Soor Ploom captures a nostalgic longing for simplicity



Our new love…

We have a breath of fresh air in the boutique that goes by the sweet name of Soor Ploom. Designed and made in Brooklyn, New York, this is a fresh, timeless collection of cotton and linen loveliness in the most beautiful hues.

Soor Ploom makes us dream of summer days of endless play when time is forgotten and light cooling cotton touches the skin. It is simple, understated style that the designer Marissa Buick has so talentedly created.
I really do feel that Marissa has captured some nostalgic longing in her collection.  It's as if you have opened a vintage suitcase of perfectly pressed linen clothes in the exact designs that you have pictured in your mind for your own little girl to wear! And wear them she will…

The Oona Romper has become a classic style by Soor Ploom, in ochre or blue stripes .
New is the Olive Romper in the most feminine soft clay colour and the beautiful Lois playsuit in the Liberty garden print.  Then there's the Lark, Edie and Prim Dress, the Maude playsuit and the Clova top - names that sound so vintage and adorable.  These are pieces that will be cherished for summer and last a lovingly long time for the next generations to come. Thank you Marissa!

Bobo Choses SS16 - Der Blaue Reiter



Each season Bobo Choses release a collection born with a story and characters of its own. A special, unique and meaningful collection. There are handmade illustrations alongside carefully selected materials like, textured raffia and indigo waffle, pointelle cotton and the softest denim we love. Founded in 2008 with the idea of creating a clothing brand that could speak to children in their own magical and passionate language. Bobo Choses core values are creativity, passion, honesty and always a sense of fun.



The story of the collection "Der Blaue Reiter" ( The blue rider) refers to a group of Russian and German artists united in a movement fundamental to expressionism. This group led by Kandinsky and Franz Marc shared a desire to express spiritual truths the symbolism of colour, the importance of spontaneity and intuition. It is the base of the inspiration and the story behind the SS16 collection by Bobo Choses.







The freedom of colour and expression bursts through the collection with prismatic colours and abstracted forms. A key piece of Kandinsky's work the, "blue rider" depicts a horse and rider , an apparent symbol for 'moving beyond realistic representation' and the horse a symbol or rebirth. Bobo Choses reflect this so brilliantly & playfully in the Spring collection resonating this idea with fresh spontaneous colour, vibrant imagination and playful shapes. Fauvist pears are seen alongside bohemian stripes and wonderful shapes take a Matisse-like expression whilst there are nods to Pablo Picasso, Vincent Van Gogh and of course Vasily Kandinsky and Franz Marc. 









Inspiring, naturalistic, bright, colourful, and always imaginative Bobo Choses celebrate colour and  spirituality of this early movement in their, as always, intuitive way. They have once again delighted and surprised us with their latest collection, playful and imaginative and spontaneous. This is the magic of Bobo Choses. It is the brand that speaks the language children speak. 




Only a little longer to wait. Der Blaue Reiter Launches 19th January at 10 am GMT

The Unknown Mountain Journey



Autumn - Winter '15/16


 Bobo Choses Collection:


The Unknown Mountain Journey




















"Once upon a time there was a clothing brand that spoke the language children speak”

Inspired by nature; its patterns, its colours, its shapes, The Unknown Mountain Journey has a graceful feel that seems to whisper the magic of the wild. 
Elegant colours go along with bold prints that reveal the secrets of the unknown mountain: talking horses, flocks of pointillist birds, crayon-coloured leaves, funny foxes, rubber-stamp forests and many more.

Handmade illustrations give the collection an attentive feel whilst the careful selection of colours; ochre, mustard, teal and navy hold the elements of natures surroundings giving the collection its earthly roots.  The unknown mountain journey instinctively feels like something familiar, something dear and wonderful. This is the magic of Bobo Choses. Cleverly reflecting the sky and the earth in a romantic capsule ready for the new seasons adventures.
