Get the look: Queen of retro chic sets up shop in town

Quintessentially English brand Cath Kidston has arrived in Belfast with the opening of a dedicated store in Upper Arthur Street.

Now 2,324 sq ft has been dedicated to the Queen of retro chic, enabling local customers to get their fill of chintz in the city centre.

Expect plenty of exciting design features such as eye catching giant balls of wool in the haberdashery space, a ‘washing line’ feature displaying the beautiful fabric range and an aptly named Belfast sink in the laundry area.

The shop will stock the whole Cath Kidston range from home furnishings, fabrics and wallpaper to kitchenware, must-have fashion and accessories and a great children's and baby range.

A made-to-measure blinds and curtains service will also be available in-store.

Chris McKendrick, Cath Kidston’s commercial director, said: “We are delighted to have secured our first permanent location in Northern Ireland, having been keen to open a shop for some time.

“Upper Arthur Street is a great location and gives us the opportunity to expand our growing customer base. Stocking our full range of products, and with prices ranging from £1.50 to £200, there will be something for everyone, we look forward to welcoming the Belfast customer to the Cath Kidston experience.”

The brand is best known for its witty, vintage inspired prints and wide array of household and fashion products — from polka dot china to floral bags. Founded by its namesake in 1993, Cath Kidston is one of the most influential and original design companies to emerge from the UK recently.
