Cath Kidston, standing the test of time

20 Years on and Cath Kidston is still standing the test of time. After making chintzy florals chic and having all of us fall in love with ditsy flower prints, colourful spots and candy stripes, this lady is again leading the field. Celebrating 20 years in the business is now mean feat and this AW 14 collection is literally looking back in time. Prints and designs are more retro inspired than vintage, definitely more statement pieces then blending in with the rest of your 50’s wardrobe or eclectic home. Everyday items like newspaper print and clocks are incorporated on textiles and fashion items like dresses and bags and cushions and ceramics. There are still plenty of playful elements in this collection, I especially love the ‘Stanley lamp’ and also the ‘Stanley pie funnel’. My favourite print this season is the ‘Townhouses‘ and the navy background of this design makes it so chic. Have a look below, I hope you like it as much as I do.
