Charlie Boots – unique capsule pieces

By Kate | Women
Posted Dec 3, 2010

Charlie Boots is a Bristol-based designer who creates womenswear and bags from fair trade, sustainable, organic, reclaimed and vintage fabrics ( such as 1930’s ‘feedsacks’ and kimonos from the 50’s). Each design in her eponymous label is limited to only ten items and due to the rarity of many of the fabrics, some are complete one-offs. They are fabricated to their high standard by a small team of talented seamstresses (who are paid fairly). This semi-fitted Dacha top is in part made from a vintage 1930′s feedsack printed fabric. It has a wrap-over back and can be slipped on without the need for any conventional fastenings. There was only a small piece of this antique fabric available so only three of these tops have been made! £94.00.

This reversible Cambra tailored skirt has two distinct looks. On one side there are neat external darts and on the other there are black buttons to complement the black binding. The front of the skirt curves up slightly and rounds off to an almost imperceptible downward curve at the back. £79.00. Shown with the reversible Cleo black linen-mix, assymetrical top. On the plain side there is a slightly raised back panel, the other has a printed side with a back vent to show a hint of the print. The top fastens with a hidden zip at the centre- back and two small presstuds. Both sides have darts coming from the neckline. £84.00. Ships everywhere. Charlie Boots is currently offering 10% off (until the 25th of December) to magnifeco readers – email and tell her you read about her on magnifeco and she will then email or text you the code. This cannot be used in conjunction with any other offer.
