I love an artist x childrenswear collaboration and this is a good one. Swedish lifestyle store Arket has teamed up with Hastings-based illustrator Nina Chakrabarti on a small collection of clothing and homewares with an undersea theme. I’ve been a fan of Nina’s artwork since I first spotted her book My Wonderful World of Fashion, so this is a delight.
I particularly like the t-shirt dress, £17, storage boxes, £19 for two, cotton blanket, £35, and recycled swim shorts, £25. There are also shorts, leggings, sweatshirts, caps, t-shirts and a very cool bath towel. I find Arket’s kidswear really good quality compared to many brands, so it’s reasonably priced as well.
