The search for nice children’s wear, footwear and accessories continues! On my visits to most states around Australia I continually bump into the same type of product in the children’s boutiques that I visit. Bright and laree colours, logo’s and funny (but not) t-shirts or over frilly and over embellished. Say nothing of the hideous footwear and cheap accessories. Until recently when Chicfinds found a beautiful boutique in Clovelly, Sydney.
The Kido Store has to be the best store I have found to date in Australia. There is a beautiful mix of product from home wares to optical and everything is different and unique. I love the footwear collections! The most gorgeous brands and favourite of all is Anniel from Montebulluna in Italy. Anniel was established in 1976 and is all hand made with a strong inspiration coming from ballet tradition. It is well known for its unique design and highest quality.
Another brand to have a look at is Manuela de Juan. The footwear is beautiful and hand made in Spain. There is something for everyone in the collection from casual to dressy.
There is a beautiful mix of clothing and accessories. One of the stand out accessory brands is y Atsuyo et Akiko; a brand from Brooklyn, NY. Delicate and well put together the accessories are whimsical and pretty without being tacky. They have a theatrical feel to them which resonates also in their clothing. Another favourite accessory brand is the funky optical rang from Son’s and Daughters.
One of my favourite clothing brands in Kido is Louise Misha from Paris. A gorgeous French brand that has lovely cuts, colours and prints with a true French feel reminiscent of Bonpoint and Marie Chantal but at half the price. Dresses come in at around $129.00. By the way in case you didn’t know the wonderful Grace Tales by Georgie Abay creator of knitwear line Atelier/Child has a shopping facility on her web site and it is very Chic! http://thegracetales.com/about/
The boutique is in Clovelly and has a pop up store in Enmore plus they operate a very good online boutique.
