The red, as we imagine it, as a typically warm color, without limits, acts interiorly as a very lively, kindred, restless, which does not possess the character of the prodigality of yellow, which is consumed by spreading from all sides, but It generates, in spite of all its energy and intensity, a strong note of an immense energy, almost conscious of its own end.Wassily Kandinsky
A new year, a new beginning. No resolutions but only a great desire to live what destiny will give us, continuing to bring with us what we had decided would be the leitmotif of 2018: Shine bright, Shine always and anyway, shine with joy and with a pure heart even when life give us problems.
Among the many monuments, museums, venues of Valencia, on our last trip to this beautiful Spanish city we have looked for a new itinerary to be discovered by Sissi and her friends. This time we explored Valencia’s street art.
I like to learn from traditions of other Countries, I like absorbing cultures and recognizing – in a more or less objective way – where others do better than us. Traveling so much, we observe so much, we learn and try to improve ourselves.
This mood, which permeates this blog/magazine (and has always been part of me and my life, basically), makes a tour at 360 degrees in our lifestyle as a family and embraces many themes, first of all kids fashion. We try to choose well, both as a style and as ethics, we try to learn from our beloved Scandinavian brands.
After many years, I can almost say that Scandinavian clothing for children has almost no secrets for us: anyway we continue to search, to discover, to travel, to shoot. We know where to look, maybe the point is just that: our research in the field of Scandinavian clothing for children never stops because it evolves with Sissi, following the seasonal trends and the requests of those who read us.
With back to school, especially with the beginning of primary school, we need to find kids outfit that were suitable to be worn even under the school apron.
Beyond the considerations – totally personal, but I tell you that I absolutely disagree – whether it is right or not that children wear school apron, the obligation of this garment requires, especially for those who have problems with dermatitis such as Sissi, a series of precautions.
There would be no difference between the ‘strong’ and the ‘beautiful’ sex. (Walter Gropius)
A quote by the founder of the Bauhaus movement, whose school, in 1917,was open to every person of good repute, regardless of age and sex with a progressive and modern mentality. A movement that certainly fascinates those who have passion and studies also in architecture, a real fundamental point of reference for all the innovation movements in the field of design and architecture.
New autumn/winter 2018/2019 collection comes out of the black, finally declared a color suitable also for children and made modern and fashionable by Infantium Victoria. It is called Marine Symbiosis and it’s a highly tactile collection, which delights the senses in luxurious iterations of classic silhouettes that however offer unexpected details.
For Sissi it’s time for Primary School: no posts with tears, just positive thoughts! Sissi has grown up and she’s more than ready and mature to begin this new adventure. But every novelty, you know, hides some unknown and surely the change destabilizes even most optimistic parents and kids: how to approach back to school with optimism? We chose to lean on the favorite superheroes of the moment for Sissi: Miraculous Ladybug will accompany us not only with notebooks, cases, backpack, but also with a total look signed Guess Kids.
If your little girl loves Marinette and her alter ego Ladybug, you absolutely cannot miss this Guess x “Be Miraculous” collection.
Who more than the Danes know hygge? And what time of year is better than back to school and to work to start planning our days in Hygge style?
To understand what hygge is you have to try it.
It is to be curled up on the sofa with the ones you love.
It is the feeling of being at home, safe, conversing on the small or big things in life, or sipping a cup of tea by yourself.
Nowadays is easy to find organic clothing for children: just look at the brands of Northern Europe (but there are also many Italian, Spanish, French…) and thanks to many online retailers, with a few days of waiting, we can get home wonderful organic kids outfit.
Organic clothing for children generally looks to the daily: T-shirts, sweatshirts, jeans… All the garments for casual styles are easily available, but if we look for something special, unique, to use on special occasions, the circle is tightening and the brands become very few.
Infantium Victoria is one of them, indeed it is much more than a high-end brand in organic clothing fro children: Infantium Victoria has a complete approach to a sustainable lifestyle, which also includes organic, vegan, slow fashion.
Another article about back to school… how many articles have you read these days? In the Web you will find decalogues and magic formulas, articles whose common thread is “my little child has grown up”, considerations on school calendars, classes, WhatsApp groups of moms that come back to life these days.
Sissi will be in first grade. And this article could take a sentimental, very sentimental, twist. Or stay just and purely fashion, just like the beautiful outfits that we offer in these shots, signed Kenzo Kids.
After holidays, after sea, mountain, travel abroad and a few weekends to relax with friends, it’s time to start thinking about shopping for the back to school. In fact the launches of the new collections last month have forced us to do some shopping for autumn when in Italy there were over 35 degrees… But you know, for shopping there is always a good reason, and July is always a perfect moment in which with a unique shipment you can buy items on sale and new arrivals.
Detach from technology and live the present, live every moment intensely, with all five senses: this is the mood of the capsule collection launched by Molo to celebrate its 15th birthday. It is titled – not by chance – Time to be present and fascinated us so much to carry some pieces around with us in our BlogTour in Finland.
Sometimes Sissi just want to wear a dress. One of those classic girl dresses, always beautiful and never out of style, that remind us of our grandmothers, those garments made with love and dedication. Those garments that teach you what care really means, which let you imagine skilled hands sewing a garment with love and wisdom.
Sometimes we need only contact with nature, simplicity, like walking in a cornfield at sunset.
And despite the simplicity of this location, a few kilometers from home, Sissi is still amazed: she wants to learn, to know how and why these golden spikes will become flour (and then pizza!).
