British lifestyle designer Katie Alice has been commissioned to create an exclusive range of candles, reed diffusers and mugs for Candlelight.
The designer, whose collections are inspired by her love of vintage florals, has brought her renowned nostalgic style to the ‘Katie Alice’ collection, which will be revealed by Katie Alice herself at the Candlelight stand at the Spring Fair 2020 (NEC, Birmingham 1-6 February. Hall 3, Stand H20 to J21)
The collection features three exclusive ranges and fragrances, each with Katie Alice’s trademark floral designs, available in attractive wax filled pots, reed diffusers and mugs, with complementary packaging available. The collection features ‘Wild Apricity’ (warmth of the winter sun) where Katie took her inspiration from wandering through the market of her hometown of Stamford in Lincolnshire on chilly Friday mornings in Autumn. This range features muted tones of blush and mauve, which will enhance any home.
The Vintage Indigo range features an attractive blue design, with the renowned florals displayed on wax filled pots, mugs and reed diffusers that provide a stylish addition to any home.
The third fragrance is Bohemian Spirit, which features a contemporary ochre shade to the mugs, candles and reed diffusers, with striking complementary packaging.
Candlelight’s Sales Director Debbie Isles explains: “We’re delighted to have secured our first licensed range, with Katie Alice. Her designs are simply stunning and their aesthetics perfectly complement our candles, mugs and reed diffusers. The range captures the very best of vintage design, which is still very much on trend in homewares and we’re expecting it to be very popular with retailers. There is something for everyone in this collection from one of England’s most renowned up and coming designers.”
Katie Alice explains: “This was a great opportunity to partner with Candlelight to create this exciting new range of candles and reed diffusers. My collections take their inspiration from my obsession with vintage florals from various eras and my passion for bringing long forgotten artwork back to life. I believe this new range of candles and reed diffusers will appeal to those who are looking to incorporate natural, elegance into their homes.”
