Like Liberty, Cath Kidston is the quintessential British brand that carries a fine range of vintage prints on its lifestyle goods. It had just opened its first Singapore store at the Ion (B2-48) and at its official opening last evening, a 20% discount was given to invited guests. I was actually there more to accompany a friend and after a whole day of zipping across the island - from Comex at the Expo to a press conference for Nick Vujicic in Sentosa, I didn't think I could muster the energy to go for a shop opening, much less one that was filled to the brim with guests. But I did say OK initially and I did like vintage prints with flowers and mushrooms and polka dots and ...... What caught my eye was the little birdie prints, especially the one that had a little robin redbreast. Considering there was a 20% discount, I talked myself into getting that print on a tablet cover and a cross body bag. I'm as happy as a lark !
Also loved the little memento moment with real dressed up London guards standing by. Together with the paper props of an apron and a bag in those unmistakable prints, it was a defining Cath Kidston moment !
