Duchess and Lion - Cool kidswear made in the USA

I love jumpsuits, it should be a mandatory item in every closet; babies, kids, adults... Well it certainly is in mine ;) It is such an easy and comfortable garment, perfect for wild play and at the same time adds a special coziness when chilling out at home. The new children's clothing label Duchess and Lion makes some of the coolest jumpsuits for kids I have seen in a long time!

Duchess and Lion is a family run business from San Francisco featuring vintage inspired designs with a modern twist. Everything is ethically made from scratch in the USA to ensure fair trade conditions for all the workers involved. They have a sense for picking out and combining exquisite fabrics, and I love the cool detail of actually using real, vintage war patches on some garments making them 100% unique.

Awesome, right? I have been crushing on this brand since I first discovered them in the lovely blog Petit & Small not so long ago. As you can see in the photos, they obviously make other garments than suits, like those amazing scarfs, some really funky pants and adorable 60's inspired dresses, but those jumpsuits... Oh, those jumpsuits are completely killing me!

We are close to December and some items in the Duchess and Lions web shop are of course sold out, but it also means that we are not far from a new collection of stunning pieces, yay! 

Now, it's Black Friday today and I am going shopping! So have a beautiful weekend out there :)

Bandit Kids SS15 sneak peek!

Today I am really excited to show you a sneak peak from the super cool Australian kidswear brand Bandit Kids' upcoming spring collection 2015, only just released on their website, woohoo!

I have written about Bandit Kids on several occasions, cause it is a brand I am completely crazy about. I love their style, their perfect and absolutely beautiful message "All kids are cool" and their upcoming collection is REALLY promising! Great vintage colors and prints, and as always fantastic lifestyle photography full of ambiance. 

The collection is inspired by past memories of long summer holidays with empty pools, faded plastic flamingos on the dry lawn, sticky ice cream melting onto your hands - A combination of classic vintage with a happy and warm summertime boredom feeling. Welcome to  the "Kingdom of Cool"...

Very French Gangsters AW14 - Kids' handmade designer glasses

Oh yeah! Very French Gangsters has finally released their new Autumn-Winter 2014/15 kids collection of super funky, unique and, as always, very stylish handmade glasses and sunglasses. 

Their high quality eyewear is the result of a well worked process where all the little details are cared for, making no compromise between comfort and fashion, and this is what has made the young brand a world wide favorite! They really have an incredible and distinct design and I love their always fun way of presenting it, finally making the wearing of prescription glasses a super cool and playful aid for the kiddos, right! 

Their look book is shot by the great Katrina Tang and all I can say is that it rocks!!!

Kira Kids Autum-Winter 2014/15 - Quirky kids clothes made in USA

Kira Kids is another kidswear brand I have completely fallen head over heals for! I love their quirky, unisex style with fun illustrations and their new autumn collection 2014 is a blast. I have a thing for weird foods on kids clothes, so when I saw those pretzels and specially that hot dog with mustache and top hat, I just had to share it with you ;)

Their AW14 'Big City' collection is inspired by the buzzing life in New York City, the typical street food munchies and the stories and adventures every street corner hides. Their super cool look book has a funky retro air and is shot by the ever brilliant Flannery O'Kafka and styled by Ashley Gibson.

Milk & Biscuits Autumn-Winter 2014/15 kids fashion collection

I love the new Milk & Biscuits collection! It's a limited, but very well made collection with a cool mix of casual styles combined with more traditional cuts and always maintaining that special, quirky British flair.

The Anglo-Chinese kids clothing brand was founded in 2013 by the experienced art director Kate Smith who fell in love with a Shangheinese man on one of her travels in Asia. Many years later and with a couple of kids in the middle, they came up with the lovely Milk & Biscuits.

This season's look book is shot by the brilliant photographer Michelle Marshall. The scene is an old school 70's photo booth reviving those fun and crazy "retro selfie" moments. It is such a cool idea and completely sets the mood of the collection, it sure does leave most of us with a smirky smile on our face thinking back on those times, right?!

Waddler Autumn-Winter 2014/15 kids fashion collection

For this autumn/winter 2014/15 the lovely Waddler family has moved on from their last Brazilian beach adventure to the wilds of the Uruguayan pampas. Their quirky and oh so wonderful, new, vintage style collection is called 'The Outstanding Journey of the Waddler Caravan' and is inspired by the old fashioned circuses that once traveled around those lands. 

As always, their collection is made of luxurious baby alpaca yarn and soft organic cotton, but adding some new funky and very appropriate prints, if I might say, like the English bowler hat and the South American lama.
