Black Crane Mini

Black Crane Mini
Ubercool women brand Black Crane launched a kids line.

Black Crane Mini means you can twin with your kiddo in style.

The brand by Alexander Yamaguchi and Momoko Suzuki is very inspired by their Japanese roots as well as ancient Japanese culture and civilization. Supple lines and comfort, minimal and edgy.

Alexander moved to LA from Tokyo when he was 18. He wanted to realize his career in surfing yet became a graphic designer. He launched his men’s line, Alexander Yamaguchi in 2000.

Momoko moved to LA, also from Tokyo, when she was 14. She has an education in environmental art as well as architecture and interior design.

Owa Yurika


One of the biggest questions these days is: Should one start a new brand, blog or xxx {insert what comes in your mind first} with a market that is so over saturated. A market that produces lots of similar items, messages and copies.

If {there is always an IF} you have something new. Something fresh. Something surprising.

Please do not bring us more printed leggings and monochrome prints. Bring us something fun, functional and well made.

And this is exactly what mother-daughter duo Yuki and Yuriko Oshima did. They created OWA YURIKA – a fresh perspective on children’s wear.

Sleek lines, a terrific colour palette and cool cuts! {those jackets!}

And the Louis Louise A/W 2016 collection is the perfect mix between modern and romantic. Poetic really yet fresh and timeless!
The brand is a true staple here on Paul & Paula and has been featured many times. And I know you really love it as well. Between the ruffles, special fabrics, subtle colours and all the exquisite details there is always the French touch.

The cool, the chic and the nonchalance.
