Good looks are definitely hereditary. Gisele Bündchen’s five-year old niece is a model, and now “fashion designer” for Brandili Mundi a Brazilian children’s clothing line. She didn’t actually design the line, but had input in the kinds of elements she likes including butterflies, bows and ballerinas. You can see those kinds of details in the collection which is very cute. You can see the behind the scenes of the photo shoot for the ad campaign below. Looks like we’ve got a mogul in the making…
Every time I leave a pair of shoes laying around the Tiny Dancer swoops in, sticks her tiny feet in them and plops around the house in them. I’ve taken so many pictures of her when she does this and it never gets old to me. Every time I see her do it I run for my camera or phone.
Roger Vivier has created a new collection for little girls called Jeune Fille – for all the little girls who like to wear their mama’s shoes, they now can wear the same exact ones. The Roger Vivier Jeune Fille collection features the Gommette in an array of bright colors. The children’s version is the same as mama’s with the exception of an optional ankle strap. If the shoes weren’t cute enough, another reason to purchase is that the proceeds are getting donated to several charities benefiting children.
From the name, the look book and of course, the actual glasses, I love everything about *Very French Gangsters*. The line consists of top quality sunglasses and prescription glasses for children from three to ten-years old. The collection consists of three styles: Very Boss a round style, Very Bombe an oversize pair and Very Pan Pan a retro look. Each style is available as sunglasses or as prescription frames in an assortment of colors. True to the name, the look book features adorable kids full of personality modeling the glasses in mugshots. Click on the image below to view larger images in a gallery.
I love the Harajuku Mini collection by Gwen Stefani for Target and I’m happy to say that it’s not just a one-time thing. Over the weekend, Gwen Stefani shared that the collaboration with Target is set to continue: “Target is going to keep coming…We’ve got new collections coming and coming and coming. For the kids stuff, I draw from Japanese inspiration or from Japanese kids clothes.” When asked whether she liked to design children’s clothing more than adult clothing, Stefani answered: “I love to do both…I really enjoy doing the children’s right now probably because it’s new.”
My tiny dancer is often wearing something from the Harajuku Mini collection – I can’t wait to get more pieces for her!
Agneau shoes is a collection of hand made boys and girls shoes for kids aged from 6 months to eight-years old. The subtle color variations are achieved using natural dyes like green tea and persimmon. All of the shoes are made from 100% lambskin and are very soft. My favorite styles are pictured below and you can find them on the Fiddlesticks Webshop.
Namhee + Emma make the most darling accessories for little kids. Their collection includes whimsical brooches, hair pins, head bands, small bags, mobiles and socks. All of their pieces are hand made and their latest collection is accented with metallic gold and silver, as well as neon colors. So adorable!
Stools, Chairs and Accessories by Nahmee
Nahmee also has another accessories line that she works on herself that includes fun, colorful prints shaped into head bands, bracelets, necklaces and piglet statues. She also hand makes the cutest mini stools and chairs perfect for making the little ones feel at home.
Mademoiselle à Soho is an adorable line for boys and girls that is very polished without being stuffy – simply put, the collection was lovely. The line is also endearing – see those adorable knit vests? Their knit by grandmothers – literally. A knitting circle of grandmothers does all the knitting for Mademoiselle à Soho. All of the other clothing is hand-made and they only use all-natural fibers. A lot of thought is put into how kids wear the clothing and adjustments are made to accommodate kids. One new feature is straps sewn inside of coats so that when kids aren’t wearing coats they can wear the coat like a backpack (or a superhero). You can purchase the line on MademoiselleaSoho.com.
Lucky Fish is a hip brand for the kiddos based in Brooklyn, NY. All of the pieces in the collection are hand-printed in small batches. Stores that carry the brand can make custom orders choosing graphics, ink colors, shirt colors and styles so if you buy your Lucky Fish shirt in a store it’s likely that no other store will have the same design. All of the graphics are the work of artist and designer Jann Cheifitz. Lucky Fish also produces cute totes, fun necklaces and quirky pillows which you can purchase on SoLuckyFish.com.
When I walked by the PilePoil booth I couldn’t help smiling. Pink clouds, fuzzy animals and fun shapes – all in their fuzzy faux fur glory. PilePoil is a French company that makes blankets, carpets and accessories and all of the goods are made in France. Most importantly if you have kids around, all the pieces are machine washable. The carpets are hand cut and you can customize your carpet by choosing the color. PilePoil carpets are a great, fun way to add a pop of color or a bit of whimsy to your child’s room. Learn more about them on PilePoil.biz.
I’m a sucker for cute socks so when I saw the Me In Mind booth I had to stop and check out the cuteness. Me In Mind produces adorable socks with personality as well as baby shoes and kids’ sneakers. The line is particularly popular with Hollywood folks who like to dress up their kids in the most stylish clothing they can find.
One of the coolest things about Me In Mind is their sock replacement program – yep, you heard correctly. You know that monster in your washing machine that eats socks? Well you don’t have to worry about him any more. If you lose a Me In Mind sock just contact the company and they will replace your lost sock!
