Rachel Riley collaborates with Eloise

Leave a comment

Eloise books were written in the 1950’s by Kay Thompson.

They were based on a little six year old girl who lives in the “room on the tippy-top floor” of the Plaza Hotel in New York City with her Nanny, her pug dog Weenie, and her turtle Skipperdee.


Rachel Riley has now designed a beautiful collection of her own in honour of the first Eloise book’s 60th anniversary.

“It has been a delight to work with The Plaza on this collaboration,” Riley said in a statement. “The Eloise story was written in 1955, an era that I love, so I have really tried to celebrate the glamour of the 50s with fabrics from the book’s vibrant illustrations. It is exciting to recreate outfits that reflect the irrepressible spirit of Kay Thompson’s most famous six year old in a way that is relevant for children today.”


The collection will include dresses, coats and sleep suits and will be available exclusively at The Plaza Shop in September and online at http://www.rachelriley.com


I love when these collaboration’s come about. It had introduced me to a collection of book’s that I knew nothing about and look forward to reading to my children too.
