November's best styles, looks and launches for little ones
Absolutely Mama rounds up the best kids fashion for November…
Spanish brand Maison Mangostan is founded by a family with a long tradition in shoemaking. Merging beautiful craftsmanship with new eco-friendly techniques, their colourful and fun footwear is a lesson in imaginative design.
STELLA MCCARTNEY KIDS
Always with a eco message, Stella McCartney’s new season collection for kids focuses on the important topic of deforestation. It aims to inspire kids to take care of our woodlands with the slogan ‘Plant for the Planet’.
WEEKEND HOUSE KIDS
Relatively new on the scene, the collection from Weekend House Kids is full of fun doodle prints. The Barcelona-based brand is eco-friendly too and is committed to a responsible environmental manufacturing approach.
KIMBA KIDS X ALEXANDALEXA
The new Kimba Kids childrenswear collection from singer and TV personality Kimberley Walsh will launch exclusively at Alex and Alexa this autumn. We love the bright colours and gender-neutral designs.
REIMA X THE MOOMINS
Mini fans of the much-loved Finnish storybook characters will love the new Reima X The Moomins collaboration. As practical as it is cute, the collection includes jackets, wellies and lots of great jersey pieces – designed for real-life adventures.
A socially responsible kids fashion brand promoting kindness
Seeing their children demonstrate unpromoted acts of kindness inspired friends Lucie and Charlie to spread the love a little further. The two Brighton and Hove-based mamas founded The Kindness Co-op last year, a socially responsible brand that promotes kindness to each other and to the planet.
The current collection of tees, sweatshirts, and accessories for little ones and grown-ups is made from eco-friendly fabrics, such as organic cotton. Everything is sourced from ethical suppliers and the packaging is recyclable too. The design duo also donates a portion of their profits to YoungMinds, the UK’s leading charity championing the mental health and of children and young people.
Emblazoned with messages to remind us that being kind is cool, we love the idea that the collection will inspire conversations about helping others and emotional wellbeing.
