Wynken is a unisex children's brand from London established in 2014 by designer Elbe Lealman, who was also head of design for established contemporary British brand Folk. Her idea was to create contemporary clothing for modern kids with strong design and quality at its core but also a sense of playfulness that would appeal to young minds. The Wynken design ethos is to create unisex collections with a sense of freedom and comfort of movement in volume shapes and soft fabrications. Elbe uses multiple techniques to create pattern be it in print, appliqué or embroidery to create rich textured clothing with an immediate connection to the wearer whilst also being kind to them and their environment.Their SS18 collection Greetings from Coney Island is a collection of summer garments inspired by photos and memories of Coney Island made whilst the designed lived in New York in 1999. The collection is also inspired by the iconic 1970s film The Warriors with gangs of imaginary clowns ruling the beaches of Coney Island, drinking soda, playing baseball and listening to music. Together with signage, holiday postcards and circus attractions the collection is a playful and colourful homage to a world that time forgot.
