Cabbages and Roses – it's a brand that effortlessly captures British heritage through and through. The label has a slightly whimsical nature about it, that began with the production of the Bees fabric that was created to ‘fulfil the need for something beautiful and practical.' And, that's exactly what this brand is about. Flaunting five core values: beauty, simplicity, longevity, integrity and sustainability, Cabbages and Roses is a label you'll want to feature in your wardrobe this Spring/Summer'14 and for many seasons to come.
For SS14 the brand showcases it's signature traditional-yet-individual flavour that is so significant to it's clothes. Comfy oversized knits are teamed-up with classic white shirts and wellington boots; long, vintage-style faded floral dresses are born to be worn on the beach, while the Eliza Coat (which I'm already quite in love with) calls to be worn with a pair of this season's towering, minimalistic two-strap sandals and a pure white shift. It's a very easy-going collection that features many reliable wardrobe pieces for day-to-evening-to-night. I adore the clean white silhouettes of their oversized, slouchy dresses, the simple Breton tees, sweet plaid shirts and cute pinafore-style dresses that can be toughened-up by being layered over a white shirt.
Cherished for their quality and individuality, their products hint of British eccentricity and humour. Their silhouettes are effortlessly feminine and hark back to a girlish demeanour, calling to be worn with a straw hat or a bohemian floral headband. You'll feel free in this collection, and I think everyone needs a little bit of Cabbages and Roses in their life... don't you agree?
And get this! Their new store has just opened on 121-123 Sydney Street in Chelsea!
