KIDS AT PLAY THIS SUMMER IN FUNKY SWEDISH CLOTHES FOR ALL WEATHERS Monday 19 May 2008 PDF Print Oh we do like to be beside the seaside, so for a summer holiday that’s full of play, a heady dash of bright colours and a hint of Scandinavian traditional dress, look to Swedish childrenswear experts Polarn O. Pyret. At PO.P you’ll find children’s clothes and accessories in strong, beautiful and playful colours, with fabrics and designs that mix and match just as well as a bucket and spade. From fairytale toadstool and ladybird prints to traditional style Swedish embroideries and ginghams, there’s a lot to tempt this season. And because the cotton in PO.P’s range is so hardwearing, there’ll be plenty of time for your children to wear the clothes, then just pass them on to little brothers, sisters and friends. In fact on ebay in PO.P’s native Sweden, second hand clothes from the 70’s ranges still fetch a high price, as people buy them for their ‘retro cool’ factor, as well as their tough quality and enduring styles. PO.P’s summer fabrics will also help keep your children cool in the warmer weather, with natural cottons and linens featuring prominently in all collections. From PO.P’s eco cottons for its newborn range, to sunwear that offers the strongest protection against harmful UV rays, PO.P continues to look for the best ways to keep both kids and parents happy when temperatures rise outside. PO.P’s philosophy is all about ‘letting children be children’, so all items are produced with this in mind – PO.P’s focus is on quality, function and design. Many of PO.P’s designs have a distinctively unisex feel, and are featured in the store as a ‘Uni’ offer. Rather than fitting into gender stereotypes - jeans and tops have been designed to suit both boys and girls, and to co-ordinate with jackets, skirts, socks, and hats. So it’s pink trims for boys and blue flowers for all, to ensure you get the most for your money this year. Jo Nilsson, marketing director at PO.P comments: “We are very proud of our Summer collection which is has traditional styles alongside really bright, playful colours and patterns. Everything washes beautifully, with colour and shape remaining strong wash after wash. The clothes we produce stay looking smart and can withstand the most rugged outdoor treatment.” PO.P can be found in House of Fraser stores in Oxford Street, London (0-8 years), Manchester (0-8 years), Jenners Edinburgh (0-8 years) and Norwich (0-8 years) and Belfast (0-8) years.
