Pops of colours for nununu this season

nununu ss 2019

Deep Purple is the colour of the year. At least for Israel’s kids fashion guru nununu. Adding a special colour to their collections for each season we are loving this beautiful shade of purple.

However, the alternative brand that is most famous for its blacks and greys decided to add a lot more pops of colours into their Spring/ Summer collection. And it is good!

Bright reds and pinks, green and blue. Mixed together! And, just quickly back to the deep purple – I think it is a wonderful gender neutral colour. Check this skull t shirt* for example and you know what I mean.

And to top it all off, they changed their lookbook style too. And it is a refreshing and welcome change…
Personally I think this highlights the clothes even more and gives it more movement and life. And lets the colours pop.

Effortlessly stylish clothes that are refreshing among all the vibrant hues and prints. This is kids fashion from Israel and since our stay in this fantastic country this winter I am even a little bit more in love. My travel report is coming very soon (I know some of you are waiting for it!).

Good selection in the UK via AlexandAlexa*. (You can find some pieces from their amazing collab with Tutu du Monde here as well)

By the way, my eldest has this pyjama set* and it is so comfy! She adores it!

We wear pastels, rainbows and cool prints this Spring!

Soft Gallery

Just before half term we received a box full of lovely things from one of our favourite brands – Soft Gallery. Fresh from Denmark and all styles selected by the kids themselves. Luckily the weather forecast was good and I thought the best way to start wearing lighter clothes and do a little pre-start of the Spring season, would be a little picnic.

In our own garden! The theme for half term was garden anyway because we decided to give it some attention including cleaning, cutting back some plants and adding some colour.

And what we got was even better – sunshine, 18C (sometimes even a bit more) during peak hours and happy everyone. I totally agree that the weather was absolutely crazy for February but we enjoyed it nevertheless. And really needed that boost too!

So, after the first days of getting the garden ready I treated the kids with a lovely lunch. That ended up with a little spontaneous dance party. Sunlight has the best side effects…

Soft Gallery
As you can see, all girls opted for some rainbows in one way or the other. Romy and Leonor, to my surprise, went for jumpsuits (no dresses!) and Antoine always loves a good t shirt.

And it all fitted perfectly and I can see that these pieces will be out many times…

Personally, I love the little 80’s vibe in this years collection. There are even some serious pastel/ metallic colours track suits from windbreaker material. Do you remember those? (little secret, if you are on the small side, a size 14 fits like an adult size S!)

Having a garden for the first time is such a winner. It was a total ‘must’ during our house search and I am glad we sticked to it. And even better that we could already use it so early on.

Happy Spring everyone, with lots of rainbows, picnics and laughter!

 

In collaboration with Soft Gallery. All outfits selected by my children themselves. A brand we all cherish and love working with.

Thoughtfully and responsible-produced children’s fashion

Thoughtfully and responsible-produced children's fashion longlivethequeen

Today I am sharing a brand that is based in Amsterdam, The Netherlands. A place where we lived before and two of my children were born. It feels such a long time ago but I would have loved to have this brand around back then.

Just short: I see more and more really lovely brands from The Netherlands. With less streetwear style, big logos and screaming colours. And I like it.

And next to the styles and colours I absolutely love the philosophy behind Longlivethequeen:

‘In a world where the ecological challenges we are facing seem almost insurmountable, we strive to create children’s clothes that leave a better mark on our planet.’

The Dutch brand crafts its collections using recycled materials, organic cotton and the softest threads. Reducing their ecological footprint and raising awareness of environmental causes among children.

Hetty van Driest creates cool collections full of easy to wear pieces in the most beautiful colours, made of upcycled fabrics, organic jerseys and soft knits.

It is really difficult to select favourites but that dress* is fantastic and that sweater* has a cool print and such a relaxed fit. I would wear it too if they would do my size.

I love that brands like this make it easy for us to be a mindful consumer but also be stylish. And child appropriate. Longlivethequeen’s shapes, styles and fabrics really talk to children and their need to feel free.

Another plus – sizes go up to 14 years. Yay! Because teens love this for sure…

The Gingham Edit

The Gingham Edit

Did you know that gingham started out as a striped fabric in South East Asia? Over 500 years ago?

Once the production moved to Manchester, UK in the 18th century, it started to be woven into checked or plaid patterns and often in blue and white. And the fabric balance between coloured, and neutral yarns was seen as being perfect for striped shirts.

Once arrived in the Western world, the name stayed, but the stripes were gone.
So, the truth is that gingham does not mean check or checked as we may think, it actually means striped.

But enough with the story telling and hop for some gingham style for kids, because there is lots this season:

1. Thelma & Louise bikini*.

2. Such a lovely dress*. Love the yellow. And you need to check the back!

3. Super soft and light waffle cotton blouse*.

4. Jumpsuits* are big this season and not only for babies.

5. Gingham blouse* with frills.

6. Frilly shorts*.

7. Cute headband*.

8. Baby romper*.

9. I love kurtas* for boys. And this summer it has to be a gingham one.

10. Shorts* that I would classify as unisex.

11. Red gingham* – cute waistband.

 

Psssst… have a look at my happy kids wear edit too!

22 fun things for a sunny March!

22 fun things for a sunny March!
Yes, Yes! Today is the 1st of March. Already! I really hope that you are located somewhere where you could enjoy some Spring-like days already as well. Here in London it was amazing and our batteries got such a good recharge.

We put our little garden together and even had lunch outside on some days. It is crazy right?

But I also kept track on everything that caught my eye over the last weeks and voila, a new Friday list is born. 22 things I have. Lots of interior (mainly from researches for my Interior Tuesday articles), some Etsy finds and, of course, a few things for mums too.

Enjoy:

I get that we’re in a time where minimal-style kids clothing is having a real moment. You know the type I’m talking about – linen, rompers, muted colours, beige (So. Much. Beige!), kind of Amish – but I feel really conflicted about the whole thing. On the one hand, the colours and styles are undoubtedly gorgeous, but on the other hand, these colours and styles don’t do much to entice little people to get dressed and have fun. I strongly believe happy clothes – colour, easy-wear-silhouettes and unrestricted shapes – are better for children both mentally and physically.

Refreshing talk about kids clothes!
