The team at Cath Kidston have managed to wow us again with their new SS18 collection. Only this time, it’s unlike anything we’ve seen before. It’s no secret that the team here at Yours are animal-mad, so when we heard about this new range we just HAD to get our paws on it!
We’ve always had a soft spot for Cath Kidston’s signature shabby chic designs, but now, they’ve brought something new to the table – quite literally. The new Park Wildlife Home Collection features a charming selection of hand drawn animal prints, largely inspired by our British critters, in the form of mugs, glasses, plates, bowls, egg cups and more. We particularly love the pop of lime green and orange on the parakeet and the elegant swan against the midnight blue background.
In addition to this, the foliage design of Cath Kidston's Mornington Leaves print is reminiscent of vintage floral patterns with a modern twist, featuring bees, ladybirds and butterflies entangled within forest green stems - bringing a touch of the British countryside, indoors.
Our favourite pick has to be this adorable set of mugs – we think they’d make a great gift for any wildlife lover who loves a good cuppa.
Can’t decide which print you prefer most? Mix and match! Both designs work perfectly together and would look especially lovely laid out for a spot of afternoon tea or summer time dinner parties. Offering a novelty touch to any kitchen, these tableware sets deserve to be admired from the safety of cabinets or shelving in-between entertaining.
What’s more, is that this enchanting range doesn’t just stop at tableware and crockery. There are lots of lovely furnishings you can display around your home to bring everything together, including cushions, plant holders, jars, candles, fabric, diffusers and even wallpaper. We’re not ashamed to admit that we’d have our whole house kitted out in this range, if we could…
Our overall verdict: We love how this collection brings British wildlife and nature into the home in such a fun and elegant way. These pieces may come with a price tag, but with such timeless designs, it’s worth investing.
It’s a YES from us, Cath Kidston!
