INDIKIDUAL AW14 :: 1on1 with SYREETA






I had the fun chance to ask Syreeta from Indikidual some questions about her brand, INDIKIDUAL, and will share this with you now as I am presenting the AW14 Collection, which is organic, colourful, quirky and all things INDIKIDUAL. Congratulations with yet another fabulous collection: we are in love with the shade of blue, the scarf and beanies,  the hole punch print, the washi tape face and the crafty zig zag’s and of course, the crayons! INDIKIDUAL is made for fun kids, who knows how to play and get creative. 
Our little talk follows below the AW images:: 

































      What is it that inspire your cute and quirky prints? [...Bananas. Straws. Zigzag. Maracas...]  
           The prints are inspired by my daughter Minnie, 
           she loves drawing and we spend a lot of tie laying on the floor with a big doodle pad. 
           She always wanted me to draw bananas and thats where the banana pint came from, 
           since then she has been fascinated by Jelly fish and we thought it would be funny if they could shake maracas!  I love drawing things that kids love but are not necessarily so obvious,
like the straws, I'm sure all kids love straws!     

What is your favourite part of the whole production process?   The designing, I love coming up with new ideas for prints and working on the colour pallets. We have a brand who keep copying our designs and I just don't get it, why would you want to miss out on the best part of the job?!?

Can you share your 3 most favourite prints/items from your previous collections?  It has to be the banana jumpsuit from the first collection, as soon as I saw the sample I thought people are going to ether love this or hate it! I love our socks form the new collection, they are designed to be worn odd like Pippi Longstocking. And last but not least it has to be the pom pom print dress, Its Minnies favourite at the moment, she loves the big pockets for keeping all her treasures in

Your latest season will be in store soon: When?  It will be instore in the beginning of August, we are working hard to get it sent out to all the shops as we speak!

Anything secrets about AW14 that you want to reveal now?   We have a great collaboration with Bobby Dazzler dolls, Look out for Ron, Bruno, Tarquin and Mike, they are awesome!

LOUD APPAREL AW14

Loud Apparel is a UK designed label, and it is the epitome of cool.
I love how this label allows kids to be creative and comfortable and not afraid of using patterns and bold prints.
I am in love with their AW14! The fabrics, the cuts, the prints... Ah, I could put my kids in it all! I love a brave label, that are not afraid of doing the opposite or everyone else: instead of playing it safe: they take risks and end up with statement piece like these ones. The big and bold brush print is flawless, the scribble monster talks volumes to anyone who lived through the late 80's early 90's (Is love!) and black statement pieces sums this up to perfection. Its the ultimate street-style for kids.

Loud apparel AW14/15 definitely one to watch.

NOSWEET KIDS MEETS RETRO





We travelled in time and met corduroy and patterns, colours and prints and we had such a fun and colourful day:
We were originally going to this amazing Drive-In movie theatre and diner, but the diner was closed until dark, and so the pictures of my very active little kids didn't get too awesome: However: I did get this snap of Mr C and we also went on another adventure: so all is well that ends fabulously! 
We took a look at the "top 10 Sydney playgrounds" and went to a little place called Lizard Log close to Blacktown. It was heaven! What a clean and fabulous playground! Beyond thrilled and amazed at once!  
Don't you love it when you have a plan that fails and something e v e n better pops up instead? 
It is my favourite thing!!

A DAY AT MILK BEACH :: I DIG DENIM SS14 & MAA SHOES AW14 :: BABIEKINS REPOST



For this shoot I mixed I Dig Denims incredible SS14 collection with shoes from MAÁ’s much anticipated AW14 collection. I love how effortlessly cool the kids look in the perfect denim jeans and soft cotton top’s /cotton dress and with shoes you can see from miles away. Nothing else is needed for these looks, but 3 pieces of clothing and 2 pairs of shoes.
(…And of course a beautiful Sydney beach, incredible winter weather and cupcakes with whipped cream)

You can read more about I Dig Denim and MAÁ shoes right here on my blog, just check the label with their names:

BONDI BEACH WINTER MAGIC // MINTI AW14 MEETS I DIG DENIM SS14




Cold windy wet weather does not stop us anymore: we have gumboots and super cool and warm coats:: Beach in 14 degrees? Why not?
We were lovingly greeted by a fabulous little Chihuahua named Mack, and Miss W fell in love.
They cuddled and kissed and became total besties. We took a walk up to the building we lived when Mr C was born: and on the first floor is now a Ben and Jerry's! Fabulous! Munch munch!
Then we checked out the graffiti, the skatepark, the beach and played in the sand for a long time, before heading back home. 
It was a wonderful lille outing on one of the coldest winter days Sydney has had to offer this year. 
Splendid!
