Known for her one-of-a-kind handmade rag dolls, Jess Brown is introducing a small women’s wear range to her collections, inspired by her love for beautiful textiles. All of the line is shades of grey and natural linen and it’s all done in twice combed cotton.  The basic/essential pieces of a modern wardrobe, Jess’ way.  Irresistible.

Pictures taken at La Bastide de Richeaume, a lovely B&B with tons of charm at very friendly price. Breakfast is served in the garden under a tree, with homemade jams, fruits, delicious bread and viennoiseries. Highly recommended!

The inspiring world of Ryan Roche

.

Located two hours north of New York on the Hudson Valley, the house of fashion designer Ryan Roche is filled with light, poetry and  inspiring details.

The place is extremely peaceful and joyful at the same time, allowing space for reflexion, bringing true happiness.

For those who know children’s fashion, the name of Ryan Roche will be familiar. In 2004, Ryan opened a Brooklyn store called mor mor rita and selling her beautiful line of knits and woven pieces. A collection of dreamlike clothes with an amazing color palette that influenced the industry.

Today, Roche has moved to adult’s (while keeping a small production for children) and her eponymous line has won the loyal support of a client base including Maggie Gyllenhaal, Milla Jovovich, Anne Christensen and Olya Thompson. 

The house reflects pretty much the clothes that Ryan creates : quiet, soft, modern, poetic with subtle yet stimulating details.

Cult store

In the crib, a painting by artist Manena Frazier

.

It’s the temple of home decor, an Ali Baba’s cavern full of amazing things, an eclectic mix of vintage, folk and design. In New York everyone goes to ABC Carpet&Home, to buy furniture, carpets, bedding&linens, jewelry, beauty products, curtains, or simply to have a fun time admiring all the above. ABC Home also hosts a Pain Quotidien restaurant as well as the delicious ABC Kitchen opened in March of this year by chef Jean-Georges Vongerichten, and a shop in shop  by Tribeca based woman’s wear designer  Gary Graham.

.

About half  a decade ago, ABC Carpet&Home had a huge children’s department with the most amazing iron beds, giant stuffed animals, child-size planes and cars, toys, decor objects and an incredible number of children’s wear brands from all over the world. All the beautiful independent labels were on display. It was heaven.

.

Today, after a few moves in different parts of the store, the children’s department has settled down on the third floor. It’s not as big as it used to be, the selection of clothes is reduced to a few brands (mainly Tane Organics), but it is still an enchanting place to visit, with a good selection of wooden toys, little accessories and home decor.

.

On the bedding floor, don’t miss the wonderful sheets, throws, bathrobes by Society, the most desirable brand for home textiles from Italy.

Kids Love NY

IMG_6011-768x1024

When I ask, in my interviews, what city they dream to visit, kids very often answer New York (parents too!). From a very young age children will immediately connect with the city which never sleeps. Skyscrapers, lights, blue sky, giant streets, yellow cabs; so many attractive things in the Big Apple…

Muku, who is Muku?

.

.

.

.

Made in LithuaniaMuku is an adorable brand mainly focusing on kids clothing, but also playing around with toys, accessories, and whatever the designer’s exploring hands can create. The inspiration comes from DIY idea, recycling, remakes, urban art, etc. “We find most of our ideas and materials from grandparents cupboards, antique bookshops, flea markets, old books and pictures” writes Dovile the co-founder and designer. 

All clothes are made in Lithuania, out of local materials and especially linen, a Lithuanian specialty.

Muku was brought to my attention by Kid’s Gazette‘s author Santa Bindemane (read here). 

.

 “Muku’s spirit is less about fashion and more about a way of living. It`s about balance between form and function with each product being designed with children in mind. Cosy muted tones with accents of colour, freedom of motion, carefully selected natural fabrics – it`s all Muku“.
