today on B:kids
Posted by Wiebke from Line+Liv
I love to sit on the windowsill, in front of the house or in the street café and watch the hustle and bustle on the street. I think that every street, every place and every moment can be honest and inspiring.
For B:Kids “What to wear today” I have invited 4 beautiful women and asked them to look for us out of their windows and have asked them: ”Please take a look at the street: What is very special about the (school) children in your city?” Perhaps also connected with the small desire of mine to be able to just look at these streets of these cities at some point myself.
Tami (Nguyen Rael) is designer and owner from the kids fashion label ismodern and lives with her family in New York City :
“Children in New York City are very lucky. They live in a city that is diverse, vibrant, eclectic, bustling, and cultured but yet daunting, impersonal, noisy and crowded. These good and bad exposures create independent, confident, and tolerant mini citizens. That is the hope.”
Miriam Berstein is one of three sister, who founded the charming Israeli label Ada Ada. She lives in Tel Aviv/Israel:
“In Israel as a whole and especially in Tel Aviv (which is a very hot and humid city) the weather plays a big part of what we wear. The Tel Avivian children find creative, beautiful and funny ways to handle the heat and humidity which rule for the majority of the year. You can see them for example wearing extra big clothes of their siblings and fold them endless folds so they fit them in length but hardly touch them. Because they dislike hats (apparently it is no longer “cool” once your past 6 years old) they take old, worn out shirts of their parents and rap them around their heads (like the “CAFIA” from the Arabic culture). So in general you can see that they use their imagination, are influenced from cultures that are masters of dealing with heat- all to keep a little bit of chillness and their own chick. ”
