Chilly’s is proud to present their latest collaboration in the Artist Series, with a London-based illustrator Joey Yu.

In the latest limited-edition collection, the first of 2022, the reusable bottle brand has partnered with an artist, illustrator, and animator Joey Yu, who has created original designs to adorn the classic stainless steel bottles. Chilly’s has been on the forefront of the sustainability movement for over a decade. Working with independent creatives as part of the Artist Series, they are giving a platform to incredible talent and introducing their work to a new audience.

Yu has decorated the reusable bottles with two designs – Lake Bathers and City Larks. The illustrations depict scenes of relaxing summer days. Yu describes the designs:

“Lake Bathers is about escapism. The design evokes a hot sunny day with friends. Dipping in for a swim then drying off whilst lounging around! The City Larks bottle scene is more familiar. I’m grateful for the green spaces that exist in London and I love the community energy. This artwork reflects those sweet moments.”

Yu is a London-based illustrator with an impressive online platform. Having graduated from Kingston University in 2017, she has developed a unique, inimitable style that translates into beautiful drawings, prints and other products.

Yu says she enjoyed the collaboration with Chilly’s “because something’s created that I wouldn’t be able to do on my own.” She is most proud of her work “reaching out to people around the world. It feels magical!”

To celebrate the launch of the Lake Bathers and City Larks limited edition bottles, Chilly’s are giving away 2 bottles, one of each design, to two lucky winners. Details can be found on

Notes to editor:

Chilly’s was founded in 2010 by James Butterfield and Tim Bouscarle, with the aim of reducing the use of plastic bottles, giving people a stylish, reusable option for staying hydrated. Chilly’s creates modern products for people on-the-go, combining the convenience of a single-use bottle with the technology of a traditional flask. The bottles keep liquids cold for up to 24 hours, and hot for up to 12 hours. Chilly’s have now expanded the range of reusable products to include cups, food containers, and accessories.

Joey Yu limited edition is available in two designs, Lake Bathers and City Larks. The bottles are 500ml standard size, retailing at £29, with an option to purchase an additional Sports Lid (£3), or a carabiner (£3). The bottles are leak proof and handwash only. All Chilly’s products are made from quality materials, including high-grade stainless steel and advanced powder coating, with no BPAs, and are leak proof.
