Weighed down by the gloomy weather and impatient for the sunshine and warmth of Springtime? Cath Kidston's Spring Summer Collection is here to lift your spirit up with the many stunning patterns inspired by scenes from a Day Trip around the countryside of the United Kingdom. Here are some highlights from this collection.
A UK day trip cannot be complete without a visit to the famous Regent's Park in London. The print to the of London Park collection with hand-drawn details of ducks on the Boating Lake. Stark dark lines of branches of the willow trees against the muted blue of the sky and water, dotted by vibrant blossoms of reds, blues, and greens. The London Park Reverse Coated Tote (HK$650) is like a sophisticated painting that brings a leisurely scene to life.
When talking about Cath Kidston, we'd at once think of the elaborate and tasteful floral patterns on their wide range of handbag designs. The Large Anemone Stripe collection takes the traditional floral element of wide-open blooms of Anemone and elevates it by lining it against a background of navy blue and white stripes, creating this dashing print. This Large Anemone Stripe Shoulder Tote Bag (HK$750) brings to mind a functional summer beach bag with an added touch of femininity, making it the ideal bag for any day trip.
Another unique print would be the Little Village. It's a design made out of many minuscule blocks of houses is packed onto the fabric to form the scene of a quiet UK village. When seen from a distance, the print creates an effect of textured fabric in a minimal colour palette of navy, white and dots of red. But upon closer inspection, one will notice the details to the houses as well as a few vehicles on the roads. Taking the whole collection to another level, the chic and adorable Little Village House Clutch (HK$750) allows you to hold a quaint little England house in your hand as you stroll around downtown.
These are but a tiny fraction of Cath Kidston's Spring Summer Day Trip collection. Visit one of the Cath Kidston stores or browse through their online shop to see the rest.
