Nobody understands these things quite like Cath Kidston. Her nostalgic florals are sophisticated yet non-pretentious, and vintage yet somehow modern. The art direction and photography in her catalogs is so spot-on that they read like coffee table books and tell a story rather than sell a product. I've been collecting them for years and thought I'd share some of my favorite images with you, as well as a couple from her books. You can also order your own catalog and it will be shipped to you from England for free ;)
