Following on from the unicorn, flamingo and mermaid trends of last year, the supermarket chain has developed a range of llama-themed homeware, including mugs, bedding, pyjamas, throws, cushions, runners, strollers and bags.
Lucy said she has loved the South American animals “since I was little. I keep hearing that they’re will be the next big trend – and I for one couldn’t be happier!
“There’s something about llamas that just immediately puts a smile on your face. Maybe it’s because we don’t see many of them over here which gives them a rare, elusive quality. Or maybe it’s because they look cuddly, are a bit quirky and have a good cheeky expression – and that in turn makes us smile.
“We’ve seen some strong South and Central American influences in trends recently. The bright colours they use in the home and in fashion are still very influential, with things like cacti, flamingos, sugar skulls and Aztec patterns. Llamas are a natural progression of that, featuring increasingly across fashion, greeting cards and stationery.”
