The stories created by Roald Dahl have captured the imaginations of children for years, and its likely that just about everyone you know has read at least one of Dahl’s stories that include Charlie and the Chocolate Factory, James and the Giant Peach, Matilda, The Witches – the list goes on! The 13th of September 2016 would’ve been Roald Dahl’s 100th birthday and to celebrate, Mini Boden have launched a limited edition Roald Dahl Childrens Collection that is just as fantastical as Dahl’s characters.
Each garment features details or 3D elements that bring the clothes to life, such as crochet, embroidery and sequins. The lining of the Velvet Wonka Jacket is the chocolate factory so that when you open it, you are also opening the gates to the chocolate factory. While the printed lining of the Matilda Dress is made up of the list of books Matilda tells Miss Honey she has read so that you can carry Matilda’s books with you wherever you go. Love!
Sadly, this collection is only available on the Boden US site with no shipping available to Australia – so we can only appreciate from afar! Take a look anyway …… freight forwarding anyone?
