Walking through Top Drawer at Olympia London, we were on the search for a Tea cup brand that would appeal for a man as well as us ladies. So I pushed hubby to the front with a clear instruction; 'Just tell me when you see something you like!'.
Now my husband isn't attracted by vintage, he isn't drawn towards tradition... he just likes what he likes and that is it. He has impeccable taste but I think that is down to his apparent OCD more than anything. Clean lines, soft tones & nothing brash, classy all the way for Mr Cool.
After about 2 hours and 2 lunch stops later... (he's 'bulking'...again) I see my strapping young husband wandering off like a lone duckling towards a stand full of porcelain cups... could it be...!?
'These are cool, I like these, we need these'. And that was it. He was right too, straight off the bat like that they were perfect. Along with 'Miss Etoile' we had two super strong brands to launch HoneyBella.
So I introduce to you, 'Keith Brymer Jones' (now of BBC fame), Keith sums our love for his Teacups perfectly...
'My design philosophy is a simple one; I like to create stylish yet simple products that are pleasing to the eye and, above all, are practical in the modern home and make people happy! For me, less is more!'
We have started with four different Tea cups in our collection; 'Me, Me, Me', 'Bestie', 'Daddy' & a 'His & Hers' double cup set. These are all made as bucket mugs so you really do get a nice big cup of Tea every time.
Since launching, the response for these has been amazing. With more designs coming this Spring, we hope to keep adding to our collection of Keith Brymer Jones very soon!
