Oh So Lovely


What’s not to love about Hucklebones? Combining fantastic quality and great design, every item has its own charming style.

So while you pack your bags for that long awaited holiday, the Brit label has thought about everything you need for little girls: sunshine yellow sleeveless dresses for daydreams and sipping lemonade and wide legged shorts or rompers for garden walks.

As always the collection is designed in London and is ethically manufactured within the E.U.

Don't miss Hucklebones at Bubble London 20 & 21 June 2010!

Out of Africa



In case you don’t know, African-inspired pieces are going to be huge this Summer.
French brand, Ma Petite Personne has nailed the trend with stunning jackets, tops and bags for kids up to 8 years old.

Stylish, colourful, playful and as comfortable for children as it is convenient for parents, we also love the fact that designer Celeste Durry pays special attention to little boys.

Little Lamb



“Handmade with love”, Little Lamb is a new jewellery line for babies, mums and kids. The signature range has been developed around five baby animal silhouettes attached to bangles, bracelets and neckpieces.
 


Australian designer Caitlin Boyce likes to say of her pieces “ they will last a lifetime, evolving from something a little girl will love into something that the woman that girl becomes will treasure forever”.


At the moment, Little Lamb is only being sold through various high-end baby and childrenswear stores across Australia, but hopefully not for too long!

A Must-See

We always keep an eye on Famille Summerbelle, simply because their decorative items (cushions, prints or family trees) perfectly fit in a child’s room.





Last year, the family-run business launched gorgeous paper cut maps of London, Paris and New York.




Designer Julie Marabelle just posted this amazing video of her work on the Big Apple one and it is definitely worth watching!
