My time at Bubble London
Clothes, shoes, accessories, toys and lifestyle accessories! It was a hectic two days at the Autumn/Winter 2011 edition of Bubble London. There were over 250 brands to cover and less than 48 hours to cover them.
One of the brands that caught my eye was the fairly young brand P’tit Chic…De Paris from France. The brand is aimed at babies from 3 months old to children up till the age of 4.
The brand was launched in January 2010 by the mother-daughter duo of Christine Michelon and Jacinthe Bruscemi. Christine Michelon is the designer of the collections, having 30 years of experience in the children’s wear market in Europe and across the world. The brand bases its design philosophy on simple colours and soft fabrics that are easy to take care of. Fabrics used in the collections include organic cotton,French printed cotton, knitwear and Oexo-Tex denim .A design motif of “a funny little cat” runs across most of their collection which also serves as their logo.
I love this shirt featuring gnomes and the like; there is nothing that stirs the human imagination more than the beings of the faerie world, a part of their “Fairy & Dwarfs” collection for 2011/2012.
Rompers and vests featuring their logo and design motif, seen across their collections.
Double-breasted knit jacket in navy …perfect for the winter, a part of their “Winter Sailors” collection featuring striped knitwear and solid knit wears in colour reminiscent of a sailor.
A little small note for all of us to remember…Summer is almost here especially with this perfect little summer shirt in 100% cotton.
Bubble London has seen the launch of many children’s wear brands over the years and this edition was no different.
Dolls and Dirt was one of the brands that launched at Bubble London. Launched by Katy Bridgewater, Dolls and Dirt embodies the edginess and funk of the new generation kids.
I love the funk this moto logo full-sleeve tee. Another plus is that it is in this fresh green shade that I absolutely adore! As you can see here, this collection holds nothing back when it comes to embellishments!
I never ever get tired of Rock & Roll t-shirts. This grey one with the metal embellishments carries a nice contrast to the black and yellow script.
We have seen a lot of tees with the tie print on it, I like this one a lot just because of the extra effort taken here to add the black sequins, and give it a nice “casual party” look .
This fun edgy t-shirt for little girls is exactly what I would have love to worn as a little girl. The t-shirt to me has the right amount of funk contrasted with a right amount of femininity for your punk rocker girl.
Moccasins in Sweden are very popular. This socks-shoe indoor footwear combo has been a mom favourite in Sweden for over so long that a staple feature of Swedish nurseries have been moccasin baskets. Moccis is the brainchild of London-based Swedish designer Anna Wetterlin and is the designer’s take on traditional Swedish moccasins. Launched in Winter 2008, Moccis are made of ecotex certified materials and have flexible leather soles that are anti-skid.The ankles have double elastic that prevents it from falling off while flexibility of the leather soles allow the muscles to develop. And for Autumn 2011 Moccis are bringing out a special edition of Wooly Moccis for feet that are always extra cold.
I guess I’ve got to stop now, or this show will just go on… until next time!
