Winter is all about cozy knits that can take you from jaunts in Brooklyn to strolls around the neighborhood. For Love and Lemons has the ultimate collection of cozy sweaters and knit pieces that are simple and gorgeous – perfection if you ask me. The Solstice Backless Sweater has stolen my heart. Part of their Knitz Collection, it’s truly the most luxurious sweater I own. It can be dressed down with denim or paired with a flowy frock for a more dressed up look..date night anyone? Cheers to cozy days and feeling great!
Lucky Boy Sunday is happy to present a new season – “Winter 14”
Lucky Boy Sunday is introducing some new secret friends, “Bad Eye Lily”, “Uffie doll” and little “Mause doll”.
“Bad Eye Lilly” got some ink in her eye and it turned bad, “Uffie doll” sometimes has very scary dreams, “Mause doll” is overwhelmed by his own cuteness. They also have some great new pillow cases – “Lucky pillow case” in 3 different color combinations and a very nice “Nulle pillow case”
Lucky Boy Sunday is a brand of modern luxury knitted art toys and soft furnishings for the home, inspired by an artistic take on the world of children. The brand’s Danish designers, Camilla Koerschen and Camilla Ebdrup, are highly creative textile designers with backgrounds in fashion and art, who founded their studio in 2007.
Their work magically straddles the worlds of adults and children, the everyday and the unusual, bringing a poetic, artistic sensibility to both the living room and the children’s room.
All Lucky Boy Sunday’s knitted designs are manufactured in Bolivia, where alpaca have been bred for their precious wool for centuries. All items are knitted in cooperatives working under the fair trade principle, using only the highest grade wool, which is as valuable and as soft as cashmere. Their designs are made to both withstand the rigors of child’s play and look stunning in an adult’s environment.
Quality and function, originality and familiarity, poetry and playfulness are all in harmony in the work of this exceptional brand. Lucky Boy Sunday’s heirloom-quality designs have graced in many international magazines and are sold in luxury design shops and the hippest children’s concept stores from Copenhagen to Paris, Tokyo to New York, who are charmed by Camilla and Camilla’s unique, artistic take on the world.
I had the pleasure of visiting the Wovenplay studio and shop in Brooklyn this summer and chatting with the designer, Katherine Edmonds. The space was everything I had envisioned it would be. The loft-like space was filled with clean natural light; and concrete floors and bare walls beautifully contrasted the whimsical and theatrical pieces that Wovenplay is known for. The merchandise is displayed towards the front of the space with a workspace towards the back. The workspace is visible to visitors and shoppers, which creates an inclusive and inviting creative energy. It was lovely to catch up with Katherine and inquire about the new developments at Wovenplay.
What is new since we last chatted with you for Babiekins Magazine’s second print issue?
We have just finished our Spring’15 collection which was inspired by the beaches and the landscape of the Mediterranean.
Are there any new designs that you are excited about? What colors and details will we see in the new Wovenplay collection?
We have designed several new exciting prints, and two new swimsuits including a ruffled Lola bikini and a boy’s swim trunk.
Which Wovenplay pieces would you say are the most popular?
The striped Lola Suits, Featherbands and Jess Brown/Wovenplay dolls.
I loved the creative vibe I felt in your Brooklyn space. It was invigorating to see your team at work. The manner in which the pieces are merchandised is so fun and aesthetically fitting for the brand. What do you envision for this space?
We love to work in this quiet space with the little studio shop in the front for people to come in and shop or chat with us about what we’re doing at the moment.
Why did you choose to set up shop in Brooklyn?
Brooklyn is full of creative energy and many entrepreneurs working in artistic fields and making things by hand. Our street is near the river and very peaceful.
Are there any current trends, artists, musicians or designers that you are feeling inspired by at the moment?
I recently visited the Dia in Beacon, NY and loved seeing the sculptural works of Carl Andre and the color-rich and geometric abstractions of Blinky Palermo.
What can we find you doing when you’re not at the studio or dreaming up new designs for Wovenplay?
I enjoy spending time and having fun with my son and my good friends, listening to live music, visiting antique markets and museums, taking road trips to cool old towns, seeing stars and planets at observatories and camping and cooking.
The Wovenplay studio and shop is located at 190 West Street in Brooklyn, NY. Visitors and shoppers may stop in on Mondays through Fridays between the hours of 12PM and 5PM and Weekends by appointment.

Coffee, hot chocolates and Krispy Kreme — breakfast of champions! Our Sundays are rarely planed they are normally chilled out with a whatever goes vibe, but this Sunday we made a plan to be out of the house by 9.00 am for a skate session and to have some fun photographing a street wear label, Few And Far Collective.
Few And Far is an independently owned Australian based collective who focus on delivering quality and limited edition artworks, garments and collectables. Born from a love of art and the tattoo industry, Few And Far inspire to be a little more than just your average brand. Few And Far collaborate with their favorite artist worldwide now offering one off pieces for the minis with their kid collection, which you will find limited addition pieces like the Eagle Emblem sweater you see Bo and Indy wearing.
