Here’s a range of children’s couture that really makes me want to pack everything up and move the family to an Austrian alpine farmhouse, but since that doesn’t seem likely, I’ll content myself in knowing that great style looks great everywhere.
There’s more than a dash of fairytale wonder in this amazing line of children’s clothing from Austrian label Hilda Henri. And although it was visions of children in the mountains, and Snow White and Little Red Riding Hood that made my heart quicken when I first saw them, this clothing would be just as at home in a bustling city as it is in the snowy Austrian woods.
I’ll admit it, I’m a sucker for a child in a coat. There’s something so timelessly elegant about a good coat, but what I love about Hilda Henri is that the timeless elegance has been perfectly combined with such modern pops of colour (like in the dresses above). The genius of Hilda Henri is in the way she has managed to revive traditional Austrian costumes but reinterpret them in keeping with modern style. What’s more, the fun pieces like headbands and crowns add a touch of dress up to everyday clothing, in a way that children are sure to love.
The Hilda Henri range is a sustainable label which uses traditional Austrian techniques and locally grown wool in all its clothing. The felted wool provides garments that regulate temperature well and are durable as well as water resistant.
