I know we´re heading towards winter.. but just imagine these with a turtle neck and tights... then we´d still have a bit of summer with our winter!! - I just love SMOCK.. and I love SMOKKS ... Not only because I can so very relate to how it came about..
"I just need clothes I can handle"…OH! my husbands famous last words…( such a dramatic statement was born from me being away and receiving a video of our daughter at her ballet graduation wearing her pajamas! OMG! i almost died..i almost cried!) (mothers would do a hundred buttons daily without question if it meant their daughters looked beautiful.!). Frantically I call home from Australia, not even caring about the time difference, to find out what went wrong! “she looked so cute” he said..”How would i even know they were pajamas he mysteriously joked….”because have you ever seen her in a chocolate brown outfit with a pink cat on the front”! That's really how SMOKKS began….and kinda so cute!
with 3 girls I´ve been there many a times.. sadly my older ones are a little old for these.. they suggested I write and tell the designer that these would make fantastic blouses too.. so a little note to the designer.. my girls would love these in blouses too!! I did suggest the Womens range but at aged 10 and 12.. they weren't impressed!
Smokks is a family run company, with a lot of input from the youngest, which in my humble opinion is probably the best way to go about designing.. they are the ones who are wearing these clothes and understand the need for pockets, how best they should function.. and of course, the correct length! AND not forgetting to implement a fathers need for easy and understandable dressing.. such a no buttons, no zips (Hurrah, I say to that, my pet hate !!) no hooks! .. and it looks like a dress!
ITS ALL ABOUT CHRISTMAS
