Cool Just Got a Whole Lot Cooler

I am pretty sure I have gotten a whole lot cooler just from looking at the new range from Walnut & Walrus! Filled with super cool prints, washed out colours, and simple cuts the whole range is oozing awesomeness...

Founded by Kalle Svanström and Aisa Sverin, Walnut & Walrus is built on a foundation graphic design, illustration, and fashion. With over 20 years of experience between them Kalle and Aisa wanted to combine a playful, artistic and fashionable approach to design while at the same time being environmentally friendly.

The first in what will no doubt be a long line of collections, 'Collection 01' is filled to the brim with styles that are packed with street cred. All three of the prints are top notch, from the washed out palms, abstract brush strokes, and my all time fave if I was forced to pick... the iconic zebra.

The collection is made from 100% organic GOTS certified cotton and is all produced in Portugal. The shapes are simple and above all wearable making them the perfect wardrobe staple for your little one.

Head on over to the Walnut & Walrus website to snap up some of the range and to also check out their AMAZING collection of art prints.

Minouche AW17

Get ready to fall head over heels in love with the beautiful new range from Minouche. Mixing European vintage style with modern detailing, the Autumn/Winter 17 collection will have your little ones gasping with delight...

Based in a seaside suburb of Sydney, Australia, Minouche makes simple and lovely clothing that is sure to be treasured by babies and little girls alike. Simple but impeccably made, Monouche styles are perfect for any occasion, be it the ballet or a backyard playdate. "Ethically made by a small and talented group of seamstresses in Bali, the designs are precious but not 'precious' - designed to look right at home at either party or playground, perfectly suiting the relaxed Australian style."

Gorgeous fabrics and detailing make up this stunning new range with colours of rust, charcoal and buttermilk taking centre stage. Touches of chambray denim and pops of cornflower blue bring some fun and lightness to the range perfectly matching back with the trans-seasonal styling.

"As a mother, I know that when we shop for our little girls we like to find clothing that can be worn in more than one season - nothing worse than packing away a favourite outfit at the end of a season then getting it out a year later to find it no longer fits! So most of these pieces are not only good through Autumn and Winter, but many can be worn through Spring and Summer also."

We are hard pressed to pick our favourite styles this season as they are all so good! The full range is available to shop on the Minouche website and the best news is... they ship worldwide. In love!
