Baby Dior Spring 2016 – Sheer Elegance

December 21st, 2015

baby_dior_spring2016_5

 

Baby Dior for spring 2016 is here! The shoot took place in the gardens of Versailles, complete with cherubic children and little Dior handbags for girls strewn in the rosebushes.

Now, the one piece is this range which is astounding is the blue dress above. It is reminiscent of the Dior New Look with its cut that actually stands out with the tulle underneath. Very original and unique. All of the other looks are classic Dior beauty and grace.

This season, the boyswear is quite laid back and super easy to wear. There’s even a hoodie in there. To see the whole collection, go to the Dior site.

Modern Queen Kids Jewelry

November 4th, 2015

modern_queen_kids_10

 

This Modern Queen Kids jewelry story by my favorite kid’s fashion photographer Wanda Kujacz was shot in France at the Chateau de Courances which is owned by my dear and old friends, the De Ganays! (And here’s a little interesting fact: I shot one of my short films on these very grounds!)

Modern Queen Kids kids jewelry hails from Los Angeles and is inspired by their fantasy story of the fairytale Queen and all the children in her kingdom. The Spring/Summer 2015 and Fall/Winter 2015/2016 lines feature a stunning collection of fanciful jewelry, sparkling adventure sticks, crowns and warrior bands. Imagination, nature and story are all key here!

And what is unique about this brand is that every single rock, stone, feather, piece of wood or delightful discovery has been hand curated, painted and sparkled. Every spool of sparkly yarn, cut of soft fabric, and unique textile has been hand gathered from lands far and wide.

The first MODERN QUEEN kids children’s picture book is currently under development. It will tell the captivating and inspiring story of the Modern Queen and the children of her kingdom – featuring stunning Modern Queen kids photography.

Bellerose Kids – Fall/Winter 2015/16

October 26th, 2015

bellerose_fall_winter-2015

 

The Belgian brand, Bellerose Kids – Fall/Winter 2015/16 collection is full of sophisticated and streetwise looks which could very well be worn by adults if they made them a little larger. In fact, they blend very well with the Bellerose collections this season for Men and Women.

Knits play a big part and there are a few shaggy knits in there with a definite 80’s retro vibe going on. And tartans, blazers, puffer jackets and simple prints make this a very easy to wear season which is all about being laid back and comfortably rocking it!
