THE ANIMALS OBSERVATORY SS18 collection will be available online on JANUARY 23 (6:00 am CET) AND WE ARE HAPPY TO BE ONE OF THE RETAILERS OF THE GREAT BRAND FROM SPAIN.

Inspiration behind the collection:
With her inexhaustible curiosity, Laia Aguilar usually derives inspiration for her collections from a multitude of artistic references , seeing art as a form ofattaining beauty in any discipline. In the case of the SS18 collection, her sources of inspiration were the paintings of British and American artists, such as David Hockney and Fairfield Porter, the posters of Polish graphic artist Jerzy Treutler, the amazing homemade designs worn by part icipants in the 1960s Democratic and Republican conventions in the USA, Halley’s Comet, the street style of the 1970s – for which Laia has such a great fondness – university uniforms…and a long list of other references that harmoniously come together in this new collection.
In terms of the colour palette, Laia Aguilar wanted to go for a stronger, more luminous and striking project for SS18: emphasising the use of intense greens, pinks and blues and their radical coexistence in the same garment; without, however, losing sight of the combination of these colours alongside the softer palette of the Italian school, already a regular feature of the TAO collections.
The range of fabrics selected for this season seeks to harmoniously counterbalance the colours. For SS18, in addition to the habitual top quality cottons used by TAO, Laia also opts for lightweight linens, the most rustic vichys, diaphanous tulles and shiny, soft, stylish satins.

Online and in our shop in Lisbon.
For a long time, we acted just as a “showroom” – a room where we showed our collections to clients or passers-by, without being a “real shop”.
Right now, we are finalizing all necessary actions to become “a real shop” 🙂
We are reorganizing and marking all the pieces, testing software and … everything necessary for the new real store to run as smoothly as necessary.
At is it SALE PERIOD, we are also reorganizing the look of the showroom (shop!), to be able to show more items at the same time and get rid of stocks (as we have just a mini-storage in the back).
So please feel free to visit us if you are in Lisbon, help us clear stocks and get ready for the new winter season that will start soon.
You will get really nice items at really good prices – too good to be honest, but that is the way the market just works in this crazy year of 2017 (more about that later on another post!).
You can shop our SUMMER SALE here at LOJA DADA FOR KIDS – coolest kids shop in Lisbon, with worldwide deliveries!
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.
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!

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)
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.

Fresh Dinosaurs was born on a small island, Mallorca, in the Balearic Islands surrounded by the Mediterranean Sea. Fresh Dinosaurs means a free soul, love of the sea, sun and absorbing the light and colours of nature. It evokes fun, innocence, happiness and kindness.
Meanwhile DINOSAURS recalls the past, which, in turn, is relevant to our children´s present. The whole concept is one of freedom and respect. It is love for the earth and its surroundings.
“We move to the sea” is its first collection inspired by the Mediterranean, adding to the clothes the colors of its sun, sand, and sea. Easy to wear silhouettes with special attention to jerseys, encouraging playfulness and a relaxed approach to life.
