Cool Britannia – Blighty buys are BIG

May 1, 2009

There are so many patriotic designs around at the moment, you can’t miss them. Seeing the new Autumn/Winter collections this week, we spotted more Union Jacks than you’d see at a victory parade and British symbols such as bulldogs and royal crowns were everywhere – it looks as if this Cool Britannia trend is set to get even bigger. Here are a few gorgeous blighty buys for you to feast your eyes on this bank holiday weekend…


Padstow Union Jack cushion, £16, Bhs (available Sept)


Crown cushion, £85; Crown tea cosy, £61; Jan Constantine; Pennant, £4.95; Mug, £3.95; Dotcomgiftshop; Union Jack cushion, £55, Ian Mankin.


Union Jack cushion, £12; Union jack cases, £30 for two; Matalan (available Sept)

Let’s hope the British weather holds up this weekend! We’ll be back on Tuesday with more ideas and great buys. – Ellie
