Bonjour: The Little House On The Prairie
AW22 is our fourth season with Bonjour, and the collection, entitled "Little House On The Prairie", may well be our favourite so far. Brimming with pieces that showcase traditional techniques such as embroidery, smocking, quilting and block-printing in colours, prints and textures influenced by designer Anne Millet's love of travel.
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.
1+ In The Family: Soft and Comfortable Baby Clothing
1+ In The Family first launched back in the Autumn of 2012 and was created by Gemma Mases, an experienced designer who is mum to three children herself and, by her admission, something of a children's fashion enthusiast!
The brand launch coincided at with the birth of the designer's niece, little baby Bruna and, as Gemma recounts, it is her sisters brave decision to start a family as a single mother that encouraged her to undertake a project that she had been dreaming for so long, and so 1+ In The Family was also born.
Oeuf: Heavy Petal
Brooklyn based Oeuf are a family-run studio and one of our longest-standing sustainable children’s brands. Formed back in 2002 by husband and wife team Michael Ryan and Sophie Demenge, they have been with us here at Junior Edition since the Spring/Summer season of 2018 and continue to delight us season after season with their beautifully playful childrenswear collections.
Combining intuitive design with a clean and simple style this is clothing that is designed to be loved hard and handed down. We know from personal experience how well it wears and washes and how enduring the styles and designs are having been passed from one child to the next here.
Ketiketa is an independent French brand founded in 2007 and directed by Alia Harbi, bringing together a team sharing a same clothing philosophy less is more and a same manufacturing ethic small is beautiful.
Ketiketa collections are designed in their studio in the fifth arrondisement of Paris and made in small-scale production in Kathmandu. Ketiketa promote traditional techniques, working intimately with artisans and small sewing workshops, as well as socially aware organisations.
One Family: Three Beautiful Brands
Rylee and Cru have been with us since SS18. Founded by Californian Illustrator Kelli Murray Larson and inspired by her own young family, their collections are brimming with high quality basics. Timeless, comfortable and easy-to-wear styles in soft and subtle seasonal colour palettes and prints, for babies right through to adult.
More recently the Rylee and Cru collective have added two new brands to their portfolio, Noralee and Quincy Mae, both of which are delighted to be stocking for the first time this season.
The Simple Folk
We are thrilled to welcome The Simple Folk to Junior Edition this Autumn. Minimalist, organic and oh-so beautiful clothing for babies and young children up to 10 years of age, whose roots in nature and the natural world can be keenly felt.
Conceived by two friends during their shared journey through the early years of motherhood, Jamie Morea (who is based in Portugal, amongst their community of talented sewers and knitters) and Abi Brown (who lives in and works from London) wanted to create clothing for children reflective of their own lifestyle and philosophy, products that they found surprisingly difficult to find elsewhere, in the sea of fast-fashion brands.
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.
Marsou - Parisian Upcycled and Recycled Fashion
New for this Spring/Summer season is Paris based French brand Marsou. Founded back in 2016 by Laetitia Flandre after 5 years of working for luxury fashion house Chanel, Laetitia combines the beauty of high end fashion with sound environmental credentials. Marsou is clothing that cares for the planet and we are thrilled to add them to our growing portfolio of beautiful, sustainable brands.
Marsou creations are designed, hand-dyed and handmade in Paris using a combination of up-cycled fabric leftovers that are sourced from luxury French fashion houses together with organic certified and eco friendly fabrics free from chemicals that might harm both the body and the Earth.
Poudre Organic: Para Sempre
Poudre Organic is the brainchild of Manon and Quentin who, having struggled to find affordable ecological and natural clothing for their third child, started to make a range of simple, practical and beautiful clothing for their daughters. Inspired by fabrics such as organic cotton muslin gauze and traditional, vintage styling this evolved into a much admired collection of clothing that other people both loved and wanted too and so in 2014, Poudre Organic was born.
As the name itself suggests, everything in the collection is organic and the clothing itself is ethically made in Portugal using only the softest organic cottons that are GOTS and OEKO-TEX certified as well as other low energy materials such as linen. Their designs are lovingly put together in small scale surroundings where the name of every seamstress is known to Manon and Quentin.
Wynken: Disco Safari
If there was an award for best collection name of the season I feel sure that Wynken would be claiming first place with the fabulous Disco Safari!
Inspired by the song lyrics of French electro band Yella, Wynken has created a collection of warm and earthy tones with burnt orange, red earth and lion stripe combined with purple haze and hot blush pink and red. Whilst this season's prints are inspired by 70’s disco club flyers, African wax prints and animals of the savannah. Dream theme!!
All Aboard! Mini Rodini on the Trans-Siberian Railway
Mini Rodini are a firm favourite here at Junior Edition - they are one of our longest standing brands and like you, we love their quirky and colourful prints, the quality (their clothing washes and wears SO well) and most importantly of all, that everything is manufactured with care for animals, people and the planet.
Their latest collection is an absolute corker and draws its inspiration from the slow and romantic journey by train across the continent on the Trans-Siberian Railway. Prints and styles represent a number of different stops en route that include Stockholm, Moscow, Ulan Bator, Beijing and Seoul.
