Fossil x Eley Kishimoto = The Brightest Fashion Collab of the Season
Holiday shopping season is kicking into high gear, and what better way to celebrate than with one of our favorite things — a gorgeously-designed fashion collaboration! Fossil recently announced their collab with the patron saints of print, Eley Kishimoto, and our eyes are turning into hearts like our favorite emoji as we fawn over the 19-piece collection.
Both companies share a passion for pattern and color, and we are so glad they finally got their wish (although our wallets may not be too thrilled). But even our fondest memories of Fossil aren’t nearly as chic as the offerings here.
The collection includes wallets, totes, clutches, card cases, iPad cases, scarves and gloves — all with a retro, vintage look and so many pops of color you may need to pick up some shades.
One of the standout pieces from the collection is the Retro Timer Watch. The timepiece — available in brown, white or black and either a leather or plastic band — is inspired by mid-century design, more specifically the simple, charming ol’ analog kitchen timer your grandma had back in the day and then you just paid way too much for at a flea market (admit it ;).
We might seriously be considering snagging more than a couple pieces… beyond just our holiday nice list (HELP US!), but what can we say? When you take a timeless company, add a splash of design + more beautiful color and patterns than we know what to do with, our budget has to make do.
What item(s) from this colorful collaboration are you planning on picking up? Let us know in the comments below.
