Le Chameau x Lady Garden Foundation
This spring, Le Chameau is standing in solidarity with national women’s health charity, The Lady Garden Foundation, and their mission to extend and improve gynaecological health. Timed in line with Ovarian Cancer Awareness month this March, a new limited-edition Iris Rose wellington boot has been handcrafted. 10% of all sales of these boots throughout March will go directly to The Lady Garden Foundation.
Iris Rose Garden Collection
Following a successful launch of the Iris in 2020 across seven colourways, we have developed the nature inspired Rose coloured Botte into two new heights, the Bottillon and Chelsea. All boots have been adorned with The Lady Garden Foundation logo - a unique and special stamp of unity.
Iris Rose Garden Ambassadors
Lady Garden co-founder, and sister of Cara and Poppy Delevingne. With a Biomedical Science and Tumour Biology degree under her belt, since co-founding the Lady Garden Foundation, Chloe has gone on to champion women’s sexual health and is currently training to be a midwife:
’For us this partnership was a no brainer - the Iris boots from Le Chameau in Rose tie in so perfectly to the brand, and what a great initiative that for every boot purchased, 10% of the sales will be given to the charity. It is more than what we could have asked for.’’
Our wonderful Le Chameau brand partner and countryside ambassador, committed to making country estates more accessible to the public who otherwise wouldn’t get to learn the history. Julie is a mother, with one daughter, so the subject is front of mind for her:
‘’I have loved Le Chameau for many years, so when I was asked to be a part of this campaign and help spread such an important message, I felt honoured’’.
A Floral designer, broadcaster, host on BBC 4 Gardener’s Question Time, Hazel has a wealth of garden knowledge, perfect roots to the audience of our Iris boots. The campaign is very close to the heart:
‘’After surviving a rare cancer with treatment at The Royal Marsden I’m acutely aware of the need for women to feel they can openly talk about their gynaecological health to each other and most importantly their physician. It’s vital that discussions are destigmatised, and women are educated on the symptoms. An early diagnosis and awareness are the best ways to prevent and fight cancer. Gardening was my natural tonic whilst in recovery and beyond. My passion for horticultural was amplified leading me to career in the industry. I’m grateful that my difficult health journey profoundly changed my life in a largely positive way. I’m passionate that no other women should face becoming a terrifying statistic. I nearly was and know so many, too many, just aren’t as fortunate. “
An ecologist, botanist, kitchen gardener, and presenter of The Seed Pod Podcast, with a widespread influence across broadcast and social media. Becky features vibrant colours in spades on her feed, fittingly in line with our wider colourful Iris collection. Becky is mother, with two very young daughters, who wants them to speak openly on the topic as the grow up:
‘’I have two daughters, so I want to make sure they grow up in a society where these typically taboo topics are spoken about and understood, so that symptoms can be caught early, and they know the warning signs.’’
