What an exquisite label I have found. This is the very first collection for Eden & Zoe and what an introduction! This cashmere knitwear for girls is sophisticated and understated. And the modern twist is so well incorporated – just a perfect balance. This first season is inspired by ballet and the flowing silhouettes of ballet wear, presented in the classic palettes of pink, white and gray. And of course, the girls all dream of wearing their dance clothes all the time. Right?!
The quality here is wonderful: delicate pointelle knits, luxurious cable patterns and graduated color stripes in a variety of ways. The pieces are contemporary and playful, and are made from 100% pure cashmere. We see a really great future for this beautiful brand. To shop all these lovely pieces, go here.
The Docs: These boots are so much FUN. The silhouette is reminiscent of classic Doc Martins, but the funky colours, sequin detailing, and patterned leather is anything but classic. This funky number is a perfect way to spruce up any chilly fall day. They can be purchased here.
Now that it’s officially fall, it’s time to welcome the new season officially with crunchy leaves, hot apple cider and, of course, the perfect fall boots! Kids love to play in falling leaves and we think its best to honour that childlike joy with the perfect pair of boots. Here’s a list of some of our favourites.
Our little Fashion Week on Bellissima Kids has been fun. I hope you enjoyed it too!
We wrap up with high quality Italian fashion. Il Gufo Autumn Winter 2013/2014 has done it again with this legendary Italian label’s impeccable fit, exquisite natural fabrics and extraordinary quality. “Children dressed as children” is the company’s motto. Soft and comfortable garments represent a contemporary interpretation of adult trends adapted to the world of children.
This season there is a super extended color palette with lovely pale greens, yellows, pinks, monochromes, khakis, brights, navy. And a wonderful mix of textures and occasions, from casual to very special occasion wear. Don’t miss the video below of their fashion parade and for all the styles, go to their website.
I am really, really loving this original brand from the Netherlands. Cakewalk Fall Winter 2013/14 is full of fantasy and beautiful, romantic photographic knits of paintings and flowers and just Boho style at its best! The combination of the many different textures, layers, prints and colors just works so beautifully. And what’s really great is there is a whole Mini collection for the younger girls.
Fashion Week on Bellissima charges on with a very strong Ready-To-Wear range in the Ralph Lauren Ralph Lauren Fall Winter 2013-2014 Girls' Collection.
And here's coverage from the recent Ralph Lauren's Autumn-Winter 2013-2014 runway show in New York’s Hamptons at the Wölffer Stables and very appropriate as the whole range is equestrian inspired! The collection includes tweed greatcoats, skinny side stripe leggings, black wool band jackets, leopard stripe leggings, bright skirts and tailored jackets. Featured guests were Jessica Alba, Christie Brinkley and their daughters.
And Fashion Week here at Bellissima continues with some Belgian brashness in the Bellerose Fall/Winter 2013 collection. This season is super laid back and casual with a beautiful palette of ochres, neutrals and rich colors with some checks and animal prints thrown in. To check out the whole range, go to their website!
Fashion Week here on Bellissima Kids continues with a very strong Australian brand: Udder! This is only their second collection and it's called Cabin Fever.
Not only do they produce these simple and comfy pieces with the lovely original prints, but super sweet soft toys like the penguin below.
Headed by artist/designer Fliss Dodd, each piece from the collections are made by hand from start to finish with fabrics printed employing traditional Indonesian antique techniques – such as Batik, Tie and Dye, Silk Screens with a manual brushing and airbrush as well as wood block print.
Fashion week on Bellissima continues with British brashness from Jessie & James. Really funky cuts here and nice use of plaids here. The boys are downright daring this season! And love the cinched waisted jackets over p00fy skirts for the girls. For more of this great collection, go to their website!
It's the annual Fashion Week here on Bellissima Kids to go hand-in-hand with Fashion Week New York!
And we kick off with loveliness from Baby Dior Autumn/Winter, 2103-2104. I just love this label. Always have. Probably always will.
For the girls: Beautifully draped dresses in satins and ruby red…classic drapes in creams and yes, feathers! There is a definite 20's and 50's fusion going on here. And even some 60's, Jackie influence with the smart pleated, double-breasted coats for the girls with mid-length sleeves. A very beautiful blend of eras.
For the boys… Read More
