WHEN WE WENT TO DOT TO DOT AND BUBBLE LONDON

Meeting the Brands We Love

 

It’s so nice to pop along to the kids’ trade shows, as we get to spot new brands, check out some beautiful products up close and put some faces to the instagrammers we follow and love. We dropped by Dot To Dot London and Bubble London this week and met some old favourites, discovered new ones-to-watch, ate gin-soaked marshmallows and peanut-flavoured popcorn, stepped into a giant Bubble (thanks to Sharky And George kids’ parties) and had a gossip with the people behind the Brands We Love. Along with a host of gorgeous new finds (appearing on Fussy Bird soon) here are a few to watch out for in the meantime.

We've already detailed our joy over the new-season bounty in Into Autumn for the girls. Soft knits, cosy hues of mustard and plums, snuggly accessories - we're all in. Conker season is traditionally a time of Good Clothes and wrapping up stylishly (you've seen The September Issue, right? It's the same for kids in our eyes). And there are some fantastic new lines for the boys, too.

Forget seasons of mist, it's all about the season of musts this autumn, as in what we must have for their wardrobes. And yes we do love collecting conkers and kicking through crispy leaves and smelling bonfires in the air on the walk home from school, but we also love all the fab new-season collections. Bring on the soft knits, cosy tights and the warm russets, mustards and plums of autumn...

If you've been watching Stranger Things on Netflix (and if you haven't, seriously, where have you been? Cancel everything and binge-watch the first season now - since its release this summer Netflix has already commissioned a second series, airing in 2017) you'll know that the dorkiest coolest kids in town at the moment are Mike, Lucas, Dustin and Will. Their Goonies meets E.T. meets Stephen King sci-fi adventures have fuelled an '80s nostalgia trip thanks to the show's near-perfect recreation of the era, and our sartorial eye has been on the detail for their retro apparel.

The new term is well under way, and we're just about getting our heads around which day is PE day, when the after-school clubs are, homework, lunchboxes, shoe-polishing and knotting a tie once again. But as smart and lovely as they look in their uniforms, it's always nice for them to have some comfies to throw on when they get home and can concentrate only on stuffing their faces and zoning out in front of Octonauts.
