"Autumn Winter 2014 by Caramel"

Have you seen this stunning new Autumn/Winter collection by Caramel?  Caramel is an old favourite British brand that always creates clothes that are timeless and beautiful.  This is probably my favourite collection yet.  Caramel is always about delivering understated style without compromising on comfort and this collection does just that.  That skirt (pictured bottom right) – how lovely is the cut?  And that dress with the red trim?  I’m loving it all.  I’ve picked out the girls collection to share here but there is also some gorgeous stuff for boys and babies. 

"beau loves autumn winter 2013"I’m in love with Beau LOves new Autumn Winter 2013 collection.  There’s drama and adventure in every piece.  With their signature mask motif and dark pieces mixed with yellows and golds, this collection is striking and so much fun for any kid to wear.  Imagine everyday clothes that can make you feel like a superhero or an adventurer; what more can a child want? "Beau loves autumn winter 2013"In addition to the clothes, there is a new black and white bed linen range with a tiny cat print and one with the mask print.  Both are very, very cool and the best bit about the entire collection… nearly all of it is unisex so everybody gets to enjoy the fun!  The British made collection isn’t yet available on Beau LOves own site but will be very, very soon.

Happy Friday friends and there’s a fab French giveaway coming on Monday!

Playful designs…

"colourful nursery art"

I have always wanted to visit the London Design Festival but each year passes and I miss it for one reason or another.  I’ve now added it to my huge ‘to-do’ list.  Unfortunately nothing ever seems to get crossed off this list and instead it just grows bigger and bigger.  But while I’m waiting for the 2013 festival I went and had a browse of their site and found Supafrank.  Nothing excites me more than discovering a new design studio that creates unusual things and that’s exactly what Supafrank is all about.

"colourful stools for kids rooms"

Supafrank work with various brands to create packaging, stationery and more.  But they’ve also created their own line called Creature Collective which I’m loving.  The furniture is still in prototype phase but the cute artworks are available now.  I love the bright colours and the element of fun they’ve injected in to all their designs.  There’s a bit of quirk mixed with lots of playful style to create products that would be fun for any age.  The artworks are more for kids and would add some humour and brightness to any room.  In addition to this project, Supafrank have also worked on some really fabulous collaboration projects like the Mickey Mouse and Winnie the Pooh ones which you can also see on their site.

Cool chunky knits…

"knitwear for children"

Come the winter months, I love throwing on a chunky knit with a pair of skinny jeans and knee high boots.  It’s an effortless everyday look that works every time.  I wanted to create a mini version of this look for my daughter but finding nice chunky knits for kids proved to be impossible until I stumbled across Cotton and Milk.  A relatively new line of {mainly} knitwear for kids, there is an understated style about these pieces mixed with a touch of vintage which I’m loving.  Created by British designer Justine Glanfield who is based in Brussels, Cotton and Milk make stylish knits for both boys and girls.  Apart from the wonderful clothes, I love the creative way in which they’re presented too.  You can see and buy their current collection over at Line + Liv {a great boutique for kids clothes} or visit Cotton and Milk to see previous collections too.

Wonderful winter woolies…

September 18, 2012

"alpaca wool kids clothes"

There’s definitely a nip in the air which means it’s time to start getting your winter woolies out and maybe even buying a few more.  While summer is my favourite season, I do look forward to winter fashions the most, not just for me but for the little one too.  There’s one British brand that I’ve wanted to share with you for a long while and with the weather turning, I couldn’t wait any longer.  They’re called Waddler and they create wonderful woolies for babies and kids with a keen eye on design and lots of playful touches that make the clothes immensely wearable and immensely cute. 

"baby alpaca wool clothes for babies"

All made of 100% baby alpaca wool in Bolivia,  Waddler’s creations are quirky, playful and stylish without any of the over-cuteness that you can find in baby clothes.  There isn’t a piece in the collection that I don’t like.  Their colours too are lovely with lots of soft grey’s, sandy browns and off-white’s complimented by bolder colours like teal and bright red.  Most of their clothes are unisex making them great for passing on from one sibling to another.  I could go on and on about wonderful Waddler but I’ll leave you to discover the rest over at their site.

"quirky handmade fabric dolls"

I was browsing etsy as I often do when a thumbnail of one of these dolls caught my eye.  I clicked to have a better look and I was confronted by these whimsical hand made dolls.  I love that they’re so quirky and unusual, I love their long dangly legs and I’m also feeling the love for their ‘stand out from the crowd’ outfits.  These contemporary dolls are hand made here in the UK by a lady called Kiran Patel who says ‘their clothing style is borrowed from modern trends… and translated with intricate style detailing making each piece interesting and original in their own way.’  These dolls are large, measuring around 40cm’s and would make funky soft toys or would look cool as decorative dolls too.  To find out more, head to Kooky Handmade on etsy.

"hand painted wooden alphabet blocks"

I was searching for wooden alphabet blocks on etsy when one particular set caught my eye.  I clicked and was taken to a shop filled with beautiful illustrations not just on blocks but on wall prints and little books too.  I loved what I saw so ditched my previous post idea and decided to make today all about the British illustrator Julia Staite.  I do love etsy for the unique talent it’s filled with and Julia’s work is the perfect example.  Her illustrations are so pretty!  There’s lots of colour, some whimsical characters, quirky drawings and above all it’s fun.  The blocks are great for play but they’d also make lovely decorations for a nursery and Julia also offers personalised wooden alphabet blocks so you can have your babies name spelled out.  I’m very keen on the circus themed prints too which would work equally well in a toddler, kiddy or nursery space.  You can find all this and more over at Julia Staite’s shop.
