Chanii B celebrates in style!
I've been busy visiting our makers in Portugal, checking the samples and production of our new lines for AW16 / SS17 ... But I couldn't go another day without writing an update for the blog, especially since we have had a birthday to celebrate!
Happy birthday to us! Chanii B is officially FOUR years old - I can hardly believe it! We threw a stylish party to celebrate, coinciding with the "Music in the City", which kicked off the Bath International Music Festival. Thanks to all of you who joined us - we had a fabulous spread of canapés (provided by our neighbouring Argentinian restaurant, CAU - thank you guys!), washed down with plenty of Prosecco, followed by delicious miniature sponge sandwich cakes ... You'll never guess what colour they were?! Fuchsia pink of course - and they tasted divine, made by our very own Chloe.
Our lovely customers also enjoyed special discounts across the whole range as well as free gifts with every purchase - have you seen our glamorous handmade leather-and-feather key rings?
The birthday celebrations continued right through to Sunday in Bath and also in our new Bristol store.
Speaking of Bristol ... If you haven’t yet visited our new store in Cabot Circus, you really should plan a trip. It's a lovely big sunny shop, just opposite Carluccio's restaurant in the heart of Bristol's most stylish shopping quarter. The size of the store means we can carry more lines, including some of our real classic designs, and you might just find something you haven’t found in Bath.
We are also showcasing the gorgeous clothing brand we discovered on our travels, ASX2. Their designs are all original, just like Chanii B, so if you are looking for something different and super cute to wear, you should head to Bristol!
The weather has been beautiful the last few days - I hope you all have your summer-ready toes out?! I'm currently sporting bright blue nails, and I’m stepping out in the stunning "Piston" sandal, which features one of our gorgeous new foil leathers.
Foils and metallics are bang on trend this season, and the great thing about Piston is how the colours and tones change when they catch the light, from blue to purple to green, so they really do go with anything!
Combined with the super-comfortable and easy-to-wear design, Piston is the perfect summer sandal you can throw on for any occasion, smart or casual. It's also available in a white leather / pink foil, as well as several shades of snakeskin and metallic leather - each one guaranteed to turn heads and have people asking you "Where did you get those shoes?!" I am asked all the time. X
