Little Creative Factory Hits Babesta!

camille jacketLet Fall and Winter come sooner! We received so many shipments of new clothes ready for our babes to wear them once the cooler weather hits. We received adorable sweaters from La Miniatura, colorful skinny jeans from ESP. NO. 1, adorable domino fashions, and adorable rain boots! New clothes excite me!

We also received new clothes from Little Creative Factory. Upon opening the new goodie box of their clothes, their adorable snoods and jackets just caught my eye! I immediately picked up all their clothes and Ohhhed and Ahhed while wishing I had a baby nephew and niece! This is our first time receiving clothes from Little Creative Factory, and we’re excited to introduce them!

A beginning of a new brand:

Little Creative Factory was founded in Barcelona by two architect mothers, Cristina Fernandez and Esther Villanueva. They both create limited editions of clothing and accessories for children between 3 months and 8 years old. Little Creative Factory combines simplicity with different and fun patterns and fabrics. Their products are mainly created by cotton and linen, so it is super comfortable and stylish. Cristina and Esther created Little Creative Factory to express their creativity while showing that everything should be made with love.

Under Construction…

Little Creative Factory believes that children and adults should always be “under construction”, changing their ways and becoming more creative and positive. Hence, their fall/ winter collection is titled “Playing Under Construction”. According to Pirouette Blog, Little Creative Factory focuses on a slow fashion. Slow Fashion does not only mean clothes and fashion that are not changing quickly. It teaches consumers the process of how clothes are made, shows off a personal style, values quality, and reminding of conscious consumption. It promotes wearing the same fashion in different seasons, unlike the traditional fast fashion, which clothes change very season! Little Creative Factory also aims to stand against child exploitation and bad usages of natural resources.

As of now…

2011 marked their first opening of their store in Barcelona, but now, their line can be seen in many different locations in Europe, Asia, and our very own USA! They have spread pretty much worldwide, and it is so great to see how successful they have become. Check out their line and feel the softness of their products. They do not have an online site to shop, but do check them out on Babesta’s online website!

Chatting with Cassandra Rhodin of Mini Rodini

Cassandra Rhodin of Mini Rodini

Whether on a onesie or a national ad campaign, Swedish designer Cassandra Rhodin deftly pulls from the beautiful, quirky fantasy world she’s envisaged, replete with anthropomorphic animals and vintage references, served up with a modern twist. Wielding her pen she knows how to entice and entertain, possibly a genetic talent passed down from her great grandfather, circus king Brazil Jack. Though her heritage and own childhood inspire, when it comes to designing her children’s wear label Mini Rodini, Rhodin notes, “My biggest inspiration definitely comes from hanging out with my two kids. Their imagination is unbelievable.” Fall ’13 is arguably her strongest collection to date, and, we hear, Rhodin is growing the label from kids’ wear into home goods. We were psyched to sit down with ringleader Rhodin and hear the ballyhoo on the brand.

Shine Bright Like a Diamond

We’ve got gems galore from Mini Rodini this season!  Now we know that technically diamonds don’t shine, they reflect; but because they’re reflecting the sheer awesomeness of your kid’s style we figure we can get away with the phrase.

We think Mimi had it right with regards to styling the print, but you can definitely get away with a ton of cool outfits by breaking up her look into separates.  We’d love to hear how you style your kids’ gems, so hit the comments and let us know!

Dressed to the Nines

Be dashing in the snow this winter in this gorgeous velvet tux from Mini Rodini.  We love it for special occasions or for making every day occasions a little bit more special (Hey, if I’d had this as a kid, I don’t know if you could have paid me to take it off.  I love it!).  Seriously, we can’t talk about how lux this tux is enough…
