All in a Good Cause: Pearl Lowe Creates Capes for Selfish Mother

SEEN’s magpie eye was very taken with these fabulous sequinned capes for children. Our only question being: won’t the grown-ups be wearing them too?

The capes are the result of a fantastic new collaboration between charitable slogan tee brand Selfish Mother and Pearl Lowe in support of Tommy’s Charity, launching June 1st at The FMLY Store. Tommy’s fund research into pregnancy problems and provide pregnancy health information to parents. They believe it is unacceptable that one in four women lose a baby during pregnancy and birth. Clearly a good fit for Selfish Mother, who now have over two thousand writers giving the world the lowdown on real experiences of parenthood, and whose clothing line regularly donates to charity via their #GoodTees initiative.

The Petite Pearl Lowe x Selfish Mother mini-collection comprises a sequinned cape handmade in Somerset, available in 4 colourways: pink, green, red and turquoise. The cape is aimed at superhero boys and girls from age 2-12 years old, but like we say, the adults will doubtless be having a go. Perfect ahead of festival season summer fun, these capes are a must-have for the warmer months. As many Londoners head to the West Country for their holidays, do be sure to check out their shop.

The Castle at the Space: SEEN Reviews

SEEN was not that familiar with the work of Howard Barker prior to seeing ‘The Castle’ but feels she must rectify that situation. A powerful piece on the nature of masculinity, war, gender roles and the essential unreliability of religious faith, ‘The Castle’ benefits from a powerhouse cast and a stripped-back set, making the most of the Space’s environment.
