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.

Corby Tindersticks will be adding some new animal friends to their quirky range of instantly recognisable lifestyle products.
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.
Lapin & Me will be introducing some exciting new colourways, and the much loved woodland doll; will soon also available as a night light. She looks amazing!
Not that I’m wishing the summer away… but AW15 excites me!
