“To spread happiness by turning an everyday essential into a colorful design piece with a rigid standard of ultimate quality, craftsmanship and creativity.”–This is the concept behind Happy Socks, the Swedish brand that offers the quirkiest and most stylish socks out in the market.
I first spotted Happy Socks when I was shopping around Hong Kong. I remember cracking a smile as I stared at their colorful patterns and thought to myself, “what an appropriate choice of brand name for these cuties.” You see, they may just be socks but trust me when I say, they can instantly brighten the gloomiest and laziest outfits. Just take a look at my outfit below. I was feeling under the weather yesterday but had to do so many errands so this lightweight knit sweater from Rakuten was the only thing my sick body was willing to wear. I threw on the lousiest looking shorts I could find and voila, my cozy and comfortable look was complete. Clearly, I badly needed a dose of happiness. Thank God Happy Socks are now available locally (see branches here) so I was able to add a quick pick-me-upper to my outfit. I paired them with my favorite man shoes, grabbed my new camera bag from Johansen Camera bags (who provides super quick shipping from their shipping centers in the US, UK, Hong Kong and Australia) and I was out the door–with just a little happy skip in my walk.
