Last weekend Babyology dropped in on the biggest and best kids trade show, Bubble London! With more than two-hundred-and-fifty of the hottest fashion, footwear, accessories and interior collections on show from the world’s freshest design talent, this was Bubble London’s most inspiring Autumn/Winter show yet. Babyology’s London correspondent Rachael Clark did a stellar job of covering the show and here’s what she found.
Tulip & Nettle (top and below) showcased its first ‘luxe’ line. All made in England, the vintage style collection features silks, chiffons, velvets and sheepskin as well as gorgeous handknitted jumpers based on vintage knitting patterns.
Mother As Daughter is a new range of matching outfits for mums and daughters. Babyology loved the cute cat print dresses and denim smocks with ruffle necks in the collection. This label is so new, there’s no website yet.
Mischka Aoki from Western Australia delivered a range of stunning princess-like creations. Designed for the fashionista in mind and with the tagline ‘couture for children’, these are never going to be outfits for a run in the park but for a special event, your little princess will be the belle of the ball in one of these hand finished pieces.
Grubbies (above and below) designs perfect denim dungarees for children 0-5. A brand designed and manufactured in the UK, Grubbies features a retro-based collection of denim dungarees in unisex and boys’ fits as well as a baby version and a girl’s pinafore dress.
Team these with their basic tees and one of their kerchiefs designed by children’s book illustrator Marion Lindsay and we bet that your little one will look just like those 70s baby pictures of you! Suzi says they remind her of her old Grasshoppers from way back when! So vintage – so cute.
New childrenswear label Ava & Luc showcased eco-dyed, ethically made, organic clothing in funky bright prints.
Babatude (above and below) designs beautiful, luxury clothes and accessories for ‘Babies with Attitude’! Each piece is individually handmade using beautifully soft cashmere and Merino wool with great care to detail and quality. The collection features unisex wool clothing handmade in Nepal and cashmere jumpers, playsuits, babygrows, blankets, coats and hats.
