Little Duckling for SS13 beautiful nostalgic childrenswear

by Scandinavian mum

It is fun to follow a designer developing, impressing every season with yet another fantastic collection. Little Duckling is such a brand. Consistently delivering high quality children’s wear for a growing amount of devoted customers around the world. Famous for a range of nostalgic girls dresses, Little Duckling have for this season made a broad collection for the boys as well. And everything about it is just right, from the colour palette of pale shades combined with strong primary colours, prints and button details to a few unisex key pieces. And yes -we love the dresses by Little Duckling for Spring Summer 2013 too, that will take you from daywear to more formal occasions. We’ve also completely fallen for the fish print seen on everything from tees and dresses to the behind of cute little baby and toddlers leggings. If we’ll manage to get hold of it when it reaches the stores, the darling 30’s style girls with fish print is high up on our wish list for next summer.

This is a collection we’ll expect to see in many fashionable independent stores around the UK from early Spring 2013.

Did you manage to get hold of a Little Duckling piece in John Lewis this season? This Scandinavian Fashion brand was picked up by John Lewis for SS12, and is currently on sale. Will be exciting to see if they’ll continue the label next season.

The collection will also be available online from the Little Duckling online shop.

Bubble London June 2012 {Trends and Preview} for SS13

by Scandinavian mum

Bubble London first day was hectic with a great buzz and lots of visitors throughout the day. It was indeed a very positive and enthusiastic atmosphere in the Business Design Centre. Exactly what’s needed, so a well done to the Bubble team!
Noticeable was the presence of the “Homegrown” brands, with Bubble London giving the British Fashion industry some extra support and thumbs up. Very appropriate considering happenings like the Jubilee and the Olympics this year but also from a environmentally point of view, supporting local economy and reducing our carbon footprint. Still Bubble London is quite an international event with a significant number of influential French, Spanish, American and Australian brands presenting their coming SS13 collections in London.
The most striking trend for SS13 is probably the use of nostalgic styles with an array of colours that combined creates such a reassuring and positive feeling. Important for SS13 is buy quality, choose timeless and unisex, hand down and upcycle.
Considering what we saw on display in Islington today I think for 2013 we’ll have a bright and sunny Summer ahead of us.

Little Scandinavian was on the judging panel of the “Bubble London Stand Out Award SS13”. A lot of the exhibitors had done a tremendous effort in creating an inspirational stand so it was a very hard decision. But we landed on a very playful and creative stand with a great attention to detail, reflecting the brands vision and products and in general really standing out!
A big well done and congratulations to Indikidual! Your stand was a firm favourite among all the judges!

Runners up were Little Troll and Rock N’ Regal both very different but inspirational stands. Photo by Bubble Blog

With a bright and playful Spring Summer 2012 collection Little Duckling is now available in John Lewis, both at their flagship London store in Oxford Street and John Lewis online
We are very excited to see a fairly new independent brand like Little Duckling being picked up by a leading UK department store. We congratulate Rosa and her team!
