Product of the week

There are lots of new designers in store at the moment and more clothing in the dressing room in time to make some great additions to your summer wardrobes! Last Friday saw not only the opening of Set in Stone but the arrival of Chouchou Couture here at Welcome Home...

"Chouchou Couture is an emerging, Glasgow based designer label. We create bespoke and limited release garments and accessories inspired by the same city girls that choose and layer our pieces. The S/S 2010 Collection has been created mixing elements of vintage Italian tailoring and the lifestyle of the U.S. West Coast. All garments and accessories have been handmade ethically in Rome using local cottons, silks and leathers."

This week's product of the week is the chemise dress from Chouchou Couture. A one of a kind dress made with dead stock vintage Italian silk in an amazing print. These pieces are available in store only as you really need to try them on and see the full collection. We've also got a great selection of vintage sunglasses handpicked by Chouchou Couture from Paris and Rome, now all we need is the sunshine again!

A new feature here, every Friday I will be sharing my product of the week with you all. The first selection comes from London based, Swedish born illustrator Hanna Melin and her lovely Summer Holiday bag. I've been inspired by a tiny bit of sunshine and dreams of going away but it works equally well for popping out to the local shops! Available in store and online for only £10...
