Playtime Tokyo 28-30 August 2012 – a handful of our favourites!


It was Tokyo’s turn to host Playtime in August, click through for a quick recap of a few of our favourites!

Kick starting Playtime Tokyo could well be one of my favourite exhibitors, Boys and Girls. An organic cotton children’s clothing collection full of all things bright, bold and above all else, fun – just how kids like it.

Room Seven have some of the most delightful and charismatic bedding and decor items I’ve seen in a long time. Vintage style fabrics blended beautifully and embellished with embroidery, appliqué and a ruffle here and there – exquisite!

For those that love classic, timeless styles, Italian label Kid’s Company (pictured above and below) is spot on for clothing that is refined, simple and utterly beautiful. Quality fabrics and stunning tailoring make these pieces the ultimate children’s wardrobe staples.

A Babyology favourite, Kidsonroof make the most amazing things from cardboard – their collection has grown substantially in past years with the introduction of deer, fox, cubby houses, doll houses and this magnificent Totem Tree Of Life, pictured below.

Minibanda have children aged up to eighteen months covered in fun all American-style baseball jackets and outfits in a popular palette of navy, grey and red. Little girls can be rugged up warm in teeny tiny chunky knit cardigans and the smallest of denim jeggings, just like the big girls!

Maternity label Amoralia has nightwear, swimwear and lingerie designed for the ever changing, pregnant body. Expectant mum’s needs are met with everything from everyday basics to something a little more fancy available.

Finally, my second favourite is Los Angeles-based Anthem Of The Ants, a collection for little girls that has a distinct European flavour with a quirky edge that I adore. Dresses made from delicious striped or plain fabric with the addition of sweet ruffles and feathery soft collars are bound to be loved by little lasses!
