Style find: Japanese fashion with nordic vibes

"japanese fashion for children"

When I visited Japan a few years ago I was like a kid in a candy store.  At every turn I saw unusual fashion, beautiful design, stunning  packaging; such a feast for the eyes.  Yesterday I came across Cokitica, a Japanese clothing brand for kids and I couldn’t wait to share.  It’s up there with the best of what Japan has to offer in the design stakes.  Think Nordic influences married with Japanese style, chunky knits with delicate details, and an adventurous spirit brought together to create kiddy clothes so subtly dramatic.  My favourite piece is the ‘brave wool’ mantle/poncho pictured above right but I’m also drawn to all their other poncho type tops, maybe because I’m a big fan of kids in ponchos.  Cokitica hasn’t yet made it to Europe but fingers crossed it heads westwards soon.  In the meantime Rakuten, the International market for Japanese goodies does sell a few of their pieces.
