Ship’s Ahoy with Gant

There’s a nod to the nautical in this season’s Gant collection. We’re currently displaying some of it in our window alongside a lovely old pram clinker dinghy, kindly lent to us by an Aldeburgh resident. There’s plenty of the much loved preppy look in the Gant collection as well as gorgeous prints on beautiful blouses and skirts. We particularly love the flag print available in women’s cropped jeans and a pleated skirt. SHOP GANT AT O&C BUTCHER > PRINT

The O&C SS22 Photoshoot

It’s the most beautiful spot and will be even more so when the real summer arrives. Thank you to Amy and John at Thurston’s for letting us use your lovely home, we... Read More
