Bobo Choses: For President

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

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.

Mini Rodini AW20: Für Elise

Mini Rodini AW20: Für Elise

Mini Rodini never fail to impress; quirky, colourful prints that work as hard as kids play! It's one of those brands that is fun to buy and even more exciting to launch as little is revealed by way of 'sneak peaks' beyond the name of the collection. We get such a buzz launching the product after weeks of speculation on social media and there are always a few absolute gems in there that get folks super excited, and this season was no exception!

Autumn/Winter 2020 is an absolute cracker of a collection, with 3 chapters released across the months of July, August and September. Für Elise is inspired by classical music and art and there are so many fabulous new prints from Mozart pandas and cat choirs to notes and violas. 

Wynken: Fiesta Forever

Wynken: Fiesta Forever

Wynken is the most beautiful fashion brand from London, creating childrenswear that we stock from 6 months all the way up to 12 years. Established in 2014, Elbe Lealman (formerly Head Designer at the fabulous 'Folk') created Wynken after becoming a mother, realising her dream of creating a contemporary and creative children's clothing collection with a strong design and quality focus. Clothing that parents love to buy and children love to wear!

Fiesta Forever is a gloriously rich collection, muted tones combine with colours that pop! There are textured fabrics, beautifully bold prints, soft velour and faux fur jerseys and chunky alpaca knits. Colours include mallow pink, umber, otomi blue and buff and buttermilk tones together with burgundy and fiesta green plaid. 

The Animals Observatory AW20 - A Love Story with Pop Iconography

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!

 

New Collection: Repose - People

New Collection: Repose - People

Next week the SS20 launches start in earnest, we are busy unpacking and sorting and uploading and listing, there's honestly not enough hours in the day! Its always a really exciting time though and in the depths of a wet and windy winter here in the UK it does mean we dare start daydreaming of the warm and sunny days ahead!

One of our brands is doing things a little bit differently this year. Amsterdam based Repose AMS will release four collections across the year, two main and two capsule and one has already dropped! The first main collection and Repose's ninth, People, launched in December and it really is the most beautiful collection centred around love and belonging.

Moving away from the usual seasonal drops has allowed Repose AMS to re-write the rules. Where one might usually expect to be browsing tank tops and tees in the depths of winter to wear in the months to come, this collection is perfectly suited to this very moment which is a rather lovely thing!

The first drop features some beautiful knitwear together with fleece pants and jackets which will keep your little ones cosy during the colder months as well as some lighter weight pieces as we transition in the Spring.

Their must-have signature striped skater dress comes in a peachy and golden block stripe this season and we adore the twirl dress, a long sleeved woven vichy checked dress with gathered waist and back fastening. A classic design that looks so beautiful on.

We also adore these hair clips, sold singularly and available in squared or rounded shapes in a choice of five colours: Caramel Brown Marble (Rounded), Soft Powder Pink (Rounded), Multi Marble (Squared), Sand Brown Marble (Squared) and Soft Blueish (Squared).

Repose clothing is the perfect marriage of design and comfort blended with a harmonious combination of colour, shape and texture and we applaud them for daring to try something new. We are really excited to see how their vision pans out across the coming year and hope you enjoy the idea as much as you will the collection, available to view in full here.

The Mini Rodini Space Odyssey - An Adventure Through Love, Space And Time

The Mini Rodini Space Odyssey - An Adventure Through Love, Space And Time

Mini Rodini's latest collection is absolutely out of this world awesome!

As a kid growing up in the 80s I remember being completely mesmerised by ET and all things outer space and those influences are keenly felt with this intergalactic collection. From cats with psychic powers and unidentified flying objects to a man in the moon delivering spiritual advice, this is a space odyssey with the most delicious of twists.

Of course we love it all, we always do but our absolute favourite favourite(s) are the space jackets, for the coolest of cool cats!

We also love, love, LOVE the rainbow hearts, which look especially cute in the dress and shirt but are also available in a skirt, blouse, short sleeve tee and cap.

Here in Brighton we have been enjoying an unusually pleasant run of sunshine which has been perfect for showing off our favourite shorts, tee and cap combination and the hooded dress has been absolutely perfect for bright but blowy blasts along the beach!

Let us not lose sight of the fact that we are of course UK based and it will only be a matter of time before the rain returns.....we couldn't be more ready for it with the gorgeous moon jacket for light summer showers (which packs away into the cutest of bum bags) and the edelweiss mouse mac and trousers for when mother nature unleashes her worst!
