Short answer: very. Not long after we did a post on build-a-cats did we stumble upon this in our mailboxes: kikki.K’s new gorgeous Sweet Collection that features hand-drawn illustrations of the cutest cat and pug characters. You don’t need to be an animal lover to fall head over heels in love with these — but if you are one, it’s definitely a collection where you’d want to own everything.
And thank goodness that this isn’t just confined to stationery — yeah we get the usual A5 Linen Notebook, with a subtle gold foil detailing, and the usual favourites of gel pens, notebooks, notepads, and journals (though we have to say, we’re loving the cat-shaped paper clips and adhesive notes set), but they’ve upped the playfulness here with pencil cases, leather key rings, and even enamel pins or wooden ornaments. Or, dishes, cups and a water bottle! The stuff that look great with all that stationery on your desk, of course.
You can be assured of the quality, say, the key ring being made from a beautiful two-toned leather with gold hardware, and more importantly, a keen sense of #deskgoals aesthetics since everything’s made with the harmonious colour palette of teal, cream and gold foil in mind.
And while kikki.K have long been advocates of putting your thoughts to pen and paper, you’ll be excited to know that these new characters will be able to invade your smartphone screens as well. For the first time, the Swedish brand has launched stickers for iMessage, where you can choose to express yourself from over 50 stickers based on motifs from this Sweet Collection — they’ve managed to retain the neat, hand-drawn quality of the illustrations on the mobile platform, with adorable flowers or cacti or teacups thrown in the mix too. Even if you’re not one for cutesy stickers, you gotta admit that they’re too pretty to resist flaunting.
kikki.K Sweet Collection, available at kikki.K ION, Raffles City, and online at kikki-k.com. The kikki.K stickers are now available on the App Store for iMessage.
