Recently launching their latest collection in their store here in Singapore, Elly's new range features a myriad of bright fun colors and quirky prints (who doesn't love mustaches on their shirt?). We know that in most parts of the world you guys are going to be experiencing cold weather soon, or have already started to be, but for some of us it's still the season for bright colors and florals.
Elly's kidwear features a range of lightweight dresses and onesies for the girls which we totally adore in this heat. Plus the frills on the sleeves melt our heart for sure.
For all other items featured in this shoot, please scroll to the bottom of the post to find out where you can get them.
One of our favourites in the new collection is the baby girl onsie in floral floric apricot. This design also comes in a matching dress for older girls so that sisters can be matchy matchy! It's cute!
This whimsical mustache print cracked us up! Perfect for a little guy.
We snapped these pictures of Elly's new collection in the midst of the mini renovation of the Bloesem store. Here are some of the props gathered through Irene's travels back home to Amsterdam as well as some of the new items in store. Find all the links to the new products at the end of this post.

Giantsuper was the product of Paul teaching his son the ABCs. Using simple shapes and bright colors, the flashcards feature fun and graphic animals. After other parents started requesting Paul print more copies for their children, he decided to share his work with the rest of the world.
Bright colours, animals, shapes and patterns ... these cards are not only designed beautifully, they are made beautifully as well. All the cards come in a sturdy luxurious box, nothing like the flash cards I used as a kid. This product is so unique .. to be enjoyed by both parent and child. Learning ABCs just became a whole lot more attractive!

Last week we received a surprise package with what seems to be the softest, most luxurious pieces of clothing ever. Our lovely friends over at Eden & Zoe sent over a few of their cashmere pieces and everyone is in love with them. Sadly the blanket would be too small for an adult to cuddle in and the clothes would never fit us (maybe just one of our arms?).
But! For everyone and anyone with a daughter, this is for you!
You wouldn't ever be able to tell (and we were shocked to find out) but each of the small collections Eden & Zoe carries is made up of pure cashmere pieces, which are all created using a hand-operated knitting machine and then finished by hand. We are officially impressed.
(... you have to click for more and enjoy Zara's fantastic styling for this shoot after the break and see the rest Eden & Zoe's very beautiful collection ... and if I wasn't lucky enough she also took the images. I am very proud of her and super happy she is part of the Bloesem Team)
If comfort is your main concern when purchasing clothing for your princesses, then it isn't really even a concern in this case. The pieces are so soft and well-made, no more "itchy" knitwear problems, which can really be an issue when bundling up in the cold seasons. Also cashmere is natural and breathable, perfect for children's wear. Plus the stretchiness of the pieces allow for comfortable stretching and play, which we all know is very important for every child.

Recently we had the chance to try out some of the really cool pieces from Le Petit Society. They sent over some items from their range for us to try on our little model here!
Kiet, my 4,5 year old is not the easiest when it comes to getting dressed ... he prefers to walk in his Barcelona or Ajay soccer outfit ... and no this mama is not always happy with that. Just when I was getting nervous he ran to the yellow shorts and asked if he could wear them ... must have been the little rockets that made hime love these shorts so much.
At a certain point Kiet really got into his new modelling job and thought the red crown (from LolaJazz) with purple feathers would make a nice match ... who was I to argue with that :)
Kids clothes are almost always cute and all that because of the sheers size of it, how can little shirts and pants not be cute! But what we love about the boys range from Le Petit Society is how they make the classics cool again. The bright blue stripes, the yellow patches on the pants, the little rockets on the yellow shorts, all great twists on the classic staples we all love to have in their wardrobe. On top of all that, the material is A-mazing! Soft and sturdy, quality items that, you can be assured, won't go out of style.

ps. Everything came packed in these beautiful gift boxes and they have free shipping in Asia!
