Global parenting retailer, Mothercare, is delighted to announce an exclusive collaboration with Jools Oliver.

Launching in both UK and international stores from 17th August 2012, the new collection will include nursery bedding and accessories, newborn and children’s clothing aimed at babies and children from 0 to 5 years, and original gifts suitable from birth to 3 years. The new collection features a unique mix of high quality, affordable pieces with an eclectic and timeless look and feel that reflects Jools’ love of nostalgic yet modern collectables.

Alan Parker, Mothercare Executive Chairman says, “We are delighted to announce a new creative partnership with Jools Oliver, well-respected mum and children’s author.  For the past 50 years Mothercare has stood for a modern approach to traditional family values and we believe this complements all that Jools Oliver stands for.  The new range offers exceptional quality and affordable style and reflects what our customers tell us they want from the Mothercare brand.”

Jools Oliver comments, “I have such a passion for the design of children’s clothes, so to have this opportunity to work with Mothercare is just amazing. My mother dressed us in Mothercare clothes as I have with my children, so Mothercare has always been part of my life. My designs combine both quirky and classic style inspired by my childhood memories. The collection features nostalgic, classic pieces, sprinkled with unique touches and playful attention to detail. The entire collection has been lovingly put together and accessibly priced for parents. I can’t wait to launch it.”
