Mini Preen SS15
By chance my nine year old daughter and I seem to be wearing so many similar clothes these days which seems only natural to me. What I seem to buy, I also like for her and she mostly appreciates too. Luckily we are moving out of the pink stage. However I am not talking about exact versions of the same outfit but the wardrobe staples like denim dresses & dungarees, breton tops, most recently a summer trench and because it’s me and my obsession, a jumpsuit! Mini Preen always shoot their campaigns with mother and daughter versions of the same outfit, Barbour adult and children’s sizes are selling like hot-cakes as are Hunter wellies for both generations and of course not forgetting Petit Bateau’s iconic yellow raincoat or mariniere.
Around £5 billion worth of children’s clothing is sold in the UK each year so it’s no wonder that children’s fashion is going from strength to strength with many high profile designers getting in on the act. Here’s my little selection of mini-me style.
1. Adult: Denim dress at Top Shop, Child: Tommy Hilfiger dress at Smallable | 2. Adult: Navy Jumpsuit at Mango, Child: Buttoned jumpsuit at Zara | 3. Adult: Breton top at Petit Bateau, Babe & Tess top at Smallable | 4. Adult: Stone trench at Fashion Union, Child: Trench at Mango
