We’re suckers for romance and antiquities so when The Porcelain Cat came to us with nothing but a description of what they hoped to become we were compelled from the beginning. The Porcelain Cat offer the finest antique clothes to a modern marketplace.
Much like an ageing treasure, the idea we polished into shape revolved around timelessness and patronage. One quote, from a treasure, no less, came to symbolize everything we were trying to bottle:
I adore wearing gems, but not because they are mine. You can’t possess radiance, you can only admire it. — Elizabeth Taylor
We needed an iconic image to crystalize the momentary purchasing of the beautiful, perennial goods on offer. The cat came to be that radiant gem, leaping from moment to moment, groundless, timeless, its form etched using hundreds of marks, each adding to the overall form and individuality.
It’s so rare to find such a talented team so willing to give so much of themselves. Not only do they deliver on the final product they make the process enjoyable, fun and exciting. — Rosie Van Schoor-Mast, Owner, The Porcelain Cat
