Lali will present their label for the first time in Europe at Playtime Paris from tomorrow. With a sweet and fresh feel it’s no surprise that this artisan label is stocked at Anthropologie. They have a great range from detailed girl’s dresses to a wonderful new range for boys launching at AW18, the accessories are a favourite!

The collection was inspired by the concept of Hygge, or winter coziness. The joys of indoor play. Snow capped mountains in the distance, and woodland animals that seem to come out of the woods and into our imagination. Feeling that the forest is just a bit more magical with the sound of rustling leaves under foot and dusting of snow on top. Our AW2018 collection is filled with texture and warmth–from alpaca woolies to warm double layered cotton, and even a bit of faux fluff in the mix.
You will find Kinnari and the Lali Aw18 collection at Playtime Paris 27th-29th January stand P19.
