Some grown-ups have forgotten how it is to be a kid. We haven´t! Playing is serious business! The entire world is a circus, at least according to BANGBANG Copenhagen the Danish designers Louise Lundholm & Mia Risager founded their brand in 2008 which merged their roots in contemporary design with a love of the playful spirit of children. Their world fuses a high-fashion, conceptual outlook with origami folding technique and urban comfortable streetwear, with silhouettes perfectly tailored for children’s body shape and movement. That way fun is put into function and the result is a highly-creative collection of playful clothing for contemporary parents and their children to enjoy Just call them gender-benders, cause they are not in favour of girls wearing pink and boys wearing blue.
DESIGN LETTERS & Friends is a Danish design company founded by former copy writer and journalist Mette Thomsen. Mette has always been a great fan of words and writing and in 2009 she merged it with her passion for design by establishing DESIGN LETTERS. In 2009 there were no fashionable letters in the interiors world. Only multicolored letters for kids’ wall decoration. Why not change this, she asked herself, and felt the idea was so good that she decided to quit her job at the danish interior magazine Bolig Magasinet and founded DESIGN LETTERS by launching a radically different series of monochrome letters. Later the company’s collection expanded to include Arne Jacobsen’s hand-drawn typography from 1937. The rest is a history. Today DESIGN LETTERS & Friends carries a significant collection within Living, Stationery, Furniture and Kids designs – with and without letters. The brand is represented in more than 1000 design-led shops in 55 countries.
Gardner and the Gang©is a children’s clothing line by Kristin Nystrom, a Swede living in Singapore. All garments are super soft, comfy and play friendly with a high dose of fashion. Kristin draws all prints and makes characters that all have a story to tell. We love to come up with different themes for each range, ones that children and parents alike can relate to and fall in love with. Our original art is all hand-drawn, and these drawings are turned into screens, which are then screen-printed on organic cotton. “I am taking inspiration from my experiences from living and traveling all over the world and want to normalize all people, animals and cultures to our children. We all live together in this world and we should all be friends… Really…” Kristin
Huxbaby is about minimalist fashions for kids with an adult level of style. Their designs blend super soft organic cotton with a clean aesthetic – clothes that allow kids to be kids without sacrificing style.
The hux philosophy centers around the idea of paring back to essentials and simple style. They believe less is indeed more. Minimalism is a lifestyle and design that is clear of unnecessary complications or clutter, seeking a refinement of form that is steered by function.
With sustainability a focus, their mainly gender-neutral designs allow parents the freedom to buy once and buy well. Most of their clothing is made from GOTS certified organic cotton or cotton blends that feel luxurious on the skin, whilst still ensuing awareness for the world in which we live.
Inspired by simple design principles, their pieces draw on a minimalist palette matched with edgy and playful graphics.
