Flamenco shoes go ballerinas

 

Like many other kids her age, little Isis Van Leeuwen wants to wear her Spanish flamenco shoes all day. Like many mothers, Hiskia doesn’t want her daughter to be a clone of Suri Cruise. Off the heels! …she started Gestipt,  a collection of stylish shoes that will fit under a dress and still survive the playground. The little Spanish shoe factory  that produces the Gestipt ballerinas has a lot of competition from Asia and  Hiskia really likes that – on a small level – she can help them keep the tradition of shoemaking in Spain alive. I is sure many mothers will like the idea : style, comfort, and support to a small “local” production unit. Not to mention the very young flamenco addicts who will be be able to wear their spotty shoes all day long. Also available in plain red. Gestipt.com.

“I think the Toddler Generation is about to freak out over these T-shirts and maybe even more so over the awesome customized boxes they arrive in!

Shirts That Go has tapped into the pleasure zone of a toddler’s brain by introducing t-shirts (and their unique boxes) with fire trucks, ice cream trucks, trains, bulldozers, motorcycles, pirate ships, helicopters, fighter jets, planes and much more!”

lesfilles1

Our guests today are French but live in Bahrain, small island of the Persian Gulf, near Qatar and not very far from Abu Dhabi and Dubai. Almost 10, Luna is a very intense little girl with thousand of questions at all times. Three years younger, Anaë (also called “Happy girl”at home) always skips on her tiptoes instead of walking. Virginie Dreyer, mother of the two, is the co-founder of CeQueJeVoeu (a fun PJ brand launched a couple of years ago – currently dormant) and the designer/creator of Tiny-Us project (www.tiny-us.com).

Rare finds at Bubble London

Among the brands that I am looking forward to discovering at Bubble London next month is Olive’s friend Pop. This new Australian label was created in 2009 by Julia Ferguson & Lea Walker. “The naive charm of Olive’s Friend Pop evoke a strong sense of nostalgia: of days spent outdoors making mudpies; of teddy tea-parties; of running until the point of collapse in fits of giggles, and the high quality fabrics and construction ensure that these will become heirloom pieces that you can pass down to your grandchildren.” (KidsStyleFile). The brand is designed in Australia and the production is facilitated out of Hong Kong. Available in about 30 boutiques around the world, including  Kido Store (Sydney), Kawaii Kids (online) and Bambie (South Korea).
