Long Live The Queen!
We have welcomed a few new and really beautiful brands to Junior Edition this season. The absolutely gorgeous work of Dutch designer Hetty Van Driest and her brand Long Live The Queen has already become a firm favourite with us.
Now in their fifth season, Long Live The Queen SS20 is a collection of ethically produced and environmentally conscious girls clothing which we are stocking in ages 2-10 years. Made from up-cycled fabrics, organic jersey and super soft knits, all carefully selected to help reduce the footprint left behind.
Favourite pieces this season? Honestly, I love it all and if it came in adult sizes I would most definitely be wearing it. The puff sleeves are an absolute winner for me and are seen across several tees (in golden yellow and rose dawn) as well as the gorgeous short and long and sleeve terry sweaters which come in lavender, bronze, multicoloured stripes and green dots (short sleeved) and toffee and vintage blue (long sleeved).
I'm a sucker for short shorts (yes I was born in the 70's!) and terry too! Both the brown spots and multicoloured stripes shorts look great with their coordinating sleeveless tops with a ruffle collar. A beautifully practical combo that looks divine too!
Of the dresses, the candy stripe tiered maxi is a personal favourite. It can be dressed up to make the perfect party dress but looks equally as stylish with a pair of trainers and works really well layered with the short-sleeved lavender terry sweater.
I also really love the tie dye effect on the gorgeous off-white sweater, it takes me back to carefree summer days in Ibiza, wandering around the hippy markets, soaking up the sunshine and the atmosphere. What I would give to be there now! It's all turned rather cold here in Brighton again today. Still, summer is just about in our grasp and we've had a few really glorious spring days recently to help us on our way. I'll give it a couple of weeks before the kids beg me to roll out the paddling pool in the back garden!
