Bonjour: The Little House On The Prairie
AW22 is our fourth season with Bonjour, and the collection, entitled "Little House On The Prairie", may well be our favourite so far. Brimming with pieces that showcase traditional techniques such as embroidery, smocking, quilting and block-printing in colours, prints and textures influenced by designer Anne Millet's love of travel.
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.
Mini Rodini: The Future Looks Bright, Pre AW22
The latest collection from Mini Rodini is a triumphant return to Mini Rodini at its best, with Cassandra Rhodin's signature prints and the return of some much loved prints from the Mini Rodini archives.
For this collection, Cassandra takes inspiration from New York City in the 70s and the intriguing psychic shops in Manhattan's Lower East Side. Will you be spending the summer in the breezy Hamptons or staying in the city in the hot buzzing streets of New York?
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.
Emile et Ida
Emile et Ida's collections are always brimming with cheerful designs that are easy to wear. Fabrics are soft and natural and folk, rock, romantic and retro influences can be often be felt. Their clothing is simple and comfortable, never boring and most importantly of all, perfectly suited to the busy and active life of a child.
The brand's creators, Delpine and Céline, are themselves the grandchildren of tailors and Emile et Ida started life in the family home, supported and encouraged by those closest to them and grown through hard work, perseverance and the desire to create something special.
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.
Wynken: Disco Safari
If there was an award for best collection name of the season I feel sure that Wynken would be claiming first place with the fabulous Disco Safari!
Inspired by the song lyrics of French electro band Yella, Wynken has created a collection of warm and earthy tones with burnt orange, red earth and lion stripe combined with purple haze and hot blush pink and red. Whilst this season's prints are inspired by 70’s disco club flyers, African wax prints and animals of the savannah. Dream theme!!
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.
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.
