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.
Say Hello To Bonjour
Bonjour was created in 2014 by Anne Millet. A stylist in children's fashion for over 20 years, she wanted to create a more personal universe, one influenced by a love of travel and the colours and textures found in far flung flea markets.
Bonjour is a family business - Anne and her partner Yorick joined forces to help develop the brand, together creating the trademark aesthetic and imagery that is so loved by parents and their children the world over.
We are delighted to be stocking Bonjour here at Junior Edition for our third season now and truly believe that Anne and Yorick have created something really quite magical.
Lali Kids: Inspired By Traditions From The Past
Lali Kids are new to Junior Edition for the Spring/Summer season of 2022. A line of clothing for both babies and older children that is rooted in nostalgia and draws its inspiration from historic traditions. Every new collection is as beautiful as the last - these are pieces to be played in, cherished and then passed down to be worn and loved again.
Lali Studio is a women-led collective that was founded by designer Kinnari McDevitt back in 2015. Passionate about native Indian textiles that are reminiscent of her own childhood, her collections showcase the traditional crafts of artisan printers, weaver and makers.
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.
Nellie Quats: Liberty and Linen
Nellie Quats is the most beautiful childrenswear brand for girls, from baby up to 10 years. Designed in London and made in Portugal the collection is made up of pieces that are both comfortable and stylish with a splash of nostalgia. This is clothing that is more than just pretty; oversized or adjustable in design, it is made for active and growing children, bridging that gap between comfort and style.
Made predominantly from Liberty print and linen the clothing is durable, easy to wear and easy to care for, created in the highest quality natural fabric. This is slow fashion; styles with enduring appeal, designed to be consumed more thoughtfully and worn by more than just the one child.
Liilu creates timeless, sustainable clothing that is both minimalistic in design and classic in style. Sibylle Pal is the German designer and mother of two at the heart of this brand and her collections are very much rooted in memories from her own childhood and influenced by years of travel.
The collection itself is manufactured in Portugal, made entirely from 100% organic cotton making it wonderfully kind to the most sensitive of skins. Every Liilu piece has gone through a special washing technique that gives the garment a unique softness and signature scent.
We are delighted to welcome beautiful French brand Bachaā to Junior Edition for the first time this season. Created in Paris in 2019 as an expression of a love for and connection to India, the name Bachaā is the phonetic transcription of the name that parents affectionately give to their children in Hindi (pronounced BaTchaA).
Bachaā create the prettiest clothing using artisanal processes such as block printing and hand embroidered detailing, for this reason no two garments are quite the same, every piece has its own slice of unique!
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.
Welcome to Weekend House Kids!
We are delighted to reveal, and give a warm welcome to, our first new brand of 2021, the marvellous Weekend House Kids!
Weekend House Kids was established in 2018, in Mataró, a small sea town North of Barcelona with the intention of designing and creating a premium quality children's clothing with a quintessential Mediterranean feel. As a brand they are committed to responsible and environmentally conscious manufacturing and proudly put awareness about the planet we live in first. Their collections too are very much inspired by the natural world, with flora and animals woven into their collections in the most charming of designs.
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.
Repose: The Other Side of Paradise
Clothing wise it's been one the most unusual to date, with collections trickling through in multiple drops across almost all brands due to impact on production and distribution during this tumultuous year.
One brand that was already doing things differently (and by their own free will I hasten to add) is Amsterdam based Repose AMS who moved to a refreshingly different approach to selling clothes at the end of 2019, releasing four collections across the year - two main and two capsule, aimed at bucking the trend of selling summer shorts in February and winter coats in July.
