Here is a Style Spotter for them boys. Or to be PC and uni-sexish – they can be for girls too, but they are featured in the Boys section so please cope – or have a go at the brand if you are so inclined. I digress…
I’m going to make my first week back all about fashion – darlings. (Word association, sorry). And because it’s Back to School Week and we all have a ton of school admin crap to read (or not if you are me), I shall make this post light on words, heavy on pictures. Let’s begin here.
All I have to say is look at this brilliant new Studio AW16 kids collection by H&M (yes – believe it).
This collection is where powerful tailoring meets Swedish heritage and handicraft. Using patterns and embellishments from Swedish folklore, the collection’s details and textures draw inspiration from animals of the forest. Oh yes siree. Here are more more MORE images – click on each image to see the full picture. Then drool.
Did anyone else let our a giant WHOOP of yesterday (once the kisses and assurances that everything was going to be OK) on your kids’ first day back at school? I’ll start. ME! Now don’t get me wrong. I do adore my kids. Just in ever so slightly smaller doses than you get from 24/7 for 8 weeks on the trot. Like THISSSSSSSSSSSSSSS (insert giant hand width) MUCH!
Now, as well as back to school heralding the end of summer – it also means the start of winter. Not in the literal sense, but most certainly in the wardrobe sense. And as always at KSJ HQ, we like our readers to be on top on trends. So over the coming weeks, we shall be paying attention to our fave AW16 trends and how to get the look for them kids. Today – it’s purrrrrrrrrrfecty obviously, about cats. My favourite type of cat. One that is not a living actual creature. So, to the CATwalks we go…
First up Gucci. My complete obsession and unrequited love – largely due to my epic fail of not having married a billionaire. Next we have Loewe – which I was told, in a very passive-agressive way some years ago by a complete bit£% i used to work with at a designer fashion brand, is pronounced Low-aire-vey. Whatevs – they too had cats!
So here is how it works for kids.
It’s almost that time of year where we pretend to be sporty types. We make a big hoo ha about taking the family skiing – oh it’s so good for them, fresh air, exercise blah blah – when really, it’s all about chocolate, rosti and copious amounts of gluwhein. Or maybe that’s just me. Either way, you need to get your kids looking the part on the slopes – and the best way to do this, is from the outside in. It’s so cold – those jackets are not coming off – so let’s get some ski style on with my Top 5.
First up – oh I know it’s not cheap, but boy is it stylish. And how cute that your kid will ski in this and look like either (a) an old-fashioned barbers sign or (b) a stick of rock. LOVE. Red Super Mojo Ski Jacket by Perfect Moment £270 alexandalexa. Also available in light blue stripe.
Hop little bunny, hop hop hop. My kids used to go MAD for this song. Now it’s all Tiny Tempah and Katy B. Oh how time flies when you’re cheffing, chauffering, nursing, air stewardessing, teaching and personal shopping for your kids! BUT we can still celebrate the bunny as it is very much in fashion this season. At floor level. Here are my top picks!
First up – when I first set eyes on these Ocra boots, I could barely breathe. You. Need. These. £93.82 Smallable.
