Apolina Kids: Nostalgic Autumnal Outfits for Your Little One

Autumn is the season of style, this we all know. It’s the time of year when it’s cold enough to layer, yet warm enough to go without a coat. Each year the streets flood with impeccable Autumn/Winter outfits, however, previously it seemed this autumnal sense of style was solely focused on adult apparel. Thankfully, with elite children’s clothing brands that are working to transform the world of children’s clothes to include timeless, authentic pieces, this is no longer the case.

Let’s take a look at the brand that is leading in this transformation of children’s style. Apolina is the children’s brand that was born out of a desire to create a more authentic, timeless yet modern style, with longevity and a sense of craft. What makes this brand so different is that although it is designed in England, it is apparent through each unique piece that it is inspired by travel and handicrafts from different cultures around the world. What’s more, the neutral colour palettes of the clothes look effortlessly gorgeous on, with autumnal chocolates and subtle beiges.

Yet whilst it’s lovely for these outfits to look dainty and elegant, it’s important to remember who will be wearing these outfits: children. Something we may all well be aware of by now, is that this means they need to be durable, comfortable, and functional. Luckily, Apolina is clearly a brand that knows children, and have considered this in their design.

These pieces have relaxed silhouettes that will ensure children are comfy and can play freely without restrictions, as well as promising an increased wear-time. What’s more, to encourage minimal waste and maximum wear, each style has been designed to be layered up or dressed down depending on the weather. That’s right, these pieces can be worn all through the autumn straight into the winter! Apolina is a children’s brand that has been crafted to be passed down to younger siblings, even potentially grandchildren.

Apolina’s AW22 collection started with a whimsical, mid-century scarf print that marries the themes of nature, craft and colour. Embroideries have an eclectic craft inspiration – hand embroidered florals delight, alongside retro folk prints that would be right at home in a little cabin window. A colour palette of mountains, moss and lakes evokes fresh air adventures and that precious childhood bond with nature.

The AW22 styles are designed with comfort in mind. Practical dresses and ‘everyday’ silhouettes feature statement embroideries. Beautiful blouses layer under pinafores and pair with sweet, easy-to-wear separates. Outfits are inspired by our children’s own unique styling – layering, warmth, comfort and an offbeat, relaxed style that’s perfect for adventuring outdoors. The collection was brought to life at an out-of-season ski chalet home in the mountains, where the children long for the magic of snow.
