Autumn/Winter Prints

Our Autumn/Winter collection launches online in just a few weeks so we thought we would show you a sneak peak of the new prints and share the inspiration behind them. Again we have selected an organic cotton base for our own designs, it's slightly heavier than the summer poplin but just as soft, and all printed here in the UK.

'Tile Print' & 'Heart Stripe' in winter cherry

Our print designer grew up in Stoke-on-Trent, AKA The Potteries, home of the British pottery industry. Kate is a great lover of china, tiles and teacups and often finds inspiration in the patterns and designs on pottery. A trip to Porto with it's buildings covered in tiles became the inspiration for this season's 'Tile Print'. We tried out several colourways but in the end we settled on a pretty pink and pale grey, pictured above. It's also a small nod to the Seventies styling seen on the AW womenswear catwalks!

Our 'Heart Stripe' design has a much more straight-forward story as it began life as a doodle on Valentine's Day, and who doesn't love a heart print? The design is subtle enough to pair with our other prints and comes in too colourways, winter cherry and bright navy. One of our favourite pieces from the new collection are the reversible trousers with paper-bag waistband. Softest brushed cotton in denim blue on one side and our heart print in bright navy on the reverse, they are sure to be a wardrobe staple this autumn!

We're already started work on our Spring/Summer prints with a guest designer and they are looking beautiful, some fresh florals and ditsy graphic prints that we think you will love.

Autumn/Winter is launching online in two weeks time, watch this space!
