the little quote jar
You may wonder why am I going to fairs like Playtime Tokyo - after all I am not running a business related to kids fashion... Well, here are a couple of reasons:
- I am looking for trends and inspiration. Trend Spaces at Playtime never fail to inspire me.
- I am creating party decoration for kids, and I like to understand where kids fashion goes.
- I am looking for contacts and meeting up with like-minded people or small business owners.
- I am naturally curious and I love sharing with others new finds & exceptional people!
Here below are a few of my (new and old) favorites, at least the ones I could snap a (good!) photo of. As I mentioned in my post yesterday, I will continue to share some of my favs later in March after I have received all the materials from the different brands.
#TimeCapsules & Little Quote Jar by Anouk Van Der El
The Little Quote Jar is also a brillant idea: can't remember something funny that your 4-year-old said the other day? Just grab a pencil and memo, write it down and insert it in the jar. You can open it at the end of the year and have a good laugh together - and maybe make a book of it?

#nunu by Miki Nuiya
Winner of the magazine Milk's coup de coeur award this season, nunu's collection presents timeless pieces with a distinctive flair and an attention to details, simply adorable. And made in Japan.
#Sophia203 by Sophia Edstrand
I have been following Sophia's Instagram feed since last year, which is just full of photos ofher astonishing hand-embroidered accessories + inspirational photos. The color combos, the themes and the materials Sophia is using for her collections give you a Sense of Wonder, which is the name of her first line for little girls that was presented at Playtime. Sparkling hair accessories, elegant belts, pretty bracelets, fabulous brooches... in the brand's most iconic designs: butterflies, stars, hearts, clouds or angel wings. Your turn to borrow your daughter's accessories!
the butterfly brooch that stole my heart...
#Le Petit Lucas du Tertre by Marie Lucas & Clemence du Tertre
If I liked their Spring/Summer 2014 collection last August for the prints & colours, I just LOVED this winter collection. The mix & match of stripes with their gorgeous jacquards, the funny details such as the dressed up doggy seen in the photo below... Lucky me to have a daughter to spoil next winter!
