The Boden Christmas Confessional

The Boden Christmas Confessional

Forgive me Father Christmas for I have sinned. Don’t like mince pies? Fell asleep during your child’s nativity play? Rewrapped a Secret Santa gift? This season we’re celebrating those classic festive ‘failings’ with our Boden Christmas Confessional. Think of it as your chance to repent and reap the rewards.

To kick-off proceedings, we hosted a Christmas lunch for some of our favourite style influencers and writers at one of London’s most photogenic restaurants, Clos Maggiore. We filled them with turkey and all the trimmings before asking them to disclose their very own yuletide confessions. There’s nothing like a clear conscience at Christmas.
