Mini Rodini Autumn/Winter 2014 collection "Quel Carrousel"

Today the first autumn/winter drop by Mini Rodini have finally hit the stores! This time their collection was inspired by the life and people behind the circus. As they say, the clothes are especially designed to be comfortable enough to wear when traveling with the caravan from town to town in the early light of dusk; durable enough for any aspiring little acrobat when hanging upside down in roman rings facing challenging situations, and stylish enough for young mice trainers when performing in the ring accompanied by the circus orchestra. Sweet!

I really love this years collection, it is so much fun! My favorite print from this first drop is definitely the quirky weightlifters (their hairy armpits kills me!). I love that it is seen as a unisex print and not only for the boys. Little O. is so going to rock that dress! I can't wait for the dogs and the mice to show up in the next couple of rounds :) If I have to say one negative thing, is that I would have loved to see the cheese on other garments than just the outerwear - it is so good!

Wolf & Rita Autumn-Winter 2014/15 collection "Kids got the Blues"

Oh yeah! The new Autumn-Winter collection by Wolf and Rita is all about rock'n'rol, 50's music stars and fast vintage cars. It's about turning those cold, blue and melancholic winter days into a celebration - “The kids have got the blues!” shouts their new collection. Love it!

I featured their spicy spring collection in the blog not so long ago, which was absolutely spectacular. For this upcoming season they have topped themselves once again with a more edgy style of new floral prints, a cool mix of fabrics incorporating also faux leather and shiny lurex, and with a perfect color palette for the cold months ranging from pale green to a beautiful, deep indigo blue and cool black and white monochrome.

Tomasz Solinski - Stunning kids photography

A lot of my inspiration for my work in the store and here on the blog comes from the social media or just surfing around the internet. There is so much talent out there and I just love when I finally get that "Oh wow!" outburst. Tomasz Solinski and his Timeless Photography completely wowed me the other day. I already knew a couple of his photos, but I didn't know who the artist behind them was. Unfortunately I haven't been able to dig up much info about him though, but hey... a picture says more than a thousand words, right, and his work definitely speaks for itself! Take a look...

Bobo Choses Autumn-Winter 2014/15 "A Day In L.A."

Oh, am I excited about today's post! I love Bobo Choses and I have been dying to see what they have been up to for this upcoming season. Friday evening it was finally released to the press and of course... they completely nailed it again! Their amazing new Autumn-Winter 2014/15 collection is inspired by Los Angeles city and the imaginary of the 50's: the glamour of the movie stars at Ch√Ęteau Marmont, a walk through Sunset Boulevard, or the swans at Echo Park Lake.

I am crazy about that pure rock'n'roll style with leopard fur coats, hairy jackets, shinny leggings, their grungy knit sweaters and not to mention those old school military inspired backpacks! I am thinking Nico and the Velvet Underground meets Nirvana in a super cool 2014 mini version. With Bobo's characteristic prints playing the starring role, the collection represents the magic, the boldness and the fun of spending "A day in L.A."


Bobo Choses Autumn-Winter 2014/15 "A day in L.A."


A DAY IN L.A.

In the morning at Echo Park, vain palm trees look
at themselves in the mirroring waters,
while swans praise them for their hairstyles.

What I saw is what I say, it’s just a day in L.A.

At noon on Sunset Boulevard, cartoons take a break
from the screens and birds that go for a walk
take off their hats to greet each other.

What I saw is what I say, it’s just a day in L.A.

In the evening, at the movie theater, a giant peanut
shushes a couple of fur coats that won’t let him listen
to the film’s dialogues because they don´t stop chatting.

What I saw is what I say, it’s just a day in L.A.

At night, over the skies of Venice Beach,
stars that weren't featured in the movies show off
their best splendor hoping to pass the casting.

What I saw is what I say, it’s just a day in L.A.

Bobo Choses is an ethical kidswear brand created in 2008 by Catalan art directors Adriana Esperalba and Laia Aguilar. They use lots of organic cotton and their comfortable clothes and carefully selected colors go hand in hand with playful, poetic and imaginative prints: Each collection is a fantastic world on it's own, with its singular illustrated characters and its own story. As a result, the collections are fun, unique and meaningful.

The new collection will soon be in the stores, so make sure to follow them on facebook to not miss out on this great moment! They also have their own online shop stocked with nice offers.

Now what is your favorite AW14 Bobo style? I would love to hear from you!

Kicked it in the sun - Kids' summer accessories

Summer is definitely my favorite season. I love the chilled, beachy mood everybody is in, just wanting to have a good time. And I absolutely love to see my little girl run around butt naked all day apart from her usual hat and sunglasses - just because she can! So instead of doing my usual KIDdO Style post I thought I would make a board with a few sunny accessories that I found here and there.
