WHENEVER you find a slightly older woman doing great clothes for slightly older women, you hang onto them like glue…
Christa Davis is one of those women. Christa started her label over 20 years ago selling from Portobello Road, and then from her own store on All Saints Road. When she had a family she scaled back for a while, but a few years ago started trading again from her Hackney, north east London, studio.
Her clothes are timeless, but yet again of the moment. They’re fun and feminine but don’t make you feel silly. You can play with the kids in them. She recycles cashmere (and also offers a rescue / pimping service for a favourite cashmere jumper gone to seed) that is embellished with sequin trim or patchwork additions; does flattering dresses and blouses with a 1940s feel to them; and dresses the kids too.
All designs are incredibly affordable for a high quality / boutique line… (Designs from approx £60). www.christadavis.com
