"Bowled" over by Royal Doulton and Charlene Mullen's New Ceramics Collection

British Standard played host yesterday to iconic English ceramics company, Royal Doulton, and local homewares designer, Charlene Mullen as our Hoxton showroom was magically transformed into a set for a campaign photo shoot, marking the latest collaboration between the two creatives.

With Royal Doulton's heritage deeply rooted in Lambeth, and Charlene's shop only a hop, skip and a jump away from us in Calvert Avenue, the day was set to be a very local affair...

And the best bit of all? We were lucky enough to get the first glimpse of the new designs!

Having already worked together on previous monochromatic collections, most recently the limited edition collection to celebrate Royal Doulton's 200th birthday, 'The Geometric Collection' which launches next February is definitely eye catching; if the bold patterns don't "bowl" you over, the vibrant colours certainly will!

As photographer Brent Derby and the creative team began building each shot, it became the most wonderful kind of chaos, with every surface covered and every cupboard filled to the brim with ceramics...

We even all got to enjoy an afternoon tea break amidst the hustle and bustle, sipping English Breakfast out of our very own geometric mugs!
