Here are a few images from Paade Mode‘s beautiful AW14 collection, “Below the Snow.” The Latvian brand offers organic, smart casual clothes for children that are all ethically produced in Latvia; the brand’s founder, Linda Raituma, supports the slow fashion movement, where clothes are thoughtfully designed and manufactured using natural fabrics and technologies that are child & environmentally friendly. The brand often partners with small artisans, ateliers, and studios to hand-make its clothes in a socially and economically conscious fashion. The result is a collection of sophisticated yet wearable pieces – like cozy knits, girls’ dresses, & toddler boys’ clothes – that are exquisitely made and intended to enhance children’s personalities instead of supersede them.
Paade Mode’s fall 2014 line is full of lovely, winter-esque colors and ultra warm pieces. “The snow creates a story, same as parents create the story of their children. Little, delicate, and vulnerable, yet so colorful, bright, and exuberant. Each their own person, thinker, filled with joyful smiles, capability for unconditional love and trust. The play between snow, pines, bushes and trees emphasizes their unique colors and forms while loving parents give children the chance to grow into beautiful and free personalities.” Cozy wool knits (cardigans, skirts, & scarves), thick plaid dresses and tops, and deep blues & maroons are found throughout the collection – the perfect pieces for a fashionable and versatile winter wardrobe.

Finnish baby and children’s clothing brand Mainio‘s cool prints & color combinations return in its fall/winter 2014 collection and the results are cute, quirky, and stylish. Each collection features bold black-and-white graphics, but this season the line has also incorporated greens, yellows, and blues into the mix. Founded in 2013, the Finnish brand creates 100% organic cotton basics for babies and kids that are practical enough for everyday wear but still fun and unique – cool graphic t-shirts for toddlers, baby one-pieces and rompers, and easy-to-wear leggings. It’s all practical and fashion-forward yet still original and kid-friendly. Plus, in addition to using top quality GOTS-certified organic cotton, Mainio produces all of its clothes in strictly controlled facilities in India where the workers’ health and security are a top priority. The brand even donates a portion of all sales to their community, improving general well-fare, education and health care.
In addition to its new collection of bedding and dresses for women, Mainio has also launched an English website & is now offering international shipping! To celebrate, we have partnered with Mainio to give away one of the line’s most popular items from the fall collection: the brand’s cape, available in one size that fits 2 years and up, and featuring a bold eagle print on the front, graphic black and white back, and cozy hood (you can see this item in the last two pictures above). Made from a thick and cozy organic cotton, this top is the perfect layer for fall – fun, edgy, unique, and comfortable.
Enter to win below – one winner will be selected Monday, October 13th!

The British brand is loved for its quirky & bold prints and easy-to-wear cotton toddler & baby clothes; the pieces are practical and comfortable but with a modern and creative twist that separates them from other brands on the market.

The NUNUNU FW14 collection is now available to order at Estella – and this year we are offering some styles in sizes up to 9 years! The Israeli baby and children’s boutique brand is celebrating its 5th birthday this season, and is doing so with the same attitude & humor we all know and love. While old favorites, like the bold star and skull graphics, are still included in the collection, the designer brand has also introduced new prints and materials for fall 2014. Geometric prints cover girls’ dresses and toddler sweatshirts, a pullover top is created entirely out of metallic fabric, and tulle & faux-leather details add the perfect amount of style and urban flair.
There are also new styles we are excited about, like the girl’s leggings with a skirt overlay and baby & toddler harem pants. As always, the designer baby and toddler clothes are practical, versatile, and highly-wearable – while some pieces (see: hoodie sweatshirts and toddler crewneck tops) are perfect for days at school, afternoon activities, or just lounging at home, other items (like this girl’s dress) offer the perfect alternative to stuffy, often-uncomfortable formal wear. Edgy & fashionable yet still functional & kid-friendly, NUNUNU successfully combines style and personality to create clothes that babies, children, and parents will all approve of this fall. Happy shopping!

Looking for girls’ dresses this fall that are weather appropriate, versatile, and imaginative? Then be sure to check out these fun options from Spanish baby and children’s designer brand Bobo Choses. Each dress features cozy long sleeves, cinching at the waist, and whimsical designs that make them imaginative and fashion-forward. The superpeanuts & laureus dresses are made from a comfy fleece and the double buttons on the shoulder add a cute touch, while the birds & leopard print options are made from a cotton twill that’s durable and practical. They’re as perfect for a day at school as they are more formal occasions, and the fact that they are all machine-washable means they’re easy to care for and can be worn over and over again. And, as the weather cools down, your daughter can even pair these dresses with a pair of faux leather girls’ leggings or these shiny toddler leggings for a look that is equal parts stylish and warm!
