Through Annaliv’s children’s wear collection for Spring Summer 2016 you can discover the laid-back living as it’s inspired by Summers spent in rural countryside and picturesque coastal towns of Scandinavia.
The designer behind Annaliv, Anna Teisen is half danish and spends her Summers in their family holiday house in Møn, Denmark. Møn’s Klint, to the south of Zealand, is one of Denmark’s most beautiful nature experiences. The light chalk cliff rises more than 100 meters vertically towards the sky and make a dramatic end to the otherwise gentle landscape. Summers in Møn offers a peaceful setting in beautiful surroundings with open land, long white sandy beaches and quint little charming villages.
But Anna has wanderlust and likes to draw inspiration from all over Scandinavia. Returning for Summer 2016, this time Annaliv presents the best of Swedish country charm. With prints and colours that evoke childhood memories of sailing in the Swedish lakes and lazy afternoons spent fishing, this collection is about living a life straight out of a Carl Larsson painting.
In typical Nordic colours the Annaliv collection features splashes of coral, with blush pink against watery blues and greys. Reflecting the deep Swedish connection with the land and nature, hints of pastel green also adorn some of the traditional Annaliv organic cotton pieces, and are complimented by the traditional nordic ribbon specially woven there.
With matching bloomers and booties for lazy summer days, and the return of our favourite knapsacks in new colours and prints, this collection is the essence of a very Swedish summer.
Among our favourites are the Tilda skirt, fully lined and featuring deep pockets for treasures found on the beach. Best when matched with the sleeveless blouse and matching hairband. We love the nostalgic 50’s touch to this set which we think she’ll love to wear on holiday. See more and buy the collection online from annaliv.co.uk
I will probably to a separate post on Møn – look out for this in the near future! Meanwhile, head to Visit Denmark to find out more!
