"I’m California-born and New-York-educated, making a home in Hong Kong by way of London with a Swiss husband and our two global children. And I know that when I was a young child, I embraced life with irrational exuberance just as our children do now. I was spellbound by a sense of wonder, the world offering mystery and wonder at every turn. As I watch our children’s childhood unfold here in Asia, surrounded by the international influence of an American mother and a Swiss father, I see in their lives a mirror of the vision I have for Velveteen."

My head is buzzing a little trying to follow all the places and stops Laura mentioned above, part of her introduction on the Velveteen website, but  I can hear and understand every single word. I feel the same. And that is maybe why this is one of my latest crushes when it comes to kids fashion.
Back in January I wrote about them for the first time and do you remember Leonor in her Velveteen dress? Above you can see the current A/W collection - just lovely!


Velveteen is for the child who shines bright like a diamond.

Velveteen is for the child who is strong, smart, and kind.

Velveteen is for the global child in all of us.

Antoine & Leonor are trying out a new label from Sweden - Darling oh my.

Extremly soft cotton with fun prints and those little monkeys make the best combo....

For maximum comfort there are no itchy labels and the garments are washed before they land in stores. The prints are made out of a water based color from Japan and with the grey colour and fruity prints, it is a unisex collection you can wear all year round!

One day I received an e mail introducing me to a new online shop that was going to open very shortly. I saw that it was based in Sweden and asked where about... The reply was Malmo... so I thought, hej... e mails are nice but meeting offline is even better!

In the end it turned out that Genevieve {from Canada} lives in the house just right next to me {we can actually wave each other from window to balcony} and that a walk in park and some cake is a nice way to exchange :)

But I do not want to bore you with walks in the park and finally introduce you to The Youngsters! Please check out this new universe...

A very well curated online shop bringing you everything you need to make your child's room special and cosy. April Eleven, Anatology, by Nord, Fabelab, La Cerise sur le Gateau, Studio Snowpuppe and many more of the best brands!

I love the look book they shot to give the shop a picture and to inspire us all!

Congratulations and all the best dear neighbor...

Antoine loves his sneakers but really really likes a lovely pair of cool boots too.

And it is not easy to find something simple, easy to put on and that can go with many things from his wardrobe. So when I saw these beauties from Zecchino d'Oro over at Les Casse Pieds I was sold!

Personally I think the low boots style looks awesome on boys! What do you think?

The pictures speak for themselves I guess. Lovely quality, great colour and a very happy boy.

It is this pair and in case you did not know Les Casse Pieds before, a great shop with beautiful shoes, a passionate and very friendly owner who makes it very easy for you to order online because we all know how important good shoes are!


PS: When I look at these pictures it scares me how big my little boy is already... sigh...

Future of kids design

11.9.14

Paul & Paula blog: afilli

You remember my post about afilii and their great exhibition sofr upcoming Kind+Jugend?

Kind+Jugend opens its doors today and if you can you should really go!

Especially if you are curious what the future will bring us! Afilii created a booth called „future of kids design“  with ten forward-looking prototypes on furniture and toys for kids.

These are developped by international designers. These 10 prototypes from 4 different countries were chosen by a jury from 51 submissions.

During the show the jury {furniture manufacturer Breuyn, PAIDI and Pinolino} will choose one winner who they will follow through the process of the product launch. The winner will also be able to exhibit at Kind+Jugend in 2015.

The "future of kids design" stand is to find: Halle 10.1, C-080

You see there is lots on the table and to get you a little teaser I am showing you a few of the finalist here and now:



Bed & House – Innoarea (Spain)

Paul & Paula blog: innoarea bedhouse
Once the baby is too big for the crib you can use the sides as a roof and make a play house out of it! Very clever and useful for many years...




cradle me – Inka Dropmann (Germany)
Paul & Paula blog: inka cradle
Another clever idea on how to use a crib. Split in half you have two kids rocking chairs!



Labludo – Tobias Lindenbeck (Germany)

Paul & Paula blog: Tobias Lindeman
Hang you table on the wall and only put it together when needed. Easy and a good idea for small spaces.



MAVALA – Anna Licata (Italy)
Paul & Paula blog: Anna Licata
Table and stools are covered with magnetic paint so kids can draw on them and stick magnets. Pure design to fit into any family home.



Sleeping Book – IKSK Design (France)
Paul & Paula blog: iksk//bookbed
A giant book with rainbow coloured pages and when open you will find a place to sleep.


These are only 5 from the 10 finalist but out of these - who would you vote for?
