Impressions on childhood


Emily Ulmer began her career taking portraits of young people in that pivotal moment of transition from adolescence to adulthood. She has since become attracted to documenting another key moment in life, that of childhood. In her photographs, she attempts to show the beauty of childhood in its most natural state, without the romanticizing interpretation of the adult eye. She usually photographs children in their own environments, in order to capture a sense of their world. Emily does commissioned portraits as well as fashion stories that leave a deep impression of that point in time that we all leave behind. info@emilyulmer.com

From Sweden, with love for tradition

Many years ago in Sweden, life revolved around the homestead. Beautiful colours and patterns were highly appreciated, decorating both day-to-day life and festivities. Inspired by this heritage, Lycka Form presents a collection of blankets that combine the old with the new, traditional patterns and designs, in a contemporary way. The blankets are produced in Sweden, and made of pure wool. The children’s version, measures 100 x 75 cm. It is available in red, yellow, black& white and blue. You can order them directly from the producer www.testwebben.se. Let’s hope that featuring winter products on Pirouette today will help summer reach the UK. It’s still annoyingly cold here!

The handmade colourful high-class tees finished with felt up-prints are very fun to wear. No wonder : the choice of material, colours and forms of the upprints is decided togheter with children. Check out their accessories, a well thought complement to the clothing line.

Look up!

With the Sky Planter, Boskke really transforms the way people enjoy plants in their living environments. This company from New Zealand was no longer satisfied with having plants relegated to the remote corners of a room, so they elevated them into stunning interior features. Living spaces should be as beautiful and tranquil as a forest glade, no? Boskke’s designer Patrick Morris found a way of bringing more greenery into homes without cluttering the floor-space. Look up. Children will love this other way of contemplating life!
