For AW23, we're loving these deep jewel tones giving a fresh take on colour blocking for the autumnal months, mixed in with bold and fun graphic prints across outerwear and sweats. Top left: Bobo Choses Top right: Baby Miss Sunshine Bottom left: Sticky Lemon Bottom right: Toastie Kids.

With a focus on dream like celestial space icons, we're loving this cosmic trend. For a move on from traditional tie dye, galaxy all overs are everywhere...working across both genders giving a unisex feel.
We've picked some of our favourite brands to show off this super fun and playful fashion focus - check out Japanese socks brand Nodal with the acid dye colour ways and Amsterdam based kidswear brand Maed For Mini with cosmic space prints across a variety of product from bucket hats to sweats. We want it all!
The weather is hot here in the UK and the air con companies are busy! When the weather gets hotter the colours get brighter - we are here for it!
Focusing our attention on the latest trends, we have curated a round up of some of our favourite summer picks this season.
The top left outfit is from Bobo choses, we love their fun, bright European aesthetic. Next on the right is a swimwear piece from Catamini, trendy cut out shapes make great statement prints for the poolside.
Down below on the left we have a super fun and vibrant fruit print from Zara, we are loving the new bubble writing that is making an appearance this season. Finally we have this lively striped dress from Stella Cartney, she never disappoints us!
Nordic heritage brand ARKET offer a unique minimalist lifestyle collection and we especially love their latest childrenswear collab with French artist Amélie Fontaine. Celebrating nature and aesthetic expressions, bright and unusual illustrated birds take centre stage of this lovely range.
Kid + Kind always bring the playful quality to fashion. This fun, gender neutral brand uses lovely mark making techniques from stamped shapes to line drawings printed on 100% organic cotton. Their fresh colour combos mixed with their simple prints create unique items for kids who like to play!
One of the coolest kids brands in town has got to be The Animals Observatory. This effortlessly stylish brand is playful, timeless and is inspired by art, architecture and paintings from the 70s. Too cool!

Back at the beginning of July we visited Playtime Paris, which is a great trade show full of amazing kids and baby brands. Here are a few of our favourites...
Bravelings started life as a tights company for boys and have since grown to cover girls and other accessories too. We particularly loved their new range of girls tights with quirky, playful designs.
Amsterdam-based Donsje (Dutch for "fluffy") had the most gorgeous collection of children's shoes and accessories. Our favourites were their little lion booties and matching purse. They also won the Milk magazine X Playtime award for shoes - great work guys!
And last but not least, our absolute favourites Hugo loves Tiki who are so on trend with their gorgeous fruit print. Bold and simple, their prints work for girls and boys of all ages.
