Fish and chips, knife and fork, cheese and wine, Ant and Dec. Things that fit together and were meant to be together! We have a perfect partner too; Colour Me Beautiful and Kettlewell. Why? Because the people at Kettlewell ‘get’ colour and are as passionate about it as we are. The company was formed almost 20 years ago by husband and wife, John & Melissa Nicholson. Melissa had her colours done on a miserable winter day and was disappointed to be told that her spring shades wouldn’t be available in the shops until next season. And so Kettlewell was launched, providing customers with beautiful clothes in their seasonal colours all year round. Genius! From the original collections of tops and t-shirts, the company have since expanded into jackets, skirts, trousers, dresses and accessories. But the principal still remains the same. Colour is at the forefront of everything that Kettlewell does.
Without hesitation, it’s a company that we recommend to our clients regularly. The shopping experience makes it very easy to identify the perfect colour every time. So how does it work? Well first of all, you will need to navigate to this page to work out your seasonal palette. Armed with this information, you can ‘shop’ the website which will be personalised to your very own colour palette. Whether you’re a novice or an old-hand using your cmb colour wallet, Kettlewell make it a very pleasurable shopping experience. Here are a few of our favourite items that are currently on the website.
This stunning outfit is actually a skirt and top, both pieces versatile in their own right. (Spot Print top here and Sophie Spot Skirt here). Available in watermelon, cerise, emerald and sea blue so there's a colour for everyone.
Good quality t-shirts and tops can be hardworking pieces in your wardrobe. Kettlewell produce a huge range of different necklines and sleeve lengths in an array of colours. This is the Silky Scoop Neck available in 31 different shades.
Kettlewell aren't just about bright, colourful clothes; they produce great neutrals that you can use as wardrobe building blocks. These all season navy Ponte Culottes can be worn with flip flops and a t-shirt in the summer and long boots and a chunky jumper in winter.
And for the cooler months, the Connie jumper can be layered with a shirt and jacket or worn on it's own. A piece that you will return to time and time again.
