Love18C Edition series x Melinda Looi@Melindalooi @Melindalooirtw @Love18chocolates #Love18chocolates #Love18CXMelindaLooi #MelindaLooi #PengYou
Kuala Lumpur, February 2021 - Melinda Looi Cruise 2021 Collection entitled PÉNGYǑU is an Ode to Friendship. Friendships do not happen only between friends, but also with our partners, family members, co-workers and acquaintances… old or new. We can even extend our friendship to people on the other side of the world whom we have never met and perhaps never will. “Friendship is like humanity. And in times like these, it’s important that we celebrate people; bring joy in any way we can.” explains the designer when asked about the name of her latest collection…
The launch of Love18C Edition Series, when Love18C meets Melinda Looi…Our passion for innovation and desire for challenges with different energetic personalities, across different industries, ignites the spark in the creation of art and sensory experience of chocolates to enable the launch of the Edition series – celebrating craftsmanship from both creative worlds. When chocolate meets fashion, Love18C bridges the gap to harness the creative inspirations from two different worlds, bonded with a common passion – to pursue the curation of a unique luxury series of artisan chocolate.
Love18C, the FIRST Malaysian handmade chocolate brand to win the World Chocolate Award has dabbled with Melinda Looi, the glamour of the fashion world, an award-winning internationally-known couture brand as an inspiration to mark the beginning of a new release of Love18C Edition series – Melinda Looi Edition No.1 – 9, a collection of 9 meaningful art chocolate creations. With Melinda Look, it transformed a sensorial experience – that of delighting in the finest Love18C chocolates – into high art. It has been specially curated in conjunction with Melinda Looi's Cruise 2021 Collection – PÉNGYǑU– which means friendship – and has been thoughtfully designed with Melinda’s close friends in mind; each flavour bringing to life their personalities.
