Roxzann Weston stylist and co founder of the blog MTC –Talks to Junior Style about her favorite British children’s designers.
The children’s uber cool corner of the fashion industry I felt had always predominately been lead by the Scandinavians ….. Until now! I believe the Brits are upping the fashion factor steaks and making a cool comeback into the children’s fashion world with original authentic bold designs which are sure to excite the fashion forward parent. Here below are my favorite A/W13 collections from British children’s wear designers…
Marmalade & Mash is the brainchild of LCF graduate Naomi Langford Archer who wanted to create a capsule collection reflecting nostalgic quintessential British style in her quirky but comfy fun timeless designs. The A/W 13 collection has a 1970’s retro styled theme with peter pan collars, straight lines and classic silhouettes.
Ruff and Huddle’s debut A/W 13 – Tattoo print inspired collection for the trend hunting parent, is aimed at children 2-7yrs and consists of cool original street wear styles, carefully scaled down for fearless little individual. The clothing design duo James Sucking and partner Lucy both work closely with a portfolio of artists to keep their designs fresh and authentic.
La Loi children’s wear label is a new unisex clothing line designed, printed and manufactured all in the UK. La Loi Label owner Kate Law has a strong background in editorial design. The Art Director drew inspiration from when her boys attended a Circus school where they wore patterned leggings. Kate quickly noticed a gap in the kids market and set out to create cool comfortable fun unisex legging’s for all. The quirky bold coloured graphic print leggings look great on both boys and girls, under shorts, ripped jeans or simply alone teamed with a t-shirt, converse or mini Dr Martin boots.
