Last week a good friend of mine insisted I try and get the inside scoop on Kettle & Kotch, a fantastic new brand which offers limited edition bandana styled watches. Their name is actually a clever combination of Cockney Rhyming Slang. For those who have left your rhyming slang dictionary at home, Kettle means “watch” and Kotch means “relax”. I can’t remember the last time I looked at my watch and relaxed so maybe this new accessory will magically bring about a new stress free living!
One thing I certainly don’t have to stress about is the fit! Each watch is easy to tie on in a simple double bow so it will custom fit any sized wrist. The most genius aspect of this particular watch is the fact that you really don’t even know it is one until you get up close! The dial and strap are made out of exactly the same fabric, thus disguising the watch face. The whole look reminds me of that uber chic trend when women were wrapping their wrists in Hermes scarves. Now you get the look with a purpose!
The first collection, ‘A Spoonful of Sugar’ is available in 10 limited edition designs to suit all styles; Fabulous, Gorgeous, Happy, Imagine, Amazing, Butterfly, Cheeky, Dolly, Jolly and Ethereal. There are only 100 watches available in each design so once they’re gone, that’s it, no second chance at that fabric!
So now I get to announce the best news…each watch is only £40! They have only just officially launched their website this morning and a little birdie told me the watches are already flying off the virtual shop shelves!
