IKKS JUNIOR x ARMOR LUX – A Breton Stripe Extravaganza

Got your attention now, didn’t I? If you’re anything like me, nothing gets your fashion heart racing faster than a Breton stripe. A France Fashion Fanatic at heart, I could wear a Breton stripe all day, every day, any day, and I’ll be damned if my kids don’t have a stripe here and a stripe there tucked into their wardrobe. Armor Lux has this maritime themed Breton stripe thing down to a t, and when IKKS approached them for a collaboration, kids spring summer 2016 fashion just got a whole more interesting. Fusing Armor Lux’s nautical inspiration with IKKS’ French rock-vibe created a kick ass IKKS Junior x Armor Lux Collection, almost like Brigitte Bardot and Serge Gainsbourgh had a Saint Tropez love child. Reds, whites and blues, a Breton stripe meets a touch of graphic design… Spring, we’re longing for you! IKKS Junior x Armor Lux collection – available now in IKKS stores and on http://www.ikks.com.    

Marmalade Sky

Instagram is swoon worthy, time consuming and oh so addictive, but above all, it is a true treasure trove for discovering new brands. Case in point: Marmalade Sky! I recently stumbled across this kids fashion brand while scrolling through my Instagram feed one lunch break, and the Milk Print Skinny Leg Harem pants kept my index finger hanging mid air, my breath gasping and my eyes glistening with excitement! I needed to know more, and I needed to know asap! A quick study session later taught me that Marmalade Sky is the result of a cool mum’s creativity and keen eye for design! Keen but unable to find cool, quirky but above all gender neutral clothes for her son, womenswear designer Sarah Ives took matters into her own hands (I love a mum like that!) and started creating her own pieces for him. Not content with just designing the pieces, she went a step further and printed her own fabric as well. Stylish babies always get noticed by fellow mums, and soon one thing led …

Family Fun

When the invitation for the ZulupaPUWA 10 year birthday party came galloping into my mailbox, it was quickly decided that we would make it a family day at the the zoo. End of summer, an all access pass at the zoo, a gorgeous sunlit day, two happy children and a Mr B taking a day off work, all the ingredients were there for an amazing family day. Before and after the new collection presentation (which, buy the way is an absolute stunner, a real sartorial fest for stylish kids), the kids roamed, discovered and conquered the animal kingdom of Planckendael, and Mr B and I enjoyed every minute of it!

Diapers and Milk and a brand new hotspot

Looking for the perfect marble printed tees and leggings for my little ones (Obsessed? Me?) , I stumbled across Diapers and Milk on Studio Aimée and I was sold! In an instant, hook, line and sinker! What may look like an ordinary collection of leggings to an outstander, is actually my idea of sartorial heaven for my mini me’s! What may look like just a collection of basic leggings is in fact the brainchild of Leia Sfez (check this übercool mom’s Instagram, it’s envy-enducing and inspiring at the same time!), and draws from her personal style. Minimalist, monochrome and architectural are key words,  which make that these, mainly minimalistic black and white are timeless, priceless and full of style. All Diapers and Milk pieces are made out of organic cotton and printed with non-toxic ink,  The combination possibilities are endless,  and as Leia does not follow the season but updates her collection continuously, so are the shopping possibilities! And when Leia does collaborations, so does them right! A brainstorming session with Veja led to these …
