The schoolbag of the week #2

Here is as each week (since last week ;-) ) the Schoolbag of the Week : a few links I haven't had time to explore in detail but which deserve to be shared.

In my School bag this week a reference of the DIY : and its thousands different fabrics, from the more affordable to the more luxuous, around children universe but not only. If you have magical hands, iy's for you !

Fabrics, so, but also leather : the French leather used by Paskap to create its little babies shoes. A place to visit before each birth gift !


And we finish in beauty and in softness with Mum & Dad Factory, the French brand of design furnitures and their creations as simple as beautiful !

Happy week-end !

Their collections enjoy and add a poetic touch to everyday life, and make our houses original, for ten years. In the same time they have helped dozens of young and talented artists to publish their works.
The official announce is to read on their website.
I didn't had the fortune to meet Pascale & Fabrice but I wanted to thank them for their work and to wish them a nice trip through their new adventures. You will miss to our landscape...

A taste of spring thanks to Il Gufo

T-Shirt Il Gufo Spring Summer 2015

It's a debut of collection which nicely smells the spring : the flowered t-shirts from Il Gufo discovered on SMALLable (which supplies for the first time the Italian band) are indeed evocative of a softness and a lightness warmly welcomed in this end of January.
A beautiful sign of the nice days to come, full of flowers and carefree !

A new selection will be published each friday and we start today with :

A ray of sunshine: Billieblush SS15

Billieblush Spring Summer 2015

Need a smile this morning after the French events so I've chosen to talk about Billieblush which is undoubtedly one of the most cheerful brand of children fashion. Their new collection Spring Summer 2015 is just arrived in store beside the winter sale.
Tones are softest than usual, as if they already had a patina, which participates to the retro tone of the collection. Billieblush has the talent to recreate the lightness and the fanciful of the 50's, adding modern touches in the details or the games of superpositions.
These charming clothes are as a ray of sunshine !
