We’ve captured the English countryside just in time for spring with Meadow print. Join us on a sunny stroll through our wildflower Meadow and take in this fresh, airy floral with a twist.
Everyone knows us for our classic rosy prints, but this season we’ve been experimenting with brand new blooms to create a collection inspired by British gardens. To put a beautiful wildflower Meadow into print, our designer chose a mix of colourful English wildflowers, drawing them up to resemble traditional botanical illustrations, before arranging them in a scattered layout to give our design a relaxed, natural look.
For a final flourish; an extra shot of personality and CK wit, we added wild raspberries and an array of little insects. Look closely and you’ll spy honeybees, dragonflies, ladybirds and butterflies buzzing and fluttering, giving the print energy and movement. These elements appear elsewhere in the print collection too – check out Wild Raspberries and Wildlife Ditsy for more Meadow inspiration.
The wild, outdoorsy feel of the print lends itself perfectly to picnicware. Create your own al fresco spread at home using Meadow melamine pieces, and pack up picnics big and small with everything from bento holders and cool bags to picnic rucksacks and wine coolers. You can bring the outdoors in too, with crisp cotton aprons and tea towels, mugs and more for the kitchen.
For fashion, we’ve given the print a sophisticated twist with a rich charcoal background. Printed on sheer chiffon, it lends a dressy feel to a chic layered shirtwaist dress and shell top, but the lightness of the fabric means these versatile pieces can be worn at any time of year. Little ones can get dressed up too, with a pretty square neck frock and skirt in soft dusky pink Meadow.
