Playtime 2011: Fall Fashion

my favorite children's trade show rolled through town this weekend for a second edition. when playtime debuted its new york edition last year, i had just started this blog, so it was nice to see familiar faces and reconnect! i saw so many wonderful new things that i couldn't post all of it. this is just hightlights. more to come over the year. (sorry for the crazy spacing. blogger, your days are numbered!!!)

this year they feature a pop-up shop that is open to public and has many exclusive items. i think next year if they do
the shop they should move it to street level to get more traffic, it was a bit empty every time i walked by.
am 100% obsessed with easy peasy shoes. these two styles are limited edition artist collaborations and come in those cute little pouches. i forgot to take a picture of the soles--trust me they are amazing!wovenplay sweatshirt with screened detail and crazy amazing screen printed striped trousers art installation by joshua ben longothe fall collection at nico nico features splashes of vibrant screen printed color including my current favorite color this electric or klein blue, which pops up in a couple of collections... the team at esp no. 1. will bring more unisex loveliness to stores this fall, and, yes, that beautiful blue!

more of my new york peeps...clover new york is adding knit pieces this fall with accents of that insense blue that i love.
amazing to meet the ladies at bobo choses in person (and to pick up an item for a giveway...shhh)! whooo do you think their story will be about this fall?
and lots of navy and gold. 
winter water factory has some adorable new graphic tees and onesies. the new all-over-print blankets, now have impossibly soft fleece lining.
my dear friend at little lark had a cheerful booth and lots of new tees. i am especially crazy about this  hen design.
bora bora baby debuted this year with these whimsical--almost psychedelic--graphic onesies. pufferfish balloons! amazing.

little esop took it to the next level with their booth!
 mark your calendar this fall... sherpa lined bensimon sneakers are coming!
 it was really fun to reconnect with the people at a for apple. the fall line is inspired by school, both academic (preppy) and athletic (jocks!) i was feeling these preppy pieces.
lastly, but not least, these sweet fabric wallstickers from the australian company mae. the detail is really special--can you see the tattoos on the tiger lady?

  3. Terrific post on Playtime! Good thing I wasn't there or else I'd have spent my vacation savings at the Pop Up shop. Sherpa Bensimons looks amazing though probably not wearable for my kiddo who'd find them too 'hot'. lol. Would've loved to have met you all there too. Always a next time..
