Cute Winter Clothing has arrived for AW14/15

Our first official clothing season has started and we are so excited. Our gorgeous new baby & children’s clothing line features a range of fabric collections and designs in ages NB through to 2 years.

One of my favourite collections is the Winter Cotton Collection. The gorgeous designs are just the begging with this lot! The cotton is super thick and cosy, unexpectedly thick especially with the little body suit. A stand out for me is the little 2 piece outfits ‘Little Striped Lass’ & ‘Little Pink Petal’, they have pretty body suits & little trousers that are part track pant, part harem pant, making for a cute, stylish & really warm little outfit. You can see below….too cute!

From little two piece outfits to cute onsies for little boys and little girls, I’m sure you will find the right outfit for your little fashionista! Because this is our first season, the sizes are limited so if you like what you see…buy buy buy!

We also have a green and grey monster style for crazy little monsters AND on the back of our popular ‘Rocket Man’ pyjamas, we have a newly invented rocket style. These three fun styles will be available in ages 2-8 years and are made from 100% soft jersey cotton 🙂

Our gorgeous winter pyjamas will have your little ladies wanting to spend all day in her new pyjamas!

 

So, now for the fun bit! We want your kooky little tots to be our models! Here’s how it works, we will be doing a couple of shout outs on facebook over the next 3 weeks for at home models. Post cute pics of your children,  if they are picked we will send you a pair of pyjamas. Then, you and your  little tot get to have a little photoshoot of them before bed, in their new Minene pyjamas. Send us your favourite images and we will use them on our website, Facebook, House of Fraser pages and more. And of course, your little one gets to keep the pyjamas – for all their hard work 🙂

All pyjamas will be live online from Friday 19th September! 🙂

Minene clothing launches in style, with #mineneslittlehelper and her cute frilly romper

We are super excited to launch the beginning of Minene Fashion in the UK – little fashion for little ones!

The high summer collection, Pretty Little things, launched earlier this month and we have had an amazing response! The clothing is based on vintage designs and made from a range of fabrics including cottons, lycra, lace and more.

Pretty Frilly Romper

Pretty Frilly Romper – white floral with pink bows

The best part about all of this, a part from putting our stamp on the fashion industry of course…..

I got to spend 3 lovely sunny days in the garden with my favourite little poppet, Miss Emmie, AKA #mineneslittlehelper . She has come a long way since her first modelling experience, I think it was the I love Mummy muslins and she was just 3 months old!!

She wore all of the outfits so well, but then again I am bias! We blew bubbles, bounced on the tramp, played on the swings and climbed up the ladder to the hut; all in the name of getting the best photo! and having a little fun too 😉

My favourite photo was Emmie in her Pretty Floral Romper. Both designs were just made for her! They are pretty, just like Emmie, yet hard wearing and durable! They survived the play ground, the tramp and rolling in the grass!

I managed to get a more demure image of her, after all the rough and tumble of the day! Although, the leopard print bows tells the real story…. 😉

Pretty Frilly Romper

Minene’s summer collection is available online now, we only have a few of each size so be sure to snap up anything you like the look of!

I will be sure to share more outfits over the next few weeks, like all clothing it is so much easier to see the full look when it is on a little person….or big!

Enjoy your heatwave Thursday! xx

Minene’s #minenemodelhunt works a treat, for new girls pyjamas!

At Minene, we love thinking out side of the box. Whether we are designing new products, coming up with fun gift ideas or thinking of ways to show off our products, we like try new things.

When looking at the cute new children’s pyjamas for summer 2014, we were exactly the same! Of course we have our beautiful Emmie in the office, the perfect model, who could have put on the pyjamas and smiled for the camera, but that’s what we did last season….so it would not do!

We had a brainstorm and decided to take to trusty Facebook. We wanted to see if any of you thought you had the perfect little Minene model, who could show off the gorgeous Minene Girls Pyjamas….and you certainly answered! Now we would like to introduce you to the special little ladies who became our 2014 Summmer Pyjama Models 🙂

Introducing the lovely Isabella, she is 2 years old and a cheeky wee natural in front of the camera, already!

Our new season’s girls pyjamas are on trend with a light cotton swing top and matching shorts, with frill and bow detail. These lovely pyjamas are 100% soft cotton, available in ages 1-5 years of age and come lovingly gift packaged in a Minene organza gift bag.

We will be bring you more #minenemodelhunt models over the next few days! And of course, we haven’t forgotten the boys! They will be popping up in their cute pyjamas, too! xx

Minene are giving you a sneaky look behind the scenes….

You may have noticed that Minene have been a little quite of late, less tweets, facebook updates and blog! Well there is a reason… we have just finished launching some fabulous new products for SS2014 and AW2015 at the Harrogate Nursery Fair.

The show was only for trade customers, however we thought we would give you a look at the stand and some of the gorgeous new products that will be headed your way very soon!!

We were able to show off our amazing new Pushchair Accessories range, these included Reversible Liner & Strap sets, which will be in stock from mid May. We have beautiful florals, pretty polka dots, cheeky checks and stripes on offer!

Pushchair Liner, Stroller Liner - With Straps

From pretty florals to fresh checks & stripes. The liners will give any pushchair an injection of summer colour

The new Ella Changing Bag was also on show, seen above in the vibrant Red, our new Changing Bags had a lot of positive comments! Like the Layla Changing Bag, it can be worn as a backpack, shoulder bag or attached to the stroller. It has gorgeous colourful lining and a range of useful goodies inside.
