Hush Cubby by Freyja Sewell

October 2nd, 2014

HUSH-Chair-1

 

HUSH is a seating pod and cubby by Freyja Sewell that’s designed to create a cozy and private space, much like a womb. And most kids just love to play in cubbies and secret places, maybe because it reminds them of the womb.

Paris by Chanel – Inside Chanel

October 1st, 2014

 

I just had to publish this video on Bellissima Kids - a very stylish and upbeat history of the House of Chanel. And I can’t resist because when I was a young fashion design student, Coco Chanel was one of my idols. So much so that I named my first and second rundown student cars after her! Yep. Coco and Coco 2. And my years in Paris on top of it…

Here’s the synopsis: Immerse yourself in the street where it all began, la rue Cambon. Leave the black and white sobriety of the Haute Couture salon and enter the baroque world of Mademoiselle’s apartment. Then, indulge at the Ritz, before opening the door of 18, Place Vendôme to discover the world of Fine Jewelry. Finally, gaze upon the monumental theater of the CHANEL fashion shows: the Grand Palais.

Hope you enjoyed it.

Jottum Winter 2014-2015

September 29th, 2014

jottum_9

 

What a lovely season Jottum Winter 2014 – 2015 is! This is one of my very favorite Dutch labels. The lyrical fantasy, and romance of this collection is in keeping with their trademark style. They have the usual antique prints and a nice blending of the modern gold and black and neutrals. And then the fairytale cottage theme (see matching bag below) just pulls at my heartstrings! For more of Jottum go to their site.

GIANT DINOSAUR IN MELBOURNE PARK TO GET KIDS OUT OF THE HOUSE

September 24th, 2014

Medibank_Muttaburrasaurus027

 

This is quite extraordinary. A giant interactive dinosaur based on a Muttaburrasaurus has been built in a playground in Melbourne, with the aim of the Medibank project to get youngsters out and exploring outside more.  The Muttaburrassurus was discovered by a farmer in 1963 – stumbling across a fossilised skeleton near the Queensland town of Muttaburra. I used to live in Melbourne and they never had anything like this.

Efvva – Handpainted Kidswear from Poland

September 23rd, 2014

efvva_2

 

Here is a very original and extraordinary newish Polish label, Efvva. Ewa Wrobel-Hultqvist, the founder of Efvva designs unique, limited edition clothing and shoes for children from 3 months to 6 years. The clothes are all made from natural, high quality materials and are handmade in Poland.

Ewa grew up in an artistic family where design and art were omnipresent so when she had her own child she merged the three loves of her life: painting, design, and children together. Enter Efvva!

Her exquisite prints have a different theme each season and are inspired by different artists. This Fall/Winter 2014 season which is called Water is inspired by Hokusai Katsushika, a Japanese artist, ukiyo-e painter and printmaker of the Edo period (1603 and 1868).  So, not only are these clothes works of art, but we learn about art history and artists through them. And the photos are so dreamy and mythical as well.

To view the whole range and past ranges, go to the Efvva website.
