  • Sunuva, where were you when I needed you?

    Sunuva is a luxury children’s swimwear brand I discovered recently and immediately feel in love with.  The designs are colourful, tasteful, stylish and at the same time maintain the charm and innocence of how kidswear should be.

    For girls who embrace beach chic, bold watermelon and tropical prints are sure to make a statement, while those who are more whimsical will adore the boho-inspired and Mexican folk prints. For boys, intrepid explorers will love the camo star, toucan and crocodile prints inspired by the jungles of Costa Rica, whilst classic linens and chic Riviera prints are a must for snappy dressers. The collection also boasts a range of stunning accessories including cool caps, pretty espadrilles and beach bags, as well an expanded sizing range with selected prints now available for babies aged 3-6 months.

    Gone are the days of horrid navy or black protection suits that made my kids loathed wearing and for a very good reason….

  • Hey!

    It’s been in my wardrobe for many years - the breton striped t-shirt. A perfect basic, classic, easy to combine and a strong history.

    The traditional breton striped shirt in fine knit with a 3/4 sleeve or longer, a boat neck and has 21 navy and white stripes. Each stripe represents one of Napoleon’s victories.

    The Breton stripe was designed for French sailors - The stripe to help find sea-men who fell overboard. It then went on to be officially added to the uniform of the French marines.

    The legend that is Coco Chanel then got involved. She fell in love with the look of the sailors (would ya blame her?!) and was often seen wearing the stripes and added them into her collections. This was in the 60’s with the likes of icons such as Marilyn Monroe, Jackie O, Brigette Bardot and Picasso often spotted donning stripes - today a wardrobe staple.
