Limited editions, collaborations and new collections – here’s a few kids ranges that I’m looking forward to.
Although, we’re still in the middle of summer (at time of writing it was sunny!) the fashion world are already looking forward to the next season.
But, before I do any round-ups and shopping guides I just wanted to highlight a few ranges that are in store now or hitting the shelves soon.
Make a note in your dairy – you really won’t want to miss out!

Disney again…but this time just the iconic pair. Micky and Minnie. High street store Mamas & Papas have teamed up with Disney to produce a very wearable – even for those of us who aren’t keen on ‘character clothing”…ahem.
From subtle prints to graphic outlines – the Disney mice are mixed with sorbet shades, stripes and a greys – give this collection a fresh and modern edge. From newborn to age 4 this fun collection has playtime written all over it.

WHAT: #JoulesXQuentinBlake – ‘Farms for City Children’ collection
WHERE: Joules and Joules.com
WHEN: August 2015
I do love a limited edition fashion collaboration. And, none more than a quirky British one. High street store Joules has teamed up with Farms for City Children (a charity that offers life changing opportunities for children from urban environment to experience life on a working farm) to create an exclusive children’s collection.
The five-piece collection feature rough and tumble pieces that are suitable for city or farm life no matter what the weather – like a waterproof jacket, tops for layering and of course Joules signature wellies.
And, whats more the collection features unique prints by renowned illustrator Sir Quentin Blake – and The Farms for City Children Vice-President. Plus 5% of each item sold will go to Farms for City Children.

WHO: Carremént Beau
WHERE: alexandalexa.com, childresnsaolon.com, melijoe.com
WHEN: August 2015
Carremént Beau is a brand new collection launching this season that has been influenced by a pair of unique fashion stylists. Drawing inspiration from their french roots – this fun fashion collection for kids is fresh, modern and offers something a little different.
Expect classic shapes with a quirky little twist, bold colours mixed with pastels hues and quality finishes and details. A little poetic and with a definite Parisian feel – think Bon Point – and you get the picture.
Carremént Beau is preppy, traditional and sweet and it will go from newborn to 12 years. I have also had a peak at the next collection for Spring and I have to confess – it’s a label to watch!
WHO: Mamas & Papas
WHEN: September 2015
Mamas & Papas again. But, this collection is very special indeed. Mamas & Papas X Liberty is an exclusive collaboration that is bound to be a sell out instantly.
With products you would expect from M&P – pushchairs, cribs and clothing fused with Liberty’s iconic heritage prints – this baby collection will make you want a baby like now!
It also collides with the 140th anniversary of Liberty London – proving the timeless and eternal appeal of it’s distinctive patterns. Expect vintage toys and ditsy florals for the nursery, bold pushchairs that are bound to get you noticed and the cutest fashion collection for babies to 2 years (although there is only one set for boys!)
Any going on your shopping list?
