New Collections : Having fun with Emile et Ida!

Sweatshirt Sardines

 

Sweatshirt Cheeseburger. Today, we will focus on Emile et Ida and their wonderfully fun Spring Summer collection!

But first, a few words about the brand. Created in 2010 by two tailors’ daughters, Emile et Ida is a brand not like the others. Making clothes for school does not interest them.

Making clothes in which kids can have fun at birthday parties, during the holidays, during the weekend and more generally, during happy days! Of course, you can wear their clothes for school too! 😉

Their collections are always original, playful and full of wonders. Perfect for going out or staying in! The collections are predominantly made in Portugal with certain pieces made in other European countries !

Now, about this summer collection, it is as usual super original and fun! It’s hard for us to resist the sweater with small burgers all over it. Same goes for the little baby bottles pattern or the “I’m always hungry” t-shirt. Your little ones will look so adorable you will just want to eat them.

You can also find in this new collection some extraordinary animals such as sardines with hats or hippopotamuses with bowties and headphones. But don’t forget about the cat bags or the backpacks covered with cars to complete any cool kid’s outift!

But this season is not only about original patterns. You can also find lovely simple pieces with powdered and soft pastel colours. They are ideal for a more poetic and dreamy outfit for little girls.

You will surely find a piece that you will love in this new collection from Emile et Ida just like we did! Discover the beautiful Spring / Summer Collection of Emile et Ida  at French Blossom.com !

New In: My Little Cozmo

My Little Cozmo Dress Confettis and Bloomer

Today, I am going to talk about our newest arrival for designer baby clothing: My Little Cozmo. This young Spanish brand was created in 2014 by Nuria Iracheta and is based in Barcelona.

Nuria wanted to discover more about fashion and develop a universe that would focus on little ones from 1 to 24 months. Aided by her experience of working in the fashion industry for many years, she decided to create her own baby clothes collection!

Designed to fit the modern lifestyle of energetic parents and their babies, these clothes give off a minimalist feel thanks to casual patterns and unique prints that make them ideal to complete a refreshing urban look. We like the comfortable cuts and the soft, powdered colours used by the brand for its new collection. These delicate pieces are ideal to match with many styles thanks to their simplicity. Only made with the finest cotton, these garments are dyed and washed following a manufacturing process that helps create soft and comfortable clothes for babies.

This season, My Little Cozmo treats you with beautiful leggings, dresses, bloomers and tops. In white, pink or blue, your child will be ready to spend sunny days outside! I especially like the soft pink dress covered with little black sparks for a little girl or the blue Pacman tank top, matched with the grey leggings, for a little boy. And if you want something purer, why not try the beautiful white legging and combine it with a grey blouse from Poudre Organic?

Cluse Watches: minimalist timepieces for women

Black Watches Boheme and Minuit

You might have often read articles in our blog about designer childrens fashion, decoration or even cosmetics for babies and children.  But what about grown-ups some would ask? Well today, for a change we will not be talking about kids fashion ! – It will be about women. Without further a due, let’s introduce our new favourite brand of the Women Corner: Cluse Watches!

This Dutch company founded in 2013 and creates womens watches !  Their philosophy is that beauty can be found is the simplest things so they design elegant, minimalist timepieces. They like to think that their watches will be a perfect match for people who are grounded, sophisticated and true to themselves. And we think so too !

More than just practical objects that provide you with time, these watches are a beautiful fashion accessory that becomes more and more a jewel that completes any look you choose to wear. Cluse did understand that quite quickly and created a range of simple and refined pieces that we love!

Here at French Blossom, we love the full black “La Roche” watch, made with real marble. Each piece is thus unique and we admire that sophisticated feeling that it gives off. Perfect to accessorize an evening look, it can also add a touch of originality to your working outfit and amaze all you colleagues.

As for the other designs? They will complete any look you like. Whether you’re going for casual, professional or smart, you will find one watch that will match your style. The hardest part will be to choose your colour : in pink, camel, black or grey, which one will it be?

Sparkly or mat, a soft or dark colour, metallic or leather bracelet… You will definitely find one piece that you will like in their collection. Our team at the French Blossom offices certainly did!

The Louise Misha Spring / Summer collection

Jumpsuit Gwen Berry

This week, we had the great pleasure of receiving the new collection of Louise Misha for the Spring Summer season and we simply love it! Inspired by their many travels, the two creators once again take us to their eclectic, vintage inspired universe.

The collection all about romance, innocence and adventure, an original mix of styles that let us dream about exploring hidden gardens or discovering dusty spice scented streets in an Indian city.

Marie and Aurélie, the talented designers of Louise Misha remind us of summer holidays and warm places when it comes to their choice of colours.  Different tones of white mix with notes of melon, coral, sienna, mint, mustard and peach in simple and exotic patterns.

We love those delicately vintage pieces giving that casual yet elegant look dear to the brand. Whether you like the bohemian or the romantic style, you will certainly find what you’re looking for in the dresses, blouses or jumpsuits designed by Louise Misha.

The details on this collection are not to be overlooked either. You can find intricate flowing laces delicately embroidered on the front of the dress Celine, a beautiful lace ribbon on the pant Eloise, bright pompoms on the jumpsuit Goldie and ruffled sleeves on the top Mana… Details that distinguish each piece of a Louise Misha collection.

And if you want to complete the romantic bohemian look, you will also find a beautiful selection of jewellery mixing golden beads, white shells or cheerful pompoms for an added glimmer under the sun!

Fashion Favorite : Tiny Cottons

Potted Plant Tops and Leggings

Tartan T-Shirt

When you think about Spain, the first things that usually come to mind are the sun, beaches, sightseeing… In short, holidays. But what about the textile industry some would say?

Well today, this is what I am going to talk about: Spanish Fashion. And more specifically, kids fashion with a brand we simply love here at French Blossom: Tiny Cottons.

Tiny Cottons was created in 2012 in Barcelona but it was one year later that they presented their first collection, which was a great success. They quickly became well-known in the children fashion universe as a fun brand with unique designs and high quality fabrics. Indeed, they use pima cotton (superior blend of cotton, durable and very absorbent) combined with lightweight cotton woven fabrics, knitted cotton yarns and light denim.

Their motto? Be as imaginative as kids and be as bold and not so serious as they can be. However, as a brand selling clothes, being creative is not the only criteria they have. Making good, long lasting products is just as important as being a fun favourite for kids.

This year, Tiny Cottons new collection is full of sun ! After the team created their little office garden, they decided to take the plants theme a little further. This spring and summer will be all about graphic stories and refreshing colours such as white, green, terracotta, pastel blue and light pink. Among the different patterns, you’ll be able to find potted plants, water textures and even ants tracks! In short, everything to make garden lovers happy, even from the youngest age.

Have a look at this new collection on our website and give in to these original patterns right here – Tiny Cottons !

Sketch Inc – original handmade jewellery

Brooches Set Sketch Inc

Origami Bird Brooch

Sometimes it can be really challenging to find pieces of jewellery that are both original and refined. During endless hours of searching, if you are like me, you may have asked  yourself questions like – “is it fun without being too childish?” or “is it refined without being too classical?”.

Well, here at French Blossom we know the brand that might be just perfect for you: Sketch Inc. Created by Becky Kemp in 2011, Sketch Inc started life in her little studio in the South-East of England.

Entirely handmade, all her creations start on her sketchbook. Becky has always loved sketching and painting ideas as the start of the design process. Her style is a combination between Nordic design and Japanese illustration, two things that have always inspired her.

Becky creates a variety of  products from fun coat hooks, wooden doll characters, plus really adorable greeting cards… We really love are her brooches! Whether being colourful or black and white, made of metal or wood, they will undoubtedly stand out from other brooches thanks to their originality.

Discover the adorable magical unicorn that will please every little girl (and even grown-ups). The soft colours and the golden touch make it easy to match with any outfit so you can take this brooch everywhere with you and stand out from the croud!

We also fell for the lovely panda brooch and its geometrical print. The black, white and gold colours make this graphic brooch feel so modern and stylish. !

Today is all about fashion. And by fashion, I mean delicate and adorable baby fashion. Today, I am going to talk about Poudre Organic, a lovely French brand that joined our amazing designers, here at French Blossom.

Born from the imagination of Manon, an amazing Mum passionate about kids fashion and ecology, Poudre Organic made its way, in 2014, in the child fashion industry with products as soft as they are original: baby nappies, bibs, bodysuits and a whole range of delicate clothes. And everything is made in Portugal or France with organic cotton. Every ingredient to guarantee an irresistible softness and unmistakable comfort for your small ones are right there.

At French Blossom, we particularly like the Capsule Collection “Bisou” that Poudre Organic designed in collaboration with Mathilde Cabanas, illustrator and artist from Nantes. Together, Manon and Mathilde designed four adorable pieces in limited edition.  The collection includes: an embroidered jean jacket, a white t-shirt brightened by a “Bisou” as well as a bodysuit and a stripped leggings.

The ethic philosophy of Poudre Organic and the talent of Mathilde blend together in this beautiful collection filled with poetic and tender tones. Thanks to this limited edition, you will be able to cover your little ones from head to toe with love and you will not be able to resist the urge to kiss them all over ! 💋💋💋 Hence the name of the collection ‘Bisou’  which means kiss in French.

3. I have seen many heart brooches but none in this original style.  The working of the heart have been cleverly detailed with hand embroidery and stitching to create this powerful piece.  Bright red in colour, the brooch looks great against a darker piece of clothing.  The handmade brooch comes in a presentation box and measures 4.5cm in height x 3.5cm in width.

2.  The large feather is my second favourite brooch from the collection by Macon and Lesquoy.  Stylish and chic, the beautiful detailing on this large brooch makes it a great choice for almost any outfit.  The silver embroidery has been broken up with delicate touches of blue and yellow.
The feather brooch measures 10.5cm in length and 2.5cm in width.

1.  My number 1 brooch and persona favourite  has to be the large silver coloured cloud !  The swirling hand embroidery within the body of the cloud is so poetic and detailed.  At the centre of each spiral is a small silver sequin !  The embroidered raindrops gently hang down from the body of the cloud on thin black thread.
