There is something about Cath Kidston that screams Summer at the top its voice. Maybe it is the kitsch prints and patterns, or the use of shiny, wipe clean materials that make them picnic and festival friendly, or maybe it is the cute boxy styles that mean they always have a ladylike edge. Whatever it is, a Cath Kidston bag is top of your Summer shopping list.
This season the brand has the perfect backpacks for traveling light, whether to Glastonbury or Glyndebourne. I just love the chintzy tea rose print that is perfectly girly and feminine. There are wipe clean day bags with 50s polka dots that would jazz up the simplest of jeans and t-shirt combinations, and are light enough to use every day without breaking the wrist. And then there are the travel bags. I am definitely getting the London holdall that packs into a tiny wallet – this is the perfect bag to put into your suitcase to give you an extra option when you need extra baggage on your way back.
Do you own a Cath Kidston bag – are you as obsessed with them as I am?
