We are super excited to announce that Smiley has been nominated for not one, but two awards at the ‘B&LLAs’ this year! 😀

The B&LLAs is an event that recognises outstanding contributions to creating brand lifestyle driven licensing and this is something that the team at Smiley is hugely passionate about – creating completely innovative and unique products that ooze individuality and a bespoke approach to creating products that make the world a happier place.

Smiley was picked as a finalist for the Best Licensed Lifestyle Brand award on the back of our fantastic collaborations, innovations, activations (and many other -ations!) in 2016, with some of the most iconic designers and brands around the globe, including Moschino, Moncler, Joshua Sanders, and Giuseppe Zanotti (to name but a few!) 😀

We are proud to be nominated alongside some of the biggest lifestyle names, such as the Discovery Channel, Men’s Health, and VW.

 This killer co-creation went from strength to strength in 2016, with two new collections including Anya’s first Menswear range, accessories and in-store customisation, several pop up stores in countries around the world, a concept space within the new Selfridges London Accessories Hall, and the opening of a brand new landmark store at Melrose Place in LA! Not bad eh? 😛

Smiley was nominated for this category alongside some instantly recognisable brands, such as Coca Cola x Skinnydip, TFL by Nikelab, and the V&A Clarks shoes collection, but none of these can boast the same kind of success that results from a brand and designer sharing the same ethos, art direction, and DNA – Anya Hindmarch and Smiley are a match made in heaven! 😉
