Winter Style | Kids Jackets & Gumboots from Squidkids
Congratulations to Bridget Agnew! Please visit www.squidlondon.nz/shop and let me know which jacket you’d like by emailing me, melissa (at) thebestnest.co.nz
Ok, so we all know there is an abundance of amaze, stylish, totally fabulous and gah-I’m-envious-of-that-kids-style clothes out there for our littles these days. But……it does tend to get a tad repetitive and a wee bit unoriginal as every small startup churns out their monochrome capsule collection, dripping with cool but we’ve seen it all before right?
I love colour. In my home. In my wardrobe and on my kids. Colour is fun and fearless. Just like kids.
One company doing colour right is SquidKids. Founded by two super-creative London College of Fashion graduates, Squid’s first gig was to design and produce a range of colour changing umbrellas for the Tate Modern Gallery and the duo (Emma-Jayne and Viviane) have since worked with MoMA New York, The British Museum, Nordstrom, Southbank Centre and Art Basel. Culture on your clothes. I love it.
As a result of these genius collabs, SquidKids was born and their range of colour changing kids jackets, umbrellas, boots and bags is now available in New Zealand! Yus!
Nixie was sent the Colour Changing Dino Jacket and colour changing boots to take for a spin and we say….. HECK YES we love SquidKids! The website description omits one tiny factor in the description of the jackets – they are thick and super warm. This is no windbreaker, rather, a high quality, excellent weight jacket with a waterproof finish. That just happens to change colour when it gets wet. No biggie.
Nix loves to watch the colour change on his jacket in the rain, it’s just the best when he can see the drops landing on the dinosaurs and he whispers “here ‘d comes, here ‘d comes!” I die. So cute!
So now you can run along and shop, shop, shop, but before you go, you will want to head over to Facebook and make sure you like The Best Nest and SquidKids because we have 2 of these gorgeous jackets to give away, one boys style and one girls style! I will pick one winner here and one on FB. To enter, just comment below with your choice of boys or girls. Double your chances by entering on FB too! Competition closes June 3rd, 10pm.
