This brand is still not part of our shop, but we still love it (everything about it, specially this first summer collection – SS17)
Bandy Button is a French brand created in 2006 by Jessica Ben- Ami, addicted to kids fashion since her two main sources of inspiration her two daughter, April and Joey were born (sounds familiar?).
Jessica started by creating hand made pieces of clothing for her children and her friends’ ones but soon she was overwhelmed. Thanks to her entrepreneur husband, they decided to create a “real collection”.
The essence of “Bandy Button” is to create “cool” clothes in which kids will feel comfortable to play and discover the world of freedom.
The prints and illustrations are all handmade. The opening collection is based on Los Angeles in the 70’s, in a relaxed atmosphere filled with roller skates, skate boards, shorts, overalls and Teddy jackets..
Let’s hope to meet them at Loja Dada for Kids in SS18.
What do you think? Good idea?
Another brand to watch. And i say that not like an expert from a trend agency.
I say that from me to you. It’s a nice small brand. It doesn’t rock the world – better so.
Sometimes, less is more, specially if it is full of nice little details and with a careful production. Deep inside we are all looking for the simple things and to go back to some point in time that feels secure.
Fish & Kids symbolizes a return to the past, always with an updated, fresh and daring feel. Commodity and ease of mixing garments between one another as well as being almost all unisex is another key point of the collections.
Soon at Loja Dada for Kids! We are looking forward.
I saw this brand at Playtime last winter and fell in love with its simplicity – as most of the time, lately.
Everything is becoming busy and complex, too much “information” everywhere (noise) and so i guess my mind always feels drawn towards the simple brands, pieces, colors etc.
I am an absolute fan of quality over quantity, and i love to have a few great items that we can use over and over, and it instantly became clear to me that this brand would fit my shop.
And when i started talking to In-Yeo Couperus, the brand creator and designer, it was clear to me that i would have to order some items for theAW17 collection of Loja Dada for Kids.
This picture is taken from their Facebook page, you can also check their instagram to understand the feeling i am talking about, or as they put it on their webpage:
“We seek sense of timeless repose in children’s wear
Where comfort and design meet harmoniously through colors, forms and textures
Where the endless imagination of children” connects with the modern aesthetics of parents in unique, lasting pieces”
Please look forward to a little selection from this gorgeous brand on Loja Dada for Kids sometime soon (AW17 will launch somewhere between July and August, in the middle of our deserved summer vacation!).
It’s a KNITWEAR COLLECTION with a summer mood, produced in just a limited number of units. The only question here is: green or blue?
Available on May 24 at www.lojadada.com !
If there is one brand that we are specially fond of – besides all other brands we carry at Loja Dada for Kids – it is Nico Nico. A truly understated brand, with focus on simplicity, modern and comfortable cuts, special colors and prints and environmentally conscious materials.
We said one post before this that the Bobo Choses campaign images were our favorite this season, but 5 minutes later we remembered “oh, we forgot Nico Nico!” It’s hard to have a favorite when surrounded by so much loveliness.
Nico Nico designs comfortable and timeless styles. Quality, value and respect for the environment are key values. All of their clothes are designed and fabricated in Los Angeles. We hope you and your little ones play, explore and relax in Nico Nico!
You can helps us make this brand grow togehter with us, check out our selection here!
It is our firm opinion that everybody needs good basics. And we are talking about quality here, not about clothes from the throw-away generation of clothes.
I Dig Denim is a brand from Sweden, created by Hanna Clavegard in 2009.
Quoting Hanna: “I have always loved jeans. Everything from the character of the fabric, to how it can be shaped and adapted according to style and taste. Denim is timeless, easy to wear and practical. With my brand I want to give children and women what I love – personal clothing that are made to feel comfortable in. It’s simple, I dig denim.”
The items from this brand are well-made, durable, well-fitted, coming from a company not producing in Europe, but operating under a strict code of ethics, similar to the one we are following as a retailer, when choosing our brands.
It is a persistent myth that children grow too fast, that clothes don’t fit long. Usually, kids clothes are used (intensively, yes, and this is why quality is important, too, because they are worn and washed all the time) during a fair amount of time, sometimes a very long amount of time. Maybe the most delicate part of clothing are pants, as kids (specially boys we hear) tend to tear the pants a lot (and that can be a problem!), but if you buy your clothing in the right size, usually we find it to last and get appreciated for long enough. And if in good condition you can still hand it over to family and friends!
As a shop-owner, mother and consumer, i find it it worth the effort buying the “good” items, buying less, but buying better quality, buying from smaller brands and retailers, but buying something special.And I Dig Denim are definitely “good items, that feel well, look well, and last for as long as they need to!
Please enjoy I Dig Denim! (our selection is available here, at our online shop)
This is surely one of our favorite work of art this season. These pictures are beautiful, they transmit the mood of a calm and mature collection. The brand has grown but still looks playful and relaxed, in exact the right combination for pleasing small and big children alike, and even mothers enter our shop trying on the bigger sizes for themselves!

The Animals Observatory – the Spanish brand under the creative direction of Laia Aguilar – has released new lookbook pictures and we are really happy about the result, as they give a good idea of the feeling and looks obtained when mixing and matching and using all those beautiful items.
At Loja Dada for Kids we value the efforts of “small” and creative brands, considering small the opposite of huge brands, corportations, chains.
The smaller brands are the creative one, creating new conceps, looks, visuals, feelings and lifestyles, and the bigger brands and corporation each season draw heavy inspiration from this true Artwork.
We like to keep the world small, we like to know where our products are coming from, who made them and how and where. As many of the other brands we offer at our online shop and Lisbon showroom , this brand too is produced in Europe, mostly Spain and Portugal, which makes us particularly happy.
As a mother as well i prefer to shop fewer but more special items, that make us feel connected to the world, because we feel connected to the people and stories behind the brands.
