Ok so its been a few weeks since I published a blog post … but I promise its been worth it! As today sees the launch of my new Luxe Collection of wedding invitations and stationery!
I’ve been so excited to share these for a long time now. It has taken most of this year to finalise the designs, source some beautiful materials and get the website ready but its finally done and I’m over the moon with the results. You can now purchase the Luxe Collection, along with all the standard ranges, on my website at http://knotsandkisses-co-uk.stackstaging.com/beta/product-category/luxe-collection/
I have started the Luxe Collection with 3 ranges … Blush & Gold, Stormy Skies and Simply Elegant … although I have already got lots of ideas of new ranges to add in the new year!
The idea behind the Luxe Collection was to create a capsule collection of designs which still encompassed my love of pattern and typography but gave couples the opportunity to really go that extra mile with their stationery and incorporate extra thick 700gsm beautiful cotton soft card and finishes such as gold foiling and handpainted silk ribbons. I had spoken to many couples over the last couple of years who loved the feel of stationery as much as I did and were all about those extra special finishes. Although I spent many weeks and months picking out what I considered a beautiful quality card for my existing ranges that would give clients a beautiful finish at a affordable price … designing the Luxe ranges has given me the opportunity to go that extra mile.
I have been wanting to use gold foil on a collection of stationery for some time now after loving using it on a few bespoke designs so this was the perfect opportunity. I’ve also been working with the amazing Kate Cullen http://www.katecullen.co.uk/ who has hand painted some beautiful silk ribbons for me to use on the new collection. Currently a gorgeous smoky silvery grey – but I’m hoping to design new collections soon which incorporate more of her beautiful ribbons … and of course the beauty of hand painted ribbons is that each invitation is unique and its also easily possible to create a bespoke colour for clients as well.
I hope you love the collection as much as I do. I’ll be sharing more details of each individual range over the next few days.
