Earlier this summer, Paulette our chief creative, took a brief, but well earned break down on the British Riviera in sunny Devon.
Never completely 'off duty', Paulette, always on the look out for inspiration, stumbled across a proverbial gold mine in the form of Coleton Fishacre, a 1920's National Trust property, originally built as a holiday home for the then owners of the Savoy Hotel in London.
It's beautifully preserved art deco interior acting like a lens, back to the days of the 'roaring twenties' and the whole 'upstairs / downstairs' era of family life.
Abound with bygone treasures & wonderful period clothing, Paulette had at last found her Eden but very fortunately for us, security eventually managed to prise her hands free from the balcony rail and sent her back to Kinky HQ with a mind brimming with ideas!
So... say hello to the first of many, our decadent art deco kimono which we've called 'Wild Poppy'.
They say, 'save the best till last' ...we say...'why on earth wait!'
This beautiful, vintage print, soft cotton poplin kimono, with it's generous wrap over & 3/4 length sleeves is simply adorable in every sense of the word.
A true signature heirloom piece, inspired by the love of all things splendid & decadent, 'Wild Poppy' seemed such an appropriate name for this beautiful, timeless garment.
Hand made specifically to order & presented in a gorgeous 'Ella & Me' gift box, delicately wrapped in tissue paper, with a special thank you card, a picture of the person who made it and a little note explaining how you’ve helped to secure skilled employment for future generations in the UK.
