I’m excited to share with you Kip&Co’s biggest collaboration yet, together with Graeme Base, they have joined forces to create a colourful collection of kids and baby bedding as well as accessories inspired by Animalia, Graeme Base’s 1986 book about a joyful journey through the animal kingdom. I love a good collaboration and have shared my love for the Kip&Co brand on my blog before. The girls are constantly thinking outside the square, bringing to our families collaborative collections that are timeless, encouraging our kids to dream of far away lands and let their imagination run wild! This latest collection has literally stopped me in my tracks taking me back to my childhood … I loved Graeme’s book, as have my children.
The detailed drawings created by Graeme have been etched in the memories of children since the 80’s … now our kids are lucky enough to dream away while curling up in this truly magical range! I honestly can’t pick a favourite from the range as the entire collection, it’s spot on!
The NEW Kip&Co Animalia Collection
Graeme took three years to create ‘Animalia’ and inspired a generation of kids in the 80s. We know the book struck a chord the world over, even reaching number one on the New York Times best seller list and featured in a 40-foot billboard on Sunset Boulevard. The ‘Kip’ girls share with me “Graeme believes the book has had such enduring success because of its broad market.”
“Animalia is a book for everyone, it was never intended for any particular age, and I think that’s why it still has such a strong connection with so many” he said. Over 30 years later, and the magic of Graeme’s zany zig-zagging zesty tale continues to be an iconic story for inquisitive minds around the globe. Collaborating with Kip&Co was the perfect way to bring the whimsical book to life once again, and for the first time in bedding and homewares.
“I think Kip&Co’s colour, aesthetic and style is the perfect for Animalia” said Graeme. Kate Heppell, Kip&Co co-founder said “We were all read Animalia as little tikes, and loved getting lost in the magical drawings night after night. It’s a tradition we’ve passed on to our kids and now it is one of their absolute favourites. We’re excited to bring you our coolest collaboration yet, Kip&Co x Animalia”.
As you can see by the images I have shared the collection includes kids bedding, cushions and sleepwear ( how beautiful are those PJ’s … ) , baby bedding, play mats and swaddles, and wicked Santa sacks.
The collection is available for a short time only from 24 October 2017 … shop it HERE and selected stockists.
