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.

I just discovered this Swedish and very wonderful kid’s fashion photographer named Malin Ngoie who hails from the UK. She has a theatricality and real talent with storytelling. After completing an HND in Fashion Photography at the London College of Fashion and later a photography degree in Reading, she now specializes in Children’s Fashion Photography and has shot many, many of the top kidswear labels.
Fuko Handmade from Japan makes the most adorable basics for baby! I don’t know much about this label except that I like what they, do and they are handmade.
Here is my little rundown of Playtime New York, for this season. It’s a little behind but I had been so preoccupied with a big event for my other life (jeanneomlor.com). But better late than not at all!
These are some new labels and some beautiful things I saw at this edition of Playtime, February, 2015.
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
What do I bring you this time from Barcelona? Four fantastic kids fashion brands! I’m pretty sure you already know some of them, but some others not. Hope you’ll enjoy my selection!
Let’s start with the littlest ones: clothing and accessories for new borns and babies by Cranc& Friends, founded by Carolina in 2012. Inspired by nature, sea, technology and using 100% organic cotton and toxic free printings, Cranc & Friends creates lovely beannies, booties, pacifier holders and soft toys for newborns. Sweet and colorful illustrations and minimal design for a warm welcome to newborns.
What an exciting explosion of bright flowers, animals, colors and textures Anne Kurris has in store for for the Anne Kurris, SS 2015 collection! I always look forward to seeing what she comes up with each season as she is really one of my all time faves. I am particularly excited to see what she has done this season with the boyswear…colorful, yet masculine graphic treatments. Love!
I am so excited about Mini Rodini Spring/Summer ’15 collection ‘See You Later Alligator’ for two reasons:
1. It is all about sea life and we are crazy about anything aquatic. In fact, the girls did a whole summer camp last summer called “Under the Sea”. And we did a whole interaction with dolphins in the Bahamas. And because the illustrations are so amazing, daring and a real statement, yet comfortable and wearable.
2. This collection is made from the finest weave, recycled from PET bottles and other plastic waste. Which is fitting because it’s the very same waste that pollutes our seas and which marine mammals often eat and die.
Autumn Cashmere Kids, Spring Summer- 2015 is a really wearable, bright and timeless collection. A mix of cashmere of course and cottons, chambrays and even leather comprise this range. Very closely tied in with the women’s range but not any exact copies here! I love the ease and crispness of this range and simple styling with effective detailing to make the styles pop without being too heavy.
