Cath Kidston has made vintage-inspired floral prints her signature style, and whatever they adorn, from stationery to radios, we love her iconic designs at Cotswold Trading. Started in 1993 with a small shop in London's Holland Park, Cath Kidston's brand has rapidly spread across the globe, with shops from England to Japan. Her range includes products across gifts and homeware, including collaborations with other well-known British brands. The fresh, workable style exuded by her designs has ensured their wide appeal to people of all ages.
Taking inspiration from the past, Kidston sought to move away from the modern minimalist look to something lighter, bolder and more fun. She uses not only tradition images like flowers but quirkier things like cars, cowboys and cherries to create a style that can't be imitated. Her patterns now symbolise for many the kitsch colourfulness of English fashion.
