THE STORY

KEY OU

PERMUTED EMPIRE

T

he island of Ou is a peninsula where the Alpine sun always shines, close to the ocean.

A magic canoe is needed to reach it, which one could obtain with bold caution from Mica Gain, the mighty magician, for a handsome sum of gold coins.

O

n the island of Ou, lives a fine gentlewoman who reigns over a court of well-behaved

and loyal

subjects. This gentle ruler often wishes for mischief and likes her regal portraits

to feature her with three arms or two heads, but always with a lovely headband. Much to the bemusement of her court.

H

er castle is modest, her tastes minimalist. Every afternoon, this dame leaves the comfort

of her homestead, to go to the harbour. There, she watches (and sometimes joins) her peoples, gently parading on the promenade. They feast their eyes, in boastful wonder, on each other’s

extraordinary attires and on the wonderful boats. There, they also discuss the present, the past and the future in hushed tones.

Can yOU SEE

THE ANAGRAMS ?

N

o-one knows the real name of this perfectly-dressed lady. Her bewildering mother

never told

her. No-one dared delve further, and torn, she accepted her nameless fate.

She took revenge when she became a Mum a few years later. She named her bouncy babies

Caroline and Cornelia.

SHOPPING

Birds of a feather flock together / like attracts like. The summer must-haves are like Key Ou’s little subjects – they work in pairs. Their closet is functional: dual-purpose rather than duplicated, the right cut and a good template are their motto. And when you find it – copy/paste it! Well not exactly, subtlety is required. Sea blue, including fish, is matched with grey blue. Gingham falls for smocked stripes and bicycles work in tandem. In a nutshell, a friendly wardrobe in which even the lions roar in unison!

DESIGN SHOPPING

On Key Ou, the Queen’s subjects like our marmosets, bears and geese. They cultivate the earth and eat vegetables that come from their cleanly raked gardens, they build convertible houses made of ecological wood: a magic slate or a colourful car – on Key Ou we like dual purpose. At night we fall asleep in sheets printed with freshly harvested fields while watching the revolution of a bird mobile. At dawn when the alarm clock rings, it’s time to go to work: right foot first, no fuss.

NEW

“The Marni collection for children is a visual firework; at once cheerful and playful, each piece of clothing produces that surprise effect and instantly lightens your mood.” Marni unveils a very relevant line directly inspired from their women’s collection. We like the familiar poetical and geometric prints, and the abstract flowers – all in delicious colours perfect for the season. A promising, spontaneous and colourful collection that we’re very proud to offer on Little Fashion Gallery this summer.

EXCLU

“Translating the A.P.C. range into a children’s line seemed natural”, highlights Judith Touitou, the artistic director of the brand. We’re very proud to present the A.P.C. capsule collection for children, designed exclusively for Little Fashion Gallery and available from 2 to 12 years, from 25€ on our site this summer. Perfectly cut, beautiful and timeless, this new line of children’s clothes is in keeping with what is one of the trendiest brands on the market. This light denim material and soft cotton jersey displays a parrot print that’s also reproduced on a shopping bag – one that all the Mums will definitely want to borrow! www.littlefashiongallery.com

Anne Laporte: book worm and mother of three children ( 2, 5 and 7 years old) I would never have foreseen the fact that my kids wouldn’t like reading, as I myself have always been such a “book worm” – something I’ve always tried to transmit to them by offering them books on many occasions! I’d like them to develop their imagination and ability to reflect… I’m not sure my children learn as they read, but I think their personality’s get richer and their eyes become more sensitive to what surrounds them, as I will generally choose books that catch my eye with graphics, illustrations, or themes…

THE STORY

KEY LI

DID HANNAH SEE BEES? HANNAH DID.

W

ow!

Have you ever been to the Island of Li? It’s the island where colours pop in unison

and where fun slithers in the streets. We first reached the Island of Li by noon but also by fluke, as we were learning to kayak on the river Lo. All we could see was a giant castle perched on top of a rock, which we could hear all manner of happy sounds. What dizzying noises they were!

I

f we were in a doom mood from our hazardous trip on the river of LO, all our tension disappeared

quickly on hearing these hilarious songs. “Yo, Bob! Mug o’gumbo, boy!” What joy! We decided to explore this happy isle, keen to discover what made its inhabitants so ecstatic.

W

e learnt that Key Li was governed by an archduchess, whose sole aim was to have fun.

She was the great madam of merriment and for that, her people had deified her. Her madness and warmth were legendary. When she welcomed us into her kingdom with such hospitality, we became redder than red with excitement.

Pin the

palindromes!

www.littlefashiongallery.com

47

D

uring our stay, we danced, we smiled, we laughed, we jumped, we bounced and even drove

a shiny yellow racecar! This amusing archduchess quickly became our best friend, just like that in one afternoon. We decided to abandon both our kayak and our journey, to instead spend a few weeks riding on rollercoasters with our great new friend, archduchess Hannah.

Every masquerade on Key Li has the same pattern: the guests are so afraid of stumbling across a smart look-alike that getting dressed is a brain-teaser! A nice glittery mask for the face, a well-cut, bright outfit with some light sequins, something iridescent and knitted and voilà / there you go! Raspberry pink tastes like apricot on the other side of the mirror and some proudly hold their favourite course to make their way to the buffet. Léon wears a bowler hat and greets Noël who does the same. Copycat! They shout simultaneously.

On Key Li, what a light-hearted mood! In sugar houses let’s enjoy the taste of knitted doughnuts and the sound of maracas shaped as French fries in cornet bags. On the street we dance the night away to salsa tunes in the light of flowery paper lanterns! As the sun rises Li’s inhabitants drop their masks and fall into a deep sleep. Hanging to the baskets of multicoloured hot-air balloons, they dream of candies and dancing clowns...

NEW

“A romantic veil envelops this summer collection…” Tartine et Chocolat joins Little Fashion Gallery with a selection of baby clothes that are gorgeous yet comfortable. We’ve chosen these timeless and beautifully detailed pieces to meet your expectations: the knitted sets make ideal gifts for newborns, while the flannel pyjamas are a must-have for any baby’s wardrobe. In addition, there are accessories and ultra soft toys, to be discovered, each delivered in beautiful branded boxes.

72 www.littlefashiongallery.com


MUST HAVE

NEW

“I wanted to design a line for children that would be adorable yet refined” explains Cordelia de Castellane. This summer Little Fashion Gallery welcomes the brand with a pastel selection. For girls we chose flowery print blouses with a Japanese look, to match with well-cut and brightly-coloured unisex trousers. And the must-have? Fluorescent pink! For boys, seersucker is recurrent on jackets, and this season unveils a capsule collection designed in collaboration with the ex-designer of Zadig & Voltaire! www.littlefashiongallery.com

73

Your childrens’ closets require basic pieces, and we don’t always think of American Apparel for kids & babies. Such a shame! Little Fashion Gallery offers a large selection of their bodies, T-shirts and tank tops, each carefully made in a Los Angeles factory that uses soft, comfortable and often organic cotton. As for the colours, whether pastel or bright, they’re totally trendy and make for a one-of-a-kind style!

THE FORBIDDEN LETTER

O R

THE STORY n Key Po resided the most splendid but fierce of princesses, Princess Chloe.

evered by her subjects, who trembled in her presence, she used to insist on some uncompromising rules.

If these were not followed, her moods could turn sombre. Her shouting could turn her peers into stone. Her whining could switch off the entire isle’s lights. Her grumbling could frighten monsters. No joking.

T

he most inflexible of her rules consisted of never, never, never, ever using the first letter. You know,

the first letter? If Princess Chloe discovered her subjects were using this letter, she would fly into the most incredible fury. If she ever got wind of someone uttering one word with the forbidden letter, she just couldn’t control her outburst. Her subjects were used to it. Therefore, they were extremely prudent in their discussions.

E

ven the court’s smitten poet needed to comply with this curious rule. The news of his predecessor’s

fortune surely kept him on his toes. The poor devil ended up being thrown out of the kingdom, into the surrounding desert, never to return.

B

ut one evening, while he devotedly recited to her the poem professing his undying love, he slipped.

She went red. She went redder. Redder more. He froze. She shouted: “who permitted you to use the forbidden letter?”. “So sorry, your Highness, so sorry,” he muttered. “I used the letter to refer to the love I possess for you, do forgive me.”

S

Will you

dare to use the letter a!?

81

he thought for two minutes. “He is nice, this poet. Do I wish to lose him?” The truth is she found this rule

quite tiring. She slowly got up from her throne and with immense gusto, bellowed:

“Argh, never mind this abominable rule! I am exhausted by it. I abolish it now!” The whole kingdom quickly got hold of the news. Everyone rejoiced with cries of ah ah ah ah ah!!!

There’s pixie dust on Island Po’s trends: but a magician (or an unscrupulous princess!) is stealing people’s clothes! So to remain unnoticed, let’s opt for chameleon outfits in pastel or iridescent colours; let’s get starry, yet incognito! The materials in the closet are diaphanous: muslin, poplin or light jersey – easy to slip away in. Any must-haves? The frilled tutu skirt, declined in fairy tulle! And if at night all cats are grey, in the daytime Po’s inhabitants sunbathe in saffron colours.

SHOPPING DESIGN

On Key Po we love poetry, potpourris with roses and being pampered. In the young ladies’ bedrooms, you see hair brushes made of unicorn hair, necklaces with oyster pearls and white rabbits in a hurry. In the evening, we color Princess Chloe’s dresses on a nice coloring book in the moonlight. The inhabitants have cats and domestic butterflies, and most of them collect shooting stars and paper swans. But all is well concealed in polka dot suitcases which are duly locked.
