Gap launched their Casting Call 2015 a few days ago! This incredibly popular contest celebrates kids being kids, by inviting parents to submit photos of their children for the chance to be featured in a GapKids or babyGap marketing campaign.  This year, as part of the submission process, parents can create a playful, animated video that captures their child’s unique personality and can be shared with friends and family to spread the word about the contest.

Junk Food comes out with the best designs with original and quirky touches each and every year and I’m always sure to purchase a few pieces from their collaboration with Gap. Keith Haring & Jean-Michel Basquiat are two artists Gap and Junk Food have always had an affinity for. They were both born out of the streets and with naive styles they were able to tell very complex narratives with the perspective that art is to be shared and enjoyed by everyone. Keith Haring has such a signature line style from which they have chosen iconic elements while bringing more […] Continue reading →

It was bound to happen. When Rebecca Minkoff, the infamous bag designer became a mother for the first time, I knew we were in for a treat. She dipped her toes in the maternity market when she partnered with Bravado on their limited edition nursing tank collection and just recently released a maternity collection for A Pea in the Pod. It’s funny because I was just interviewed by Metro New York on the upcoming maternity trends and Minkoff touched on many of them with this collection. Graphic tees with cute sayings are in this season. It’s not something we’ve seen […] Continue reading →

ColourCheck: Proof, Johan Flodin

IKEA has recalled 169,000 of their VYSSA style crib mattresses with the following five model names: VACKERT, VINKA, SPELEVINK, SLÖA and SLUMMER. The involved mattresses were manufactured on May 4, 2014 or earlier. An identification label attached to the mattress cover has the date of manufacture in Month-DD-YYYY format and the VYSSA model name. A gap between the mattress and crib ends larger than two finger width is an indication of the defective mattress. The firm has received two reports of infants becoming entrapped between the mattress and an end of the crib. The children were removed from the gap […] Continue reading →

Alphabet Photography Let Them Be

First off, I love the name of this collection! It’s so fitting and so perfect especially when you’re dealing with children as your subject. Celebrity Photographer Jennifer Blakeley recently released her highly anticipated photography collection this week titled “Let Them Be” artistically depicting young children laughing, being silly, and exhibiting genuine emotion. The collection comes as a response to Blakeley’s frustration in observing society, through the use of social media pressuring parents to push their children to be better, do more, act older and just grow up too quickly. “Sometimes, we just need to let kids be kids. Let them […] Continue reading →
