Hands up if you can’t walk past an Oliver Bonas without peeking inside? I definitely can’t. It’s totally brilliant for gifts and home and, well, lots actually – things you didn’t even know you needed! So what exciting news it is that they have just launched babywear! The collection is titled Olly B Babywear and draws inspiration from the colours and prints from their womenswear designs. Look here…
Lots of kids and babies suffer from Eczema. It feels horrible, looks horrible and is very, very sensitive to materials. A problem anyway, and a definite problem stylewise.
When her son Frankie developed eczema, mum Amanda decided to develop a product that her boy could wear, that looked stylish, felt good and didn’t cost the earth. Lucky for Frankie – and everyone else, Amanda and her business partner Judith had worked for years in fashion, for brands including Warehouse, House of Fraser and Whistles.
And so Panda and the Sparrow was born – a stylish line of baby and kids clothing made entirely from bamboo.
And let me tell you – it’s not hippyish or happy clappy. Or, what I would have been most concerned about – vile. Check it..
OK OK, bear with me on this one. H&M have created an exclusive line for newborns – called Newborn Exclusive (creative…).
And not only is the collection super stylish, but each item purchased from the collection means a donation by H&M to UNICEF to provide life saving vaccines for disadvantaged children.
Today for our Friday Fash Off this week, we turn to onesies, rompers, babygro’s – call it what you want – spend more, spend less – either way it will have vomit and snot down it in a matter of moments. But for those few seconds it doesn’t – boy is it nice to look at a cute STYLISH baby!
Even though my spiritual home is New York, actually..a cross between New York and a paradise island like Bora Bora – I’m very proud to be BRITISH. It has crept up on me that actually Britain is at the pinnacle of fashion. We ain’t followers no more. WE IS LEADERS!
And leading the way in championing British Style for kids, is retailer IndiaCoco. For kids aged 0-8 it is awash with British big hitters like No Added Sugar and ilovegorgeous. Set up by Claire Harper who is the former Marketing Director of award winning nursery and fashion retailer Mamas & Papas – this is one mumpreneur who knows the score!
