Lion of Leisure
Sometimes, there are kids clothes that look so cool that I wished that they exist for adults, too. That was as well the case when I discovered the Belgian brand Lion of Leisure at a pre-Christmas Pop-Up shops of The Cool Heads here in Amsterdam. When I saw these kids tees with hand printed animal prints and catchy slogans, I just thought that I would love to have these for myself. That’s actually what I asked Matthew Grove and Saskia Solberg, the duo behin Lion of Leisure, when I met them at the Playtime fair in Paris a week ago. “Can you please make these for adults, too?” Although, I wasn’t the only one who had made this request, the duo decides to focus on their coeur de metier: making quality clothes for the little ones. And they do it well!
The collection offers tees, shirts, onesies and soft toys for babies and kids, all featuring original designs by Matthew that are hand printed with biodegradable ink on organic cotton and come in a nice cotton bag. Available as of 25 EUR for the tees and 12,50 EUR for the toys, you can find their products at various shops throughout the world.
My favorites are the playing baboons and the big lion but when I look at the baby tee prints it gets even more difficult to choose. Which one would you choose?
