful Christmas cup range that conveys the happiness and spirit of the Christmas season in a way that resonates with Insomnia customers” said Emma Manley. “It was great to work with an iconic Irish brand such as Insomnia who always have an appetite for innovation and seek out opportunities of doing things differently”
