While you may have thought the cartoon-covered pillowcases and dinosaur sheets of your youth were merely a thing of the past, fashion label Duvet Days has brought them back in a big way.
When reminiscing about your childhood bedroom, embarrassing posters and strewn-about toys inevitably come to mind. But what about your old bed sheets?
Whether covered in busy, colorful patterns or decorated with contemporaneously popular cartoon characters, your old bedspread undoubtedly made a bold statement about your prepubescent interests. And, to London-based fashion label Duvet Days, they still can.
Specialising in upcycled, unisex clothing, Duvet Days repurposes old blankets and pillowcases into casual garments. Ranging from trousers to cropped tops, each retro-inspired creation features simple lines and basic silhouettes to complement the boisterous patterns and nostalgic decorations. To founder Emma Graham-While, this balance is key, as she emphasises that “it’s important to let the print talk”. In addition to its appealing aesthetics, each piece is 100% upcycled and, thus, entirely eco-friendly.
Whether worn as daily getups or lazy loungewear, Duvet Days’ wistful blast-from-the-past collection is sure to jog your memory.
