Just last Saturday, the Caperberry team jumped on the Eurostar and headed to sunny Paris. Or more specifically, Parc Floral de Paris, for the 26th edition of Playtime Paris.
This buzzy hive was home for the weekend to 500 beautiful (and exquisitely curated) brands from around the globe. From the NEW NOW space, spotlighting first time exhibitors to the Crea.tif space where twelve talented graphic and textile designers set up easels of their latest designs… There were conferences, creative workshops, even the renowned artist, Chris Gambrell, working on a ‘live’ mural.
In search of new season nuggets, creative flair and innovation, all within the childrens clothing and homeware slice of life, we thought we’d share a few favourites that hit the spot:
New Kids In The Hood
Using pre-loved fabrics, NKITH creates new and timeless kids clothes, with the coolest of hats being their signature piece. Based in Germany, this sustainable label has got the fun factor down to a tee.
This brand is like a big toothy grin… Or what we like to call ‘contagious happiness!’ Colourful and quirky, this Dutch kids label creates backpacks, pencil cases, temporary tattoos, embroidered pins – your one-stop for everything ‘back to school’.
Settled in between mountains and nature with avant-garde inspired silhouettes and a dash of flair, you’ll find Hilda.Henri. The Vienna-based label draws inspiration from traditional craftsmanship rooted in the Alpine region and strictly follows the rules of traditional Austrian crafts. Every pieces is just plain beautiful.
Made in Portugal, it’s whimsical, airy, organic and in a colour palette we highly approve of. Homewares, accessories and clothing for babies, kids and women too. Hand down, delicious.
Lal & Nil
The sweetest family business bringing you the sweetest playmats, cot quilts and a whole range of gorgeous mama and babywear.
Everything is either made from cardboard or a paper-based material. DIY kits for doll’s houses, swings, bunting and even surfboards. You’ll love this as much as your kids do – we promise you!
