Mrs Bennet curates a Hot Date

For The Culture Edit themed Culture x Hot Date we dreamt of inviting none other than Mrs Bennet to curate her favourite romantic styles


Jane Austen opens her classic novel Pride and Prejudice by poking fun at the notion that, “It is a truth universally acknowledged, that a single man in possession of a good fortune, must be in want of a wife.” Mrs Bennet, super mom (and super meddling matchmaker) to the Bennet girls couldn’t see the humour in that. In fact, she couldn’t agree more with the statement. Matchmaking is something of a lifelong calling for Mrs Bennet, our dream guest curator for this edition of The Culture Edit x Hot Date. But more than a Hot Date, this mother of five is into a good marriage.

Even if you’re not that into wedding bells, after casting an eye on this curated selection of trinkets, fashion pieces and homewares, you’ll have to admit that at least the lady’s got style. So feast your eyes on this, and as Mrs Bennet might say, you can have your pick of the litter…
