Cath Kidston AW15 Preview

Last year I went to my first Cath Kidston press day. I was absolutely blown away by all the lovely fashion and home items in the SS15 collection as well as the lovely way everything was displayed You can see my favourite items from the currant collection here. A couple of weeks ago I popped along to the AW15 press preview and was instantly transported to Christmas time. The press day was kitted out with its very own grotto and santa had turned up in style wearing an amazing Cath Kidston floral print suit.

Cath Kidston AW15 Press Day - ChristmasThere were so many lovely christmas decorations and gifts on display and I’m already excited to start decking the tree and putting up our stockings.
The fashion offerings were some of my favourites yet from Cath Kidston. When I worked there over a decade ago they were just starting out with their gorgeous clothing collections and as each year passes the collections seen to grow and become more fashion focussed. For vintage loving girls there are plenty of lovely dresses which manage to be both modern and nostalgic at the same time.

Cath Kidston AW15 Press Day - Floral Dresses

Cath Kidston AW15 Press Day - Rose Print Top
I am completely in love with these gorgeous rose prints. There are not only dresses but also little twinsets featuring skirts and crop tops.

Cath Kidston AW15 Press Day - Horse Print Dress
If you like novelty prints, then this horse print might be up your street. There is also an amazing penguin dress for winter and a navy dress in the classic cowboy print which I think will look really good with my wallpaper!

Cath Kidston AW15 Press Day - Embroidered Grey SweaterI have my eye on this gorgeous embroidered sweater which I would wear with a pair of vintage trousers or tucked in to a circle skirt.

Cath Kidston AW15 Press Day Tweed Coat
For cold winter days, this tweed coat would be absolutely perfect and it will go with everything!

Cath Kidston AW15 Press Day - Blue Fur Collar

Cath Kidston AW15 Press Day - Shawls

Cath Kidston AW15 Press Day - Squirrel and ScarfAnother warm addition would be one of these pretty scarves. I had one of these last season and they are big enough to be worn as a wrap or a shawl and they are so soft. I wore mine nearly every day and loved it.

Cath Kidston AW15 Press Day - Wooly Hat
I also really liked this little hat, which is so pretty and traditional and would be perfect for keeping my hair smooth in the cold damp weather.

Cath Kidston AW15 Press Day - Retro Striped Pyjamas
For the cold nights I love these pyjamas, they are inspired by classic vintage bedsheets. I’m sure most people are familiar with these classic candy stripes which still seem to be everywhere. I can remember my mum and dad having old sheets in this print when I was little.

Cath Kidston AW15 Press Day - Blue Floral SlippersThere were lots of lovely slipper designs and these cosy floral ones were my favourites.

Cath Kidston AW15 Press Day - Floral High Tops
I absolutely love Converse shoes, but my feet don’t! They are way too narrow for me. I find the Cath Kidston alternatives fit me so much better and these floral high tops would be perfect for casual days or to dress down a pretty dress. I’d go all out and wear them with brightly coloured tights.

    So much cuteness in one post. I think the patterns you have here are all so summery and cute too.

    I can see a lot of creative talent in the pictures. I have none, but admire those who do. My teenage daughter would love the shoes. I personally am a handbag addict. I would buy 1-2, I’m sure.

    One of everything, pretty, pretty please! 🙂

    I swear, there is no UK brand whose offerings I daydream about more than Cath Kidston’s.

    People can be so sniffy about Cath Kidston, but I genuinely like her stuff – she really knows how to do a good print. I like those 50s-style rose prints.

    Cath Kidston is a nice place with many vintage decorations. I love those beautiful floral clothes, tea cups, backpacks and bags.
