Bobo Choses Forever Now
Bobo Choses’ new AW22 collection Forever Now is all about time. What is time? Who is it? What does it want? Whilst it might prove to be a tricky thing for adults to get to grips with this is definitely not the case for children who have their own way of relating to it. For them, time is flexible, malleable, friendly, and a constant present.
Talking Bobo is a way of being. Non-sensical to adults but a very real and natural way of being for children, where imaginations run wild and reality is turned on its head.
The collection itself is born out of a series of original stories and poems (also available to buy) that eventually come to life in the form of prints and shapes you find in every range from the magical universe of Bobo Choses.

Bobo Choses: For President
Bobo Choses is our first Spring/Summer collection of the year and WOW! What a way to start... For President is everything we love about Bobo - soft naturals meet beautiful bolds and quirky, colourful prints abound.
Ear-to-ear smiles, friendly pet lions, funny pepper presidential candidates, big tomatoes and smiley-fingered hands - this collection is SO much fun and one the kids are guaranteed to enjoy wearing.
Be Whatever You Want to Be with Bobo Choses Catalogue of Marvellous Trades
It's here! The eagerly awaited AW20 collection by Bobo Choses, The Catalogue of Marvellous Trades.
Firstly, WOW What a week last week! And what a BUZZ launch day was! Drop 1 landed with us on Thursday 16th July and the excitement in the days that ran up to launch was palpable. We always thought this collection was something pretty special and to see that cross-over amongst all of our wonderful customers really was a joy to behold, thanks to each and every one of you for your orders.
New Collection: Bobo Choses Growing Young - The Catalogue of Marvellous Trades
There has been SO MUCH buzz around the new Bobo Choses AW20 collection and there's absolutely no denying that when I first laid eyes on this season I let out an audible gasp, this is Bobo at their absolute finest!
The adult collection is first out of the traps this season so you can spoil yourself before indulging the kids.....The Catalogue of Marvellous Trades is a celebration of creativity, possibility and freedom and it's a little bit amazing!
Mama Still Got It!
I think for so many of us, dressing our kids in gorgeous clothes give us great pleasure. Equally, I think that for some (certainly me) the investment both emotionally and financially in our own wardrobes has waned slightly, now that there are small people to dress. And certainly (for many mamas) things aren't in the same place or the same shape as they used to be, having undertaken the immense task of carrying/birthing children and breast-feeding.
I am a default jeans and trainers kind of girl, and there's nothing wrong with that. It's a practical, comfortable and safe look that works well. There's occasions though where I do find myself feeling a bit meh as my staying in and going out clothes are one and the same! And so we've decided to broaden our horizons a bit and branch out a little further than we have historically into womenswear, with so many of our favourite baby and kid brands having adult offshoots with some really lovely pieces.
Emile et Ida is one of the womenswear brands we have decided to focus on this spring/summer - they design and produce deliciously retro basics with folky roots. Its a really wearable collection and one that can be as easily dressed up as down plus (bonus!) lots of tees and tops that look great with jeans. With a colour palette of caramel and ecru together with dusty pinks and blues we are stocking skirts and dresses too from extra small to large.
We are also carrying Liilu in mama sizes this season for the first time. A really beautiful collection with a timeless feel. Every piece is made from 100% organic cotton muslin and we have a small but perfectly formed collection of dresses, skirts, shirts and blouses available but be quick, we are already down to the last item in several designs!
We are also delighted to be stocking Bobo Choses Growing Young again this Spring/Summer. A Dance Romance is an immensely fun collection that features prints and shapes from the kids collection. They have taken some of the very best pieces and given them just a little bit of a twist - we have some stand-out t shirts and sweatshirts (I may have brought them all!) but also some gorgeous knits and some beautifully printed shirts and midi skirts and so much more besides!
With additional pieces from Rylee and Cru, Mingo, My Moumout, Poudre Organic, Monkind, The Animals Observatory and Le Petit Germain plus adult sunglasses from Izipizi, its well worth a browse! We are currently in the throes of making our website a bit more user friendly, its still a work in progress but we have created a Womenswear section and you are now able to search by price, size and brand, it makes such a difference!
Womenswear is an area we hope to continue to grow.....we may well top up our existing collections this season and have already placed orders for Autumn/Winter 2020. Shop what we have so far online here, and watch this space for further news!
Love Is In The Air
Love is very much in the air and whether you engage with the hoo-ha of Valentines Day or not, one thing that can't have gone unnoticed is the proliferation of hearts this season, lots of our favourite brands have incorporated them into their collections and we are absolutely head over heels with the results!
Mini Rodini launched the second chapter of their Diana collection yesterday and they have gone big with lots of beautiful hearts, featuring singularly on dresses, blouses, bodysuits and sun hats as well as working in combination with horseshoes and clovers for the amazing lucky charm laden print - we have this in dresses, tees and leggings for older kids up to age 11 and it also works beautifully for babies, check out this adorable little newborn set!
There is absolutely no way we could not make mention of the sensational cap from this chapter. Mini Rodini have absolutely nailed it with their butterfly cap in an all over heart print. A red butterfly patch in up-cycled polysatin decorates the front and the cap has an adjustable strap to enable that perfect fit. We think its a little bit out of this world!
Tinycottons launched their SS20 collection back in January and it has been so well received! Dolce Far Niente, as the name suggests, is rooted in all things Italian and reflects on the art of not doing very much at all and enjoying the simple pleasures that life brings. We love the cute cross back dress with the all over hearts print in red and brick (and that enviable bubble gum bubble!). Made in soft babbula cotton it has a button front opening and side seam pockets, super cute and really wearable to boot.
Bobo Choses are also bringing us a whole lot of love this season. The striking all over heart print features on dresses, a skirt, a baby blouse and trousers and a gorgeous swimsuit with crossover ruffle straps available in both kid and baby sizes.
Never one to be left in anyone's shadow is The Animals Observatory, their brilliant Weasel Dress in an all-over blue heart print is gathered at the waist and features ruffled cap sleeves. Available in kids age 2 - 10 years this is a really versatile dress that works as well with trainers and a cap as it does for a special occasion!
Whether you're feeling the love or not this Valentines, indulge in a little retail therapy to help keep spirits high - with lots of spring/summer collections now online to inject a little sunshine into everyone's lives. Happy Valentines y'all!
New Collection: Bobo Choses Growing Young - A Dance Romance
Hands up who has impeccably dressed kids but often neglects to buy anything new for themselves? I know I'm not alone! With the latest Bobo Choses Growing Young collection we are all out of excuses. Featuring prints and shapes from the kids collection, Bobo have given some very best pieces a little twist and come up with the most amazing capsule collection for growing-young adults who appreciate creativity and love to have fun!
For those not already familiar with their SS20 collection, A Dance Romance, it is (as the name suggests!) inspired by the joyful world of dance. With this collection, young-at-heart dancers are encouraged to let themselves go, feel the rhythm, dance and feel happy and if you've seen any of their brilliantly bonkers promo videos you'll have seen what they mean!
There are too many womenswear pieces on our must-have list to feature here. There are some stand-out t-shirts and sweatshirts, some lovely knits (we adore the oranges knitted short sleeve jumper) but also some beautiful printed shirts and midi skirts.
This is our second season carrying Growing Young and our first to feature menswear, we have chosen a few keys pieces that we think will appeal, taking twinning possibilities to tripletting possibilities if you are that way inclined!
Accessories include beautiful silky scarfs in either a leopard, chachacha kiss and all over pineapple print and some very cute short socks available in lips and leopard!
For the home we love these bamboo plates and cups - available separately as sets of four with the plates priced at just £26 and cups at £17.
"When dancing, there isn’t a right way and a wrong way, there’s just your own way. Dancing gives us a feeling of happiness; makes ourselves feel confident and becomes a way to express what we cannot put into words."
Available online now in women's sizes XS-L and Mens S-L.
New collection: Bobo Choses - A Dance Romance
We are thrilled to finally reveal the new collection from Bobo Choses for SS20, A Dance Romance.
Inspired by the world of dance as seen through a child's eyes, the collection reflects both their passion for movement and the fun and free spirited way in which they express themselves through the medium of dance, there's no wrong or right way, just their own way!
Comfort meets vintage-retro style this season in a cheerful symphony of colours, prints and textures. We adore the look and feel of this tracksuit, available as separates but absolutely awesome together!
There is some beautiful attention to detail in this collection, embroidery detailing, ribbon and a variety of other finishes that give things that special edge. Wrinkled woven fabrics, elastic and structured fleece, organic cotton knitwear, garment dye knitwear and digital watercolor effect prints are just some of the special characteristics of this movement tribute collection.
We have so much love for the accessories this season, our personal favourites have to be the silky scarfs available in leopard, pineapple and the chachacha kiss, the blue wide brimmed sunhat, the yellow striped elephant school bag and the brilliant RIGHT and LEFT trainers available in sizes EUR 24-35 (UK Infant 7 to Junior 3) to help keep those dance moves in check!
Available in baby sizes 3/6 months through to 24/36 months and kids 2/3 years right up to 10/11 years. Shop the full range here or visit our lovely shop in the heart of Brighton's North Laine where we will have some of the key pieces available to lust after in the coming weeks!
Bobo Choses Presents......The Happysads!
With the summer sunshine still blazing outside you might be wondering if its even possible to start getting excited about what Autumn/Winter has to offer. For the avoidance of doubt, that will be a big fat YES IT IS!!!
When the latest Bobo collection arrived with us last week (ALL FIFTY BOXES OF IT!!!) we couldn't wait to see what was inside and boy we have not been disappointed, their latest collection is EVERYTHING!
For AW18 Bobo Choses presents the coolest little band we have ever seen. With songs about children and the roller coaster of feelings they experience, they are The Happysads!
This collection is completely inspired by kids and how they express their emotions at an age where it can be hard for them to relay how they are really feeling - we've all been there...the temper tantrums and meltdowns one minute and the joy and exhilaration of being young and free the next - moods as changeable as the weather!
As for our favourite pieces, could there be a task any more impossible? The combination of colours, prints, fabrics and styles makes it so hard to choose but we'll give it our best shot.
For the teeny-tinies we're absolutely loving the rompers.....
And for the big kids......how is it even possible to look this cool!?!?
There is so much more to see in-store and online, including the most gorgeous fleece jackets and winter coats, come visit us in our Brighton store, the sun is shining and the beach beckons! Or browse the full collection online here - you will not be disappointed.
PS - Just because, I'll leave you with this....
