A new brand to the Five Six Blue Boutique in 2018, Chalk began life in Margate, Kent in 2012. We stocked their beautiful linen totes last summer and they were a sell-out! So, this summer we have added to the collection to include some of their Breton and graphic tees. Although not a Scandi brand, the beautiful timeless designs and incredible quality mean they fit effortlessly alongside our Scandi and European aesthetic that we are known for. Here’s an introduction to some of their designs and what makes them so special…
We fell in love with the quality and ethics of Chalk’s designs. Designed in Kent, they are made by British artisans using beautiful, natural fabrics including their signature linen, all in muted, feminine shades.
Easy, coastal style
Created with comfort and style in mind – the easy Breton stripes, natural fibres and washed pastel hues make them perfect for a laid-back coastal look. Pair with cut-offs and saltwater sandals if you’re off to Cornwall this summer – or with jeans, trainers and a khaki shacket, come autumn.
The soft cotton tops have a hint of stretch, making them a great holiday essential as they pack beautifully. It also makes them a flattering, comfortable fit – perfect for travelling. They keep their shape and look smarter than a ‘sloppy tee’. Great with chinos and wedge espadrilles for a relaxed summer look. Their unique ‘one-size’ is designed to flatter from size 8-14, they’re a great versatile fit if you’re looking for a t-shirt that doesn’t cling but is gently shaped.

The Darcey (£30) is Chalk’s short-sleeve style, available in a classic charcoal Breton Stripe. The soft grey is a flattering hue; perfect teamed with denim or khaki chinos like this pair from Rosemunde.

Choose for soft pastels or bold animal print – they are so versatile you’ll wear them tucked into pleated skirts with boots, with jeans, short… we can’t list the ways. A proper, beautifully made wardrobe style staple.
