Seasonal styles, gift ideas and practical kit for little ones
Protect little clothes from little cooks with this wipe-clean children’s apron from none other than the mighty Tate. It features a cute Moomins print officially sanctioned by the estate of the work’s creator, Tove Jansson, and available in a striking shade of Scandinavian red. It’s the ideal antidote to culinary chaos. £12.50;
British brand Smalls makes super-soft merino essentials, for children, that can be worn year-round. Expert craftsmanship ensures years of wear, so pieces can be handed down to siblings. And when they finally reach the end of their life cycle? They’re completely biodegradable.
Bundle of joy
Keep tiny tots extra cosy this winter with this muslin swaddle, ethically made in India in the softest cotton ever. Baby’s head fits snugly in the pocket, which comes adorned with a cute tassel. We adore the ‘nimbus cloud’ hue (pictured).
MAMAS & PAPAS
The brand have really upped their game in the style stakes lately, producing on-point pieces each season. As the weather turns nippier, we’re loving this cute, gender-neutral hat and mitten set in a plush blue with luxuriously soft faux-fur lining and trim.
Made With Love
Inspired by uniqueness, kindness and love, Organic Zoo’s latest collection is its boldest yet. Slogan tops proclaim the mantra “kindness is my superpower” in the season’s most desirable colour ways of clay, rust and spice, with contrasting prints in a delicate sage grey.
LIBERTY OF LONDON
Mixing grown-up elegance with childish fancy, these bibs are adorned with prints of dinosaurs frolicking among foliage. They’re crafted from absorbent Liberty lawn cotton and fasten with a simple snapper – they’re as practical as they are pretty. £15;
VILD HOUSE OF LITTLE
We’re loving this new limited-edition capsule collection, from Swedish brand Vild, which features luxe streetwear for kids in a vibrant “night forest” print. Who knew hoot-owls and bomber jackets would make perfect style bedfellows?
Dress to Impress
An early one for the Christmas gift list? We love the innocence of this 2D wood-and-felt threading kit, from toy-masters Djeco, which lets littles play dress-up while introducing them to a key crafting technique. £13.45;
