Children’s wear that is cool and jolly

wander wonder

We are starting the week with fashion again. Wearable, chic, and cool clothing that is presented through a very happy and jolly lookbook.

Wander n Wonder is a beautiful brand founded by Hilda Yim and based in Hong Kong. Established in 2017, and inspired by a love of travel as a family. Hilda realised that curious minds love adventure and learning about other cultures through food, music, art and street life.

‘Whether it’s Africa, Japan or Mexico, we pay homage to their traditions and embrace their language and lifestyles. By interpreting it through a child-like perspective. Wander always, wonder often.’

Therefore, each collection is made for adventurous and curious children, inspired by the lifestyle and tradition of one country. Have a look through the new collection and I am sure these colourful garments and graphic prints will appeal to you:

‘On our journey to discovering the next adventure, we are continually inspired to design quirky and comfortable pieces that will be loved by kids.’

Hilda is not concerned about trends, as this fuels consumerism and fast fashion. That is why she creates whatever pulls on her heart strings. And by manufacturing in small batches, sustainability is always on her mind.
And the most obvious way in achieving this goal is by creating collections to cater for both hemispheres. Collections that are indented to order, and once they’re gone – they’re gone.

The brand also works with Plan International and donates 2% of their profits to programs that support children within the local community.

But now I want to share my favourites, because you often ask what my stand out pieces are. For this collection I do love the pink overalls (great for boys too!) because they are super cute and so versatile.
And then, this cats prints dress* with the peter pan collar. Loving the very traditional collar with the comic inspired print. Very cool! And the shape is super comfortable as well.

Playful yet elegant children’s clothing from France

French children’s clothing

Oh, it has been a while that I shared a look book. But yesterday I saw the new collection from French brand Emile et Ida and the images are so dreamy. And full of Spring vibes.

And since we are already headings towards the end of February, we are definitely ready for something more light.

The brand is so strong combining classic styles in soft fabrics and timeless prints, with beautiful, slightly retro looks and a modern twist. Everything is perfectly whimsical, with a French touch!

French children’s clothing at it’s best:

The Vichy pieces are so retro but totally scream French summer. The blouse* is made from super soft cotton poplin and I would really wear it in my size too…

Founder and designer Delphine launched the brand in 2010 and set on a mission to create playful but elegant children’s clothing. The collections are made for kids aged 0 to 14 years, and Emile et Ida now offers a lovely line of clothes for women* as well.

And I particularly love their attention to detail. The prints and fabrics are delightful. For this summer you can find lovely floral, cute animal designs, or cool fruits.

Emile et Ida inspires with their creativity and designs that perfectly reflect the free-spirited, fun-loving wonder of childhood.

My favourite pieces are this skirt* for girls and this jumper* for boys.

Vintage inspired leather shoes for the little ones

vintage leather shoes kids

Hello from the first day of half term. After a weekend full of rain and wind I am so ready to get out and about and full my lungs with fresh air. I always feel rather uninspired when spending to much time inside. Do you have the same?

On the plus side our kitchen was filled with the smell of baked goods yesterday. I made a cake and the kids produced some cookies. And I produced a raw cake coming up with a recipe myself after I checked what we had in stock. Tasty!

And all together we are starting into a fun week of holidays with the leftovers and some sun that did make an appearance this morning.

Over the weekend I also took some time browsing around my favourite sites for inspiration and finds. And stumbled upon these gorgeous vintage leather shoes for children. A very lovely Etsy shop* selling the cutest shoes in heirloom designs. From Mary Jane’s, to Oxford’s, or t bar styles. In timeless tan, soft pink, or happy mustard. These shoes will change every outfit.

Come and see more of these lovely vintage leather shoes:

Aren’t they delightful?

My favourite are the Mary Jane’s with the leaf detailing* (absolutely love the details!!) and the one’s in red and cream*.

All shoes are made from very soft leather and have that WOW effect that will put a smile on your little one’s face every time they put them on. And your’s probably too…

Happy Monday everyone!

 

More shoes? How about some functional yet very cool school shoes or Coolis?

A Letter from Summer

A Letter from Summer

A Letter from Summer – probably the best name for a collection I have heard in a long time. And even so we have storm Ciara blazzing through the streets, there are little signs of Spring already.

The days are getting longer, daffodils are blooming, and we could enjoy some park time after school without their little hands freeze on the scooter handles.

So yes, we are curious to see what summer wrote us. Transmitted through a collection that is fun, light, airy, and playful. Cooiii is a young Chinese kid’s wear brand with adorable and imaginative designs. Founded by two good friends in Shanghai in 2017, and inspired by the motto: “Kids run the world”. To no surprise, you can find it reflected in their designs.

Discover a colourful children’s line that uses innovative new methods, focus on the finer details, and embraces the beauty of an idyllic childhood. Discover A Letter from Summer:

A Letter from Summer

The morning light of tropical islands and the wet coconut forest in the rain are our initial fantasy of adventure. And the stripe element, the silhouette of the sea soul shirt, accompany us to explore another hidden world. Ginger hunting shorts, loose and comfortable strap skirts give us ample space to move. We just want to run on the beach, release emotions, ponder light and shadow, and experience the ease of the sea breeze on the cheeks. Opening the summer letter from the sea…

And there are a lot of really wearable and adorable pieces. All with a very reasonable price tag by the way. Choosing a favourite is very difficult but for girls I love this dress*. I just love the colour combination as well as the simplicity.

For boys I am choosing these shorts*. First of all, I love the yellow colour because boys love to wear something else than navy and brown too. Further – it has all these cool as well as practical details.
