Playtime Paris: The International Kids & Maternity Fair.
Vesle is lucky enough to be able to attend a few great kids deco and clothing fairs every year. The last one for me was in Paris for Playtime last summer, they showed spring/summer 2016. This is such a creative boost for me, you get to meet all the great designers and catch up with old friends. I have always supported the smaller unique brands and Playtime is full of them. Here is a sneak peek of a few brands I loved during my stay in Paris, can’t wait for summer!
Me - Helena, Co-founder of Vesle. Just wanted to say hi!
Not short of inspiration...

Bobo Choses always has a lot of humor to it's collections and we all seem to fall in love with everything they do. This season it was bold colours and playful prints.
Latvian brand, Paade Mode / (pictured below), was one of my favourites this season. Tulle heaven with really nice details, great colour combinations and unusual styles and cut.
Danish brand GRO also caught my eye, it's understated and perfect for everyday. I love them for their basics.
I loved Spanish, Tiny Cottons, for it’s fun prints and cute styles.
Cool buttons from Danish Soft Gallery.
Macarons is all luxurious organic and fair trade textiles and I love the clean design and comfortable styles.
The many aisles of Playtime Paris.
Danish Pierrot la Lune showed us a really nice collection filled with nostalgia. They also added a baby line which was really nice.
We also loved Spanish brand Motoreta (pictured below) all the different prints and clean lines.
NYC based brand, Oeuf, is always a favourite and has the cutest collection coming out this summer. Soft colours and playful illustrations, perfect for summer.
Goodnight Light is a lighting design studio based in Paris and Barcelona. We adore the different designs and characters this brand gives us, they appeal as much to kids as to grown-ups.
Wee Gallery's organic quilted play blanket and pillows made me want it all.
Another Danish brand, FABELAB, does the coolest bedding and decoration. With it's playful design, beautiful colour combinations and geometric shapes makes this a really interesting brand.
Chic French brand, Talc, has always been a favourite of mine. I wish they would come to a shop in Scandinavia!.
I'm off to Playtime again in one week, can't wait!!. If you see me, come and say Hi!.
Playtime starts this Sunday, January 24, and ends Tuesday January 26. This was a collaboration between Vesle Universe and Playtime Paris.
