THE MANIFESTO TAO
We will celebrate the beauty of
the passage of time through things.
We will be honest like animals and clever like children.
Every morning, as we open the wardrobe, we will sing old songs for a new world.
We will follow our instinct to the Northern Lights.
Love above all. Equality above all. Kindness above all.
We will play hide and seek with the stupid and the selfish. And they’ll never find us.
We will light candles with kisses and look each other in the eyes.
We will not respect museums that don’t tell the truth.
We will reject any wool that’s scratchy.
We will do things with passion, complete passion and nothing but passion.
You probably notice that I hardly ever talk about fashion for children on my blog, but there is a new born kids’ fashion label, which can’t just past away not noticed out here. It’s like a fresh breeze from Spain I’m glad to enjoy. Laia Aguilar is a former founder and creative director of Bobo Choses , where she was working from 2008 to 2014. Few days ago she officially launched her first SS16 clothing collection for children from 0 to 12 called The Animals Observatory. If I can be honest with you, when I saw today the family house of Laila on Thesocialitefamily blog I started to put the puzzles in places and like the whole story even more.
As Laia said about her collection : “ The Animals Observatory " aims to be the clothing brand of our children’s children. Timeless in trends that really have nothing to do with fashion, it’s about being close to little family stories. The central influence on my designs for The Animals Observatory is perhaps the animal world seen through the eyes of a child, with curiosity, empathy and excitement.”
Do I need to explain more? I absolutely love her style and that she can stay close to her instincts and feelings and create such a fresh and original collection. I wish the new born TAO a great success!
