Every collection we create here at Cath Kidston includes our trademark mix of print styles: scenic designs and colourful spots are two of our trademarks but we’re most famous for our iconic florals. So, when creating a special capsule collection in collaboration with Disney that welcomes Winnie-the-Pooh and friends to our world, we made sure to include all our favourite print styles. Here’s how we picked the perfect flowers for Pooh bear!
Our spots play a starring role alongside Disney’s characters in Balloon Spot print and A Day in the Hundred Acre Wood is a sweet scenic design set in our version of Pooh’s iconic forest home, but we needed a floral to complete our Winnie-the-Pooh print story. With 23 blooming years of designs to look back on, we were spoilt for choice! Our designers had fun experimenting with colour, character and scale whilst finding flowers fit for the world’s most famous bear. We decided to use a mini floral so we could scale the characters down accordingly and create something subtle and delicate to sit alongside our bigger, bolder Disney x Cath Kidston designs. We landed upon Bramley Sprig, a finely-detailed spriggy floral that was first designed for SS14.
Having Disney’s extensive library of individual, hand-drawn illustrations to choose from allowed our designers to give this familiar floral a fresh new lease of life: tiny, playful Winnie-the-Pooh and Piglet have been transported into our bright and cheerful world. They’re cleverly interspersed amongst delicate, ditsy Bramley Sprig blooms – see them swing from, clamber over, sniff and pick the colourful flowers. The cute mini scale, intricate detail and multi-directional layout of Bramley Sprig and Friends print give it a lovely sense of fun.
The first of the two colourways we’ve created is a fresh blue that sits back with Balloon Spot in the same shade, used on mix and match oilcloth accessories plus nightwear and cute kitchen bits. Pooh and Piglet are also pretty in pink on our Bramley Sprig and Friends colourway for kids accessories.
