Paisley Print Dress from Dorothy Perkins

Paisleydress

Along with a wide variety of bold prints, paisley came to the peak of its popularity in women's fashion during the 1960s. Coupling the classic print with bright, psychedelic colours, this Paisley Print Dress captures that later sixties and early seventies aesthetic in an easy to wear item.

The dress has a relaxed cut, with a loose fit and capped sleeves creating a seventies silhouette that's reminiscent of the kimono styles popular at the time. The mini hemline ties into that crossover of eras, while the combination of florals into the paisley print adds a feminine retro appeal.

Wild and Wolf ‘Folklore’ Enamel Teapot

Folklore-enamel-coffee-pot-teapot
Folklore is a new design created by Nina Jarema, inspired by the Ukranian forests of her childhood and used to decorate a range of homewares including this Enamel Teapot.

Nina’s decorative motifs incorporate woodland creatures and have a retro seventies feel thanks to a distinctive paisley element to their design.

The pot is enamel coated and suitable for either tea or coffee. Enamel has long been used to make camping crockery and this pot would make a great accessory for a comfortable camping (or “glamping”) holiday.

The pot costs £14.95 and you can buy it from Bloomsbury & Co here.

Update: This is now discounted to £9.50 at Achica.

Raindrops Keep Falling Paisley Umbrella

Raindrops

Who says we're not topical? As rain pours across most of the UK, the word 'umbrella' isn't far from anyone's lips. This Raindrops Keep Falling Paisley Umbrella comes with an added bonus – a cool retro twist.

It's a 1960s-inspired number, not just with that clear dome shape (designed to give a maximum protection, along with maximum visibility), but also with that period paisley pattern – certain to turn some heads, even in a torrential downpour.

OK, by the time you get one, it might have stopped raining. But if you experience similar weather to us, the next downpour is never far away. Available online, it sells for $29.99.
