The best winter jackets for the little ones!

best winter jacket kids
This morning it was 5C when we had to go out for the school run! F I V E!

Cold is an underestimated definition, because the first days of dropping temperatures are the worst. Until my body gets used to it I just feel a general freeze.

Therefore, I made a big cup of tea on my return and started to select the best (in my opinion) winter jackets for children. Because we all know the saying: There is no bad weather, only wrong clothing.

So I will help you to kit your children for the cold months again – practical, stylish, and warm. I made a selection for babies, kids, as well as teens. The best winter jackets for girls, boys, including lots of unisex choices. Because investing in a good winter jacket is essential and if you can pass it on to siblings, a unisex model is often the best choice.

The best winter jackets for the little ones:

 

best winter jacket baby

Winter jackets for baby:

1. This waterproof jacket* in a beautiful camel colour is perfect for cold and rainy days.

2. This light down jacket* is a true must have. It can be folded into a small bag and is therefore easy to pack away. Shown in Raspberry red but also available in lovely blue tones. It comes with a hood and is waterproof.

3. Romantic Faux Fur Coat* with floral embroidery, patch pockets, and this incredibly soft material.

4. Cool down jacket* with a beautiful Leo lining.

5. Shooting star* down jacket that is warm and soft with its fur interior. Elasticated at the bottom and water repellent. (We have one of those jackets, from an earlier collection, at home and I can tell you, my kids love the cosy lining. It really makes a difference!)

 

 

 

best winter jacket kids

Winter jackets for kids:

1. Faux fur leopard print* jacket with a classic collar and floral printed lining. You can never go wrong with this one!

2. L O V E!!! Checked Sherpa Coat* with Peter pan collar. So so cool!

3. Red is a great colour and I find colourful winter jackets super. Helps you a bit during the grey days and (!!!) really helps to spot your child on the school yard or playground. This lined down jacket* comes with a removable hood, lots of pockets and a cosy fleece lining.

4. Mega long down jacket* in green! High collar, zipper pockets, contrasting ribbing, and waterproof.

5. The colour of this reversible down jacket* is the best. It is plain navy (and you know I love navy too!) on the other side but this lilac/blue/shine – something colour is different. And I like it! It is pulled in at the bottom for more volume.

 

 

best winter jacket teens

Winter jackets for teens:

1. Lined hooded parka* in navy blue with slash pockets.

2. For the fashionista teen: The Penelope Coat* !

3. Another big favourite: This Houndstooth Coat*. It goes with everything and will still be cool in 20 years.

4. A parka is always a good idea! And this faux fur lined hooded Parka* in timeless Khaki is one of them.

5. And this Faux Fur Lined Parka* in lovely Midnight blue, cool embroideries on back, and tightened cuffs will definitely keep your teen very warm this winter.

This selection will surely keep you toasty!

 

For more cold weather styles – how about these lovely knitted garments?

 

PS: Watch out, next week I will share some cool Autumn styles for mums. Yeah!

The most endearing baby bonnets!

hand made baby bonnets embroidered

Good Morning and hello new week. I have some very cute handmade baby bonnets to share with you here today. And they are especially handy because Autumn is here. It is not just an ‘around the corner’ anymore, it is falling leaves, rain, wind, and very chilly mornings.

I am quite excited actually because last year we were in the middle of moving from Sweden to London and just did not enjoy much of this colourful season. On that note, can you imagine, it is nearly 12 months already since we landed in our new location?

Furthermore, Amber embroiders her bonnets* with beautiful designs in some lovely earthy colours. Very autumn, and very beautiful!

Have a look at the images and see the amazing quality and craftsmanship of these bonnets. These handmade pieces are special and so stunning:

A little autumn rainbow* and this leafy season will be even more fun.

This floral version* is stunning too. Combined with the raw linen and other natural fabrics, these adorable embroideries really pop out. One could wish they would be cool to wear once you are over 36 months…

Love baby stuff – how about linen baby clothes?

The kids brands collabs of the moment!

rylee cru and mon petit shoes

When two cool kids brands collaborate it usually results into something fabulous. Putting creative minds together can make for a powerful product.

Some will sound like a match made in heaven, other might take you by surprise. Similar styles evolve into something wonderful, and very opposite brand identities are innovative and surprising.

Whatever it is, these matches are more and more important in the fashion world. Reach new customers, staying relevant, and especially being able to offer products out of your ‘normal collections’ in a fast paced world.

Personally, I love them too. Because they often bring some fresh air, a new point of view and something fun!

Therefore, I am sharing the coolest kids brands collaborations in the shops right now:

AIGLE x MATHILDE CABANAS

AIGLE x MATHILDE CABANAS

This collab makes happy, even in the rain! The comfortable rain boots from Aigle with a little sweetness of everyday life. Mathilde Cabanas revisited the famous Lolly Pop Boot* for the pleasure of the little ones. (and of course their mums too!)

 

Harry Potter x Boden

HARRY POTTER X BODEN

My children are obsessed with Harry Potter and this collab definitely did not go unnoticed. The collection* puts Mini Boden’s playful, heritage spin on Harry Potter’s characters and locations. You will find 3D embroidery, colour-change sequins, fluffy owl romper, an embellished bomber jacket, and much more.

 

reebok-tao

REEBOK X THE ANIMALS OBSERVATORY

The Animals Observatory have collaborated* with global sportswear brand Reebok in order to bring their most iconic shapes to life. A unique and fashionable approach to children’s sneakers. These iconic Reebok styles pay homage to the vintage look and bold designs that both brands are known for.

 

POUDRE ORGANIC x CHARLOTTE PRIOU

POUDRE ORGANIC x CHARLOTTE PRIOU

The softest pieces, as we know them, in subtle colours from Poudre Organic. And this season with a sweet peacock print designed by Charlotte Priou.

 

veja x bonton

VEJA X BONTON

Two hot French brands joined forces. The collaboration* mixes the minimalist aesthetics of Veja and Bonton’s timeless touch. Together they designed a line of 4 sneakers in a retro colour scheme. Available in two designs, two exclusive colours, and with laces in organic cotton or velcro.

 

Bonjour George x Jojo Factory

BONJOUR GEORGE x JOJO FACTORY

Backpacks, lunch bags and other important accessories for school and/or nursery just got a cool look. The collab* between bag designer Jojo and pattern master George is divine.

 

rylee cru and mon petit shoes

RYLEE AND CRU X MON PETIT SHOES

A lovely collection of hard and soft-soled shoes to complement your child’s autumn wardrobe! With 2 prints designed by the incredible rylee + cru for mon petit shoes. All shoes in the collection are handmade in the USA!

Heart to Wear

Heart Wear

One of the things that I keep remembering from my trade show visits this summer is listening to a shop owner saying: ‘I will get heart prints in the shop, because all we need is love at the moment’.

Her shop is based in the US and she was mostly referring to the political situation.
Well, here in the UK we can report the same political mess right now and when we look around. Things are not that easy when it comes to the economy, environment, and, yes, politics.

Wearing hearts may not resolve much (but please do keep on with the little things we can all do to help!) but they surely lift our mood. And they show love.

So, love it is, lots of love:

 

1. Walking on love should be a good way to start your first steps…

2. A heart here, and a heart there. Or just all of them on one wall. Your decision with these cute wall decals*.

3. Adorable linen dress* with a heart shaped back.

4. Quilted heart pillow and blanket. Love the simplicity.

5. That is a lot of love on one jumper.

6. One you grew out of your baby moccs, you can exchange them for these cool sneakers*.

7. An icon for a t-shirt. Minimalist share of love with the play shirt*. (various colours available)

8. For mums – this handy and cute pochette.

9. Happy hearts grey sweater*.

10. Forever love in your countertop with this tray*. A classic.

11. Perfect pair of pyjamas*. Dream in love…

12. Absolute darling mobile.

13. Loving hearts brooch* to jazz up any outfit.

14. Building set of ten heart shaped blocks.

15. Beautiful t-shirt* with a heart going around.

 

Heart to wear!

Happy weekend…. and take a look at our rainbow round up before you leave!
