Munster Kids 2017

Munster Kids
Munster Kids just released their new collection. ROAD TRIP!
They are based in Australia which means that for us this is the A/W 2017 collection but for Down Under it is S/S.

I am super inspired by the look book. The surfboards, vans and light that screams for long summer evenings {or in our case – Indian Summer evenings} and lots of fun, conversations and play. Falling to bed with a smile in our and the kids’ faces…

Munster Kids is a fashion-forward brand of kids apparel driven by music, art and street culture.

The collections are always full of graphic tees, comfy pants and cool styles. Perfect for kids that make nature their playground!

Castellabate with kids

Castellabate with kids
Before we are boarding our plane tonight for our second trip of this summer, I really wanted to share some moments from our family vacation in Italy.

This time we went South. To Castellabate. Castellabate is a town in the province of Salerno in the Campania region of south-western Italy.

It was perfect even so {or maybe just because} we ended up here by accident. Our holiday plans were made really late this year and one day we were just sitting around the kitchen table and decided for Italy. And then I booked flights to Napoli. We did Tuscany a couple of times and wanted to discover the South.

It took us some more weeks to finally find time to book a place. And this is how we found Castellabate. Looking at the map and what was around Napoli and {very important} a spot we could do without a car. We just did not feel like driving around.

We found a cute little apartment in the village of Castellabate. Upon a mountain which means: amazing view! The town is all about alleys full of corners, arcades, labyrinth stairways that lead through the intact ancient town center. Castellabate was declared UNESCO world cultural heritage.

From here we could take a little bus to either:

Santa Maria di Castellabate – sandy beaches and a fun Italian pedestrian zone. A large park surrounds Villa Matarazzo, which is the venue for various kinds of cultural events and a big playground.

or

The fishing village of San Marco di Castellabate. San Marco still has an active fishing fleet and traditional wooden ships are built here.

Il Gufo A/W 2017

Il Gufo
Today I am leaving my comfort zone of small and independent brands and we are looking at the new collection from Il Gufo.
An Italian brand and world leader in luxury kids fashion.

But when I saw the loo book for this Autumn/ Winter campaign I thought I landed in a different world. A little bit like Wonderland with some fairies and other charming creatures.

Il Gufo is very dedicated to keep up what they are known for: high quality materials, attention to detail and exclusive manufacturing. The kids collections are handmade in Asolo in Italy.

This winter our children can wear a little magic. Prints with animals that disappear as if by magic on sweatshirts and T-shirts, crystal balls that reflect fantastic worlds, and splashes of color that become sparkling raindrops on the most elegant fabrics dedicated to the most important occasions.
Velvet shoes, precious ballerinas with jewel appliqués and colored laces and camouflage patterns for boys.
Magnificent!

Beautiful women’s wear brand Ovate also has a fantastic little selection for kids. Ovate Mini.

Simple linen dresses in cool colors {you know me, I love the dark tones} and shapes.
