The simple cotton underwear of Goat Milk; so chic





These images from Goat Milk took me straight to my childhood; I was wearing the exact same kind of cotton underwear. I especially liked the winter version, very soft and warm for the ski season. It’s so lucky that Tania and Roland, both New Yorkers and founders of the brand, are giving a second life to those simple and so chic, almost forbidden pieces. The collection is designed in the NYC offices of the brand and produced in India. “Our line is an extension of our personalities and sensibilities. Simple, elegant, European inspired. Nothing too flashy or overly colorful” says Tania. But don’t get too excited and impatient; the line is not available to the public yet. You will have to wait till January 2011 to buy this exquisite underwear collection. To see more products or for wholesale inquiries, visit goatmilknyc.com.

Marcel monkey and Beverly bear






A former buyer and designer, Craig Anczelowitz always dreamt of making toys. After more than ten years spent in New York working for prestigious companies (Kate’s Paperie, ABC Carpet & Home, Outfitters), Craig decided to settle down in Thailand. He had traveled throughout Asia many times for work and had always enjoyed his time developing home decor there most. Not very long after, he gave birth to Nook-nook, a collection of funny creatures. Handmade with much love, the nook-nooks are produced with respect and care in a family-run workshop in chiang mai, Thailand. The nook nook collection has been created deep within the thickets of the “hideaway forest” to  brighten your day and put a big smile on your face! nook nook features such hand stitched goodies as the cute-as-buttons “critter” dolls, sensationally splendid stationery, petite and precious purses as well as oodles and oodles of adorable accessories”.

Short listed for the Elle Decoration Best of British Design award 2010, the Alphabet cushions by Elsie Dodds are a must! The designs are inspired by a way to learn through association and there is fun to be had finding all that is hidden in the patterns. For children and adults to share and enjoy, to encourage curious natures and stimulate imaginations.

Kurabo denim for boys





Tom & Drew is one of the first children’s wear companies to introduce Japanese Kurabo denim to the market. T&D’s denim is of the highest possible quality and has been imported from Osaka, Japan. The Kurabo denim paired with appliqué pima cotton t-shirts, “slubby” jersey reversible hoodies and light weight “space dyed” knit shorts make for perfect summer outfits. Tom&Drew is also one of the few companies that focuses on boys and boys only, and I have to say that those short pants looks pretty good, even under the rain… www.tomanddrewboys.com
