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.

The Lady Garden Foundation‘s mission is to raise funds for gynaecological health to help reduce the diagnoses and devastating outcomes of gynaecological cancers, often referred to as Silent Killers. The determined group of women behind the charity are as ambitious as their vision, which is not only to change the future of female health, but the way we talk about it too. 

 

Whilst maintaining a commitment to the prevention of all five gynaecological cancers, The Lady Garden Foundation will also seek to shine a light on a woman's full Lady Garden journey; to arm women and girls with the knowledge they need to break down the taboos that surround the topic. The charity pledges to raise funds for both gynaecological cancer and additional causes from menstruation to menopause. 

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 Botte

 

As beautiful now as they were when they were bought to the range two years ago, these classic boots take their name from the Greek goddess of the rainbow. Thoughtfully handcrafted with our signature Chamolux rubber, a lightweight, durable, and waterproof material for all-day comfort, lined with poly-cotton jersey to help wick moisture away. A wonderfully versatile tall boot to suit high temperatures as well as intermediate seasons.

Iris Rose Garden Bottillon

 

This mid-height version of our Iris boot contains all the benefits of our lightweight Iris - our exclusive Chamolux rubber and moisture-wicking polycotton jersey lining - but this time in a shorter style. This style is a gardener’s dream, practical for bending down, digging, potting and planting. If you have a sportier calf or just prefer something that feels lighter than a traditional wellington, the Bottillon is the boot for you.

Iris Rose Garden Chelsea

 

 

The rubber boot we have all been waiting for, the Iris Chelsea. Designed with traditional Chelsea boot styling in mind, the rubber boot carries all the same credentials as Le Chameau’s most iconic boots, most special to mention is that they are handcrafted from start to finish by our master bootmakers. Featuring tonal elastic panels, they will look striking at a spring garden party but will equally sit stylishly by your back door waiting to be slipped on and off.

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.’’ 
  
Julie Montagu 
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’’. 

Hazel Gardiner 
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. “ 
  
Becky Searle 
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.’’ 

The Lady Garden was founded as daughters, sisters and mothers, to raise awareness and funding for gynaecological health. Everyday, 58 women in the UK, will receive the devastating and life-changing news of a gynaecological cancer diagnosis.

With Le Chameau and The Lady Garden Foundation, we’re standing together to stomp out the taboos surrounding women’s health, and to help give gynaecological cancer the boot.
