Last weekend I attended Playtime New York, the international trade show devoted to childrenswear. I had a little assistant, my daughter Miette helping me. It was so nice to get a fashion perspective from a 6 year old. As a sponsor of Playtime we had limited edition postcards (seen in the middle photo above) featuring artists from our Small Draw coloring pages made for all the attendees of Playtime.
I will post over the next couple of days my favorite designers, new and old, from the show.
Bakker Made with Love -A French label designed by couple David and Valerie Bakker, who reside in Indonesia and who are clearly influenced by their travels. It can be seen in the colorful handmade fabrics in tribal prints that adorn rompers, bags, bibs, swim trunks and dresses. Along with a this collection are bright beautiful basics like jeans, tees and outerwear.
Supereditions- A Parisian publishing house making books with Sandra Lanilis’ funny text with titles like, The Magic Sausage and Where do Monsters and Spiders hide when they are scared with a blank pages where your child can illustrate the story.
Coral & Tusk- Pillows, tee shirts, onesies, stationary and art prints adorned with embroidered images created by Stephanie Housley. I loved the kids button down shirts and dresses in a beautiful blue fish print as well as the award brooches and baby booties embroidered with bears and ducks.
Easy Peasy- A French brand of beautiful leather baby and toddler shoes.A Classic collection of mary janes and lace up soft oxfords as well as booties with mouse and owl faces, colorful peace signs and hearts.
