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: Naïf, Natural Baby Skincare Products

Naif Complete Product Range

These days, more and more skincare products for babies flood the market so we can’t help wonder which one is really good for your baby? Which one combines efficiency, respects  your baby’s skin and also smells nice?

At French Blossom, we found one brand that matches all these criteria. Its name? Naïf. This young cosmetics brand for babies made it its mission to offer natural products that won’t hurt your little one’s delicate skin.

Naïf was created when two friends found out they were going to be fathers. They started to be concerned for the welfare of their future children and started reading label after label, realizing how difficult it is to find the perfect baby skincare products.

From here they decided to create a range of baby skincare products for which each and every name on the labels would be pronounceable and not confusing to users. And because nature is  best, they use cottonseed oil, sweet almond oil, macadamia oil and avocado oil as the main ingredients.

We like the adorable and funny packaging designs used by Naïf that offers a refreshing perspective where they see the adult world through children’s eyes. Bright colours and great drawings are one thing that makes their products stand out from the others.

We also love the delicate smell of these creams, lotions and shampoos.

Our favourite product has to be the protecting baby sunscreen because it is fairly rare to find one specially made for babies, and it is even rarer to find one made with natural ingredients! This cream is perfect to go on a walk when it is sunny outside without having to worry too much about your baby’s delicate skin!

Arizona Tipis Black Ambiance

Arizona Tipi Blue Yellow and Pink

Today, I have the great pleasure to announce  the beautiful tipis by the Spanish brand Nobodinoz have finally arrived at French Blossom

We were really excited to receive these little Indian huts for children and now here they are! Measuring 1.50m and available in a variety of colours, these tipis can be a beautiful decorative item as well as the best playground ever for your little ones so they can imagine having great adventures in the far west, fending off mean cowboys.

These tipis can be placed outside (if the sun is out) as well as inside. Whether in the living room or in the bedroom, they will certainly bring some originality to your interior decoration thanks to the lovely patterns created by Nobodinoz. In blue, black, green or pink, with zig zags, scales or little sparks, you will surely find one pattern that can match the furniture and decorative items you already have in place.

Easy and quick to assemble, we especially love the vintage feel they give off as well as the dash of colour and originality they bring into the room. As for myself, I really like the tipi with the green and black sparks pattern. I love the association of white, black and green that can match numerous decors, whether it be for a little girl’s or a little boy’s room!

And for even more comfort, you can add the Apache large rug under you tipi. Made specifically to match the tents diameter, the rug can turn a tipi from awesome hideout to secret place to take an afternoon snooze!

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?

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!

Tropicool Ambiance with Goodnight Light’s pineapple lamps

Pineapple Lamp Set

If you like the Tropicool trend, you will definitely love these great pineapple lamps made by Goodnight Light.  Yesterday we had some fun in the office and took pictures of the lamps in all sorts of settings to share with you here at the blog!

The pineapple lamps certainly are poetic and stylish with a touch of vintage. Available in many colours, they can fit numerous decoration styles and are ideal as a gift idea for adults as well as children !

The lamps are perfect for children as they do not heat up and can help you create a warm glowing ambiance in their rooms at night.  The LED light bulbs are really economic and the fact they are handmade make them super original.

Why not turn the lamps into simple sculptures ?   You only have to remove the power cable! Measuring 32 cm in height and being fairly light weight, you can put them anywhere you wish! On a shelf, on a dresser, on a night table.

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 !

Play And Go: the ingenuity of one bag

Storage Bag for Kids Play and Go

Ever dreamed about having something making it possible for you to avoid hours of hide-and-seek with your kid’s favourite toy he just lost? Or having to spend your whole day off tidying after him? The answer is probably yes.

Well, search no more, here at French Blossom, we have the perfect solution and it’s called Play and Go.

Now, you will probably wonder what Play and Go is? Based in Belgium, the designer creates bags with cheerful colours and patterns. These bags however are unlike any other and have a practical double use: from a storage bag, they can change into a play mat in only a few seconds!

With a large diameter of 140 cm, the play mat is super comfy for your little ones and the storage bag is perfect for holding plush toys, Lego, little soldiers, construction cubes, dolls…. anything you child plays with, really. Still not convinced? These products are guaranteed 3 years and are made of high quality cotton fabric that will last a long time and resist the years of playing your child still has ahead of him / her!

How does it work? Very simply: you only have to tighten the strings located on the outer circle of the mat and tada! You have a storage bag that captured every toy that was laying on it. The pretty patterns available also turn the bag into a nice decorative item when it is not in use. Anchors, moustaches, super-heroes, geometrical patterns or just plain colours, you will surely find a design that can match you current decoration. Hung from a coat hook or simply put in a corner of the room, it can be stored in no time.

But these are not the only advantages of Play and Go products. This storage bag, thanks to its practical strings, can also be a toy transport bag! Your child will then be able to play wherever he wants without needing to move all his toys one by one or risking losing some of them in the process. In his bedroom, the living room, at a friend’s or at his grandparents, at the beach or at the park, this bag can be taken with him anywhere he wants. And if you don’t want to carry it by hand, you can also put it in a suitcase or a large backpack.
