Kakao translates to ‘hot chocolate’ in Danish and much like this delectable delight Kakao by K aims to hit the pleasure mark with its wide range of designs. Hot trends, affordable boutique prices and a friendly service are all part of the shopping experience.
Ultimately, Kakao by K is focused on being a relaxed place for women to shop and browse. Danish owner Karina’s care-free, design spirit shines through her happy and welcoming boutique; so don’t be surprised if she cracks open the bubbly when you pop in, as looking after guests is another exciting ingredient of the Kakao by K philosophy.
The Urbanity team attended the opening ceremony of the new jewellery collection by Karina-the boutique’s owner- and mingled with other local bloggers such as Satisfashion and Edinburgh Etiquette while we munched on canapés and sipped homemade cocktails. We simply couldn’t resist a few cheeky purchases; we fell in love with the geometric shapes and delicate metals. Our favourite was this stunning hexagonal necklace, which so effortlessly compliments both formal and casual outfits.
We found out about the company through Edinburgh Fashion Week- Karina showcased some of the most covetable pieces from the store alongside other talented designers while we worked backstage. Ruth’s previous blog, The Question Cove, features an in-depth interview with the lovely Karina.
