Kip + Co 24 Karat AW17

Alex, Kate and Hayley launched Kip&Co in 2012 offering bright, colourful and beautiful bedding to the local market - fast forward to today and their vibrant lifestyle brand is growing in leaps and bounds. The latest season of Kip&Co products are more action-packed and vibrant than ever. Titled '24 Karat', the range delivers bursts of shimmer and is packed with their signature bright pops of colour and magnetic pattern. The new collection includes French linen and velvet bedding range with strong sea greens and stormy blues, mixed with nectar, peach sorbet and deep rose, combined with punchy prints and sensuous textures. Way too good to resist.

Kip&Co is evolving and growing, introducing new products to the mix with each new collection. This season they've introduced denim bedding, expanded their coloured translucent cutlery collection with soup labels, serving spoons and salt + pepper dishes. We spoke to co-owner and designer Alex van der Sluys about the latest range.

“We love to surround ourselves with colour, it’s so important to us - it’s such a simple way to create a positive space that makes you feel good and inspires the imagination.”
