THIS MINI ME RANGE IS BURSTING WITH COLOUR, BOWS AND SEQUINS
When was the last time you were excited to wear your outfit for the day? If the answer is rarely, you should take a leaf out of the children’s fashion book.
For a toddler, having the option to wear something that brightens their mood can turn the traditional morning tantrum into enthusiasm for the adventures ahead.
Cue Bonita Bambino’s adorable new range of childrenswear, boasting bright colours, durable materials and comfortable styles.
“Bonita Bambino is essentially wearable art,” designer Kristian Williams says.
“Because the range is colourful and bright, kids are drawn to it. It definitely makes for an easier morning when you’re getting the little ones ready. They love it.”
While fashionable Insta-babies in designer outfits are trending on social media, practicality and individuality is key for growing children in the real world.
“It’s important to dress children in wellmade and fun clothing because it stands the test of time, and isn’t something that should ever be thrown out after a season,” Kristian says. “Bonita Bambino has been designed in styles and cuts that allow for long-term, multi-age wear, so that kids can get longevity out of their dress, kaftan or board shorts
“The children’s clothing market is saturated with very tonal, natural colours at the moment, and that’s not for me.
“Give me colour, big bows, sequins and painterly motifs any day.” But why should children have all the fun? Luckily for grown ups, Bonita Bambino is inspired by the original Bonita range of adults’ clothing, featuring lively patterns in kaftans, dresses, skirts and pants.
“I wanted to create pieces that were an extension of our adult ranges,” Kristian says.
“I have created mini versions of adult pieces, so that mummy and daughter can wear matching outfits, and the cutest boardshorts for boys.
“I have been told that there is no other children’s brand quite like ours in the market, and I think that’s why it is doing so well.”
