New pre-spring items 2015 by Little Cocoa Bean

I have had little time for the blog lately with the new collections arriving to the store and my daughter sick all last week. I have the great privilege to be a work-at-home-mom, but this is also my disadvantage, cause I get ZERO done when there are kids around! I don't even want to try, but prefer to dedicate my time 100% to her and get some intensive work done during the night. I bet I am not alone on this one, right? 'No sleep til Brooklyn' seems to be on repeat on my mind...

Anyways, surfing around the web I noticed that the organic children's label Little Cocoa Bean has just released new fabulous stuff in their online shop. I have written about them on an earlier occasion and they never seem to disappoint! Super cool, monochrome mini collection with funky dashes of red, olé! Check it out:

Gardner and the Gang Spring-Summer 2015

I absolutely love Gardner and the Gang! I love their hilarious, quirky and very original illustrations with those rather psychedelic characters. They are launching their new collection the 28th of January and I can't wait!

For this spring 2015 the Singapore based Swedish graphic designer, Kristin Nyström, is delivering the enchanted world of magic and rock and roll. Here you will find the magician Zebra Patsy who put a spell on their famous figure Helmut the Flamingo and turned him into a Kiss loving dachshund called Geen - wonderful stuff!

For their lookbook Kristin has gathered a simply brilliant team: The styling is done by Renata Ferko (Curated By) and photography by Maya Vidulich (Miss Maya). Check it out:

Fantastic, right?! On top of that Gardner and the Gang makes their cool kids clothes of organic goodness, which makes me completely sold. But as I mentioned, you will have to have patience and wait a week more before the launch where it will be available in these stores. Gardner and the Gang also have their own webshop with a fabulous sale going right now!

Maiko Mini - New Australian kidswear brand

I love how so many new and really brilliant kidswear brands from the land of Oz are popping up all of the time - I have got to go there soon... Ok, what I wanted to say, is that Maiko Mini is one of them. I discovered them through Instagram and immediately fell in love with those super cool tees.

Maiko Mini collaborates with the experienced UK based artist Sonia Hensler for their amazing hand drawn prints, featuring among others some incredible tigers, origami bunnies, funky chameleons, pink flamingos and my favorite monochrome pandas!

Sponsor highlight: Busy and the Boy online shop

Today is a special day cause I am introducing you to one of my new sponsors: The super cool online kidswear shop from the UK, Busy and the Boy. They have really got such a funky selection of designer clothes and accessories in the age range of 0-10 years from brands like Indikidual, Popupshop, Boys & Girls, Loud Apparel, Wolf & Rita and much more. I love their minimalist style with lots of cool monochromes, edgy prints and overall street attitude, oh yeah! 

I wanted to get to know a bit more about the shop so I had a little talk with the founder Lana Keen which you can see below. You also do not want to miss the discount code further down, wink wink ;)

Tell me a little about yourself, what is your background? 

I’m Lana, mum to Finn and Ava and have recently launched Busy and the Boy – a kids clothing website. 

What gave you the idea to start Busy and the Boy? 

I became a mum firstly to Finn (aka the Boy) 7 years ago and Ava (aka Busy) 2 years later.  At the time I was living in Shoreditch and able to find really cool kids clothes that weren’t the typical pastels and florals that seemed to be everywhere else. A couple of years ago I moved out of London and found it really difficult to find Finn and Ava clothes that both they, and I liked.  On speaking to friends and other mums, I started researching brands online and the idea of Busy and the Boy first started to take hold.  Around 6 months ago I finally launched – my dream website with a curated collection of the coolest and most cutting edge kids clothes and accessories.

How do you describe the style of your shop?

Busy and the Boy has been a real labour of love. Finn and Ava have definite opinions on what they like to wear and I’m really proud of that independence – even at the ages of 7 and 4. Taking into account this independent spirit, I’ve worked to curate brands and individual pieces that reflect a certain unique style – each of them tested out for style and appeal but also for durability and quality. The website itself is clear and simple. I’m passionate that they should have every confidence in the product. This also comes with a ‘no quibbles’ returns policy as standard. Being a parent is time consuming enough so I want to make the process of clothes shopping as easy and as enjoyable as possible.

Who are your favorite kidswear designers at the moment? 

Obviously all the brands on the website! I love brands who aren’t afraid to use colour and texture. My personal all time favourites are The Brand, Finger in the Nose, Boys & Girls, Molo and Mini Rodini. Wolf & Rita use beautiful prints and I especially liked their last autumn winter floral prints. 

Sales have started, what are your top 3 must-have items in your shop right now?

What is your dream situation for Busy and the Boy? 

At the moment I’m just enjoying its success! I’ve been amazed at the feedback and by how many mums and dads appreciate the pieces I’ve collected. I’ve been researching for next season and can’t wait to make the final edit, my problem will be narrowing it down as I’ve already seen so many great S/S pieces. There are some really fun colour-ways being introduced and some new brands I’m looking to stock. Longer term, I’m keen to start looking at designing some pieces myself – I just need to find the 25th hour in the day to do so…

I can definitely relate to that! Thank you so much, Lana.
