First off…meet me…Sara Hall, Cocoon Luxury Wear Founder. I am a 33 (too close to being 34) year old, mummy of a beautiful little two and half year old, Arianna, and the wife to a rather amazing man, David.
Cocoon came about after I bought my daughter a woolen cape which we could easily put on if we were running out the door.
Soon, Arianna grew out of the cape and I tried to find one similar online and in as many shops as I could, but nothing was out there.
So began the story of Cocoon Baby Wear.
In February, this year, I launched my first ever line based on a small collection of one-off capes for kids.
These capes were made from stunning ex-designer material from Paris & Milan fashion houses and were made to fit from 1 – 4.5 year olds.
In 2 weeks, through Facebook alone, the capes were a sell out.
Soon after, I started receiving floods of emails and messages asking if I could make a ladies cape.
Fast forward six months and the Cocoon Luxe Autumn/Winter 2015/2016 collection was launched featuring a ladies Harris Tweed Ladies cape & matching Harris Tweed kids capes.
When we sold out on our first batch of capes I realized the impact that our product
had on our customers. It was a dream come true! From that moment on I wanted our company to be committed to listening to our customers to always provide the best products and customer service.
So far we’ve only had positive feedback and lots of love. We couldn’t be happier.
The current line includes two styles of Harris Tweed Ladies capes, collared and hooded, in five different tweed patterns and matching hooded Harris Tweed kids capes.
Cocoon capes are mainly being sold online through the website, but Cocoon also has 4 stockists within the UK, a number which is continually growing.
We are currently working on the AW 16/17 line which will include a 5 new designs featuring 100% cashmere ladies cape, a men’s tweed blanket throw, a fitted ladies cape and a fashion forward piece designed to turn heads.
The new collection will feature Harris Tweed as usual and we are very excited to introduce a Donegal Tweed range.
To begin, a year ago exactly, making a total of 40 kids capes to “try and sell to friends and family” and grow within that time to a well known company selling over 2000 ladies capes and growing, is quite the achievement.
Cocoon Luxury Wear is a company who believes primary in the absolute best quality and customer service it can possibly give and with this foundation has
come great success.
I am thrilled with our achievements so far and so excited to introduce our A/W 2016/17 range to the public this summer. Our customers are our brand and without their loyal backing Cocoon would have never come as far as it has already in the space of a year.
Our brand reflects the strong female who makes her own rules and isn’t afraid to take chances and I hope to continue to reflect that personality in my coming collections”
