Wynken: Everybody Loves The Sunshine
I know we are lucky enough to have customers from all over the world so I don't want to harp on about it too much but my god it has been a horrendous winter here in the UK. Don't get me wrong, I'm not in the anti-winter brigade, I love a woolly jumper and a large glass of red by a roaring fire! I don't even mind the cold if the truth be told and I LOVE a bit of snow (rare as it is in this country) but it has been relentless rain and high winds for as long as I can remember. So. Over. It.
And so, in an attempt to pretend the outside isn't happening, I'm projecting all things summer related and taking a closer look at the gorgeous new collection by Wynken which is inspired by the classic Roy Ayers Song, Everybody Loves The Sunshine and perfectly encapsulates the laid back vibe of a sunny summer day.
For anyone not familiar with Wynken, they are a London based childrenswear brand creating unisex fashion for kids which we stock from three months all the way up to to eight years. Wynken was created by Elbe Lealman in 2014 shortly after becoming a mother herself, realising her dreams of creating a contemporary children's clothing line for modern kids. Wynken is one of those brands that is as popular with kids as it is the adults, with its strong design focus coupled with quality and wearability. The multitude of techniques used during manufacturing, from print to appliqué and embroidery means that every collection produced boasts rich and textured clothing that is kind to both the wearer and the environment. We're huge fans here!
The SS20 collection is a particularly special one - it's feel good, it's slow pace, it's slow play and it's oozing those good time summer vibes. There are SO MANY great pieces this season, but the dresses really are exquisite! The Gather Dress in Clay is my personal favourite. Relaxed and roomy with a frill sleeve, this pretty dress is made from clay colour linen cotton mix fabric and is printed with a distressed sunshine print in a darker clay tone. It has a crew neckline with button opening down the back bodice with the skirt gathered in to the waist seam. If this came in adult sizes I would 100% be wearing it! We have already sold out in age 8 but have 2, 4 and 6 years still available.
The Wynken caps and hats have always been super popular for us. We have the trademark wink caps in blue terry, bronze, deep coral and dull pink together with badge caps in golden, red/bronze and silver. We are also stocking the havana hat in four colour-ways and the glorious bucket hat (seen here with the sunshine stripe tee shirt and daily shorts) in both pink and sand. We have a hat for every occasion!
The cuban shirt also deserves a special mention......it's the most stunning relaxed fit shirt. It has a button front closure with a button and loop detail at collar giving an option to close up to the neck (it looks brill either way!). There are two lower front patch pockets and the cotton fabric has been printed with an all over sun print which has a distressed finish. Sold out in age 6 we still have ages 2,4 and 8 available at the moment.
