KIDdO Style: Galicia

Heey, so we are back from a fantastic trip to Galicia in the Northwest of Spain. If you ever have the chance to go, GO! It is like a modern version of the Shire, very green in a savage and volumptious way, and with small stone houses all with their own orchards big enough to feed the whole street. You see an impressive diversity in the agriculture and the food there is really something exceptional. Everything is so natural, fresh and full of taste, which of course has to do with the humid climate, but a lot of it also comes from this micro production in the backyards of the inhabitants, so you can taste the love and care in every bite. 

Apart from eating, we mostly hung out on the different beaches, playing, running around and disturbing all of the little crabs and fish we would find in the seashore. Little O. was thrilled! She loves the beach and never gets bored of rolling around in the sand. Take a look...

I thought rolling around in the sand was enough, but nooo... She wanted to shower in it!

Radicool Dude - Boys' streetwear from New Zealand

Today is all about the boys! Parents usually say that it's harder to find clothes for boys than it is for girls, but somehow I have always thought the contrary in spite of (or because of...) having a daughter. I see so many cool brands out there making them killer styles. Luckily a lot of the brands are unisex and I am pretty sure that my little girl would rock today's feature too: Radicool Dude

This awesome new label draws influences from a unique mix of surf, skate and street cultures providing stylish, comfortable and fun filled kids fashion. Behind it you will find the lovely husband and wife team, Emily and Brendan Boniface, who upon the arrival of their baby boy became inspired to create Radicool Dude. After years in the fashion industry they found their new passion in kids apparel, using this opportunity to express their adventurous and free spirit through cool and quirky kids' styles. 

"New Zealand owned and designed Radicool Dude makes its own rules and sets its own trends, so jump on board or get left behind..."

This Autumn/Winter 2014 is only their first collection and very promising it is! I love their overall cool street style with all the quirky little details their garments have, and the mix of fabrics, like the original use of ethnic patterns. I really recommend you to take a look at the Radicool Dude webpage and do a little shopping while you are at it. Those pants are just too good pass!

KIDdO Style: Lizards!

The lizards has to be my favorite Mini Rodini print this season! I love the edgy, rock'n'rolla style, while still being something that children can relate to and be fascinated by. O. usually uses the lizard tank with a pair of pants looking so freaking cool, but this Saturday it was really hot outside so the stylish ballerina skirt felt like the freshest option.

KIDdO Style: Getting lost!

This weekend we wanted to take O. on her first horseback ride on Montju├»c. We had been talking about it for a while and she was SO psyched. We went there a couple of months ago and it had been pretty straight forward and easy to go. So we got into the car and started climbing the mountain...

I have no idea what happened, but it was suddenly impossible to find and the more people we asked, the more lost we got. A "slight" tension started to build between her dad and I, and O. got more and more white in the face as we drew up and down and round and round - not exactly the family quality time we had expected!  So we finally all agreed to just drop the horses and start enjoying the trip. Best decision ever! We parked the car near some beautiful fountains and took a long walk in the amazing surroundings.

I have the great luck to have a very reasonable and flexible daughter, which I definitely should give some more credit in times like these. I felt really bad that she didn't get her horse ride and after many years of working with kids I always expect her to freak out, which would be the normal reaction for a three year old. But she is just such a cool little lady, she just wants to have fun!

So in spite of all, we ended up having a lovely time exploring and discovering new parts of the beautiful urban mountain. "We'll visit the horses another day" was her answer... And we most certainly will! .... Or at least we will try to and then see where it leads us!

Vermilio - Ethical, sustainable and soulful kidswear with a story

Vermilio is a beautiful Kickstarter project with natural, fun, seasonless and ethically made children's clothes. They believe that every thread has a soul, sustaining ancient textile traditions, protecting the planet and giving hope and livelihood to women in need.

Behind the project is the Austrian wonder woman, Sandra Loeffelmann, who contacted me a couple of weeks ago informing me about their launch. I thought it was such a wonderful project, really worthwhile supporting, and I hope that you will too!

With Sandra's background in fashion, anthropology and textile arts she teamed up with the experienced social worker Sylvia on one of her trips to the Thai-Burma border. They shared goals of preserving traditional weaving and dyeing skills, spreading organic cotton cultivation, compensating with fair wages, and being part of the emerging slow textile movement, and so Vermilio was born. (Don't miss the beautiful video in the bottom!)
