Cacharel’s Statue of Liberty

Cacharel 50th anniversary limited collection is now being sold at Cacharel’s boutique at Arraya complex and Al Thurraya complex. The collection consists of archive pieces reworked in their original Liberty floral prints and original retro patterns but on modern designs. Cacharel and Liberty originally collaborated in the late 1960s, producing a Cacharel designed blouse in a Liberty print. Liberty prints are also being used by Gap and Kate Moss’s TopShop collection.

To me, the collection was a bit of a disappointment. It looked mediocre and … blah! I liked the prints and Cacharel’s cotton belts though. It would have looked smashin’ if the designs were re-worked in a very modern way rather than a “Little House on the Prairie” kind of way.
