Costume Crush

With Halloween just weeks away, where do you find cool costumes for your kids you both will love that they can wear and play dress-up in for months to come?  While searching for inspiration and ideas for our IC little ones we discovered these creations we couldn’t resist sharing…

For the under twos Mini Rodini has cool, functional childrenswear with a dress-up twist, including this below Expedition Alaska Overall and Bear Onesie.  Stella McCartney Kids’ current collection has a beyond hip David Bowie look and sweet little bunny outfit complete with rabbit shoes great for everyday.  One of our favourite discoveries is Woven Play that has by far the most unique collection of chic costumes for kids we’ve seen.  We especially love the cowgirl crop, cowboy, space voyager and pirate looks.  And for the creative DIY parents we are loving the chic crown and feather headdress below.  Of course at the end of the day we have no control over their requests for Spider-Man and Princess Elsa from Frozen, but we are keeping our fingers crossed!

Malevich: A Modern Icon

In 1915, Kazimir Malevich shifted the art world when he broke away from creating representational art and painted one groundbreaking square that changed it all. ‘The Black Square’ was the beginning of a new approach to art that Malevich pioneered called Suprematism. Non-objective and free from detail, he used geometry and colour to create a powerful, expressive voice reflecting his life during the Russian Revolution.

Walking from room to room through a Malevich timeline, the Tate Modern’s exhibition is a well-curated, comprehensive retrospective of his work.  Running through October 26th, there’s limited time left to visit this extraordinary art + history in person. For more information visit tate.org.uk .
