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.

Billybandit for Boys

April 9th, 2015

billybandit-1

 

Here’s a brand new French brand just for the boys from the people who brought us Billieblush, the girls equivalent label which has been around for a couple of years and is going fairly strong in Europe.

Billybandit appeals to all that is boyish. yet colorful, playful, sporty and exciting at the same time. Very refreshing to see a label dedicated to boys that is not resorting to standard esthetics. And with a mid-range price point, very appealing. You can find the first range on Children Salon.

With gorgeous dresses depicting birds by Danielle Wilson, this creative team made this world of whimsical flamingos, swans, peacocks and parrots.

Quis Quis, Spring/Summer 2015

March 23rd, 2015

quis_quis_4

 

Quis Quis is the brainchild of Italian designer, Stefano Cavalleri who also founded I Pinco Pallino. Quis Quis is ornate, fine Italian design at its best. The lace work and embroidery in the dresses above is extraordinary. The girls’ range is more extended than the boys and does include some more casual play clothes that Mama won’t be too worried about ruining! But there are some very classic summer suits like the blue one (see below) that makes a gentleman out of your little man!

Stefano has another label that he started recently called From the World which is more ethnic inspired.

Make sure you watch the beautiful and dreamy short film of this collection, (below), of Summer Fairy Garden, directed by Mauro Balletti shot in the Italian countryside and in the gardens of Villa Barbarigo Pizzoni Ardemani featuring QuisQuis Spring Summer 2015 collection.

Dolce & Gabbana’s “Viva la Mamma” show

March 2nd, 2015

dolce_gabbana_3

 

Dolce & Gabbana’s motherhood-themed Fall/Winter 2015 show at Milan Fashion Week on Sunday featured models carrying babies and prints inspired by children’s doodles. I know that there has been criticism about the way moms are being portrayed in this parade (not sure how we should be portraying them in a fashion show!) but really, I’m just glad to see pregnant women and moms with babies on the runway at all. And much of the garments were just completely lovely, even for moms.

The show, which was called “Viva la Mamma,” also included giant jewel-studded headphones and colorful silk prints based on kids’ drawings. Read More
