When I learned that my favorite velvet slipper maker, Stubbs & Wootton, had collaborated with my favorite English chintz maker, Colefax & Fowler, I just about jumped for joy. Talk about an interior decoration and fashion design match made in heaven! If you share my love for all things Sybil Colefax and John Fowler and their quintessential English country house style, now you can wear it on your shoes, too! The special collection features “a selection of slippers in jewel tones of fine Egyptian cotton-velvet embroidered with flowers, borrowed from the iconic chintz’ designed by Ms. Colefax and Mr. Fowler themselves.” Sounds like a dream to me! Below, explore the four fabulous new Stubbs styles. Which would you choose?
Above, the Bowood slipper (bound to be a popular favorite) features a Pea Green Sea-Island Cotton Velvet Upper with a Pea Green Grosgrain Trim. It’s finished off with Colefax & Fowler Bowood embroideries.
Here is a sample of Colefax & Flower’s iconic Bowood print fabric. You can read my entire blog post gushing about the iconic chintz print here. I found yardage for my Bowood chairs on eBay and you can always order Bowood pillows on Etsy.
The Hydrangea slipper above features a Cobalt Blue Sea-Island Cotton Velvet Upper with a Cobalt Grosgrain Trim. It’s finished off with Colefax & Fowler Hydrangea embroideries.
Above, the Rose and Hydrangea fabric by Colefax & Fowler. Another one of my favorites.
The Poppy slipper features a Mustard Sea-Island Cotton Velvet Upper with a Mustard Grosgrain Trim. It’s finished off with Colefax & Fowler Poppy embroideries.
Above, the iconic Tree Poppy fabric by Colefax & Fowler. I know I sound like a broken record here, but it’s yet another one of my all-time favorite floral prints.
The Geraniums slipper features a Burgundy Sea-Island Cotton Velvet Upper with a Burgundy Grosgrain Trim. It’s finished off with Colefax & Fowler Geraniums embroideries. I did a bit of research and as far as I can tell, the Climbing Geranium fabric by Colefax & Fowler is no longer produced. What a pity—I do love a Pelargonium!
I hope you’ve enjoyed exploring this colorful new collaboration as much as I have! The designs can be purchased online here and, I believe, at the Colefax & Fowler shop on Pimlico Road in London. Long live chintz!
