Scandi Mini

Simple but chic children’s clothes can be ludicrously hard to find, especially if you are a parent to boys – which is why when we find a good source of kidswear we are quite evangelical about it. Scandi Mini, founded by Swedish born Gabrielle Spang, celebrates its fifth birthday this year and has become a cult destination for its understated clothes that give a nod to fashion without being too much. There’s a whole raft of new brands this spring – sweet, easy pieces from Luisa et La Luna, Yellowpelota and the adorable French brand Hello Simone (the cotton dresses are to die for). And there are plenty of brands we already know and love too – Oeuf NYC, Bang Bang and Bobo Choses among them. The site’s homewares have a similarly easy, breezy feeling – cloud lamps by A Little Lovely Company, genius felt animal heads by Sew Heart, the most stylish moses baskets we have ever seen and party essentials from the ever-brilliant Meri Meri. We’ve also discovered – via the site – gorgeous organic Enfance soaps which are made with shea butter, coconut oil and soothing essential oils. And unlike everything else, they are perfect for grown-ups too.
