Minimal Christmas

As you know we adore Inkibabinki here on this blog, it is one of our fave Australian kids fashion and decor range for their minimal, design led approach.

They have done it again this festive season with their new limited edition Minimalist Christmas Tshirt.  We loved it so much that we thought we would get into the Christmassy spirit in November and have a bit of fun!

Where the wild things are

We thought we would take our fabulous AW15 Gardner and the Gang  collection out for some fun in the wild! There was some wild rumpus antics…and a lot of fun to be had!

We adore this label for their ethically produced, organic kids clothing. The prints are just brilliant and we cannot wait for next season’s collection.

Misha & Puff

Well after a glorious Summer like week of weather last week, this week we have had gale force winds, rain and a big drop in temperatures. It feels like Winter again and I am wanting to keep all warm and cosy. I am blaming myself of course as the day I put away all our winter heaters, winter came back with a vengeance! But I digress as always, as all we want to hear about are these super gorgeous timeless knits by the fabulous Misha and Puff.  They are oh so perfect for this colder change in temps.

Designed by Anna Wallack in the US, each knit is ethically hand made in Peru. Here the women are given opportunities to support their families through working from home or at a knitting centre that provides meals and childcare.

Mister. I

I have to say when I opened up the package from Mister.I, I gasped, quite literally, at how beautiful the 2 pieces of clothing were that I was looking at. The prints were utterly divine and the fabric super soft. They took my breath away. I had not seen kids clothing so stunning before.

As such I was in a bit of a fix, as I knew that my photos couldn’t do this beautiful clothing line the justice it deserved. I am still learning with my photography but these clothes needed a master! So I enlisted a photographer friend of mine to take over and weave her magic. I have to say my darling Sina from Petite Etoile certainly did that!

Bandit Kids SS15 – The Kingdom of Cool

I am super excited and truly honored to show you some sneak peaks of the SS15 collection from one of my favourite kids clothing brands, Bandit Kids.

Hitting the kids fashion scene with well deserved  fanfare earlier this year, they have gone from strength to strength. With 2 collections so far, showcasing some amazing artist collaborations with Emma Battaglia aka Pax and Hart and  in house typographer/friend Ruben de Haas for AW15 and SS15, they are utterly rocking the world of kids fashion.

This season I think is arguably their best yet, and that is saying something as their last two collections have been beyond amazing.

Designed in Australia and made ethically in Indonesia, I can attest to the fantastic quality of each piece. They wash and wear oh so well. My eldest son adores his Bandit Kids clothing ( they make from ages 3+) and he chooses to wear them above all others.

So what is their SS15 “Kingdom of Cool” collection all about?

Do you remember those lazy summer days as a child where you didn’t really get up to much?  Maybe you had a swim in your friends pool, rode your bike to the shops to get an ice cream,  you climbed trees or you and your mate did the big hike to the beach in the sweltering heat?

Days were long, blisteringly hot and summer holidays stretched for hours, days and weeks. You longed for them never to end… Mix that summer vibe with cool pastel and retro neutral prints of palm trees, ice creams, parrots, flamingos and swimming pools and this is exactly where you find the “Kingdom of Cool” reigning supreme!
