tinycottons started in 2012 and I remember getting their press release and shortly after that I saw the brand on a lot of blogs and then, again a little bit after that… in various shops…

I also saw the pieces hanging at fairs, in shops and and and… and somehow I never really got the hang out of it {good we all like different things}… until now…

The new A/W 2015 collection is really really cool and I love every single piece! Ha…

I can tell you that the cotton is super quality – thick and soft and something you just love to put your tiny ones in… now we are adding cool prints & graphics and I want it all!

This collection is perfect for the minimalist lover and available in various stores here and here.

Play is Work clothing is designed to function as a second skin. A child should be free to move, so Play Is Work had the genius idea: super soft leather combinations, to wear alone or over clothing. The child is free to crawl, fall and rise without end…

 

The core collection is made from leather tanned in Italy to traditional methods, and manufactured by artisans in London. The leather’s natural unevenness gives it a ‘no fuss’ quality, allowing hard wear for children and easy maintenance for grown-ups.

The marks left on the leather from climbing a tree or learning to ride a bicycle are all tales of childhood. Play is Work clothing holds these memories, just as we do.

For this summer Kaija Vogel added a cotton skirt designed to wrap twice around the body, like a traditional Greek skirt. Twirl forever girls…

Petit Pippin

Ez & Kaia Pudewa, a mother / daughter duo who have been happily creating and collaborating together for the past fifteen years started a little super cute label called the super cute name: Petit Pippin {means Little Seedling in French}

“… a reflection of our passion for beautifully crafted goods and our belief in embracing the everyday moments of childhood. The messy and the fun, the scraped knees and wind-tousled hair, whispered stories and boisterous laughter…every moment is precious and we love it all!”

One-of-kind handmade pillow toys and art prints, all designed in California and made in the US. Perfect gifts!

By the way, Ez is also the lady behind Creature Comforts {and other projects}…

Some weeks ago at Playtime Paris I finally met the people behind this very special label from Vienna. I featured them already back in 2013 {here} and with their current S/S collection {here} and I can tell you Hilda.Henri is getting better and better and the people are super lovely.

Above you can see the new A/W 2015 collection featuring lots of their famous milled loden fabric. All natural and light.

“On our winterly wanderings accompanied by camera we have crossed a wild river valley in Waldviertel, where Friedensreich Hundertwasser used to live and work. We have also found – in the spirit of Thoreau – a place that is and is not. It is reality as it is a place of the soul, of memory and of desire. There the children were accompanied by doves and horses. They went through the water. They were kings. They were queens.”

The doves that find themselves as tone-in-tone embroideries on special items for the girls seem to testify the adventure and that very spirit is what makes Hilda.Henri set a high value on sustainable and fair production. Partners are old-established family businesses with long-term experience in their skills – settled in between the mountains and nature. All collections are manufactured in Austria, following the rules of traditional handcraft.

My favourite are still the coats and capes. Such a fairy way of keeping warm, cosy and being stylish.

Who could do summer dresses and sun suits better than a Bali based label?

Husband and wife team Jimi and Zoe Paul are well known for the grown up line Mister Zimi and transferred the easy-going and relaxed silhouettes and vibrant prints into the mini line as well – called Mini Zimi.

Fun, bright clothes that make you smile!

Mix and match the styles and patterns for a super fun and happy look.
