Our Summer Preview
As Spring gently turns into summer, the days are getting longer and nature is giving us heavenly
gifts of blossoming trees, rosebuds blooming, crops of salad leaves and beans bursting from
their pods – blissfully blissfully unaware that we humans are living most extraordinary lives.
Like the rest of the world, I am in a haze of too much information, at the same time too little.
It is hard to switch off but I am learning, albeit slowly, that we must, as safely as possible, continue.
Continue to be beautiful, to live life beautifully and as much as we can, keep calm and carry on.
We have had an astounding reception to our spring collection, for which we thank you, and now
we introduce you to summer, with glorious colour, gentle stripes and charming shapes and prints.
Cabbages & Roses continue to flourish with grateful thanks to our tiny factory where all our
garments are sewn by safely distanced sewers.
As usual all our clothes are made in limited quantities, and if there is something you particularly like and wish to own, please contact us so that you can be put on the waiting list.
Remember, there will be parties, and weddings, and celebrations one day, I hope soon.
Stay safe and careful.
