Vogue Inspires our Top 9 Texture-ific Kidswear Pieces

In the last few years, adult fashion trends and style have begun to enter the world of children’s fashion with mini-me looks popping up in all the biggest design houses and stylish celebrity children, at the ripe old age of four, gracing  the front pages of fashion magazines.

Children’s fashion has become just as important as fashion for adults, and if style and such is important for you and your little one,  and the best way to ensure your mini trendsetter has the ‘right’ style, is to translate adult fashion information to your little fashionista’s wardrobe.

This week on Vogue.co.uk, their shopping list was all about texture.

To follow suit, but with a childish twist, we chose some texture-ific pieces from our favorite SS10 children’s collections including Cacharel, Rare The Kid, No Added Sugar, Simple Kids, Roberto Cavalli, Torres, Antik Batik and D&G Junior:

The Good Kind of Tantrum



When we were kids, going for a haircut was far from fun. If you were lucky, you would get a lolly to suck on as

the hairdresser talked with your parents about the weather and chopped away, ignoring you, while you shifted

uncomfortably on the stack of phone books or booster chair you were sat on.


Today, children have a lot more choices for their salon needs, including London based children’s salon, Tantrum.


Set up to give parents and children a new experience, this child centred salon hosts world class stylists, guaranteed

 to give your kids a tear and boredom free experience.


The Salon is split into two levels to cater to the older and younger crowd separately. The ground floor, called Moon,

is for kids aged 7 and under and features a ceiling that mimics the night sky, a miniature locomotive train complete

with sound and steam, fairytale inspired wall murals, play area, individually themed styling chairs and combined flat

screen TV and DVD player at each station.


Downstairs is the 8 and up area called Vogue, which portrays a dressing room glamour theme, juice bar, games room,

hangout area, TV and DVD combo at each station and a pair of fire spot stingrays called Bert and Ernie.


Tantrum has also developed its own kids hair care range that will allow you to take their stress free hair experience from

the salon to your bathroom.


Both the salon and hair care line are not for profit and were established to donate its profits to the tantrum for kid’s charity,

which supplies children’s books to schools and hospitals throughout the UK. Founders, Neil Ambler and Latasha

Malik wereinspired by their past volunteering and fundraising work and set out to create a business that would

support their charity.


Tantrum is located at  398 Kings Road, London, SW10 0LJ. To make an appointment, please call 0207 376 3966.
