To celebrate the launch of our new Kickle collection for girls (aged 2-13 years) we have asked 6 of our favourite trend-spotters to put the collection to the test. Siobhán Mallen is the Fashion Consultant and senior editor at Grazia magazine, she styled up our Kickle Hugs ‘n’ Kisses dress to create a girly tomboy look for her daughter Scarlett.
Read on for more of Siobhán’s styling notes.
Siobhán Mallen on creating the right look for kids
“Scarlett has a very clear idea of what she likes to wear. Namely bright colours, clashing prints and nothing too girly or “fancy”. This aesthetic doesn’t always tally up with my dream of her dressing like a chic french child! This outfit though, we both loved; Scarlett was mad for the funky kiss print dress (kiss prints are “not girly” apparently…) and with the addition of the classic striped sweater, denim jacket and timeless Ben Simon pumps I got my Parisien jeane fille too!”
Sweet, our fashion illustration of Siobhán and Scarlet’s look!
Nothing says fun like a bubble dress! Made from lightweight cotton with a silky lining, this piece will be comfortable to wear in the heat of the summer and will look fantastic worn to garden parties and barbecues. (Also available in ‘Galaxy’ print).
Don’t just save this dress for best!
“Just add ballet pumps to this head turning dress, for the perfect summer party outfit – the simple shape lets the fab kiss print really sing. But don’t just save it for best; dressed down with a clashing striped sweater, canvas pumps and a classic denim jacket this fab frock will be just as big a hit at the playground as it will at lunch with Granny.”
We love how Siobhán Mallen chose a boy’s D&G denim jacket to give our super girly buble dress an exciting new edge.
