Fashionkins // Dot to Dot

I headed down to a new bi-annual kids trade show in London. Dot to Dot. Exhibiting some fantastic new brands launching their first ranges this year, as well as some familiar faces. It would seem AW15 will be full of colour, imagination, beautiful shapes…. and Pom Poms look here to stay.

Some exciting new brands to look out for 2015.

Urban Merino. A fellow denim obsessive, striving to bring a capsule collection of basics. The raglan sleeve colour ways of grey with pops of purple, orange really stood out to me. The quality and finish of the premium fabric used is something else.

A Mini Penny. An expansion of A Weathered Penny; jewellery for us Mumma’s you can now treat your Babiekin’s to some super cute pom pom rings, Unicorns and Ballerina pendants.

Milk Inc. The fluidity and purity of these sophisticated Tee’s is like nothing I’ve ever experienced. Using an innovative process with milk fabrics, the brainchild’s behind this new brand of children’s wear really know what they’re doing. One to definitely get excited about.

Holly Hastie. A finalist for the Rising Star Award at Bubble London next week. This is a brand tipped for big things. Inspired by her daughters love of classic children’s films, and whimsical imagination. Think long flowing cloaks, beautiful quirky dresses with classic silhouettes and luxurious textures.

Young Double. A brand new child’s clothing range of quirky screen printed handmade dolls of Naked Lunge fame. Mixing up textures, shapes and movement to create fun sweaters and tee’s.

Dandy Star are taking their inspiration from Space with striking star prints and Sci-Fi references across bold metallic’s, sleepwear and accessories.  I totally have my eye on Loud Apparel’s Jeremy Scott inspired snap back. Continuing their trademark use of edgy textures and bold lines. Tootsa MacGinty have some done amazing things with plaid, cute dresses, detailed lining. As well as mixing up animal print with pops of colour. A range with huge personality.

Milk and Biscuits had me hook line and sinker with a particularly stunning line of beautiful dresses, knitwear and jackets; an incredibly cohesive colour pallet. Key pieces with great versatility.

Featurekins// J. Crew X American Museum of Natural History

I am thrilled to share with you crewcuts latest t-shirt collaboration with the American Museum of Natural History! J. Crew was given special and never before allowed access to the New York institution’s archives for one-of-a-kind t-shirt designs that take your little scientist on a journey through the Akeley Hall of African Mammals, Hall of Saurischian Dinosaurs, Rose Center for Earth and Space, and Morgan Memorial Hall of Gems. These tees are so fun and engaging they just may inspire you and your little ones to explore the Museum yourself!

Jenny Cooper, crewcuts designer
“We were so excited to have special access to the American Museum of Natural History’s back rooms, archives and scholars to help us design the tees. Each tee was vetted by the respective experts in the Museum and we felt like we were learning as we went. It was an honor to be the first brand able to go through these historic archives for inspiration for the tees.”

Sharon Stulberg, Senior Director Business Development of the Museum
“We are very happy to announce this project and to bring this unique collection of children’s t-shirts to both J.Crew’s and the Museum’s young fans. Inspired by science and the Museum’s iconic halls and archives, the crewcuts design team created fun and engaging t-shirts highlighting images and facts from our library and our exhibits. The content and the images were reviewed by Museum curators. We hope that these great t-shirts will be a source of pride and inspiration for the young scientists who wear them.”

To celebrate the collaboration of crewcuts and The American Museum of Natural History, the Museum invited the crewcuts designers and their kids to the Upper West Side landmark for a special before-hours visit. On their must-see list: a giant blue whale, the super sparkly Hall of Gems, and T. rex…
