Cath Kidston – The home of modern vintage
Cath Kidston is turning 25 years old this year. Her first store opened in 1993. It’s amazing to think that her unique, colourful and bold prints are just as popular now as they were back then. I love this quintessentially British lifestyle brand and probaly even more so, now that I live on the other side of the world! I enjoy their fresh take on design, as each season changes, from collaborating with Disney to their current anniversary collection. The red, white and blue theme is gorgeous and totally sold it for me.
So I couldn’t help but treat myself to this skirt as soon as I saw it advertised. I love it! It’s a limited edition piece and I feel a real statement skirt. It has a multitude of colourful pleats which create a beautiful kaleidoscope effect. I think this is the perfect party skirt! Another rather nice feature is the metallic waistband (which is elasticated, so that’s handy!) In these photos, I have paired the skirt with a grey short sleeved sweatshirt, but I feel that anything plain would go really well with it. Cath Kidston have some really amazing pieces in their 25th Birthday Collection, from handbags to flag cushions; tea towels to notebooks, so be sure to check them out for a collectible piece to mark the occasion.
Their London prints though, they always steel my heart. My children have the Cath Kidston London print pyjamas, bags, pens, purses, socks, cups, backpacks etc. I can never get enough and regularly check out what’s new.
Have a great week.
