Dear Readers, THE MOON CHILD DIARY is a story of a pure and childlike soul who travels through seven worlds and challenges to reach The Heart of Everything. The story comes to life through our mutual interpretation of the Moon Child. Creating a room where hope and dreams can grow, thrive and blossom seems more important than ever. WHEN THE STORY GROWS WILD All stories have a beginning and an ending, but the truth is that the best stories never end... They continue to live on in the minds of the reader, who then becomes the wonderfully untamable co-narrator of the story. We hope that this issue will be able to do just this; live on and grow wild in your minds, dear readers. WHAT THE FUTURE IS MADE OF We are the future. and even more so - our children are the future. We say: Let them teach us where to go. Our job is to make them believe in what we can accomplish. What we must take on and What challenges are worth overcoming. What is important. What is not. Hope. Togetherness. Dreaming. Helping. Doing. Co-Creating. AN ODE TO THE IMAGINATION The Moon Child Diary is an ode to the imagination and it's ability to move mountains and make

room for life and play. For the Moon Child is all of us. Emotions run through us just as life passes moment by moment. Seek not to withhold. To capture. To cling. Dare to fly. Be Innocent. Impatient. Patient. Loving. Caring. Crazy. Upset. Angry. Whimsical. Pure. Fun. Stupid Playful. Honest. Hopeful. Insisting. Courageous. Wild. Free. Be together. The child that knows we have no heart, will look forever, never to find, what we all dream, big or small or in between, growing up or growing free, hope is where you are me. THE GRAND FINALE Our intention with this very special issue is also to say that it's time for something new. For you and for us. This will be the last issue of Enfants Terribles Magazine in this form. Letting go of our initial shape and letting things happen feels right. It doesn't mean that this is the end for Enfants Terribles Magazine. We actually have no idea what will happen. Except change. Change needs to happen. And then we'll go from there. No sad goodbyes. Happy reading & Thank you for being here. Søs and CÊline

The Moon Child’s Magnificent Movie Marathon by Marieke Das

M

y Moon Child’s movie night is all about space, great costumes and the knowledge that there must be much more out there than meets the eye. Let’s start off with a movie for the young ones, before it’s their bedtime and they can drift off into their own fantasy world waiting in their beds.


I am THE biggest Hayao Miyazaki fan, and Totoro is responsible for that. Although I could write an essay on most of his films and why they are so excellent, Totoro will show you. The sense of family, of being a child, of being one with nature and open to learning from things we do not understand, is just unprecedented (world leaders, take note please). My love for this movie has already been transfered to my kids starting when they were 4 years old. Sure, Ponyo, Spirited, Away and many more are waiting too. Please watch along with your kids, you might learn something – like how to grow trees in one night.

Peter Pan

ET

Yes the 2002 version Return to Neverland is entertaining, and the 1991 movie Hook is even better but to me, nothing beats the 1953 version of Peter Pan. The way the kids get taken out of their beds, the flight, the music… are you there yet? The jealousy of Tinker Bell, the extremely elongated face of Hook – it’s why it’s a classic. It is still so very good. It emphasizes the importance of being a child.

Talk about a moon child! ET and Drew Barrymore? I got nothing to add to that (runs to ask if the kids want to watch ET).

If you don’t want your kids jumping on the bed – don’t watch. Go ahead and grow up if you want to, you silly grown-up.

Bridge to Terabithia

Alice in Wonderland

Based on a great novel, this movie surprised me! The fantasy life of kids is so well dipicted. The story is about Jesse and Leslie, two 12-yearold neighbors who play in a abandoned tree house, and live their fantasy life in a fantasy world, called Terabithia. A must watch for all pre-teens (9 years up), which might be the hardest age group to please!

Although the critics don’t all agree, and maybe you would rather watch Charlie and the Chocolate Factory, this movie is the moonchild’s eye-candy. The costumes, the weird creatures and the colours, they could keep a kid dreaming. And of course Johnny Depp is reason in and of itself to watch this film. He looks extremely weird, but nevertheless....


ENFANTS TERRIBLES MAGAZINE — INSTAGRAM FEATURE

The Neverending story I was in love with Bastian, who reads a book and enters the amazing world of the never ending story. I was even more in love with Atreyu, the Childlike Empress (big girl crush!) and would have traded my whole family for Falkor to be mine. When you rewatch it, it becomes clear that it is actually quite scary and the conversations are difficult to follow for very young kids. Please do and listen to the wise words. Atreyu: I will not die easily. I am a warrior! G’mork: Ha! Brave warrior, then fight the Nothing. Atreyu: But I can’t! I can’t get beyond the boundaries of Fantasia! [G’mork laughs and Atreyu gets a little angry] Atreyu: What’s so funny about that? G’mork: Fantasia has no boundaries. [laughs] Atreyu: That’s not true! You’re lying.

Harry Potter

G’mork: Foolish boy. Don’t you know anything about Fantasia? It’s the world of human fantasy. Every part, every creature of it, is a piece of the dreams and hopes of mankind. Therefore, it has no boundaries.

All of them are great, but start with the first, and don’t watch too young. In this case I definitely suggest reading the books to your kids first. The joy will be even greater.


Labyrinth

The first non-animated movie I saw on the big screen and for which I still have a soft spot for Marty. I watched it with my 8-year-old not too long ago and my 6-year-old boy with the short attention span watched along! They were both as impressed as I was. Go ahead and watch the sequel, too where the future they are back to was in 2015. Funny how that works! Just make sure to watch the first one first! Unfortunately, no good alternative to the hover board yet, although Nike's self-tying shoes exist, they are way too expensive for a Christmas present. Nevertheless, it doesn't matter. The movie is still excellent. Great Scott!

And Jennifer Conolly, what a first class Girl Power Boss she is. The movie says 12 years and older, but mine had already watched it before then. See it yourself again through the eyes of your child and when you feel they are ready enjoy it together.

Mary Poppins/ The Sound of Music/ Narnia/ The wizard of Oz I’m sorry, I just couldn’t stop at 10.

ENFANTS TERRIBLES MAGAZINE — INSTAGRAM FEATURE

Back to the future

Now that mr Moon child himself David Bowie is no longer among us holding the world of science fiction together, we need to keep his memory alive. So teach your kids about him. Show them Labyrinth. Mine loved every slow, old-fashioned-stereotypical-80’s-style-minute of it. And I’m sure yours will too. If not, they need to be re-educated. Really!

WHO IS THE MOONCHILD? Edited by Søs Uldall-Ekman

Children are forever our go-to source for inspiration when creating and exploring new worlds and this time we wanted to get their vision of who or what the Moon Child really is. Children have all the wisdom in the world, if only you remember to ask. Enjoy!


ENFANTS TERRIBLES MAGAZINE — INSTAGRAM FEATURE


Sienna, 10, Copenhagen, Denmark What springs to mind when you hear the name Moon Child? It sounds very special and beautiful. It makes me think of blue. A blue sky. A little girl who stands in the blue sky and a moon.

What is the Moon Child like? She adores teddy bears. She really likes to play with others and sharing the moon with them. She’s sweet but also a little cheeky at times. One time she ran away from home because she wanted to be with the moon. She likes pink and blue and her room is filled with those colours.

What does the Moon Child look like if you were to describe him/ her? She looks delicate and has very blond hair. She’s wearing the most beautiful night gown. She looks to be about 6 years old. She always carries an umbrella with her - even though it’s not raining.

Where does the Moon Child live? She lives in Christiania (ed. a self-proclaimed autonomous neighborhood of about 850 residents, covering 34 hectares (84 acres) in the borough of Christianshavn in the Danish capital Copenhagen)


What special powers does the Moon Child posess? She can see things that others do not see. She stands in the middle of space and watches the spacerockets fly by. She can always see the moon and it is always very close to her and very big.

What makes the Moon Child very happy?

What makes the Moon Child sad? If her parents found out that she was walking by the moon and they forbid her to do so. That would make her very sad.

What scares the Moon Child? She has a very vivid imagination, so ghosts scare her when she’s out alone by the moon.

What kind of a friend is the Moon Child? She’s a good friend, but can also be very stubborn.

Could you be the Moon Child? I couldn’t be this moonchild. But I could be another moonchild. Anyone can be a moonchild.

What happens after this moment.

What will the future be like? It will be good, but there will also always be bad things happening. In 100 years people will be wearing very pop like clothes. People will wear many dresses and not so many shirts and tops.

What are your own hopes and dreams for the future? I hope that I get into the Royal Ballet Academy. If not I want to be a famous writer, who writes fantasy books. I hope there won’t be war and terror. It would be be great if all the countries in the world would get a long and help each other and no one was rich or poor.

What do we need to work on in order for the future to become what we hope and dream? We have to stop fighting about the small stuff and try to be better human beings. Be kind towards one another.

ENFANTS TERRIBLES MAGAZINE — CHILDREN’S VOICES

She likes running away and she also likes candy very much - her favorite kind being licorice.

What does the word future mean to you?


ENFANTS TERRIBLES MAGAZINE — CHILDREN’S VOICES

Helena, 9, Aberdeen, Scotland What springs to mind when you hear the name Moon Child? Mind-blowing and adventurous.

What is the Moon Child like? Cheeky, positive.

What does the Moon Child look like if you were to describe him/her? Elf-like, small, green with spiky ears.

Where does the Moon Child live? In the very centre of the planet where no one has ever been before.

What special powers does the Moon Child posess? Hypnotises people into their dreams and makes them feel of their future.

What makes the Moon Child very happy? Helping people in need of finding their dreams.

What makes the Moon Child sad? When people are negative about their dreams.


What scares the Moon Child? Shadows - big black shadows.

What kind of a friend is the Moon Child? Happy and loyal and welcoming.

Could you be the Moon Child? Yes so I can save people’s dreams and make the world a better place.

What does the word future mean to you? Going around the world.

What will the future be like? Just normal with people being happy with each other.

What are your own hopes and dreams for the future? That everything can be nice and welcoming and peaceful.

What do we need to work on in order for the future to become what we hope and dream? Just keep dreaming and be nice to people.


Eliott, 11, Stockholm, Sweden What springs to mind when you hear the name Moon Child? What I see is a child that is “always on the moon” as we say in French, meaning that he is so distracted, so absent minded, that he surely comes from the moon (like me).

What is the Moon Child like? He can’t concentrate and organise but he has a lot of imagination.

What does the Moon Child look like if you were to describe him/ her? He is so different from the other children but his eyes are gazing and it seems his gaze could go through you.

Where does the Moon Child live?

What makes the Moon Child sad? When something is too serious and when everybody is angry.

On Earth (but also on the moon).

What scares the Moon Child?

What special powers does the Moon Child posess?

When he thinks he can’t move anymore and there is no more imagination in the world.

He has unlimited imagination.

What makes the Moon Child very happy? When he dreams and when he can create something freely.

What kind of a friend is the Moon Child? He is a really good friend, you are never bored with him. He doesn’t like when things get too quiet or too serious.


Could you be the Moon Child? Yes, of course! My head is always on the moon!

What does the word future mean to you? When I hear the word futur, I see advanced and futuristic technologies like flying cars and robots.

What will the future be like? Either it will be a disaster if humans are not taking care better of our world, or wonderful nature (probably saved by advanced technologies too).

What are your own hopes and dreams for the future? A better world with no more wars, better nature, nicer humankind.

What do we need to work on in order for the future to become what we hope and dream? All the countries of the world should unite to stop wars. We have to pollute less, recycle more, take better care of nature (wildlife etc.). We have to be kinder with one another.


Wilma, 6, Copenhagen, Denmark What springs to mind when you hear the name Moon Child? Aisha is a moon child. You know, Aisha from my kindergarten she always said she is a moon child ... So I know it is someone with a lot of imagination, I think so ... Could it be someone with a lot of imagination maybe? Or someone who runs fast?

What is the Moon Child like? It’s nice, and listens to its mom and dad and they only have to say things once because the moon child always does what she is told the first time. It’s good at thinking of fun things and does many different things like playing and imagining.

What does the Moon Child look like if you were to describe him/her? It can look different or like me. It can have brown, light or black skin. But it’s not pink. It’s hair can be all colors and long or short or straight or curly, but it’s mostly long and curly and mostly very dark. It has thick lips and wears pants and running shoes. Always pants, not a dress.

Where does the Moon Child live? I think it lives in houses with many special things such as tabels with only 1 leg and 5 things on the table. Heavy things that don’t fall off even though the table only has one leg. It has a TV that doesn’t use electricity and is made out of wood. The toys are different, sometimes the toys are just dresses with elephant trunks printed on them.

What special powers does the Moon Child posess? It has a better imagination than other people. It can make a muesli bar like a factory, except it can make it at home. It can make electricity and its own computer.

What makes the Moon Child very happy? If you give it something thats special, but comes from regular people. Or if you give it something its never had before, maybe new shoes or some mittens.


What makes the Moon Child sad? If you said that the moon child's inventions were really bad, then she would be sad. If you hit it or call it bad names, just the same things that would make me sad.

What scares the Moon Child? If someone made a shadow that looked like a vampire with vampire teeth and at first looked like another moon child, but turned out to be Dracula. Or if you hid behind the door in her bedroom and jumped out and shouted BOO!

What kind of a friend is the Moon Child? It could be friends with other moon children or if she was my friend she would have dark skin and glasses and be really funny and nice.

Could you be the Moon Child? Yes, kinda of, half a moon child and half a me child. I would have a lot of imagination and make a ton of cool inventions.

It means more time together. And you don’t say to anyone, that they are not important to you. You want to be important to someone in the future.

What will the future be like? Like now, like normal I think. But I would be bigger and you would be really old, you already are old, but older.

What are your own hopes and dreams for the future? That no one gets mad at me or trip me in the school yard and that I don’t get scars. And I hope my family never dies. Maybe I could be a doctor and a pilot at the same time or I could be someone that sells candy. Yes, I want to sell candy, the kind you mix yourself.

What do we need to work on in order for the future to become what we hope and dream? I need my parents to help me make my dreams come true and I have to be nice and work hard for my wishes to come true. I have to think about my dreams and believe it will come true and I have to tell myself, that it can happen and not believe it can’t happen.

LIFE, CLAY & CLUMSINESS - when beauty hides in the imperfections

by Vildfang Photography CĂŠline Hallas

R

ose Eken is Danish artist, who in her very own exceptional way recreates reality and life in ceramics. Her work allows us to see the unforeseen and unpredictable imperfections and touch the beauty of normality. For this issue on the Moon Child, Rose tells us about her approach to working with art and the creative process that lies behind recreating life in ceramics.


ABOUT ROSE Rose Eken. 40. Artist. Lives in Copenhagen.

EVERYDAY LIFE PORTRAYED IN CERAMICS Rose Eken graduated from Royal College of Art in London in 2003. She works in different disciplines including painting, drawing, sculpture and embroidery. Lately she has focused on large scale ceramic installations. She’s interested in the notion of space and objects that surround us every day.

WE WANT IT TO MAKE SENSE “My work is primarily figurative – relating to real events, specific rooms, places and objects. I reproduce and restage. I change materials, scale and proportions - distort and displace. My works points to our desire to give meaning to the world around us - the way we project our personal stories on to objects and places and create our own subjective reality. I work with flashes of memory, with moods and states of mind, fragments of individual and collective history that can be assembled into a picture of our past and thereby also point to how we perceive ourselves here and now.”


“Clay fascinates me because it’s such a versatile material – its very tactile and physical to work with – it is also a very dense and clumsy material, somehow it always reminds you of some inept Christmas decoration or some ashtray–like-object made in a 2nd grade art class. I like this a lot. On the other hand, clay is also a very fragile and poetic material that can become the thinnest and finest china. I like working with this span and always attempt to challenge the material and stretch it to its furthest by for example making very large or very long and thin objects as a broom or a guitar cable.”

EVERYDAY LIFE AS INSPIRATION “My inspiration comes from lots of different places and not always when you are looking for it! People, art, music is of course something that I’m around every day and which feed me. But very banal things can inspire me – something I notice in the street – a dinner party – a conversation… The everyday inspires me.”

Besides the work process, what’s the difference for you personally, between working with textiles, paper materials and clay? “I guess it is exactly the work process that makes it different. Basically I chose media according to what I want to achieve, what I want to say and which aesthetics

I find will work best for that particular idea. Each media demands different skills, different ways of solving a problem – I guess this I what makes it exiting to shift between or mix media. You achieve different results and you can challenge yourself and the way you work.”

ENFANTS TERRIBLES MAGAZINE — LIFE, CLAY & CLUMSYNESS

Do you bring your own personality into your pieces? “Yes, I guess I have always done that - in many ways use my own biography as a starting point for what I do but I’m actually really not interested in telling anything about myself per se – rather I aim to spark peoples own ideas and memories. I set the scene but it is the individual spectator that conclude the narration through his or her own association and memory.”

Do you create for you or your recipients? “I create for myself – I always work – its part of my nature and it is what makes me happy – to enter that focus and process of making a piece. But saying that I think all artist also somehow creates for the recipient – that is you also need that part – you need to let go of the work and give it to your audience in order to free you to make new pieces.”

THE CREATIVE SPACE “For quite a number of years I have worked at home – or perhaps more accurate – I have always also worked at home but certain projects call for a studio – particularly when I work with ceramics. I work with certain projects or materials here at home and other projects in a studio. In many ways my home (i.e. A small two roomed flat in central Copenhagen) is more a studio than a flat. Here I can work undisturbed but still everything I need is just outside – ready to grab. The studio I currently have is a ceramic workshop – so here I can make a mess and leave it until I come back – both is good.”

What do you need from a room in order to be able to play freely and create in it? “Well, ideally that it is large, and have large walls and high ceiling. A bright practical place with many tables that you can walk and work between. – and if it then also had space for a ceramic workshop in the corner – great!”

Can you create in all types of rooms or does the surroundings matter? “Yes, I think most artist can do that – but it of course limits you if the space for example is very small, there is a natural limit to what you can produce. It will reflect back on the work.”

“I don’t really think I could or would want to define my work in only 3 words.”

3 most important things to you when creating? “Well - Play, enjoy, sketch, don’t be afraid to make something you don’t know what is or understand why beforehand. Don’t be too hard on yourself. Make a lot and select.”

3 best sources of inspiration? “(Live)music / people / art”

Why is art important to you? “Because it provides a way to express what it might be like to be a human being.”

Any recommendation for other artist to check out? “I always enjoy the Swiss duo Fischli & Weiss (they had a great retrospective show at Guggenheim in New York earlier this year). Currently I’m showing the British painter Danny Fox at my gallery V1 Gallery in Copenhagen.”

Little Label Love Interview by Jennifer Irizarry

D

iscover two very different labels creating modern childrenswear with a decidedly rebellious bent. From an uncanny ability to re-interpret pop culture to the bold rejection of conventional gender stereotypes, I interviewed two of the most avant-garde designers for little mischief makers, future creatives, misfits, lovers, and fighters. Dear wild ones, this Little Label Love is for you.


Cavalier @cavalier Cavalier is a favorite label for tiny sartorialists and their parents the world over. Creative Director Angela Chong waxes poetic on art, organza, and what happens when rainbows throw up on you!


Cavalier is synonymous with sartorial streetwear and your AW15/16 collection Stardust pays homage to street art in the form of the graffiti spray can dress. Do you have a favorite street artist? What does street art look like in Singapore? I imagine it’s illegal, but your look books seem to indicate it’s alive and well! I’m a Banksy fan girl. Art aside, the entity that is Banksy is a master manipulator of the human psyche and to be able to juxtapose both, make a living fool out of us all and still leave us begging for more? I could go on all day but in short, yes, Banksy, yes. A million more yesses to the likes of Jeff Koons, Goin, Ramzi Adek and Jason Freeny. Most of the work featured in our look books are by The Blackbook Studio. Let’s just say that if you were to look hard enough in Singapore, you’ll eventually feed your [street art] hunger.

What do you think about the claims that Banksy is Massive Attack founder Roger Del Naja? Care to weigh in here? I am a huge Massive Attack fan so this theory really appeals to me! Wow I didn’t know about that 3D speculation, sounds like a legit link but to be honest, I don’t really care who Banksy is anymore. I’m done being played LOL. I just


want to sit back, relax and watch the music play. We’ll know when we know but a part of me hopes we never do. Banksy is Banksy because we don’t know who it is.

Stardust is inspired by David Bowie’s Ziggy Stardust character—how has Bowie’s legacy influenced you as a creative? Bowie is more of a visual inspiration to me - from his slick-backed hair and bad boy style to his crazed make-up – Bowie is cavalier.

Talk to me about the fabric choices in Stardust. Your use of organza seems like a mini-trademark for Cavalier lately, having been put to good use in your Ghost of Winter collection and again in the details of the AW16/17 collection. Is organza here to stay? What other interesting textiles can we enjoy in this collection? The use of organza is more of a metaphor for our way of fabric manipulation. It’s exciting to use fabrics unexpectedly – remixing it to give it an edge. I’d like to take on velvet one day and “un-gaudy-fy” it. We’re exploiting a soft tulle in SS17, a far cry from the typical princess fanfare.

You cite Jeremy Scott and Rick Owens as influences for Calvalier—it can be so hard to keep up with all the fantastic runway shows right now, are you are keeping up with as fashion month unfolds around the globe? I stopped flipping magazines and surfing fashion blogs once I started designing for CAVALIER so truth be told, I don’t even know what’s going on in the world of fashion. I don’t like to be swayed by what the world is doing and

ENFANTS TERRIBLES MAGAZINE — LITTLE LABEL LOVE

It was absolutely surreal when we heard of his passing the day after our shoot. The pure coincidence definitely left us in a state of shock but the way he left us with Blackstar was legendary. I like to think we celebrated the life a true rock star through our collection.


this is my mantra - if you want the world to keep up with you, you have to stop keeping up with the world.

ENFANTS TERRIBLES MAGAZINE — LITTLE LABEL LOVE

I fancy Cavalier as Dadaist or Surrealist which is funny since those movements happened 100 years ago! It’s crazy to think that it’s only now being applied to childrenswear. Who are your modern art muses?

I’m super intrigued by human and animal behaviour so when I do turn the tube on, my favourite channels are Crime and Investigation and Animal Planet. Not sure if I should be saying this here but there is an awesome series called 1,000 Ways To Die and it’s really the only program timing I remember. Weekdays, 11.50 pm, Singapore time.

The association with Dadaism and Surrealism is an honour that we dare not claim but I guess we are in a way “anti-art”, and proudly so. I’m particularly drawn to postminimalism artists like Bruce Nauman and Andy Warhol.

Ok I do love watching things being made so my other guilty pleasures are Unique Sweets, Unwrapped, Kids Baking Challenge, Crème de la Crème, Food Factory, Home Factory. Yes, anything desserts or factory I will watch, I’m a nerd like that.

In regards to pop culture generally, it’s been said we are living in the golden age of television. What are your must-see shows, guilty pleasures, or binge-worthy programs?

Can you give us a tiny hint at what’s coming for us for SS17? Crucially, will there be organza? No seriously, my love of organza comes directly from Cavalier!

Sorry to burst your bubble but we’re just about the worst people to ask about television. The one thing Perry and I immediately agreed on when we built our home was NOT to have a television in the living room – we really prefer conversations to televisions.

Ahhh, the perfect question to end this conversation, speaking of anti-art and all. For every person that appreciates our style, we also get one asking us for status quo – colour, princess or something crazy like that. We turned that outrageousness into an


inspiration for SS17 with the working title ‘A Rainbow Threw Up on Me’ which was eventually refined to ‘Acid Refluxxx’. So what’s

coming at you in SS17? Colour, unicorns, and a re-issue of our infamous Pasche Dress, this time with a candy-stained tongue.


MÊME @memekidswear YOU AND ME WE ARE THE SAME Reina Leilani, founder and creative director of même, exudes levels of je ne sais quoi that most of us can only aspire to. The Seattle-based designer boasts an anti-fashion attitude that is, perhaps ironically, pushing the envelope of children’s design to spectacularly modern heights. So come on, pull up that proverbial chair, and get to know même.

même is taken from the French language. Can you give some insight into how you settled on that particular name? We selected même because of how it translates when used in a certain context: as an indefinite adjective or pronoun it means ‘same’, ‘even’, or ‘itself’. It mostly ties into the idea that our clothing is meant to be shared between brothers and sisters (gender neutral) and that we are the same, we are even.


We also try to take this message a step further through the diverse selection of kid models we use, because representation definitely matters!

Tell us about the Japanese influence on Meme— you have cited Yohji Yamamoto and Rei Kawakubo as major influences on your style aesthetic. I studied Yohji Yamamoto during university. His philosophy on anti-fashion, life, work, and dress have lead me to discover my own personal aesthetic and growth. The oversized silhouettes and draping of his garments provide such a balance that I have not seen or felt until learning more about his work and others. There’s a childlike trust in the ways he and other designers view the world and it shows in their work. I try to do the same. There is a beauty in everything if we allow ourselves to see it.


Meme has an extremely sustainable vibe—boys and girls can wear every style, silhouettes are oversized to accommodate different body sizes and growth over time, fabrics are chosen for the ability to withstand wear and stains—it’s a very practical and insightful feature of your line—do you run parent focus groups or test your styles on actual children? I have a large family and friends who have children that we test our styles on. Being around them, I’ve


learned what they like in terms of products, and what they wish they had, and what frustrates them with products or clothing designs. We initially created the brand off of the frustrations of gender stereotypes displayed in kids clothing and toys.

You seem very committed to nurturing artistic expression in children through your philanthropic work and also in your personal support of young artists—like Giana(@g.von.g), whose work we just love by the way! Did you have artistic mentors as a young person? How did you first realize a creative life was calling you?

I think I was in grade four when I realized a creative life was calling me. We had a “Career Day,” where I dressed up as a ‘fashion designer/hairdresser/makeup artist/gallery owner’. Quite ambitious, but I feel that children know better than us adults when it comes to following their intuition.

What is it like being a fashion designer in Seattle? Are you part of a broader design community? Do you ever collaborate with other children’s designers? Being a designer in Seattle is a give and take, but I feel that being in a place that isn’t quite recognized in the industry (in comparison to Los Angeles or New York) has given me a better opportunity to study and progress on my own terms. I’m not easily influenced by trends, or being the “next big thing,” or feeling like I need to fight my way through a crowd of others doing the same exact thing. It’s quiet here, but that doesn’t mean there

ENFANTS TERRIBLES MAGAZINE — LITTLE LABEL LOVE

As a young person, I did not have an artist mentor of my own, but I’ve found comfort in my community to pursue a creative field. Osiris Navarro has been an inspiration to me through her work of nurturing our community in bringing local artists together to support major causes. Because I didn’t truly have that one person growing up, I’ve told myself I wanted to be that support for somebody else. We’re able to do this through même and it’s been so fulfilling.


isn’t noise being made. There are plenty of artists that are doing big things that are from Seattle.

ENFANTS TERRIBLES MAGAZINE — LITTLE LABEL LOVE

If we are considering Seattle as a broader design community, then I’d say yes, we are definitely part of a creative community. But in terms of our line of work, there aren’t too many people focusing on children’s wear here.

duction cycle, but we are working towards being on time with trade show seasons starting with Chapter III. Each chapter is a continuation of the last, where we gradually expand the style offerings, while remaining “season-less.”

I haven’t collaborated with any other children’s designers yet, but I hope to in the future!

Our hope in this approach is to have all our collections versatile with each other to increase longevity in wears. A plus is hopefully teaching consumers that it’s possible to invest into kids clothing that’s worth it!

Black and white dominate your current collection—do you have plans for meme to incorporate other colors?

Who are your favorite womenswear designers? Do you have a work/play uniform that you stick to these days?

Absolutely! We’ll be exploring and adding in colors as we go from Chapter to Chapter.

Aside from Yohji Yamamoto, Rei Kawakubo, there’s Alexander Wang, Mary-Kate and Ashley Olson (The Row), and Junya Watanabe.

Speaking of chapters—is it a deliberate term you are using in lieu of ‘collection’? This seems to play into your anti-fashion ethos—are chapters released on the standard fashion schedule or do you have an alternative production cycle? Correct! Chapters I and II are on an alternative pro-

As far as work/play uniform, my go-to is a black oversized kimono coat, black cropped sweater, black high-waist tapered trousers, and either black boots or white Converse Chuck Taylor’s.

And finally, what are your favorite Seattle


hotspots? If we had only 2 days there, what would be your top recommendations? Places to eat: I would definitely go to Bateau (Contemporary Steakhouse), Rachel’s Ginger Beer, Maneki (Japanese bar and classic fare), Ba Bar (Contemporary Vietnamese fare), and Li’l Wody’s (Local Burger restaurant)

If you like coffee: Elm Coffee Roaster, Eastern Cafe, Caffe Vita, Slate

In the upstairs of the showroom you will find hard materials such as steel, glass and terrazzo complemented by the softness of the velvet and the warm color scheme. The beautiful and intriguing mixture of two opposites leaves us with a bold impression of functionality, aesthetics and design. Entering the downstairs leads you into a mesmerizing world of pink. Everything is kept monochrome and the effect is noteworthy. Details of texture and form comes to life and demand your attention, giving the impression of being taken to a future world.

FÄFÄ

FOREVER KAWAII Interview by Jennifer Irizarry


ENFANTS TERRIBLES MAGAZINE — INSTAGRAM FEATURE

C

hildish, colorful, and playful may be the three words Helen Miyaoka uses to describe her whimsical children’s label fäfä, but its soul is 100% kawaii. Commonly interpreted in the West as ‘cute’, in reality kawaii is a much more nuanced idea with deep roots in Japanese popular culture.


advertorial

Like fäfä itself, kawaii is a celebration of innocence, beauty, and the return to an idealized childhood, with a heavy nod to Western culture. Of mixed Japanese and Greek heritage, it is not surprising that Miyaoka is the perfect ambassador of kawaii children’s fashion internationally. With 16 fäfä boutiques across Japan, a successful collaboration with Uniqlo under her belt, and a devoted international following, the next chapter in fäfä’s evolution could be the global domination of cute—not such a bad thing in today’s world! Helen Miyaoka shares in her own words the struggles, the joys, and the inspiration behind the phenomenal success of fäfä.

FÄFÄ ORIGIN STORY When I was little I always refused to wear the clothes my mum chose. If she forced me to wear them I would cry out loud, take them off and choose the clothes that I liked. I enjoyed dressing up at an early age because my father who traveled often overseas, would always bring back funny looking stuffed animals, beautiful picture books and beautiful clothes. I still remember the Rainbow colors, glitter, and Snoopy prints which brought me so much happiness. I have known that I wanted to a fashion-related job since I was very little. As a fashion student in London I was always wearing my own hand made clothes. Children would often come to me and ask where they could buy the clothes I was wearing.


There was a girl in my neighborhood who would point at me and say “mummy, look! That’s a fairy!”. It was really funny— I had to pretend I didn’t hear anything. I realized that children were attracted to what I was wearing—maybe I looked like a big kid to them. I thought maybe children’s fashion is what I should go for instead of becoming a fashion stylist, which was in my mind back then.

BUILDING THE FÄFÄ TEAM In 2001 after graduation I had an opportunity to design for a new high-end children’s brand in Los Angeles. After working for this company for 2 years I wanted to run my own brand and started fäfä in 2003. I opened a small showroom/shop in Tokyo and ran fäfä alone for 5 years. When I hit the 5th year in 2008 I thought of closing the brand but that is when the current fäfä art director Kohei and my brother Yoji came into the picture.


ENFANTS TERRIBLES MAGAZINE — INSTAGRAM FEATURE

advertorial


If I hadn’t met Kohei this would have never happened because he was the one who told my brother that we should rebuild fäfä together. Fäfä grew to have 16 shops and is sold at the best department stores and boutiques in Japan. Each of us have our own roles but because we are a small company and we pretty much need to be able to juggle everything. Outside of our office we have our sales staff at our stores of course. Our company Tell a Tale Inc, is ran by Yoji who is the business brain, Kohei who does the art direction, and myself, the designer.

We are creating a website for overseas customers which I hope will be ready soon.

TREASURY WEAR We don’t follow trends or rules. Our wish is for children to dress up in clothes that give them dreams and make them happy. Fäfä wants children to wear something special and memorable because childhood passes so quickly. The name fäfä comes from my 27 year old teddy bear—I made a story about her when I created the brand. Flapper bear fäfä doesn’t like to wear clothes so her mummy had an idea of making dazzling and sweet clothes like the princesses wear in the picture books that she loves. Fäfä wants children to feel a connection through the clothing they wear. We call our clothing “‘treasury wear’” in the hopes that it will be passed onto generations. I just love that feeling of joy my teddy bears and storybooks gave me and I want to pass that on to my own daughter.

ENFANTS TERRIBLES MAGAZINE — THE STORY OF FÄFÄ

The faces in our team are quite unique with ages ranging from the mid 20’s to the late 60’s. They are like family to me.


ENFANTS TERRIBLES MAGAZINE — THE STORY OF FÄFÄ

advertorial

Whenever I get letters or comments from customers about the connection and happiness they feel through fäfä, that is always the best moment for me. Because the designs are “different” it sometimes scares people away. Not the kids but the grown ups—I guess it’s not for everyone or maybe it takes time, but I don’t dare go for a safety zone because then there would be no point of being fäfä.

CREATIVE PROCESS I start from a doodle with my current mood or interests and when the right one comes to my head I show it to my pattern cutter. I rewind my childhood by looking through my old picture books with all sorts of cuteness—the books, toys and clothes and the scent of the wrapping paper that my father used to bring us when we were little. I’m also obsessed with the books by Dare Wright. Pattern cutting is the most important element when creating a garment. Fäfä’s pattern cutter has a lot of experience in men’s and women’s fashion and he always comes up with inspiring suggestions when we are in the process of making the toile (test garment). There are times that my designs change before we


create the sample and when it’s done it’s my turn to put life into the sample by choosing and mixing the right fabrics. I really enjoy the process of putting life into the garment with all the people who are involved. Our newest collection is all about mix and match: ruffled tulle, gingham, and colorful prints sprinkled with nostalgia. This season we have our popular kitty cat print, hydrangea print, fairy print and our new prints featuring chicks, mermaids and doves. I wanted to create a bright collection for the cold weather so the kids would enjoy going out.

ENFANTS TERRIBLES MAGAZINE — INSTAGRAM FEATURE

Counting to 3


I

’m thinking maybe I don’t want to write about my kids anymore. I feel there’s not so much need for it any longer.

I’ve gotten too used to having kids. And with that, the need to be sarcastic fades. Well…. A little at least. Let me explain this train of thoughts. Writing is hard as it is, but being sarcastic makes it way easier. Writing seriously and entertaining at the same time is hard work. It’s why people take courses or even try to do a whole study on it. As you have probably noticed, I didn’t´t take that course. I find it harder and harder to enjoy reading blogs or watching news. There are so many sarcastic people out there, I miss the connection. For me sarcasm is a way to laugh at your own sadness and faults and quirks. It’s sharing with a friend how you feel without having to cry halfway through the first sentence. To a lot of people, it has become a way to laugh at others and pretend you do not care. You have zero fucks to give. It’s the new mantra. That’s what’s making me sad. The world has leaders that seem to lack empathy, the advocating of being the best, scoring big, is the ultimate goal to a lot of earthlings. But kids are moon people by definition. They all have sympathy, they understand the need of sharing and caring, they see beauty. Life sucks as it is, we could at least show other people some love. So, completely unlike me, I will give you a straight from the heart story, no shit, just love, about something very close to my heart, my now 6-year- old Moon child. [That was the longest introduction to a sob story ever, I know.] His name is Warre Wolf Das and the evening before he was born I kind of knew, he would come the next day or night. The news told me it was going to be a full moon and I wondered if it was still a good idea to name him Wolf.


I had completely thought out the birth, meditated on it for 3 months and imagined every detail. This was the way it was going to be. And there’s not a single bit of sarcasm in it. I got my way. To the tiniest detail [ the very late arriving of anybody else but Mr T, the giving birth on the couch] everything went the way I had envisioned. I know most women are reading this with great disbelief or discontent, but it is just the way it is. [the first time was very different!] Only thing that didn’t happen was having my original weight back within a week.

This moon child is the most giving, caring, sensitive, empathetic person and growing up quickly. Seeing him loose his ‘Moon child magic’ a bit at a time is quite sad. We adults should all strive to become what he is, not the other way around. He has the biggest imagination, love for details, and time does not exist in his mind yet, though he is reminded of it more every day. What to do to keep him this open to fantasy, new ideas and this huge empathy for other living beings? Why have so many of us forgotten about this or value it less than money? I obviously don’t know. I’m not the next Socrates. Instead of giving an answer, I was hoping someone reading this will help me. Is Never Never Land really the only option to keep from being a time-consumed- narcissist- sarcastic grown up? I have hope. I hope my kids, and your kids, with their empathy, and their ability to think in opportunity’s instead of problems, will live to cherish their talents instead of curse their difficulties. We will raise a generation of people who feel connected. And sarcasm will get it’s true place back, a way to deal with sadness or weirdness without the bawling your eyes out. And if not, I hope my moonkid will get his dragon and fight you with his magic crocodilewand on a full moon night.

“

Terrible children. One who acts unconventionally.

French expression traditionally referring to a child who is terrifyingly candid by saying embarrassing things to adults, especially parents.

However, the expression has drawn multiple usage in careers of art, fashion, music, and other creative arts. In these careers, it implies a successful "genius" who is very unorthodox, striking, and in some cases, offensive or rebellious. Classically, one who "thumbs their nose" at the establishment or challenges it.
