Bear loves wild nature. Not a surprising fact for a boy whose dad spends half of his life in the most remote African and Arctic regions, painting wild animals (artists duo www.ollysuzi.com) and organizing amazing private safari expeditions (www.ollysuziexpeditions.com). Let’s take a little trip into the world of Bear and mother Lisa Samos, founder of kid’s vintage e-store www.seasonalstyle4kids.co.uk.
