Jessie & James – Winter 2014 Collection

November 11th, 2014

jessiejames

The Jesse & James Winter 2014 range features playful, unique and traditional garments in tartans and checks with a punk inspired mood with their trademark absolutely extraordinary cuts!

I was so excited to discover this British label a while back (see my post on their first season here) and am still enamored of them three years and six seasons later. This dynamic duo (and couple) worked with fashion icon, Vivienne Westwood and you can really tell! James says: “Working in high-fashion with Vivienne Westwood teaches you how to cut and design clothes in an interesting and playful way, so everything that children’s clothes should be.”

OILILY – Fall/Winter 2014

November 4th, 2014

 

The Oilily Winter 2014 collection called: Garden of Eden is about believing. When you believe in something you should not be afraid to show it. Whether you believe in yourself, in the miracles of nature or in saints. Well, that’s poetic.

Ever since it was established in 1963, Oilily has been producing garments that are made with love and an eye for detail. In their Fall/Winter 2014 collection they feature wintry fabrics and textures with a modern twist, enriched with beautiful embroidery and funny details.

You can view the entire range on the Oilily site. (Lucky women in Europe can shop the women’s range!)And if you are in the US, here is the Oilily USA site.

Feather Drum Debut Collection

October 30th, 2014

feather_drum_4

 

I am just so taken with the poetry and whimsy of this new Australian label, Feather Drum, brainchild of Kelly-Lee, a designer who began in the UK, and who has lived in Germany, Italy and now the warmth of Sydney’s Northern Beaches in Australia.  Kelly-Lee has drawn inspiration from her life-long love of French design, her local environment and her natural bohemian style to produce this first range, entitled Dream Seeker.

An eclectic range that evokes the spirit of 70′s Woodstock through flared teepee pants, felt floppy hats, warm earthy colour palette, tie-dye and bespoke prints. Pure wool knits, soft and comfortable jersey, quality cottons and linen are the fine natural fabrics that make up the Dream Seeker Collection, a range which confirms the belief that any dream can come true if you work hard to catch it.

Atticus & Gilda – Luxury Nightwear and Accessories

October 17th, 2014

atticus_&_gilda_2

 

Atticus & Gilda has some of the most beautiful nightwear for kids I’ve ever seen! The sweet, retro quality of these outfits is just so adorable – especially love those touches like the bloomers and delicate little bows. This classical style of nightwear is what my girls go nuts over!

This label is very interesting as it’s the brainchild of  Lucy Gaiger and Conchita-Maria Scott. Both have fascinating careers alongside this labor of love in theatre, film and fashion, dressing stars such as Nicole Kidman, Helen Mirren and the cast of Mamma Mia just to mention a few! And all the trimmings in this nightwear were picked up along their theatrical travels so there’s a little bit of history in each garment.

Some of the pieces for the boys can be worn during the day. Scroll down!

The Fableists – Sustainable British Fashion

October 14th, 2014

fableists_2

Check out this fairly new British brand, The Fableists. The name is a blend of:  

[ fable + activitist ] Fable – a short story with a moral, Activist – Someone with a rebellious spirit who makes positive change happen

The Fableist look is based heavily on old school utilitarian work-wear and classic vintage clothing. And the label has no seasons. They’re designed to be worn all year round by both boys and girls. They are made to be passed on to someone else when they’re outgrown and even come with their own passport so you can track where they’ve been. That’s cool.

And they are course,  sustainable every  step of the way. And watch their very sweet video below.
