I dreamt my grandma and I were at Ascot.
The women were dressed in white, but mostly blue and many of them were wearing hats that reminded me of pastries. The kind that makes your mouth water. And it was grandma who’d made them. The hats, I mean. My mum’s mother is gone now, but she was English, and she was a milliner. A man in a top hat offers me a glass of bubbly, and says: “Would you like a cucumber sandwich?”
Cucumber Sandwich. That’s the name of Pimpinette’s Spring & Summer 09 Collection. It’s all about the English summer and garden parties, with a glass of Pimm’s in your hand. People milling about in pastels and flirtatious fabrics.
The S/S 09 is a Collection of dresses, skirts, blouses, trousers and coats. The garments are fashioned in ’grandma’s’ fabrics and materials, plus silk and cotton and viscose tricot as well as knitted silk fabric mixes.
Cucumber Sandwich is also about lace, graphic and check patterns. In colours from beige and cream, to blue, black, grey and brown.
Let Pimpinette and Cucumber Sandwich treat you to a Day at the Races.
