Pure funk from Ice Iceberg Junior Campaign Spring Summer 2015/Boys. Iceberg is the label of iconic artistic director Jean Charles de Castelbajac and there is also Iceberg for Women and Men. And I love what they are doing in this boy’s label. Great, wearable staples which have been reinvented with some cool boyish graphics.
Babesta has opened in Brookfield Place! If you are in New York, you might not have heard of the fabulous new shopping complex, Brookfield Place which is situated on the water’s edge in Tribeca! And my friends Jen and Aslan of Babesta have opened an amazing new store there in addition to their other two stores also in Tribeca.
They have the very latest Bugaboos Runner strollers (they are the only ones in NYC who have them as yet) and you can even take them for a test drive. Yep.
And lots of new funky stuff here like:
More charming totally kid stuff for the Spanish brand: Bobo Choses Spring Summer 2015 Collection. This “Guess Who’s Coming for Breakfast” calls the kids to have breakfast with the most clumsy, shy and friendly monsters: Mr Nail, Bob the Monster, Clever the Ghost, and The Omelettes will become your best guests!
Another funny, colorful and completely delightful range that is long on funny, sketched monsters and plenty of watermelons and funky fruit. Available on the Bobo Choses website.
We just got our wonderful spandex fashion leggings from Ché Rie. The girls chose the sweet Pink Rose Leggings below, and I can tell you, it is very difficult to choose as they have so many colorful and wonderful options. And they keep adding more all the time. And they have Mom leggings to match the girls’ ones so there is no Princess Envy going on!
Pistol Star is a blue hyper giant star, 25,000 years light of Earth and near the center of the Milky Way, following the direction of the Sagittarius constellation. It is one of the most massive stars known to us, and it has 10 million times more light than the our sun, producing as much energy in six seconds as the sun produces in one year. What a great name for a kid’s brand!
Lila Colzani, founder of another Brazilian women and men’s brand called Colcci -you know, the one where Gisele sashayed for the last time during SP Fashion Week recently, is the label’s owner and designer. After the birth of her son Pedro in 2007, she and her husband Thiago Volpato realized that there was a gap in the market for children’s street wear designed for urban and active kids.
A very warm welcome to our new sponsor, Smokks! We are so happy to have Smokks on Bellissima Kids because my daughters have some Smokks themselves and absolutely love them. I also am a huge fan because these dresses are so, so easy to get on the girls (no zip, buttons or anything) and transition so well from play to a bit more dressy. And they also pack really well for traveling.
Here is our little creative shoot of the lovely retro nightwear by Atticus & Gilda. I thought it would be good to see how this wonderful nightwear looks when the girls are actually sleeping. And the quality of these creations is even more wonderful and high quality up close and personal. I am so in love with the adorable bloomers with the pink set. So Little Women! Take a look at all the other wonderful things that this talented label has to offer.
Well, the Serbian Rockstar of British Fashion, Roksanda Ilincic has done it again with this season’s offerings for her kidswear line Blossom Spring Summer 2015. Her color blocking that she is known for (and which is reminiscent of the Sonia Delaunay) takes the front line here and she has added some interesting quilty looking fabric for a very sculptural look. And only the third season in, she has really found her stride in this more evolved collection for girls.
