Today I would like to share with you the adorable Korean accessory brand Enakei! For girls who like very feminine pieces with a cute twist!
To start, if you look at art online a lot you may recognize the artwork of this brand’s artist! It gets swiped a lot online and used in free layouts, banners, bling gifs, etc around social networks like several other Korean artists. These beautiful drawings are by the artist Park Suran and divided into two categories~ Enakei which is a more cartoon-ish style and Jennie Enakei which is work that is more realistic (often drawn over real model photos) and has a softer airbrush feeling to it.
She has quite a range of girly styles and has done work for Korean clients like Cathy Cat, Laneige, SK telecom, Love Cat Paris, Daum card, and CD art for singer Min Hyo Rin to name a few. She has been working for several years now, so even if you simply google search her name you will get pages and pages of her beautiful art. She has been working since 2006 and Park Suran keeps busy for sure!
Enakei is also the name of her accessory brand which launched in 2011! This line features her softer style work on advertisements, bags, wallets, mirrors, etc alongside a line of cute hairpieces, pins, stockings, jewelry and more. Pricing is a little higher for this line, but not unreasonable at all~ things usually fall in the 6,000-19,000 won price rage for accessories and 50,000-70,000won for larger bags.
The jewelry is often brass with silver coating, and bags are all made with synthetic leather.
Being such a cute Korean brand, Enakei has its fair share of celebrity fans and appearances on shows!
Enakei Character Haul
One of my favorite things from this line are the plastic layered cute character pieces made with the Enakei artwork! Korea has lots of pretty bows and jewelery, but these are unique to the brand + rocked by celebs here so I just had to have a set! Right now they make 5 pin styles, so I bought one of each plus one style as a hair clip.
These are technically from the Enakei children’s line if you are looking for them, but whatever! They look awesome on hats, bags, shirts, straps, you name it ♥ how can you not like that adorable face and details on each of the girls? It is a very romantic and sweet kind of cute.
they are so much fun ^^ I love the little splash of cute color the pins add to my shirts or jackets
Nara uses them as well on his jacket for a kind of deco-dandy style!
Where to buy Enakei
Enakei has several locations throughout Korea, often these are dedicated sections in large family-friendly department stores like E-mart and always seem to have adorable unique displays for the brand and a wide range of products available VS what they sell online. Currently Enakei is sold at 15 locations, but the company has a goal to have 300 mini shops set up by 2015, these will most likely be in E-marts throughout Korea given the numbers stated.
My favorites from this brand are actually the hair pieces, bands, and clips that are intended for little kids. Korea is kind of like shopping for me back in the USA, I usually find more of what I like in the kids section vs the adult haha~ only here the section for younger shoppers has EXTRA cute things!
Since the retail locations have WAY more options vs what is shown on the official shop I highly recommend you visit the stores if you can. For online shopping I have great news though, the website has an international customer option in the shopping cart, so you can order things from the official Enakei store if you like!!
