Brandwatch: Bandy Button

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?

 

 

Fish & Kids

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.

Repose AMS (soon at Loja Dada for Kids)

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!).

Nico Nico SS17

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!

Bobo Choses SS17 – the nicest campaign images this season

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!

Check our selection of Bobo Choses (“A Legend”) collection here!

The Animals Observatory SS17 Lookbook Images

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.

Check our selection of The Animals Observatory here, at our online shop!

Le Petit Germain SS17

We can’t wait to get the new collection in the shop to show you more! Meanwhile we will visit them in Paris to have a look at the next Autumn/Winter collection.

Le Petit Germain SS17 will be launching on Feb. 20. Stay tuned for our selection at Loja Dada for Kids.

The Animals Observatory SS17 online now!

One of the most expected SS17 collections is launched today!

As you can see by the photos we are talking about The Animals Observatory.

The Creator, Laia Aguilar,  wanted to express herself on each garment and traveled back to her old memories that have inspired her through the years such as movies she saw, places she went or books that she read.

This season, our favorites are the blouses with the small ruffles and the shorts that will fit boys and girls alike!

Check out our website this morning, it will be online at 10.00 AM CET.

Bobo Choses SS17 – A LEGEND

We are glad to present the Bobo Choses SS17 collection: “A Legend” – a collection inspired by sport legends from around the world and through time.

Retro and comfortable shapes in different fabrics and beautiful washed colors.

Among the prints you can find Mr Badminton, some skating flamingos, John McEnroe’s broken tennis rackets, vintage volleyballs and many more!
Bobo Choses is also a brando that is  fully aware of the necessity to make environment friendly  products: this season, 48% of the SS17 production is Organic Cotton.

Besides that, most of the collection is – as always – produced in Europe.

Gray Label SS17

Right now, with winter in Lisbon at its coldest, we only think about spring and the warmer days, with the most beautiful colors, shades and smells. (If you haven’t already, you should definitely visit Lisbon this year! And if you do, please show up at our showroom so you see all the beautiful clothes in real!)

graylabelss17-3graylabelss17-1gray_label_ss17jpggray_label_ss17graylabel_ss17_4graylabel_ss17_5

Gray Label is one of our favorite brands and a bestseller at our showroom. We are so fond of the quality of the products, the soft touch of the clothes and the amazing colors – simple and perfect, pieces you can use on all occasions and that everybody will enjoy.

As a Portuguese shop we have a special feeling for this brand because their clothes are made in Portugal, which makes us very proud!

Gray Label will launch its new collection on January 16th – with a brandnew color called “green Sage” which is absolutely AMAZING! We saw it at Playtime in Paris and fell in love at first sight. There will also be some new models, like a very sweet summer romper, a long skirt (must-have alert!) and a new short skirt (salopette).

Have a look and discover this beautiful palette of colors and dreams.

Gray Label will be available at our online shop http://www.lojadada.com ON JANUARY 16, 2017 and also at our showroom in the center of Lisbon.
