Mothercare has collaborated with French fashion label Calisson to produce The. Most. Adorable range of beautiful baby clothes called – appositely – Little Royals. Darling little pink and blue cardigans; Liberty print shoes and bloomers; cashmere blankets. All available as of today in sizes newborn to nine months. Okay, it’s not the cheapest (prices range from £35 for the Liberty pram shoes) – but the quality is high end and anything from this collection would be the perfect present for a new little person; something you would keep forever (I can see those booties in a box frame). Each item comes swathed in tissue paper – so the gift-wrapping is done for you.
I went to a baby shower yesterday – a very stylish affair (appositely enough, given that my friend Lynda is a fashion stylist) – and whilst I could have taken something sensible, opted instead for a grey cashmere all-in-one from M&S. Totally impractical, but delicious – and not something you would buy yourself. (Of course not, it’s ridiculous.) This collaboration is the same: all about adorable non-necessities.
Enough words. Feast your eyes on the sweetness.
