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 - 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!

 

Rylee + Cru - The Seaside Collection

Rylee + Cru - The Seaside Collection

We are SO excited to welcome the awesome Rylee + Cru to the Junior Edition fold! Founded by illustrator Kelli Murray and inspired by her own little ones, Rylee + Cru merges art and imagination, offering unique and artistic clothing for the modern child.

Given that we're Brighton based we are particularly excited about their latest collection. Inspired by the sand and sea, this is THE most stunning range and has us all excited about when the sunshine finally hits these shores.

Choosing our top picks was an almost impossible task but the baby rompers and jumpsuits are probable faves  - from beachballs and seagulls to palm trees and seashells, there is an huge range of colours and prints to choose from.

The collection consists of quality basics that are each hand garment dyed, giving them a soft vintage feel right out of the box. The shapes are comfortable and the fabrics are soft, making dressing and movement easy.

For the older girls we were particularly taken with this stunning two piece - the seashell button-front skirt and off the shoulder top in cocoa,  available in ages 2/3 right up to 6/7.

Maybe its a children of the 70's thing but we LOVE short shorts on a boy and the flock taylor shorts in stormy blue immediately caught our eye. Whilst there's LOTS of beautiful tees that would make the perfect partner, we especially love the beach ball tank in spice, both available up to age 7.

There's so much more to see, click here, sit back and ENJOY or visit our lovely store in the heart of Brighton's North Laine district.

Bobo's Never-ending Summer

Bobo's Never-ending Summer

As a child, Jane Goodall was given a cuddly chimpanzee toy named Jubilee and her passion and love for animals was ignited.

In later life Jane's adventure led her to the Gombe Stream National Park in Africa where she spent her life watching and learning about chimpanzees, she is now credited with being one of world's foremost experts on the species.

Never-ending Summer, the SS18 collection from Bobo Choses tells the story of young Jane, focussing on the questions she sought answers to as a child, curious about the world around her.

To pick our favourites from this sublime range has been an almost impossible task, quite frankly we are as in love with this exciting new collection as we are in awe of Jane's inspiring work.

The baby range boasts some brilliant brights as well as more muted khakis and greens and the most beautiful range of knitted culottes which look fabulous at any age.

 

For the older girls there are some simply stunning sundresses and skirts which we loved teamed here with the Novesta Forest sneaker.

 

There are some really fun shorts and tee combos for the boys and lots and lots of unisex pieces, we love the jumpsuits that look just as fab on boys as girls.

 

Never-ending Summer is our biggest collection yet with some 150 pieces in the range and we've also extended our range up to 9 years! From wardrobe essentials and swimwear to hats and bags, we've got it covered!

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.

Perfect Party Dresses

We're firm believers that you don't necessarily need a party to roll out your best dress.  Our own offspring often supermarket shops looking ready for a tea party for the Queen, and why not?  Clothes can and should be fun, whatever the occasion!

The current favourite at home is Huxbaby's cherry cat ballet dress, it's a super cute design available in both black and shell and also comes in a bodysuit version for the tiniest of girls.

The Huxbaby cherry cat tulle skirt is also proving to be really popular and is surprisingly versatile, it looks as awesome dressed down with trainers, a tee and sweat top as it does with sparkly shoes and a pretty top.

For a truly festive feel MarMar Copenhagen have some luscious greens and sparkly golds that come together to make the perfect Christmas Day outfit.  Here we have an elegant version of the ballet skirt in a stunning leaf green, the lightweight mid length tulle skirt has an elasticated metallic gold waistband and is fully lined.  We've teamed it with this beautiful and super soft gold lurex cardigan with mother of pearl buttons and a single front pocket.

For a (much!) less conservative look take a walk on the wild side with Bang Bang Copenhagen, a high-fashion look that is functional as well as huge amounts of fun.  Some of our favourite picks this year are the animal inspired dresses that include cats, penguins, rabbits and swans.  These outfits can be tamed with some plain basics and accessories or made even more fierce with some of Bang Bang's super fun tights and socks. Personally we'd go all the way! 

Hugo Loves Tiki is another of our bold brands whose aesthetic includes striking graphics, European languages and cartoon-like illustrations.  This season has seen some gorgeous bow and collared dresses in some really fun prints such as soda cups, pink and red bunnies and cupcakes.  For the festive period though we think this striped print is perfect as it is so reminiscent of candy canes!
