Home is Where the Brat is

Brat and Suzie have officially got the festive season covered. From Halloween to Christmas, they have created perfect prints that will ensure we all fully embrace the forthcoming festivities!

This fab brand was created in 2009 by twin sisters Polly and Charlotte and since then… ‘Brat & Suzie has grown from a small label that first sold out of the "Up Market" near Brick Lane in London, to a fully-fledged fashion brand that has quickly gained a following amongst celebrities, trend-setters and top retailers worldwide’.

It was when this creative duo appeared on Dragon’s Den in August 2011, that they gained What Sarah did as an avid fan, and mutual believer that fashion should be fun. Inspired by their love of wildlife (and their muse Amber the Chihuahua of course!) Polly and Charlotte have created a quirky brand, which successfully combines their adoration of animals and fashion.

So which cuties have we got in store?

The Owl Sweater Dress is the epitome of Autumn. It’s oh so cosy and the mustard tones in the owl embellishment are in tune with the leaves at our feet. Keep things casual with a pair of trainers or why not add a pair of chunky heels and combine comfort with a dash of sass. The dip back hem means this little beauty has an abundance of outfit options- pair with leggings for a casual daytime look or take it to the dance floor with bare legs- your little nocturnal owl pal is staying awake anyway, you may as well join in!

Owl Sweater Dress- £40 

There’s also the Owl Jogger- the answer to your smart/casual woes! Tighter at the waist and ankle, these joggers create a stylish silhouette and look as fab with heels and a fitted jacket as they do with a plain tee and converse. Going out for dinner? Team the Owl Jogger with a pair of heels to dress up the look and ensure you have room for desert with their elastic waistband and drawstring closure. What’s not to love?

Owl Jogger- £32

Next stop is Halloween and Brat and Suzie have got the ghoulish vibes spot on.
The ‘Black Cats and Voodoo Dolls’ long sleeve T-shirt will channel your inner Morticia Addams, while the slogan ‘Creep’ sweatshirt keeps things casual (and warm if you’re trick or treating!). These pieces aren’t just for Halloween though; they’ll see you through the season and are the perfect wardrobe essentials for A/W layering.

Black Cats and Voodoo Dolls Tshirt- £25
Creep Sweatshirt-£32

Roll on December…Who doesn’t love and NEED a fun, festive jumper in their life this Crimbo? Only Scrooge himself could resist this gorgeous Penguin print sweater, it’s making us want to watch Happy Feet all over again.

Penguin Sweater-£32

Be the envy of the office Christmas party with the ‘Oh Deer’ Tee. Counteract the cuteness with some fierce Vero Moda PU Biker Leggings (£35) and the Jungle Rock Tuxedo by English Girl (£85). A fun yet glam Christmas combo.
Oh Deer Tee-£22
We <3 this quirky British brand and will be embracing the super cosy pieces on chilly nights, while mixing the cute separates with tough leather and silver accessories for twilight fun.

Did you spot any of the Brat and Suzie pieces at the Hitchin Fashion Show today?
