When we were first introduced to the fantastic brand, Atticus and Gilda we couldn't help but be enthralled by the designs and fabrics. The founders and designers of the brand, Conchita-Maria Scott and Lucy Gaiger, both worked in costume design and styling before setting up the business and all garments are made using trimmings sourced from years working in theatres all over the world. Every piece has a bit of theatre history sewn right into it!
Atticus & Gilda is a clothing brand of children's nightwear and accessories. All the clothing is inspired by the theatre and has a traditional feel to it with the inclusion of bloomers, pin-tucks, mother of pearl buttons and chinese inspired pyjamas. Their stunning accessories include beautiful capes and magical headbands using elaborate fabrics and trimmings - perfect for parties or flowergirls and bridesmaids.
Their newest addition is this beautiful Kitty Kimono. Lucy & Conchita sent us a sample to try along with the matching sleep mask and when we opened the parcel, both my daughters gasped with delight. The beautiful colours and print of this 100% cotton kimono is just right for summer and would even make the perfect beach cover up or even just a light layer over a simple vest and jeans.
Pippa tried it on with the matching kitty sleep mask and was ready for bed! Not before I took some snaps of her though!
Such a beautiful piece that your child will treasure and the fab reversible kitty sleep masks would make fantastic gifts too. For all those with boys, don't worry, they don't have to miss out as there is a boy's version coming soon! Can't wait to see it!
The Kitty Kimono is £38 and the sleep mask and bag is £25 , both from Atticus & Gilda
