  1. Mayfair Boots 

These absolutely stunning boots are perfect for the Chelsea Flower Show. The classic suede and leather boot offers an elegant finish to any outfit and the bright tassel details adds a bit of fun. The added bonus is the waterproof and breathable membrane between the leather / suede and the lining that is warm and dry in Winter and cool and dry in Summer. Available in navy, chocolate and grey.

  1. Demelza Coat 

Unfortunately, we can’t guarantee sunshine and warm weather for Chelsea so the Demelza is the perfect coat if it’s a little bit chilly outside. Available in 3 colours, this incredibly elegant coat is stylish and luxuriously tailored. British presenter Clare Balding OBE is a fan of the Navy and Hazelnut shades.
