Nursery inspo

Ok, so the brand has been around for a while, but it IS a new collection and we’ve been blown away by Home Centre's latest nursery and kids’ lines – full of uber-modern, fun and stylish designs, with a premium feel and an unexpectedly Scandi-inspired bent, you could be forgiven for thinking you’d accidentally wandered into an Instagram feed (except the prices are just so reasonable!).

Free spirits 

We’re big fans of Clarks kids’ shoes, and love the breezy vibe of its S/S18 collection ‘Free. To Be Me’, which stars lightweight, flexible, yet sturdily crafted and well-cushioned sandals and high-tops in fresh and classic colours, with none of the overt genderfying that kids’ shoes are sometimes criticised for (we reckon boys could rock these white sandals just as well as girls!).

Bath buddies

Socialite and businesswoman Tamara Ecclestone has made her first foray into the parenting market with the launch of Fifi & Friends, a collection of natural, hypoallergenic bath and body baby products. Inspired by her daughter Sophia (FiFi), there are a range of specialised shampoos (the chlorine-neutralising Gentle Swimmer’s Shampoo is a fave), as well baby washes, organic aloe vera-infused wipes and lots of nourishing unguents.

Mini mavens

Psst! A little birdie’s told us about the launch of a fab new online store for kids, mums and dads: Little Wren. It has a luxe feel, yet sensible price points, with carefully curated, fresh designs from boutique brands like Max and the star, Done by Deer and We Might be Tiny. We love the irreverent slogan tees and gender-neutral designs.

Hats off to this

Personalise your little one’s headgear with Twenty5Zero5’s new range of customisable floppy and widebrim hats and panamas. Embroider their name or a fun slogan, then add patches, tassels or embellishments to create a treasured accessory or an ideal gift. Its new range of sizes will now fit girls aged 1-10, and you can even grab your own, with the Mummy-and-Me adult-size range.
Dh80 for the kids’ size.
