bonton - SS21
since adding bonton to our collections, it has quickly achieved a "cult brand" following and become one of the most coveted collections each season. its easy to understand why: since it's start in 2001, bonton prides itself on timeless, premium-quality clothing that serves every moment of children’s lives.
with their typical french savoir-faire, the brand pays particular attention to elaborate embroidery, prints and the use of natural fabrics. comfort is never at the expense of stylish and modern styles, always incorporating vibrant color palettes and their iconic hearts print.
as the brand celebrates its 20th year of business, it's hard to ignore bonton's roots. as heirs to the renowned parisian children’s brand bonpoint, thomas cohen (son of the founders of bonpoint) and his wife, irene, decided to launch their own kids’ clothing and accessories line. we are so glad they did! the result: playful and comfortable styles kids want to wear, with the durability and high quality parents expect. we like to call that a win win :)
this year's spring summer collection features the standard liberty fabrics and signature heart print along with tie dye pieces and a beautiful "leaves" pattern. the baby sets make excellent newborn gifts for all the pandemic babies coming into the world, and are made from the softest 100% organic cotton. In fact, nearly all of the collection's pieces are 100% cotton or a cotton cashmere blend.
check out our favorite pieces from the new collection below:
these sweet heart print baby sets come in a dress and a blouse, with two different color options, but with each equally adorable - it's hard to choose our favorite!
in our opinion, there's nothing easier than bloomers for summer baby outfits - and these liberty floral and leaves bloomers mean they're not just easy, they're beautiful too.
the knit baby sets (and the knit cardigan in gaspacho red - further below) feature a pointelle heart knit that is at once delicate while still being extremely easy to wear.
the season's liberty print fabrics extend beyond the clothes and spill over onto accessories, like the summery baby hat and these fun hair bows.
the alina swim suit is one of the sweetest we've ever seen, with its pink gingham print and ruffles top and bottom.
the colorful ronoldo tee features the brand's inspirational phrase for the season: "tutti in spiaggia", which roughly translates to "everyone's at the beach".
the violet dress is the perfect summer piece - colorful and lightweight, with metallic threads running through it to give it a special shimmer.
we hope you find a piece (or a few) among these fun, easy styles that you absolutely adore! make sure to tag any photos of your littles wearing these with @kodomoboston and #kodomolittles on instagram so we can delight in your summer adventures along with you!
