supportive mother. She is<br />

no doubt the most beautiful<br />

person I will ever have the<br />

privilege of knowing, if I can<br />

be one thing, being more<br />

like my mom would be it.

the<br />

editor’s note<br />

With a never ending stream of disappointing TV<br />

news reel and a political climate so hot I feel like<br />

cranking the AC, it only seemed fitting to focus<br />

the latest issue of <strong>Poster</strong> <strong>Child</strong> <strong>Magazine</strong> on a<br />

positive message we can all get behind - GIRL<br />

POWER. Whether you are a girl, have a girl or<br />

are the child of a girl, I’m sure you agree!<br />

In the wake of the recent election I, like many<br />

others, felt pretty depleted. I really wanted to<br />

create something uplifting to send out into the<br />

world with the outlet we’ve created. So, we<br />

asked photographers to shoot GIRL POWER<br />

editorials. Boy did they deliver! We hope you<br />

feel as empowered and inspired as we did putting<br />

this issue together.<br />

What is the best thing about<br />

spring and your favourite<br />

trend for the season? Tag<br />

@posterchildmag in your<br />

Instagram pictures or<br />

comments!<br />

Can’t wait to hear from you!<br />

Together with Plan International, <strong>Poster</strong> <strong>Child</strong><br />

<strong>Magazine</strong> believes that gender equality is central<br />

to achieving long-term change in this world.<br />

We envision a world that values girls, promotes<br />

their rights and ends injustice! Because I am a<br />

Girl supports millions of girls in getting the education,<br />

skills and support they need to move<br />

from poverty to a future of opportunity.<br />

We are excited that proceeds from this issue<br />

of <strong>Poster</strong> <strong>Child</strong> <strong>Magazine</strong> will support this<br />

cause and empower girls in developing nations<br />

around the world!<br />

Lace Up For H&M’s<br />

Boxer and Ballerina<br />

Studio Collection<br />

Known for telling magical tales through<br />

each piece in every collection, H&M’s <strong>2017</strong><br />

<strong>Spring</strong>/Summer collection features casual,<br />

sporty apparel inspired by the athletic stages<br />

of boxing and ballet. Pernilla Wohlfahrt,<br />

H&M’s creative director, describes their newest<br />

season as a way to exhibit ballerinas and<br />

boxers “and the worlds which they inhabit.”<br />

In mixing delicate ruffles with relaxed hoodies<br />

and pairing boxing sneakers with reversible<br />

nylon bomber jackets, H&M’s latest line<br />

is all about blending together the different<br />

worlds of movement.<br />

Whether gearing up for the ring with a pair<br />

of tattoo-printed boxer shorts or arriving for<br />

warm-up wearing striped track pants before<br />

changing into a dress with a pintuck neckline,<br />

both narratives are driven by H&M’s<br />

LOVE detailing to applaud the display of<br />

compassion. The colour palette, along with<br />

the embellishments of gold crocodiles and<br />

heart prints, sticks closely to the theme of<br />

harmonizing contrast using red, black, white<br />

and gold throughout the collection. As for<br />

accessories, the selection will include tattoo-printed<br />

tights - a bottom to easily tuck<br />

into unisex boxing sneakers or classic ballet<br />

footwear - and LOVE sweatbands to keep<br />

inside a swan-like backpack with mandatory<br />

jump rope.<br />

Designed with the creative impulse to integrate<br />

the softness of ballet with the edginess<br />

of boxing, the stage-ready collection<br />

will launch on March 2nd in select stores<br />

and online.<br />

Brand New Cybex<br />

MIOS Stroller Is All<br />

About Fashionable,<br />

Effortless Movement<br />

Channeling inspiration from Charles and<br />

Ray Eames’ influential designs and creative<br />

confidence, Cybex has released the MIOS<br />

stroller to add to their notable assortment<br />

of baby carriers, car seats, and strollers<br />

designed for the industrial landscape of a<br />

modern lifestyle.<br />

Catering to urban parents on the go with<br />

an aesthetic nostalgia for retro-design, the<br />

MIOS offers flexibility, all wheel-suspension,<br />

and an innovative structure taken from designs<br />

of the past but modified for contemporary<br />

functionality.<br />

Along with its easily expandable and contracting<br />

light-weight frame and adjustable<br />

sun canopy, the MIOS supports a convenient<br />

3-in-1 travel option that adapts as children<br />

grow and require alternative travelling arrangements.<br />

Together with fashion-forward<br />

features - including snack trays and insect<br />

protectors - and a compact design to move<br />

effortlessly through confined spaces, the<br />

MIOS also provides a child with a natural<br />

cooling system thanks to its breathable and<br />

comfortable fabrics. Available in a variety of<br />

canopy colours and stylish prints, the MIOS<br />

design is intelligently practical and ideal for<br />

travelling around city terrain with ease.<br />

Wolf & Rita x JC de<br />

CASTELBAJAC Paris<br />

SS17: Designing<br />

Happyculture<br />

Combining art with sophisticated design,<br />

the Wolf & Rita x JC de CASTELBAJAC<br />

<strong>2017</strong> <strong>Spring</strong> / Summer collaboration is a colourful<br />

medley of poetry, imagination, adventure<br />

and youthful curiosity.<br />

From busy, multi-coloured forest prints to<br />

simple, hand-drawn surrealist designs, the<br />

collection evokes a fantastical world that<br />

aids creative power. Along with accessories,<br />

the artistic European collaboration includes<br />

playful dresses, jumpers and swimsuits, as<br />

well as shirt and pant sets in primary shades<br />

of blue, yellow, red and green.<br />

Together with animal prints and Picasso-like<br />

cubism, the designs vary in shape and size<br />

to open up new means of expression via<br />

spirited children’s wear - all of which are<br />

consciously made locally, in Portugal. The<br />

original Parisian influence of JC de CASTEL-<br />

BAJAC Paris in tandem with Wolf & Rita’s<br />

modern take on traditionalism is uniquely<br />

brought together to experiment with their<br />

notion of Happyculture.<br />

Adidas Originals x<br />

Mini Rodini SS17 Part<br />

II: Rabbits, Rackets,<br />

And Runners<br />

Swedish illustrator, artist, founder and creative<br />

director of Mini Rodini, Cassandra<br />

Rhodin, and Adidas Originals continue their<br />

creative partnership with the second edition<br />

of a sporty SS17 collection scheduled for release<br />

on March 9th.<br />

Part two of the one-of-a-kind collection features<br />

cartoon-like rabbit and tennis graphics<br />

atop timeless light blue and pink Firebird<br />

tracksuits which are also displayed on<br />

sets, caps and innovative skort-like cuts.<br />

These selective pieces are complimented<br />

with a modified version of the classic Adidas<br />

Stan Smith model with a neutral knitted<br />

upper.<br />

Designed for boys and girls, the collection<br />

was created with Mini Rodini and Adidas<br />

Originals’ ethical, social and environmental<br />

standards in mind with all pieces thoughtfully<br />

made from organic cotton and recycled<br />

polyester. Likewise, the limited footwear<br />

designs are also environmentally conscious<br />

and are in part made from various recycled<br />

materials. The creative prints juxtaposed<br />

with classic Adidas athleisure is the perfect<br />

balance for catering to the imaginative lifestyle<br />

of the energetic youth.<br />

Upon its global release, the unique collection<br />

- geared to children ages 3 to 6 - will be<br />

available at Mini Rodini stores in Odengatan,<br />

Vallgatan and Skomakaregatan, as well<br />

“If you’re prepared<br />

and organized you<br />

are ready for any<br />

surprises or last<br />

minute curveballs.”<br />

Tell us a bit about yourself and Stroller In the City!<br />

I am both a full-time blogger and full-time mother. I used<br />

to work in the fashion industry. I owned my own showroom<br />

for years and sold it right before I had my first child<br />

in 2008.<br />

Where do you live and why do you love your<br />

neighbourhood?<br />

I live in Battery Park City in Manhattan. It feels like a little<br />

suburb of Manhattan…like a gated community. We’re<br />

still in the city but we are surrounded by parks.<br />

What is an ideal day with Ryder, Siella & Gemma like?<br />

Exploring different neighborhoods in the city together is<br />

always fun. We wander around, try new restaurants and<br />

play at the many playgrounds or museums that surround<br />

us.<br />

What is your secret to starting off the week on the<br />

right foot?<br />

Prep and organization…that’s pretty much my secret for<br />

life. If you’re prepared and organized you are ready for<br />

any surprises or last minute curveballs. I make sure to<br />

write lists of the things that need to get done, make sure<br />

my food shopping is complete for the week, and I even<br />

meal plan!<br />

Do you have an anti-stress remedy?<br />

I’d love to say that I meditate regularly but who has time?<br />

Taking a little “me time” is always a de-stresser. Even if it<br />

is a ten-minute walk or a solo lunch—sometimes checking<br />

in with me is the best way to decompress. It gives me<br />

the focus I need to handle other stressful situations with<br />

grace.<br />

We know you love to travel when you aren’t strolling<br />

the city. Where are you planning to visit this year?<br />

We have a few places in mind this year. We are heading<br />

to Disney World in a few weeks and will be experiencing<br />

a Disney Cruise for the first time. And we have plans to<br />

add a few ski trips this winter as well.<br />

What is your weekend routine with the family?<br />

We have sports practice and games on the weekends<br />

usually so we’re still running all over the place. But I like<br />

to have a big fun breakfast together at least one of the<br />

days. I also love to escape the city during the weekends<br />

so we are always taking day trips outside the city!<br />

What are your top five must-have items for <strong>Spring</strong><br />

<strong>2017</strong>?<br />

Hmmmm, I haven’t thought that far out yet, but I am<br />

thinking hats, boho dresses, and a great bag!<br />

Designer Q&A<br />

Outside The Lines<br />

After having worked for years in womenswear friends Philippa and Kate established<br />

Outside the Lines, a British girlswear brand brimming with sophistication,<br />

femininity and a sense of humour that appeals to girls and parents alike.<br />

32<br />

Outside the Lines is a brand new girlswear label<br />

established in 2016 by Philippa Cloete and Kate<br />

Please offering a carefully considered clothing collection<br />

for ages 3-10. The collection has a unique<br />

and contemporary feel infused with extra touches<br />

and includes all the pieces required for a capsule<br />

wardrobe for girls.<br />

The soft colour palette and investment in rich and<br />

interesting fabrics with little details, creates a relaxed<br />

and interchangeable look that appeals to<br />

free-spirited girls who wish to explore their own<br />

style.<br />

We had the pleasure of interviewing Philippa and<br />

Kate about their exciting new label. Read all about<br />

it in this issue’s designer Q&A!<br />

How and why did you launch Outside the Lines?<br />

We initially had the idea for Outside the Lines over<br />

18 months ago sitting in a restaurant in Paris brainstorming<br />

ideas for a girlswear label which was good<br />

quality yet still a considered purchase.<br />

Both of us have worked in womenswear and the<br />

fashion industry for a number of years for some<br />

of the biggest names on the high street including<br />

Next, Topshop and Marks & Spencer, and shared<br />

the same vision that there were plenty of girlswear<br />

brands at the designer and high street end of the<br />

market but very little in between. We really felt that<br />

there was a gap for a girlswear label that doesn’t<br />

compromise on quality but also doesn’t ‘break the<br />

bank’; thus Outside the Lines was born.<br />

We developed the name Outside the Lines which<br />

comes from the ethos that it’s ok for girls to colour<br />

‘outside the lines’, essentially to be creative and<br />

create their own style that is unique to them.


Designer Q&A<br />

34


What made you want to design for children?<br />

As parents ourselves to two girls (Philippa) and two<br />

boys (Kate), we dreamt of working together to create<br />

our own childrenswear label. As soon as we had<br />

children, we became obsessed with kids’ fashion<br />

but struggled to find good quality, stylish clothing<br />

for our own children that were still accessible. We<br />

are big fans of soft muted colours and the little finishing<br />

details that really make clothes stand out.<br />

What is your brand’s mission statement or goal?<br />

To offer a carefully considered yet affordable girlswear<br />

collection with plenty of style that doesn’t<br />

compromise on quality or design.<br />

What are the motivations or inspirations behind<br />

the SS17 designs?<br />

For <strong>Spring</strong> / Summer ‘17 we have created a collection<br />

that is inspired by global travel combining<br />

elements of bohemian ‘70s style with a more contemporary<br />

look for free-spirited girls who wish to<br />

explore their own style. With a nod to the folk trend,<br />

the 30-piece collection is presented in a colour palette<br />

of soft greys and neutral shades with ethnic<br />

handicraft touches in pops of neon, complemented<br />

by denim chambray workwear pieces with an Eastern<br />

influence. Folk-inspired tassels and pom-poms<br />

reminiscent of the ‘70s, make an appearance, keeping<br />

the bohemian spirit of this collection alive.<br />

Highlight pieces in the collection include the all-inone<br />

playsuit punctuated with white embroidery, the<br />

pom-pom tapestry jacket in accents of neon and<br />

the white lace petticoat dress with pretty tie closure<br />

for the back - perfect for a summertime look.<br />

Is there a style decade you are inspired by?<br />

There is no particular decade we are particularly<br />

inspired by but we like to design classic pieces<br />

for girls that can be dressed up or down and won’t<br />

date.<br />

What makes your label stand out in the<br />

industry?<br />

We have spent a long time ensuring we offer great<br />

quality yarns and fabrics that are soft and luxurious<br />

in beautiful textures and cool patterns - perfect<br />

for layering or making a statement on their own.<br />

The investment in rich and interesting fabrics and<br />

the unique designs really sets us apart from other<br />

brands.<br />

What do you have coming up that you are really<br />

excited about?<br />

We have just finished showing our AW17 collection<br />

at Playtime Paris, the childrenswear tradeshow, and<br />

we were delighted to receive such a positive response<br />

from stockists all over the world so we look<br />

forward to Outside the Lines going global.<br />

What is/are your favourite item/s from the<br />

current collection?<br />

Philippa: My favourite pieces from the SS17 collection<br />

are the pompom tapestry jacket, the frilled<br />

sleeve trimmed stripe tee and the chambray dress.<br />

Kate: The navy embroidered all-in-one playsuit, the<br />

frill sleeve waistcoat and the sequin swing vest are<br />

some of my favourite pieces from this collection.<br />

Designers Philippa and<br />

Kate invite you to vist<br />

new <strong>Spring</strong> and<br />

Summer <strong>2017</strong><br />

spotlight<br />

With warm weather on the horizon,<br />

or perhaps a spring break<br />

getaway planned, you are no<br />

doubt daydreaming about<br />

lounging poolside or basking on the<br />

beach with your family.<br />

With years of expertise designing beautiful<br />

swimwear for women, Envya Kids<br />

offers a perfect balance of chic and<br />

playful swim fashions that we’ve fallen<br />

in love with. Whatever your taste, Envya<br />

has adorable swimsuits that are guaranteed<br />

to make a splash this year!<br />

We asked the Envya team to tell us a bit<br />

about their kids’ collection in this quick<br />

Q&A.<br />

What can you share about the brand<br />

Envya for those who aren’t familiar?<br />

Inspired by the lifestyle of the free-spirited<br />

SoCal girls, Envya Collection was<br />

designed to fit perfectly into a laid-back<br />

beach lifestyle. The fusion of playful yet<br />

edgy silhouettes creates an effortless<br />

balance of bold and contemporary sophistication.<br />

Our collections are distributed<br />

in over 20 countries, throughout<br />

boutiques, resorts and Online stores.<br />

What inspired you to introduce a<br />

collection for girls?<br />

It started with a women’s line collection<br />

in 2009. Combining our passion with<br />

over 20 years’ industry experience and<br />

manufacturing techniques, not only we<br />

desire to create fashion pieces for women,<br />

but for the little ones as well, so we


continue to spread positivity, creativity<br />

and above all, fun to the children’s market.<br />

We came up with a collection for kids<br />

as a mini reflection, from size 4 to 12,<br />

with clean lines and practical details.<br />

We highlight a child’s natural beauty using<br />

eye-catching colors and cute prints,<br />

focusing on well-made, great fitting<br />

garments with safe fabric and materials.<br />

What are you influenced by?<br />

I search for new things all the time.<br />

My inspiration comes from trips to the<br />

ocean seaside, places like Spain, Caribbean<br />

where I found the quaint old<br />

beach towns, interesting street styles,<br />

bold and colorful architecture; the kids<br />

around, the things they say, their look<br />

and their imaginations!<br />

What are the themes for the new<br />

collection?<br />

This summer the theme will be playful,<br />

with bright color-blocks, prints like<br />

pineapples, waves, and floral. We also<br />

added some sweet details and appliqués<br />

like flower buds, pompoms and<br />

cute bows. Splashing in the water will<br />

be extra fun with our different range of<br />

girl’s swim collection.<br />

"Tell your daughter she is beautiful. But teach<br />

her that beauty is found in intelligence, in<br />

confidence, in kindness and in perseverance."


54<br />

"Utilize their strengths in a positive way. Encourage their dreams.<br />

Let them fail, so they learn how to fix problems. As a mom, it's<br />

hard to watch our kids stumble. However, I have found that it's<br />

the "getting back up" that teaches the best lessons."

It is important that every collection captures the<br />

magical personalities of the children.<br />

When shopping for her son, Ada couldn’t find<br />

pieces she liked and began looking overseas. She<br />

had the idea of opening up a children Online store<br />

but didn’t begin the process of creating Minimodel<br />

Gallery until maternity leave with her daughter. She<br />

used the time to put on a customer hat and build<br />

her website with a personal perspective.<br />

"Don't be afraid to let them explore and to express themselves by<br />

way of small rebellions and decisions. Let them know that it is okay<br />

to learn from their mistakes and celebrate their strengths... If you<br />

foster a strong, courageous girl, she will be an independent thinker<br />

who will stand up for herself as well as support others in need!"


58<br />

"Constantly remind them of the power they have to do and become anything and<br />

everything they want. I started my business by finding my passion and staying<br />

true to my voice and what I had to offer the world. I want my daughters<br />

to know that they possess a perfect combination of special talents that make<br />

them uniquely them and that as long as they are true to what they love,<br />

all things are unapologetically possible."
