AliOli Spring/Summer 2014 has taken English Kid’s fashion to romantic to sweet and high levels! All of this season’s styles are breezy, in cool cottons, light colors, and in comfortable cuts for kidsplay. I am a sucker for boys in those cotton Indian inspired shirts. Their gorgeous floral headdresses give the range a sort of Shakespearean fantasy feeling. What little girl wouldn’t love one of those? To see the whole range, go to the AliOli Kids website.
Hebe clothes from Latvia produces casual wear that can be used by kids from 0 till 12 years. And Hebe Spring/Summer 2014 is a rhapsody of original illustration prints designed by their collaborator, Latvian artist Liga Kitchen. The simplicity of this range has something so charming and simple about it that evokes such a sweet innocence.
Made of high quality, soft and easily washable fabrics, which are produced in Europe, Hebe clothes are very comfortable and beautifully crafted. All Hebe garments are characterised with simplicity and love for details with focus on quality and unique design.
What a dreamy and beautiful label, Pierrot la Lune is. It takes me back to lazy European summers in the countryside. This Danish label was established only last year by designer Emilie Ventujol as the realization of a lifelong dream of creating timeless and sophisticated yet playful and informal children swear.
The Pierrot la Lune look has a touch of nostalgia; a dreamy and magical aesthetic with a nod to old movies from a retro childhood in southern Europe. The cuts are simple and wearable, the colours are subdued, and the classic stripes and beautiful floral prints bare resemblance of faded wallpapers or quilts from grandma’s attic.
What a completely adorable collection Bang Bang Copenhagen Spring/ Summer 2014 is. Absolutely one of my favorite Scandi brands! The denim dress above particularly caught my eye with its cat collar and pleated sleeves. And the rest of the collection is heavy with playful black and white, bold color blocks and fun and funky touches. Check the whole collection out on the Bang Bang Copenhagen website!
Soft Gallery Spring Summer 2014 really resonates with me. This collection is called “Nostalgia” and really captures moments and feelings from our childhoods and creates memories for our kids – The romance of retro flower prints, pretty butterflies, creatures and popsicles.
This original and creative Danish label creates clothing for kids and women, with beautiful prints and handmade embroideries and simple and artful pattern cutting which lets kids move freely. All of their collections are made in collaboration with artists, which make every piece of clothing a real pearl. Every collection has a theme and beautiful color palette which goes with the season.
What a cute and girly collection Millions of Colors has in store for us this Spring/Summer! Lots of stars, stripes, and big polka dots teamed with reds, whites, blues and shades of gray. Love the little rosettes on the shorts below. To see the whole range, go to Millions of Colors website.
I have been just dying to share this brand new label I discovered at Playtime a couple of weeks ago. My Moon is the brainchild of designer Dionne Ting and she just uses the most pure and quality fabrics with sophisticated and comfortable styling. And as the photo says, it’s all made in San Francisco – organic and sustainable, printed with non-toxic water-based inks and packaged with eco-friendliness.
My Moon is in its very first season and the collection is debuting with a very select capsule. I look forward to seeing more and more of this brand. To view all of its loveliness, go to My Moon website.
Mon Petit Atelier: This is the first season for designer, Ruby Giroux and what a strong entrée with the superior quality, expert treatment of fabrics and knits, original illustrative prints and direction of her brand. And oh, did I mention that the clothes are beautiful?! Definitely one to watch.
What a fantastic edition of Playtime New York this was! I visited on Saturday and was blown away as usual by the innovation, talent and beauty in this exciting industry called Children’s Fashion! And Playtime itself is really growing and developing. This was the biggest show yet. I can’t wait to see what’s in store for us in the coming seasons!
And I have chosen some highlights of new labels or labels that are new to Playtime that I was particularly taken with! And there’s a bit of baby fashion too thrown in here! And I must say that I was really blown away by the number of fantastic, new French labels. The French are really taking the Kid’s Fashion world by storm.
