British bootmaker Dr Martens has poached the boss of High Street retailer Cath Kidston.

Kenny Wilson, 50, has headed Cath Kidston since 2011. 

The chain is known for its vintage-style floral patterned bags and bed linen, and under his leadership has grown from just four stores overseas to 220.

Wilson has also been credited with doubling its sales from £60million to £130million.

He previously spent 19 years at jeans manufacturer Levi Strauss, where he became its European president.
