Maed for Mini: Easy Like Sunday Morning

Maed for Mini: Easy Like Sunday Morning

Maed For Mini is an Amsterdam based conscious unisex kids clothing brand that we are delighted to now stock up to 10 years. It's one of those collections that I always want in me size and this season is no exception, their mature colour palettes combined with a sophisticated twist on animal prints get me every single time!

AW20, Easy Like Sunday Morning is inspired by those lazy Sunday moments you want to cherish forever - the patter of little feet entering the bedroom before sunrise, hot coffee and breakfast in bed and all the time in the world to read them their favourite books. The simple things in life that bring so much joy.

Summer at Home with Liewood

Summer at Home with Liewood

It looks increasingly likely that that summer will mean a lot more time at home for most of us this year and we've just taken delivery of a fantastic range of products from Liewood that we hope will help transform outside spaces into a fun place to be with your families during the sunny weather, together with a beautiful selection of swimwear, sun hats and pool/bath towels.
New Collection: Bobo Choses Growing Young - A Dance Romance

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

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!

 

The Earth Is Our Mother, We Must Take Care Of Her

The Earth Is Our Mother, We Must Take Care Of Her

Mini Rodini have long offered highly sustainable childrens-wear and their latest collection, "Mother Earth", uses old fishnet and ocean waste to make swimwear, recycled PET bottles to make jackets and cotton that is grown without carcinogenic pesticides and harmful chemicals. Harnessing energy from the wind and sun to sew it all together in the final stages, this a killer collection without killing the planet in the process.

The first of two drops this season introduces some truly fabulous animal characters, the most striking of which has to be the draco print, available in a number of beautiful colour combinations and countless styles across both baby and older children's pieces  - equally as awesome for the girls as boys!

And who wouldn't want to bump into these cute characters down at the stables this summer? Gorgeous horses and cheeky donkeys across dresses, skirts, tees, jumpers, rompers, hoodies and caps to name but a few!

 

 

 

 

 

 

For the very newly borns we are also now stocking smallest size pieces which include wrap bodysuits and leggings in the horse print and the essential basics -  leopard, navy and black.

Back To Basics

Back To Basics

Christmas - that crazy, wondrous period of excess - how we LOVE it!!  Inevitably we've overdone it again this year and whilst the focus still firmly remains on ploughing through the five (!) remaining boxes of chocolates before the end of December we have also had THAT conversation in our house - the carb-free, alcohol-free, oh my god I have a whole stone to lose one.  Yes, as of January 1st we are strictly BACK TO BASICS!

We've had a little re-jig on the shop floor this morning too, taking a moment to coo over those gorgeously outlandish seasonal prints and patterns we have so loved AW17 but also appreciating those practically perfect basics.  The ones that go with everything, the ones that tame a pair of intensely patterned leggings and those that come together to make a more muted yet equally beautiful and classic ensemble.

MarMar Copenhagen were a new brand for us this season, their gorgeous tulle skirt and gold lurex cardigan were one of our party picks in a previous blog post but its their newborn baby bits that have stolen our hearts.  The striped and black rib pictured below are also available in rose, blue, and melange grey, both beautiful and practical.

 

 

We love that leopard is considered a basic by Mini Rodini, its such an ace print and surprisingly versatile.  In our house the leggings are probably the most requested piece, I literally can't wash and dry them quickly enough for the next wear!  All bases are covered from short sleeve tees and grandad shirts to rompers and bodysuits, but its the fleeces that have been proving really useful during this cold spell.  I would literally live in the onesie if they made it big enough!

 

Gray Label brings calmness to the world of children’s fashion with their minimalistic basic line.  Their gently coloured wardrobe essentials are made from 100% organic cotton and are 100% GOTS certified, they really are quite simply the softest thing ever.  The tiny baby range make perfect newborn gifts whilst for the older kids we really love the pinafore dresses and salopettes with coordinating tees and cardigans as well the long sleeve playsuits for lazy days at home.

 

We adored the Tinycottons main collection inspired by the high plains of South America this Autumn/Winter (llama love!) and earlier this month were thrilled to announce that we are one of 25 hand-picked retailers worldwide to stock their new basics range.  The collection is full of minimal, premium quality basics in world-friendly organic cottons with simple, well thought out detailing.  We stocked up on bodysuits, bonnets, blankets and bibs in light beige for our most junior edition but there are some lovely undies for the older ones too.
