Cath Kidston

“Opening the first shop was quite a risk as there was nothing quite like it at the time. It was either old antique shops or high street modern. I guess we kick started the trend for modern vintage” ~ Cath Kidston, Founder ------------ Inspired by growing up in the British countryside and a love of vintage prints, Cath Kidston opened her first shop in West London in 1993. Over 21 years later, we still take our inspiration from quirky British vintage finds, designing colourful prints that turn modern, practical products into something witty, fresh and fun. Our unique range of everyday, practical products is designed to brighten up your day. Online at CATHKIDSTON.COM and in over 180 stores in 14 different countries (including UK, France, Spain, Japan & Korea), today’s bestselling range spans bags, accessories, homeware, fashion and things for the kids. Welcome to the Home of Modern Vintage.
