Everyday is Caturday when it comes to the fashion and beauty accessories from Catseye London. The UK-launched brand kicked off in 2004 as a division of Jellycat, a boutique toy company, and ever since, it has been launching two new collections a year including some very animal-centric tongue-in-cheek styles. What can we say, they’re simply purrfect.
While featuring a wide range of designs of everything from vintage-dressed ladies to fairytale frogs, Catseye London continues to count their feline-inspired items as top sellers. “It’s amazing how animals are so broadly accepted, and I think that’s especially true with cats—they exude so much personality,” Danell Gibbins, President of Jellycat, tells InStyle. In fact, their ‘Tabby Cat’ design has remained in every collection since the very start, repositioned in a number of different goodies including coin purses, cosmetic bags, and nail care sets. “It’s certainly rewarding to start with something that abstract and freeform to end up creating so many different products.”
Kitten on Green’ design, we added a really bold emerald color to match the feline’s eyes, and it just pops,” says Gibbins. “And one of our newly launched items is the ‘Cat With Flowers’ design, where we amplified the colors on the gray cat and red flowers.”
