Photo: petitHOOD

Andrea wears a black shirt by BB+++. Subtlety of color and asymmetry of buttons: the secret recipe for a stylish shirt. Blake, deceptively for the "quiet child", has a very graphic cut to combine with a simple jeans.

Barbara Berrada

Barbara is a poet, an artist whose Magic touches everything she seems to look at. She takes us on a personal and magical universe. In front of her work, I am still a child who asks for more. I show there a little assortment of what she is capable..... The nicest photo series I have seen for a while.
Check her site here.

Rød nese dagen

Rødnesedagen is a different kind of fundraiser. Throughout November, you can put on your red nose and do funny, silly and trifling thing to raise funds for Redd Barna.
I found a beautiful picture of the photographer Sophie Delaporte as a small poetic contribution to the 29th of November.
Sophie or a dreamlike world with vivid colors. She loves playful scenography and honors the surrealist movement with her recurrent fantastic characters.


Ola&Olek is a newly launched UK-based line from designer Eliza Lopatowska. She gets inspired from her native Poland and her little cousins to create a delicately touching line of organic tees and retro dresses & cardigans. The collection aims to seduce "über-parents" with very individual taste in design who are looking for designer children's clothing with a unique charm and appeal.
The identity of this well put together brand is very strong and charming, find online at
