H&M’s first store in Puerto Rico opens to excited customers After months of anticipation, the first H&M store in Puerto Rico, located in The Mall of San Juan, has finally opened its doors. More than 1400 H&M fans lined up for over seven hours to be the first inside the new store when it opened at noon on June 9th.

As part of H&M’s Garment Collecting initiative, excited customers who brought in garments to donate were entered to win up to $1,000 in gift cards. “We are thrilled with the amazing response we have had from our customers here. This enthusiasm makes us feel part of the local community”, said Kulle. “We look forward to offering even more quality fashion at the best price to the people of Puerto Rico through our continued expansion here.” “Seeing H&M arrive in San Juan is truly an exciting and important moment for the people of Puerto Rico,” said Joan Smalls. “I couldn’t be more excited to be back home to help celebrate this amazing opening!” H&M will continue to grow on the island with a second store at Plaza del Sol located in Bayamon in the fall of 2016.

Tips FOR CHILDREN’S CLOTHES

S

ummer is here and it is time to dress your children in comfortable and cooling clothes that are as bright as the weather. It is hard to not be drawn into a children’s clothing store this season—this summer, it is about peppy colours, interesting prints and inspirations from the surf culture and vintage pieces. While these trends will make any parent’s eyes gleam with excitement, shopping clothes for children can be a challenge. Therefore, here are some tips for mums and dads out there who are looking to shop the latest summer trends for their children.

1

Purchase clothes made from natural materials such as cotton and linen— they are naturally cooling and kinder to children’s skin. Avoid synthetic materials as much as possible. They are more likely to be harsher to your child’s young skin which will lead to various allergic reactions.

2

Choose health and comfort before style and fashion. Clothing labels con-

tain important information about the garments so do not ignore them. Make

136 MAY/JUN 2016

sure that the clothes are safe for your child and practical for them to wear. Gladiator sandals are chic to wear but if it restricts the way your child move, it could pose a threat. 3D appliques add personality to the garment but if your child feels uncomfortable with it, do not force them to wear it.

3

Always factor in your children’s opinion —after all, they are the ones

who will be wearing the clothes. Allow them to choose what they want to wear and advise them on it. If there is a particular piece that you like, ask them to try it on but leave the purchasing decision for them. This will help them boost their self-esteem while teaching them about making responsible choices and negotiation. It will also keep them happy.

4

If you are looking to purchase sunglasses for your children, make sure

that the material is safe and that it provides the best amount of eye-protection. Find a pair that provides 99%–100%

UVA and UVB protection—this will ensure that your child’s eyes are protected from harmful rays. Also, look out for bigger lenses—the more skin covered, the better. It is also important to remember that your children run, trip, fall and bounce when they play; therefore, their sunglasses should be as durable as they are active. Not only are plastic lenses safer, they are also lighter. The frames should bendable to allow comfort but not easily breakable.

5

Last but not least, remember that they are children. While they may

have a penchant for beautiful clothes, your children may prefer simplicity and comfort above anything else. They do not need to wear couture while they are out playing with their friends at the playground or on the beach. It is also important to keep them cool in summer to avoid any unwanted heat stroke! Now that you are armed with these tips, good luck and have fun shopping with your children!

TRADE FAIR PLAYTIME PARIS

Sticking to its course, Playtime has just achieved a

NEW RECORD!

At the dawn of its 20th edition, Playtime Paris chose the theme of ‘Marvelous’ for its gathering of professionals from the children’s and maternity universes.

T

his 19th edition gathered over 500 collections (+11% more than last winter), two thirds of which came from abroad, covering all of the children’s and maternity universes (71 % children’s fashion, 21% design and layette, 8% maternity). Around one hundred brands exhibited at Playtime for the first time, and for some of them, it was the launch of their very first children’s collection (à l’ombre les enfants, carrousel & bazaar, dancing in the grass, de cavana, gosaoaky, howlin, minois paris, wynken, see concept, sawa shoes, sways,... ). Exceptionally, the trade fair started one day later (from Sunday to Tuesday) in order to allow some of our visitors to organize back-to-back visits with Playtime and Pitti Bimbo in Florence, Italy. This shift resulted in a whopping 2684 visitors on Sunday January 24, an alltime record number of attendees for one day. In all, over three days, the fair had 7457 professional visitors. In spite of the recent events that pushed numerous visitors, particularly from Asia and North America, to cancel their trip to France, we noted a strong increase in foreign visitors for a rise of 8 points over January 2015 (57% vs. 49%), thereby surpassing, for the first time ever, the percentage of French buyers. Well anchored in the international scene for several seasons now, Playtime thus became the most international European professional trade fair, an undeniable advantage in a difficult national economic context. In terms of details, European buyers made up the top contingent of visitors, in front of the French, the Asians and the Americans. And, although their

144

MAY/JUN 2016

numbers were smaller, several prestigious sales points in the Middle East and Australia were also present. Finally, thanks to a strong communication campaign and continuous prospection efforts, the trade fair managed to attract a high proportion of new buyers, representing just as many development opportunities for the exhibitors. Beyond sheer numbers, this edition will also go down as a formidable source of inspiration for professionals, who were able to discover: • The 3 children’s trend spaces put together by our trend-setter Julie Malait which presented the themes of ‘Winter Wonderland’, ‘Frozen Landscapes’ and ‘Surreal utopia’ designed, respectively, by artists Odette Picaud, Brigitte Amarger, and Hélène B. Caperna. • A selection of accessories from Marie-Claire Enfant Magazine presented in vitrines in the 2 rest areas of the fair. • The winners of 4 prizes given by the editors of Milk magazine (the Best Fashion prize for wolf & rita, the Shoes prize for pom d’api, the Design prize to camomile london and the Must-Have prize

for the combination of fox prints from hello simone). • The Carlin trend office contributed a detailed spotlight on the ‘Textures’ that future mothers will be wearing, in the trend space designed by artist Zoé Landry situated in that sector of the show.

The Sleeping Beauty Sun shines over the kingdom as the announcement of a new Royal. Princess Aurora is praised as one of the fairest in the land as she is shown to the royal court for the first time in the dramatic pink damask beauty “And they Called Her Aurora” dress. This dress symbolizes a great new era to the kingdom with spring blossoming along with her birth. Aurora grows into a beautiful young woman and over the years many forget about the curse that has been bestowed on her because of her ethereal beauty and wonderful gentleness. Upon her 16th birthday, as promised by the evil fairy, she falls into the deep sleep of her curse. Aurora wears the “The Sleeping Beauty” dress; a wondrous enchantment in itself with tiered tulle and handmade embroidery is the essence of style and grace, as she lies waiting to be awoken. After many years of slumber, a prince comes to finally save her from endless sleep with the “Love’s First Kiss” dress, a beautiful statement of love with pleated tulle and flower embroidery not to be matched by anyone in the kingdom, including Maleficent. Of course, Maleficent is not pleased that the beauty, Aurora has been awoken and in turn battles the young prince for awakening her! The “It’s Maleficent” dress almost overcomes, but Aurora prevails alongside her prince with the “Hail to the Queen “dress when she blossoms into the woman she was always meant to be! Aurora and her prince go on to rule the kingdom and are loved by all, living happily ever after. The Mischka Aoki Spring/Summer collection 2016 was inspired by the story of Aurora, who fell to a horrible enchantment but overcame her enemies to bloom into a beautiful woman. Using crystal beads, embroidered French lace, Jacquard, Brocade, specialized pleated tulle and many of the finest materials for the finest of little Queens, this collection is bold, yet feminine, in a modern way. The signature exquisite dresses shine with magnificent embroidery and Swarovski crystals that serves as a reminder of style and beauty in an enchanted kingdoms.

The

Lollipop Boutique

A

nnie St-Pierre, designer and owner of Lollipop Boutique is among those successful women who followed her dream & succeed to achieve whatever she had in mind! It was after her daughter Sandrine’s birth, while she was on maternity leave, the idea of opening this boutique started. Her European friends also helped her notice the lack of variety in child clothes offered around Quebec city in Canada. Her 10 years experience in the clothing industry was another motivation factor to push her forward for putting her experience to profit. So she decided to make the jump! “Everything seemed in place for the success of this project so I couldn’t simply ignore a challenge like that,” Annie says.

So is born Boutique Lollipop! Boutique Lollipop is above all a high end clothing boutique.

A

dog is a man’s best friend, and a stuffed toy is a child’s best friend. Mimmo, the youngest of three Labrador companions of the Dolce&Gabbana family has had puppies. Animal lovers Stefano Gabbana and Domenico Dolce have given Mimmo a very special gift for his birthday (posterity) and created a tiny Mimmo for each and every dog lover out there. Stefano Gabbana’s fluffy companion has been transformed into a cuddly toy which will fill with joy any child’s, or dog lover’s heart!

years and is the inspiration for a soft toy which takes the name #mimmothedog on his Instagram profile. This toy is part of the Dolce&Gabbana children’s collection and was created for all little dog-lovers. In beige, Mimmo always has his collar, which has his name inscribed, and is always by his kennel: a little yellow house with a red roof, created from and inspired by children’s drawings. Mini Mimmo is available to buy in stores and online, and comes with his own little house, and collar, both exact replicas of the real Mimmo’s prized possessions.

The Curated

Children’s Wardrobe M

ost parents should plead guilty of these first world problems. Guilty of collecting mountains of clothes for their children. Guilty of staring into their children’s bloated wardrobe and say “My baby has nothing to wear.” Guilty of dressing their children in a garment only once. But really, who can blame them? It is hard for the modern parents to escape the images of children in beautiful clothes. Be it on TV or on their social media feeds, it is hard to shake off the presence of budding fashion icons like Romeo Beckham, Aila Wang, North West and Kingston Rossdale. Any parent would get caught up in ‘who wore what’, the new collections in children’s fashion and the latest ‘must have’ items. Even if you are not a consciously trend-following parent, there is a high chance that you try to keep up with

254

MAY/JUN 2016

what the media is telling you. A curated wardrobe makes life simpler. Some people will roll their eyes or chuckle at this ‘problem’ but your children’s clothes can have a big impact on your life. It may be a small collection at first with one or two additions every other week. Eventually, your children’s clothes will spill over into your wardrobe or the attic. Plus, like any other cluttered wardrobe, the noise it creates will distract you from your main aim: getting your children dressed. Choosing what they would wear each morning should not take much energy—it should be a quick and effortless process. The key concept of a curated wardrobe is simple: only own pieces that truly resonate your personal style, makes you look and feel good, and can be easily mixed and matched. With a minimal amount of clothes, it is eas-

ier to get your wardrobe organized. Dressing up will be easy because everything will make your feel good and confident. Sounds simple? It is. However, there is a ‘but’ when it comes to curating your children’s wardrobe. Children wardrobe curating tips Admittedly, it is a harder task and requires a longer amount of time to complete. This is simply because you children are constantly outgrowing their clothes. They are also still figuring their sense of self, what more their own personal fashion style. It is also harder because you are editing for someone else that may not share the same fashion beliefs. Do not be demotivated. There are some tips that you can abide by when you are curating your children’s wardrobe.


BY NADIA GHAZALI

–This

is truly a case where LESS

REALLY IS

MORE!

Do not purchase an item in anticipation. Children grow at different rates and their body shapes are constantly changing based on their environment. Think twice before snatching that beautiful winter coat in summer—your child may outgrow the coat before winter comes or not be big enough to fill it out. You should also refrain from getting shoes in sizes they are not currently wearing for future use; the shape of your child’s feet may change and the shoes would no longer be comfortable for them to wear. This will lead to clutter and lost the opportunity for clothes that actually fit your children. Take into account what you children likes and dislikes are. We all know that some parents love dressing in ornate garments. Some children love it but if yours keep on fussing over it or blatantly take it off, get rid of it. Take note of what they like to wear and keep their wardrobe stocked with similar items. When they have outgrown these items and they are still wearable, check with your younger children if they would like to have any of them before culling them off to the donation bin.

Chances are that your younger children have been admiring their elder siblings’ clothes. Buy good shoes and keep them to a minimum. Build your child’s footwear collection around a well-made pair of sneakers; these could be the most expensive pair your child has so make sure you plan for this purchase. Depending on where you are living, you children may need to have season-appropriate shoes—a pair for each season will be more than enough. How many clothes do children need? This is hard to estimate—it would probably depend on how often you do the laundry or if your child has a clothing-related skin condition that requires them to change clothes often. Proj-

ect333, a minimalist fashion challenge, contests people to dress with 33 items or less for three months. This would be a great base if you need a guiding number. This is rather generous for a child and while there are many ways you can curate their wardrobe with this number, here is a good list to start with: 10 tops, six bottoms, three pairs of shoes, two sweaters or hoodies, one seasonal jacket and one bathing suit. Now that you know the basics, try it out! Your mornings will be much easier. It is also great if you are trying to encourage your children to dress themselves—they would be more confident in doing so with lesser clothing in the wardrobe. This is truly a case where less really is more.

TRADE FAIR PLAYTIME NEW YORK

A successful first

“SOLO” EDITION

T

his winter, Playtime New York chose to liberate itself from the American trade show calendar and follow the beat of its own drummer. By shifting its dates to mid-February, the organizers felt that they could better address the needs of professionals being pulled in too many directions by trade shows that were either too early or too late in the season. And what better way to show its love for children’s fashion than by choosing to open on Valentine’s day? And that is how 170 children’s brands came together February 14 - 16 at the Metropolitan Pavilion to present their Fall/Winter 2016/17 collections. Which is 13% more compared to last season, ranging from ready-to-wear, accessories, decoration items to gifts, to offer a complete and creative presentation of all the universes of children. In addition to the usual suspects (akid brand, atsuyo et akiko, bacabuche, beau loves, bobo choses, devon’s drawer, everbloom, herschel, jess brown, little creative factory, maá / manuela de juan, misha and puff, nobodinoz, oaks of acorn, oeuf, rose pistol kids, sons + daughters eyewear, tia cibani kids, tinycottons, …), visitors also discovered the 38% of brands exhibiting for the very fi rst time, at Playtime New York, who were attracted by the selective approach of the show’s organizers. Some came from far away to meet the American market (47% were American

Diving into the theme of ‘Marvelous!’, the crème de la crème of buyers and specialized press were able to discover the future trends in the show’s dedicated trend spaces: • The ‘Winter Wonderland’ theme space, designed by artist Tara Linzalone, presented the lush wardrobes of the little queens and kings of the snow. •‘Frozen Landscapes’, designed by artist Alex Hammond, proved to be the ideal setting to highlight subtle mixes of mineral colors and warm and cozy textures. • Finally, creativity was given free reign in the ‘Surreal Utopia’ theme space, designed by Cecilia Elguero, where bright colors and arty patterns were on display. www.taralinzalone.com • www.alexhammondart.com • www. ceciliaelguero.com

brands + 53% came from the rest of the world). 1,947 professional visitors braved the arctic temperatures to attend the show, meaning an increase of 7% and a new record attendance. In detail, the majority of visitors were American (84%), with a strong East Coast showing (87%). The proportion of buyers/press was maintained and refl ected a level of quality that guaranteed rich interactions amongst professionals.

In order to inspire buyers, but also act as a brand consultant, Playtime also proposed, in collaboration with its partner Earnshaw’s, a conference on the theme of the Mobile Revolution. www.earnshaws. com

And finally, to leave visitors with pleasant memories of these three days, Babiekins and Kid’s Wear invited visitors to be photographed in a vintage photo booth, or in front of the poetic panels illustrated by Elsa Dray-Farges. www.kidswear-department.com • www.babiekinsmag.com


PLAYTIME TOKYO

BOOSTED

by the international activity

S

taying true to a concept that is rather unique in Japan, the fair brought together brands from across the children’s and maternity universes, representing fashion, accessories, gifts, layette and design, in a warm and pleasant work environment. Next to the ‘regulars’ (aden + anais, anaïs & i, arch & line, bobo choses, easy peasy, emu Australia, isabella oliver, herschel supply,…), many brands were participating for the very fi rst time at Playtime Tokyo, attracted by the opportunity to get introduced to the Japanese market. A choice that proved to be a good investment, as visitors were very receptive and did not hesitate to place their first orders. In fact, the editorial staff of Milk Japon ended up giving their Milk Prizes only to brands who were participating at the fair for the very first time: Best

Fashion to motoreta, Best Design to nailmatic kids, and Editor’s Choice to sways. The winds of change also blew over the visitor statistics, refl ected by a strong increase in international visitors. Though the majority of visitors remained Japanese (91%), the percentage of foreign visitors (lead by South Korea, Taiwan, China and Hong Kong) enjoyed an extraordinary +73% rise over last season! A shift that crowns the efforts of the organizers to grow the event beyond the Japanese borders. Overall, the fair established a new record with 2,994 professional visitors, for a double increase of +12% over last August and +23% over February 2015. The principal buyers were out in force (department stores and multi-brand shops), as was the cream of the specialized press. All were able to take in the forecasts of

the coming trends presented on video by trend-setter Julie Malait, as well as in the three trend spaces at the fair. Visitors could soak up the royal allure of the ‘Winter Wonderland’ trend in a setting illustrated by artist Kaori Kato; the sober and natural ‘Frozen Landscapes’ trend in a setting imagined by artist Aurélie Mathigot; and the unbelievable style that emanated from the ‘Surreal Utopia’ setting designed by David Takahashi. www.geocities.jp/kaorikato555 • www.aureliemathigot.com • davidtakahashi.amebaownd. com

And, since one never works as well as when one is also having fun, while the little ones were welcomed by the workshop of Abi Loves illustrated by Akiko Kawamura, the big ones were able to dive into the poetic universe of Elsa Dray Farges in front of the lens of Kid’s Wear Magazine. abiloves.com • www.kidswear-department.com • elsadray-farges.com

osan Bosch Studio has designed a new holistic learning environment for the KG area at Liceo Europa in Zaragoza, Spain. The dynamic learning environment is designed in detail with a focus on supporting the educational institution’s applied pedagogy ‘Multiple Intelligences’, based on a unique concept design that accommodates children’s need to learn & develop based on a combination of different learning styles. Rosan Bosch Studio has designed challenging custom-made furnishings in different learning zones with room for the individual student to facilitate differentiated learning in a kinder garden, where the physical space is one of the most important tools for educational development. Instead of a classic classroom setup with desks and chairs, a landscape consisting of a cave in a big mountain, a valley and sand dunes where toys and books can be stored & a desert with flexible furnishing now form the setting for many different types of formal and informal learning situations.

The

Water Project

Nearly one billion people worldwide lack access to safe drinking water.

N

early one billion people worldwide lack access to safe drinking water. Dirty water causes illnesses such as diarrhea and typhoid. Diarrhea alone kills 1.8 million children each year. Unsafe water causes a cycle of sickness and poverty. It is very sad to know that the poorest people in the world actually pay some of the world’s highest prices for drinking water, and the water they get is less clean and less plentiful. the poor pay more in the form of lost time, health, education, and life, but also in monetary terms. More than any other factor, water scarcity keeps the “BOTTOM BILLION” entrapped in a cycle of extreme poverty. In the end all of humanity pays the price. The GOOD NEWS is that it DOESN’T HAVE TO BE THIS WAY! Let’s start with an example, People living in the slums of Nairobi, Jakarta, and Manila actually pay 5 to 10 times more for water than those in high income areas of those same cities. They even pay more than consumers in London or New York. The poorest 20 percent of households in El Salvador and Nicaragua spend on average more than 10 percent of their household income on water. In the U.S. the median household spends only 1.1 percent of its income on water and sewage. For the poorest of the poor, the water bill may be the world’s most retrogressive tax—on life itself. Infant mortality is highest where

clean water access is lowest. Infant mortality is highest where clean water access is lowest. Every year 1.8 million children die from diarrhea, far more than armed conflict and terrorism combined. Picture a pre-school classroom blowing up every six minutes, day and night. The irony is that high infant mortality increases population. Demographers call it the “demographic-economic paradox.” Elderly people in extreme poverty depend on their children for sustenance in old age. When people know some of their offspring will die, others will move away, and some will not be able help, they tend to have more children. So it is that India’s former minister of population, Karan Singh, coined the phrase, “development is the best contraceptive.” Studies show that access to safe water reduces child death rates by more than 20 percent in Uganda. In Peru a toilet in the home reduces infant death by more than 30 percent. The world over, the people with lowest reproduction rates are those who know their babies are not going to die. In Sub-Saharan Africa alone, 40 billion hours a year are spent mostly by women—just hauling water. That’s equivalent to a year’s labor for the entire workforce of France. The result, known as “time-poverty,” affects women and

girls most. About half the girls in Sub-Saharan Africa who drop out of primary school do so because of poor water and sanitation. At any given time close to half of the people in the developing world are suffering from one or more of the diseases associated with inadequate water and sanitation.6 Each year, 443 million school days are lost from water-related illness—equivalent to an entire school year for all sevenyear-old children in Ethiopia.7 Lack of education keeps children from getting out of poverty. Lack of water deprives children from education. The payoff for water provision is big.


Every $1 invested in water and sanitation generates on average an $8 return in the form of saved time, increased productivity, and reduced health costs. The long-term benefits of access to clean water would be felt by all of us in the form of decreases in economic aid, increased productivity, lower infant mortality, decreased population burden, increased educational opportunity, and decreased “time poverty”—not

to mention the ethical payoff of giving life to those who most need it. You’re not alone if you had never fully contemplated how lack of water keeps people in poverty. The world is only beginning to take a close look at the root causes of extreme poverty. Almost two in three people lacking access to clean water survive on less than $2 a day. One in three lives on less than $1 a day.9 Their world and their challenges are foreign to us. Dripping taps in rich countries lose more water than is available to the poorest billion people on earth.10 It’s no surprise we’ve never put ourselves in their shoes and fully under-

stood how water scarcity perpetuates this cruel cycle of poverty. The good news is that there is more than enough water in the world for domestic purposes, agriculture, and industry. And the payoff for its more equitable distribution is great. Gary Evans from LWI (The Water Project’s partner organization) puts it this way, “We’re in a world where there are 900 million people barely treading water, and the water’s too low for them to reach the ladder. They don’t need a boat. They don’t need a helicopter to rescue them. They just need a little boost so they can reach the ladder. Then they can climb out on their own. Clean water provides that boost.” And if you want to reach out and give that boost, then you’re in the right place. The Water Project is a 501(c)(3) organization that’s bringing relief to communities around the world who suffer needlessly from a lack of access to clean water. The organization currently funding water wells, rain catchment systems, latrines, community mobilization, and sanitation and hygiene training in Africa and India. The Water Project’s work is a cooperative, grass-roots effort between its supporters, donors, partners in the field, and the communities it serves. They follow-up with local communities, helping to ensure long-term success. Then, through innovative web tools, it shows everyone the outcome, every time! The Water Project teams with implementing partners in the field to dig wells or construct other systems to provide clean, safe water to thirsty communities. When a community, church, or school receives a new water project, women no longer spend hours searching for a source of water. Children, especially girls, return to school. Water-borne illnesses are reduced. Hope is restored. Let’s join the organization today, Even a small donation can make a big difference! Let’s help those who are really in need of clean water & sanitation, help them to relieve from various diseases & to help children to go to school! Good living is their right too! We support this organization & we would like to invite you to support them too! See you there: www.thewaterproject.org
