jess_and_james_3

 

The hyper talented British duo are at it again with the Jesse and James Spring Summer 2016  collection. I’ve blogged about this wonderful label a few times but in case you weren’t around, they worked with Vivienne Westwood and have had some of the Fashion Revolution rub off on them in their kidswear creations.

This season, we are treated with their floral and very sweet side for the girl’s collection with their signature interesting and arty cuts and bright red has a pretty huge participation as well as lovely candy colors. For the boys, a palette of baby blues, blacks and tans with the laid back style with arty touches.

February 8th, 2016

bonpoint_summer_16_2

 

What an incredibly beautiful collection the A Day in the Countryside, Bonpoint Summer 2016 is! I’m so glad to project myself into summer because as I’ve mentioned before, I’m not the biggest fan of winter.

This collection is vast and varied and they have captured the essence of the French countryside and all the summer activities and fun and all the outfits needed for each one. The special occasion wear for girls is so sweet and precious, and then there are crisp boating outfits for boys and girls, stylish overalls, colored polka dots with sunshine yellow, cherry motif knits and even some ethnic splashes.

Take a look at Bonpoint to see the whole collection.

January 18th, 2016

bobochose_winter2015

 

I know we are mid season and I’m late with this but the Bobo Choses Unknown Mountain Journey, Winter 2015/16 needs another look-in!

And why? Because it features a wonderful rustic, native American theme with pony silhouettes galloping all over many of the styles, feathers, and fishes and birds, and modernized zig-zag fir tree prints. They’ve captured the wild feeling of native Americana in a sweet, nostalgic, yet totally hip and modern way. More Bobo Choses magic.
