I wanted the design of the cup to reflect my love for polka dots and neon colours, but also my personal styled and my love with colour.
Having the opportunity to do this with Vittoria Fashion series was amazing. Nothing will ever beat a neon colour early in the morning drinking coffee.'
'I wanted to highlight the joy and vibrance that come with our daily rituals and play with how we can infuse more of that energy, that beauty and creativity, into how we show up to the world.'
