Don’t these pretty photos just make you long for summer?! (I am already counting down the days!). Anna Teisen, the London-based designer behind the children’s brand, Annaliv, sent over these photos of her gorgeous new ‘Scandinavian Summer’ collection, and I’m loving the look of everything. Until now, Annaliv specialised in blazers, bibs, and rucksacks, all mostly for boys. I’m really excited to see her new collection expand to include more pieces for both boys and girls, still featuring her beautiful in-house designed prints and fabrics.
The new Annaliv collection is inspired by traditional cross stitch & embroidery, Danish blue seas & long open beaches. The storytelling print of the season, as featured in the first two photos, is made from sea chart maps of Annas favourite Danish islands where she spent her summers as a child (I love that!). Extra detail is brought into the collection from traditionally woven ribbon from Sweden & printed handmade embroidered designs, as featured in the last two photos.
Everything in the collection is made here in Britain in traditional tailoring factories and printing mills. I love that while it’s inspired by Scandinavian summers, the collection still feels very British. And while the pieces are quite traditional in style, they’ve been given a modern twist perfect for our modern kiddos.
