Celia Birtwell x Uniqlo

Celia Birtwell recently teamed up with Uniqlo, Japanese high street chain extraordinaire, to do a range of printed pieces. An original of the London fashion scene since working with Ossie Clark in the 1960s and 70s, her juxtaposing prints were made famous by the likes of Jimi Hendrix, the Rolling Stones and Marianne Faithfull. The range will bring her work to a fresh new generation. Pajamas, blouses and leggings are re-imagined with re-mastered archive prints, and prices start at the spiffing £9.90.

I went to the launch night on Oxford Street, which was packed. The prints looked a little mad all sitting together, but no less fun for it! I will be revealing which one I bought very soon... I also met Celia who was there on the night, she is a really sweet lady with a real glint of fun in her eye. She told me how much fun she had designing the range. She has been approached by other brands before, but felt this one was right and had lots of fun working with them. She was involved in many stages, right down to window dressing. She was there with her grandchildren too, one of them posed with us for my sleb-stalker photo!

In attendance too were my lovely friends Lucy of Snippets of Shiny Thoughts and Carrie of Wish Wish Wish. They were part of a girl gang of bloggers: Dunya of Dearest Dear, Kristabel of I Want To Know You and Olivia of What Olivia Did. I love the way they styled their Celia Birtwell pieces one fine afternoon which you can read on Lucy's blog here.


To celebrate Uniqlo’s launch of the Celia Birtwellcollaboration, two signed prints are up for grabs. There's also five signedhardback copies of ‘Celia Birtwell’ with Doniminic Lutyens as runnerup prizes. To enter, simply Instagram/Tweet yourself in wearing a Uniqlo x Celia Birtwell piece, tagging #StyledinCelia before April 18th. Good Luck!
