When British behemoths Marks & Spencer, Roald Dahl and The Natural History Museum get together to create a children’s fashion collection, you know the results are going to be very, very special…
Launching in stores and online on 10th February look out for this phizz-whizzing collection from M&S in collaboration with one of the nation’s favourite authors, Roald Dahl and one of London’s top attractions, the Natural History Museum, which features a charming, colourful and playful edit of daytime designs that are to be, well, played in.
‘The Extraordinary Explorers’ collection is a 24-piece range for boys and girls that not only features much-loved animal characters from Dahl’s books, including Fantastic Mr Fox, The Enormous Crocodile, The Giraffe and The Pelly And Me , and James and the Giant Peach, but each piece is further brought to life with fascinating animal facts provided by the Natural History Museum’s own scientists.
