With collections truly unique to mainstream fashion, designers Julia Gaydina and Dinie van den Heuvel are not afraid of “not fitting in.” Infantium Victoria is inspired by the mission to create a ‘new dimension’ in the kid’s fashion world, Julia and Dinie base their designs around the idea that children’s clothing should be sophisticated yet practical and functional yet elegant.
From the seashore head-first right into the ocean – ‘Emulsion’ the new collection, stands for the beauty and the vulnerability of our seas. The collection touches on environmental issues and aims to create awareness of the importance of protecting our planet and its oceans. The key motive of ‘Emulsion’ is a hand-drawn oil rig created by Mauritz, the son of Infantium Victoria co-owner Dinie van den Heuvel. By creating a creative link between the beauty of sea life and the dangers posed to it by the human quest for growth we want to deliver a cause for thought.
‘Emulsion’ introduces a varied collection of summer clothes from comfy coral-colored knit fabrics and broadly tailored light summer dresses in lush black and marine blue to chic black cardigans and batik-style inspired sunset-into-the-ocean dyed t-shirts, shorts and skirts.
Originally derived from the generally unwanted rendezvous of water and oil, the collection title ‘Emulsion’ further stands for Infantium Victoria’s unusual approach of mixing things that normally don’t coalesce, while finding beauty in exact those unusual mixtures. Whether it is water and oil, beauty and destruction, kid’s wear and goth styles, or sustainable fashion and commercial success – at Infantium Victoria we simply like to do things differently.
Infantium Victoria is designed in Belgium and made in Europe (Germany and Portugal) and there are a few items per collection sourced in India. Every piece in the collection is handmade and created using certified organic materials and produced in an ethical, environmentally friendly manner. Proudly carrying the PETA-approved vegan symbol, the brand promise to only deliver animal-friendly products, not containing any leather, fur, skin or wool.
