Brand Watch | I Dig Denim AW14 ' The Denim Ocean'

Our favourite Scandinavian denim brand I Dig Denim is back with another season of denim treasures!

I Dig Denim's Autumn/Winter collection 2014/2015 is a tribute to the cool factor of denim. Inspiration is drawn from the fabric itself, and how it can be mixed and matched to create contemporary yet timeless looks. In this collection they have opted for a downright relaxed look, pairing denim with sweaters, jackets and beanies. They have kept their popular jeans fits from previous collections, but this season they come in a wider range of colours, as well as tops without prints and knits.

It is no secret that we love this brand and have featured it a lot. It is hands down my kids favourite denim and with their soft take on denim it is not hard to see why.

'The Denim Ocean' will be available very soon at retailers and in their own webshop. For more info, please visit:

SNEAK PEEK | Ígló & Indí SS15

Islandic brand Ígló & Indí has just shown their magic SS15 collection over at Playtime Paris this weekend. The collection entitled 'Songs from the Horizon' is a love declaration to the magic land of the north.

"Picture a island far away in the arctic north, where the ocean merges seamlessly with the clear blue sky. On the sandy beaches carefree children run, sing, dance and play with their animal companions. Emulating their movements, they swim like the fish and sing like the birds. With a horsetail here and a few flamingo feathers there, some have even began to take the shape of their soft and furry friends. In their own little enchanted world, singing by the horizon, anything is possible".

Made from the softest top quality fabric and embellished with ruffles, bows, stripes, patches and unique prints, the Ígló & Indí spring/summer 15 collection stays true to its signature style. Inspired by it's two character Ígló & Indí the collection is divided into three colour stories, making it fun and easy for the parents to mix and match. The palette includes, strawberry pink, gellato yellow, bright plum, cerise, lupine lilac, arctic blue, aqua green, pearl and ash grey.

Sneak Peek | Mini Rodini AW14 "Quel Carrousel"

It's always fun when Swedish label Mini Rodini drops their first sneak peek at their upcoming collections, and here are the first images of their AW14 collection, entitled - Quel Carrousel.

 It is inspired by the life and people behind the circus. Clothes comfortable enough to wear when traveling with the caravan from town to town in the early light of dusk. Durable enough for any little aspiring acrobat when hanging upside down in roman rings facing challenging situations. Stylish enough for young mice trainers when performing in the ring accompanied by the circus orchestra.
With a large number of sustainable and pieces made from GOTS and Fairtrade certified cotton, this is a collection suited for sparkling activities, a lot of fun and well worthy a place in the spotlight both in front of and behind the curtains.

You can find drop 1 of the new collection in stores like Orange Mayonnaise, Springstof, Buckets and Spades, Zirimola, Loja Dada, Ladida, Shan and Toad, Smallfolk at July 31st.

Brand Watch | Zara Winter '13

The new Zara Lookbook is out. Love the no nonsense / Terry Richardson approach to it. There are plenty of good wardrobe fillers here. Great basics with that little extra twists and a few nice winter jackets are in there as well.

I was doing a little dance of joy when Zara were finally launched Down Under, but I have to say I am quite disappointed with what is offered here. Granted we have opposite seasons here, but the innovative design, especially in the kids section is no where near what is offered in Europe. Still a puzzle to me, but happy that there is an online option. Above is a few of my favourites from this season.

Brand Watch | NicoNico AW13

A look at the new AW13 range from US based label Nico Nico. We have been long time fans of this label for its buttery soft raglan tops and comfy leggings and sweatpants. Less is more with this label and their new range doesn't disappoint!  While a lot of labels seem to mute down the colours for Autumn and Winter Nico Nico turn them up with colour names like citrus, tomato and midnight. They have also added some gorgeous, neutral thick knits in heather grey, oatmeal and black that goes well with most attires.

We can't wait to see this collection hit stores soon! You can find Nico Nico in Australia via Minibots / Skip To My Lou and in Europe via Scandinavian Minimall / Oii Barnkläder

Sneak Peek | Two Els F/W 13 Collection

I am going gaga over Two Els new F/W13 Collection. Completely handmade by young fashion designer Hollie Kim in NYC, this collection will be her label's second collection.

I am amazed how strong and unique pieces she is delivering for each collection. With clear inspiration sources from native American/Aztec patterns and possessing some beautiful tailoring making skills, there is a lot to crave this fall/winter. I was going to mention our favourites but to be completely honest, there isn't one piece I wouldn't like to own!!

Sneak Peek | I Dig Denim AW13

A sneak peek at Swedish denim label I Dig Denim's upcoming AW13/14 collection. We own several of IDD denim products and we are thrilled with their quality. This upcoming collection entitled 'The Ice Blue Ocean' is yet again filled with durable and super stylish denim wear for the kids/teens.

There are three heavy knits that would keep anybody warm through out the cold days of winter, Palermo, Amarillo and Torino. There is also a faded denim sweater called Bastian that has a great look to it. In the line up for autumn and winter is of course also their signature cool jeans - Dehli (raw), Alabama (in grey and black), Madison (for the girls in blue and black), Arizona, Alabama (blue) Arvada (for the girls), Newark (blue and raw), Soho and new is Rio leggins and Daytona pants as well as the raw looking Bastian sweatpants in light grey.

I love how IDD seem to supply the best looking denim wear to such a big age range, starting from size 86 (12 months) and goes up to 164 (14 years) and mama can be happy to because there is also a women's range. The AW13 collection hits stores in August/September.

Lil Missie Munster AW13

The lil missie munster is in town! The last of our Munster Kids AW13 reveal is for the little independent missie, the "I can do it myself" girl, the strong minded, outgoing and curious little lady. Lil Missie is the last in the growing collection that is Munster Kids, the little sister to Missie Munster but definitely strong enough to stand by herself.

I love that even though it is a winter collection they don't shy away from nice warm and strong colours, that reminds us of the wonderful summer we have had so far! Bright yellows, orange and strong patterns will be a hit with the little ladies out there and how great is the tiger zip up hoodie?! Love the yellow and pink details and it will be such a great thing to snug up in when winter comes around the corner...

Danefæ AW12 collection!

Normally winter and autumn means darker colours in most collections but not when it comes to Danish Danefæ!

Make sure to check out their new section in their webstore, or make a bargain in their outlet section! I am happy to report there is also plenty of nice gear for both mum and dad too!

It's that time people...when the all the designers are getting ready to release their new collections, and THIS is one we have been looking forward to a little bit extra much. Californian label, MINI & MAXIMUS fall 2012 collection named, Animal Collective. I absolutely love their introduction to this collection so I will let the words of the creators do the explaining of this one!

He scales the wall like a monkey. She screams louder than a squawking parrot. They track mud in like a pack of not four but six legged wolves. You hunt them down to brush their teeth, to tie their shoes, or eat their vegetables. Day after day it's a constant game of catch and release. They run free, trouble ensues and crazy things happen. Who are these elusive, untamed little creatures? The makers of Mini & Maximus clap their hands and say, "we want more"! 

This Fall we stare down these little animal-like creatures, then add extra teeth, a crown or long lashes. We look to artists like Evan Rossell, Brook Reidt and 5 year old, Mika for extra graphics of fictitious figures so that you can adorn your wild imps in our tees, onesies, hoodies and sweatpants. Now they can show us just how creatively mischievous they are, in hopes that they will be recognized as reckless comrades on the school yard, and you can avoid those perfectly pesky my-child-always-color-inside-the-lines type parents.

I have only shown a little of a really nice big line from Mini & Maximus. There are lots of nice color option in most graphics and it feels like I have only touched the surface. And yes, we are extra excited since it is my daughter who have had the great pleasure in drawing some of the characters for this line. You can also look forward to some smaller sizes this time around since they have now released onesies for the tiniest rebels on the block. As always Mini & Maximus delivers something vibrant, fresh, playful and unexpected! Just the way we like it...

The Animal Collective will be out in stores around Mid August.

Sneak Peek | kidscase AW12

With 3 corner stones like independent, sophisticated and functional, Dutch brand kidscase have done it again! Their AW12 collection is filled with little knitted gems and gorgeous rich earthy colours. I have written about Kidscase earlier, and it is no secret that I have loved this label for a very long time now. In their new collection, designer Jacqueline van Nieuwkerk  have manged to fuse a touch of streetwear chic and sophisticated vintage into a complete and contemporary wardrobe!

"The collection fall-winter 12-13 is also driven by a strong feeling for subtle shades and rich tones: ebony, olive, tangerine, cream, caramel and velvety turquoise, to make profoundly stylish combinations. Signature pieces are the heavy-knits with a hand-made appeal, and the line of deliciously cool and comfy winter coats. Soft, strong jerseys and urban cut jeans finish this tasteful collection. On top of that a substantial part of the kidscase line is made of organic cotton, and carries social certification as well."

We can't wait to see this collection hit the stores and personally we will try and get our mitts on the lovely oversized knitted tangerine jumper and some striking contrast leggings.
