KIDS’ FASHION: Mint Velvet’s Debut Kids’ Clothing Range
Womenswear brand Mint Velvet have taken a brilliant and exciting step into kidswear. The collection, called Mintie, is set to launch this autumn and will be a selection of mini-me pieces. We’ve been told to think ‘cute, stylish and modern’. Expect animal motifs, slogans and girl details.
SUPPORT: NSPCC AT WILD & GORGEOUS
Kids’ fashion brand Wild & Gorgeous have designed a girls’ dress and top in aid of the NSPCC. All profits from both pieces, which make perfect party-wear, will be donated to the children’s charity. The glittering star design on the dress and t-shirt spearheads the NSPCC ‘Lighting up Christmas for Children’ campaign, which helps to give children the brighter future they deserve.

STROLLER: Silver Cross Reflex Aston Martin Edition
Say hello to the latest Silver Cross collaboration with the iconic Aston Martin. Is this stroller the peak of pushchair luxury? We think it is. The wheels were inspired by the Aston Martin DB11, while luxury and comfort are synonymous with the Silver Cross brand. The pushchair is lightweight (55kg) and suitable from birth to 25kg. If this isn’t a first-class ride for baby, we don’t know what is.
BABYWEAR: Emile et Rose
Emile et Rose is our new go-to for baby gifting. The Devon-based brand provide thoughtfully designed and complete outfits for babies. The collections are made up of pastel blues and pinks; the pieces are all super soft and super comfortable. The AW18 collection features some lovely floral prints and some deep red pieces which are getting us all thinking about Christmas!
