'Bachelorette' Kaitlyn Bristowe Launches Collection With Designer Chelcey Tate
After back-to-back runs on The Bachelor and The Bachelorette, the respective Season 19/Season 11 star has been quite busy. In other words, she knows how to strike when the iron's hot, because get this: former Bachelorette Kaitlyn Bristowe is launching a collection, and it includes much more than just apparel.
The new collection dropped today, and it includes T-shirts, tank tops, mugs, water bottles, as well as a print range. She co-designed thfase collection with Louisville-based designer/blogger Chelcey Tate, and both parties have gushed over their excitement for the new collaboration via social media — as Bristowe posted on Instagram, "We're launching a collection of prints, apparel + drink ware that we're both really proud of."
The aforementioned prints, apparel, and drinkware all come emblazoned with cute little phrases that we can all relate to, such as "The snuggle is real," "Messy bun + get 'er done," and "The little engine that literally couldn't even," as well as plain-spoken old standbys like "Drink more wine," and "Haters gonna hate." All the different phrases come printed in eye-catching hand-lettered designs created by Tate, and some even come adorned with little illustrations. All in all, it makes for quite the relaxed and wearable collection — perfect for a chic outing at the gym, or thematically, watching The Bachelorette with your friends.
All in all, it seems like quite the match made in heaven between a reality TV star and a graphic designer — their collection has a fun, lowkey vibe. Let's take a look at some of their must-haves.
