Misha Lulu's Quirky Nautical Looks For Summer 2013

By Jeanne Omlor from Bellissima Kids

Calling all adventurers! Misha Lulu's Spring/ Summer 2013 collection harkens the kiddie inner explorer, playing with fantastic nautical prints and accessories...all with a sweet vintage nod. 

This season is very strong, as all of their seasons and we absolutely love their lookbook; the simplicity really allows the children's natural charm to really shine

Yes, we'd definitely want to join them on their adventures!

New Designers

Recognised as a source of inspiration, fresh talent and new ideas, New Designers has launched the careers of thousands of the UK’s design graduates as they emerge from the UK’s highly regarded design courses at universities and colleges.

We paid a visit to this year's event and here’s what caught our eye:

Made of plywood, the whole rocker is held together by slot in joints, without glue or screws.
The versatile design allows you to take the rocker apart for flat packed storage of for transferring it to the next user when your child has grown out of it.
