Millie Mackintosh for Bambi and Manson
With every year gone by, I’ve never found the perfect pair of summer shorts, I always had my heart set on having a pair with a fuse of romantic fabrics and prints with bohemian festival denim. After coming across Bambi & Manson, i was keen to get involved and design my own pair! i got to know Polly and Jim and they were really helpful in customising some pairs for me, we came up with the idea to design a pair of special edition shorts together, so I could finally live the denim dream!
I’ve really enjoyed the process of collaborating with Polly and Jim, and learned so much about what goes into the process of producing specialised garments. I absolutely love experimenting with different fabrics, embellishments and different trends and I was inspired right from the start of the creative process by the classic William Morris prints and when I came across this fabric, after weeks of searching, I knew straight away that the floral fabric and golden beading would look amazing on the rustic denim with tanned summer legs!
I wanted to create a piece that you could wear to both a festival and to an English garden party, and my Bambi & Manson shorts are the perfect combination for both!
