Lanvin & Alber Elbaz Create A Dress for Minnie Mouse - Alber Elbaz has created a custom-made Lanvin dress for Disney’s Minnie Mouse to celebrate the 20th anniversary of Disneyland Paris. Elbaz’s inspiration stems from Minnie’s love of colours, jewelry and everything sparkly. In his opinion, Minnie is a true fashionista!
For Mr. Elbaz this project represents a sort-of “fantasy-meets-reality” that allowed child-like naivety and purity into his work instead of the usual “glossy” fashion stuff.
The final product, a lovely electric-blue evening gown decorated with all sorts of sparkling tidbits and topped off with a ruby red crown; absolutely fitting to Minnie’s happy personality.
For Minnie and Alber Elbaz, dreams really do come true!
Loud Apparel Spring/Summer 2013 Collection - Minimal, edgy and statement-making; Loud Apparel’s childrenswear combines the nonchalant look of London with a high-fashion attitude stemming from Italy. Although geometrical and monochromatic are not words usually applied when describing childrenswear, somehow they have weaved their way into Loud Apparel’s vocabulary pairing themselves with words such as playful and imaginative.
From basic graphic tees with silly slogans to a stunning hole-punched leather jacket, Loud Apparel has your kids covered and looking awesome this spring.
Munster Kids Spring/Summer 2013 Collection - Sydney based kidswear label, Munster Kids, has once again managed to create a great range of boys, girls and baby wear that feeds off the devious lil monsters that live in each kid.
Bold patterns and nature-themed flowy tees take the cake this season for the lil misses. We specially like the butterfly print which is multiple times throughout the collection on shorts, tees, swimwear, pants, etc.
On the boys side, the range is teeming with flashy Aztec-esque prints, graphics and colours. Sandy yellows, orangy-reds, teal blues and jungle greens make up the majority of the range; while pyramids, animals, bugs and skulls are prominently featured as graphics.
Air Jordan Valentine’s Day GS Specials - This February 14th, be prepared to be confounded by the paradox of choice as Jordan has released a few epic pairs of Valentine’s Day inspired GS sneakers for the lil love bunnies.
The Air Jordan V Retro GS, the Air Jordan 1 Mid GS and the Air Jordan 1 Mid Premium GS have been painted in whites, reds and ion pink to celebrate the Hallmark holiday.
We (heart) seeing the ‘For the Love of the Game’ basketball logo embroidered on the heel of the V’s and the Premium’s, a now tradition on GS-sized Valentine’s Day sneakers.
Slip a pair of these matchmakers on your kid’s feet and watch how quick his/her Valentine’s card mailbox fills up with love notes from secret admirers.
Little Marc Jacobs Fall/Winter 2013 - Our good friends over at Little Marc Jacob’s have sent us a preview of the Fall/Winter 2013 LMJ Collection. Although the girls stuff is quite cute, especially the absolutely perfect red faux-fur trimmings and the red zip boots, we are particularly wowed by LMJ’s on-point boyswear.
The boys red and beige Letterman jacket, as well as the leather Bomber jacket are definitely the stand out pieces for FW13. Honorable mentions go to the youthful blue party suit, the funny snarling bear graphic tee and the tailored peacoat. All pretty spiffy stuff.
9-Year-Old Rapper Lil Poopy - Controversial young rapper, Lil Poopy, is a 9 year old Bostonian with a “growing” talent. Although we believe he might be getting himself in a lil too deep for his age, Luie Rivera Jr. is playing the “Lil Poopy” role pretty well. He’s got the cars, the big booty babes and we dare say, a kinda catchy hook.
Lil Poopy’s producer stated in a interview with the Boston Herald that “the kid’s got everything: the look, the swagger, the lyrics, the delivery”, and with more than 20,000 views on his Youtube videos and 10,000 downloads on his mixtape, we are starting to believe him.
To boot, Lil Poopy was featured prominently in a video with French Montana, Diddy and Rick Ross, and he’s already performed with other rap stars including Waka Flocka Flame, Meek Mill and Wale.
Kumeko “Snug” Chair - The design team at Kumeko have created a beanbag chair/cushion/blanket “hybrid” developed for relaxing in comfortably. The Snug consists of a soft cushion surrounded by a cozy shell. The shell envelops the user in a specially developed material that increases comfort and retains heat.
We can image that the Snug would be the ideal personal space for young readers and kids that like to have a cool spot so they can be alone, think and be creative.
The price varies with the size of the Snug. Visit kumeko.com for more info and to purchase the soft furnishing.
