Everyone is busy getting ready for the next children’s trade show Playtime Paris, with lots of excitement and probably a tiny bit of stress. It’s two weeks before the opening and Ewa Wróbel-Hultqvist, designer of EFVVA sent us a preview of her Winter 2016 collections, that will be on display at the show.
For Spring Summer 2016, Caramel baby&child takes a nostalgic wander through the archives for the latest collection. Referencing a 70s spirit of bohemia, the brand explores three strands from the decade that style has clearly not forgotten: fragile lilac and orchid prints, carob brown and chambray denim, and delicate embroidery details.
Oeuf’s design is thoughtful and focused on three key principals: quality, practicality and function. Their Christmas selection is full of soft, luxurious items made of hypoallergenic and eco-friendly baby alpaca wool. All Oeuf knits are made in Bolivia in line with fair trade principles.
Clothing, toys, books, stationery are all part of Caramel Baby&Child’s exclusive Christmas range. Their current website is dedicated to gifting. It is nicely organised in price categories, making things easy to pick up items and compose gift sets. Little products start at 9£ and are all very special, poetic, hand made, unique.
The brand VERMALA was created by Eliane (Fashion/Textile Designer) and Ani (Journalist/Music Consultant). Made to last, with a clean design, VERMALA’s backpacks “Blue Mountain” and “Red Mountain” are inspired by the Alps and by nature. A great hybrid between the classical French “cartable” and the Swiss mountaineer’s backpack.
Dandy Star‘s Winter collection is very Pop and colourful, as usual. The tees, sweat shirts and socks are like a dose of fizzy vitamines and we love this joyful approach to a wardrobe – the best way to enter cold grey weather.
Launched by Svetlana Ziggel and Galina Plakinger, Plakinger started with bespoke atelier designs for luxury clients from Russia, Middle East and USA before turning into a proper international label. Their dresses bring together feminine classics and elements of traditional men’s tailoring.
