In October 2021, Angel Strawbridge launched her first children’s collection, Le Cirque du Chateau. Based on “all the fun of the fair”, the whimsical design transports us back to the days when entertainment was simple and uncomplicated.

Fantastical animals are featured as playful circus characters, teamed with clowns and jugglers to recreate every child’s dream. Hand-drawn images teamed with pastel shades create a beautiful, calm and restful scene, whilst retaining a sense of fun and child-like delight.

Angel said, “I’ve been collecting vintage fairground memorabilia for as long as I can remember and for me ‘Le Cirque du Chateau’ evokes all the joy of a family day out: the sights, sounds and thrills of the circus or a traditional fairground ride – there’s nothing quite like it! This collection makes me smile!”

The collection comprises bedding (toddler and child sizes), ready-made curtains, cushions, lampshade and fabric. Le Cirque du Chateau is available through a range of independent stockists and as part of Next’s Brand Collection from mid-October.
