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.
Meadows: Romantic and Feminine Womenswear
We are thrilled to add Meadows to our womenswear portfolio here at Junior Edition and judging by the feedback to our instagram post introducing the brand so you are you!

We really look forward to seeing your pictures when the warm weather returns and if you are happy for us to share your images on instagram don't forget to tag us!
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.
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.
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.
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.
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.
ET Phone Mini Rodini
I was never not going to write about this collaboration, E.T has been my favourite film forever, I have watched it scores and scores of times, I have a whole box of ET themed merch in tucked away in my loft and a giant stuffed toy in my room, I cried when I rode on the ride at Universal Studios in Florida. You get the picture, OBSESSED.
Keeping this collection a secret was harder for me than the first 3 months of pregnancy, I have basically been almost self-combusting with excitement in the months since it was first announced and it is such a relief to finally be able to shout it from the rooftops - ET PHONE MINI RODINI HAS ARRIVED!!!
Emile et Ida: AW20 - Au Clair De La Lune
Emile et Ida, hailing from France, is the brainchild of brand creators Delphine and Céline whose family history is steeped in fashion. The grandchildren of tailors, Emile et Ida was established in 2010 as a tribute to their parents and is a brand renowned for its soft and natural fabrics, retro vibe and subtle colour palette.
Their AW20 collection is nothing short of sensational and EEEEEP in comes in grown-up sizes too!!
The Animals Observatory AW20 - A Love Story with Pop Iconography
The first instalment of the (quite frankly AMAZING) AW20 collection from The Animals Observatory dropped on July 21st at the slightly un-godly hour of 6am CET (thats 5am UK time folks, 5am!) so armed with lots of strong coffee and slightly bleary-eyed we hit the launch button and waited for lift-off!
Launch days are always a slightly apprehensive affair, will you love it as much as we do, did we plump for the pieces you are going to love? The answer was a resounding YES and we were thrilled to read all of your positive feedback and see several pieces and sizes sell out in those first couple of days. When you get all the feels, we get the all the feels too so thank you!
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.
Misha and Puff
We love it when there is buzz around a brand or a collection and Misha & Puff has brought it in bucketloads these last couple of weeks! We had so many messages from customers dying to find out what we are stocking this season and the enthusiasm has been infectious, we were so excited to make the collection live yesterday at 3pm (or so, after a hugely stressful technical glitch!) and we couldn't be more grateful for your response, thank you for each and every one of your glorious orders which we are pleased to say will be winging their way to you early next week.
For anyone not familiar with Misha & Puff, the brand was founded by stylist Anna Wallack in 2011. From the humble beginnings of the very first season when handmade samples were personally carried shop-to-shop to generate interest, Misha & Puff has grown into the business we know and love today. Crucially there is one thing that hasn't changed in all that time and that is the ethos that is central the brand, to make things the best way possible, in the nicest way possible.
Each Misha & Puff piece is thoughtfully designed before being lovingly handcrafted in Peru by a team of dedicated and talented knitters, all of whom are very much part of the Misha & Puff family and many of which have been a part of the team since the very beginning. The knitters take great pride in their creations (rightfully so because they are things of beauty!) and on the hang tag of each garment you will find the name of the person responsible for creating that individual item.
Working with premium natural fibres, the merino in Misha and Puff designs is incredibly soft, hard-wearing and itch-free whilst the hand-dying process creates a truly unique and rich depth of colour. SS20 also features luxurious pima cotton yarn and the new collection is perfect for those sunny days ahead.
The ever-popular popcorn sweaters and cardigans return in the prettiest colour palate - vanilla, caramel, coral, dusty blue, sunflower and faded space dye. It's so hard to choose a favourite but I think it's the dusty blue that has my heart this season, available from 12 months all the way up to 8 years.
The must have item of the season has to be the skating pond skirt which completely sold out in all seven colour-ways in just a couple of hours! We can't wait for your images to start filtering though on instagram (please do tag us) as it was one of our personal favourites this season too. Pleated, and complete with attached bloomers this piece encapsulates Misha & Puff's signature style, combining beauty with practicality.
If knitwear isn't your thing there are some lovely pieces in organic pima cotton carrying the beautiful orchard design. We have the balloon romper, collar tee, cycling shorts and the scout dress (pictured) available in both mint and sunflower. The dress is just so easy to style with a built-in kerchief together with a ruffle hem. Just beautiful.
There are some beautiful t-strap shoes and sandals too, which are so versatile and would look fab with just about everything.
Misha and Puff clothes are built to last, and meant to be passed down. Shop the full collection online here and prepare to be wowed!
