The Autumn Winter 2013 campaign images for the Norwegian children’s fashion brand Mole Little Norway is finally out. And it’s another beautiful collection, in pastels combined with deep purple and chocolate brown with fine knits in soft and comfortable alpaca, lamb and merino wool.
The Mole Little Norway AW13 will arrive in stores very soon. Meanwhile, hope you’ll enjoy a small preview of the new collection here.
The images is captured by Norwegian photographer Geir Øyvind Gismervik. The nostalgic hats, that goes so well with the various of garments based on traditional Norwegian knitting patterns, are from Swedish CTH Mini.
With a colour palette based on sun bleached paint, Mole Little Norway takes us straight back to those lazy days at the summer house. The sort of day where you as a child used to have no plans when running out after breakfast, other than exploring and playing with your friends. The days with no clouds, only fun times riding the bike and swimming in the lake, before cooling of on the porch with mums homemade ice cold squash, served from a large jug.
The styles are timeless and comfortable, the knit is in delicate cotton, soft next to skin. The dresses and beautiful jumpers ensures comfort as well as your child will be well dressed for all occasions. The playful striped one-piece suit are made for play and activity. Put a sunhat on top and they are ready to go fishing for crabs!
Mole Little Norway creates children’s fashion for boys and girls 0-12 years old. See more about this Norwegian brand online at mole.no
Children and wool was part of my inspiration to start up this blog. In Scandinavia the children are dressed in wool throughout the colder months to keep dry and warm. And even though the UK is wet, windy and cold during Autumn and Winter, with temperatures dropping to sub zero, whilst the arctic winds sweeps trough the country, the children would be dressed in cotton and artificial fleece to keep warm.
Knowing the benefits of a natural material like wool and also having experienced the super soft qualities of Merino and Alpaca wool in addition to beautiful silk wool blends and wool fleece we have available nowadays, it would a shame not to share it.
In Scandinavia wool is a large part of every child’s winter wardrobe. And it’s not only the hat and scarf that is in the warming material. Most importantly is what’s next to skin; underwear, tee and tights. There’s also a wonderful selection of knitted jumpers, beautiful dresses and funky knitted trousers, There’s socks and baby booties, hooded coats and ponchos, baby sleeping bags, blankets and toys -all in wool.
In the UK it seems hard to find wool clothes for children. In Scandinavia most childrenswear shop would have a dedicated wool section. Changing the way parents dress their children, or opening up to new materials (when all the parents can remember is acrylic jumpers and itchy wool) is not happening over night. But importnat evnets like the Wool Week, supported by HRH the Prince of Wales, is trending. And there’s lovely blog inspiration via sites Wool Rocks, to get you started on your own wool project. However, with a slightly limited crafty talent, we love sites like MorMor that provides home knits -if you don’t master the knitting pins yourself. And as wool is trending, more and more International shops are not only including but specialsing in wool; Mayamin London, Ella’s Wool New York, The Island Wool Company, Faroe Island Next time you’re shopping for kids clothes, check the tag -look out for wool!

We went to visit the lovely designer Hanne from Mole Little Norway during Oslo Fashion Week, at Moteforum. She showed a lovely little collection of summery cotton knits in soft shades of green, blue, orange and yellow. The stripy sweaters and onesuits with wooden button detail are cute. Mole Little Norway have with its nostalgic touch become very popular.

Mole Little Norway have sizes from baby up to 12 years. But Hanne mentioned extending the size range up to 16 years. Good news for our Little B that are currently wearing a size 12 years! Although the SS13 are cute we really love the more traditional Norwegian wool knit sweaters for Autumn Winter -with the red sweater in the photo among our favourites.
So on possibly the hottest day in London so far this summer I’ve chosen to show you children’s wear for the coldest days…
A bright red sewing machine at the tender age of 10 would be the start of an amazing career within design and fashion for Hanne Synnove Koloy. Today the Norwegian born designer produces wonderful clothes all in soft wool under the label Mole. HRH Crown Princess Mary, as a ambassador for Scandinavian fashion and children’s fashion has already recognized the brand and chosen to dress her own children in Mole Little Norway. Sizes ranging from 0-12 years old.
