Now available to order at Estella: the Soft Gallery AW14 collection! Based in Copenhagen, the boutique baby & children’s brand was founded with the goal of designing & producing clothing that encouraged creativity and inspired children’s artistic sides. “Each collection is a living gallery – a gallery on fabric.” Designed by friends Tina Holt Miller & Barbara Hvidt, who met while both studying in London, the brand collaborates with a select group of artists every season to create a clothes that are aesthetically beautiful but also practical & comfortable enough that babies & toddlers will want to wear them.
The AW14 collection is entitled A Glimpse – “what begins when all the consistency ends. A glimpse never stands alone but is followed by a question, a wonder, a feeling of fear, joy or hope. Your mind will follow a glimpse like Alice did the white rabbit or Edmund the faun in Narnia. And when you’re not sure of what you saw or what you know, and can’t follow the fragment but are left with the glimpse, imagination takes over. A world of imagination is the world of childhood.”
Soft Gallery’s signature aesthetic and practical clothes shine in this season’s collection, one that’s full of rich & bold colors with imaginative & magical graphic prints. Wolves, raccoons, feathers, & more cover toddler t-shirts, girls’ dresses, jumpsuits, & pajamas to keep your little ones warm all winter long. Unique, innovative, and modern, Soft Gallery is clearly a beautiful labor of love that Estella is thrilled to be carrying this season!

You were born into a family of travelers. The instant you were born and introduced to the world around you, you were introduced to the world around you! At a few weeks old, you were on your first airplane ride. At age 5, you had already visited the pyramids in Egypt. By the time you were 15, you had owned three passports and each one had more stamps in it than your local post office. Your family was born to travel, and travel it did.
Fast forward to your married family life and your child. You try to tone it down a little and take it easy…but you really can’t help it. It is in your blood. You were born into a family of travelers and now your baby will follow in your footsteps. It is no wonder that your best friend has given you the fantastically appropriate Baby T-Shirt with Cars by Imps & Elfs.
For the family on the go, this tee is the perfect tribute to all things on wheels. After all, your baby has already taken a bus ride through Costa Rica and a road trip down Route 66 across the country. This gorgeously understated T-shirt — with its blue water colored cars and trucks — also presents what is sure to be your unofficial family motto, “I Want to Go Everywhere.” Indeed!
Made with 95% organic cotton and 5% elastane, this Imps & Elfs cutie travels well and feels perfectly lived in, and soft on baby’s skin. Not only are their tshirts this gorgeous, all the baby clothes at Imps & Elfs have a story to tell. A little comfort is just the things for those on the go.
So…where to next?
