It’s hot, hot, hot these days, mama! The summer holidays are dragging on (and on… and on…) and while some of you may have travelled out of the city to cooler climes, we’re sweltering in the heat. Why not cool down and have a gander at our summer picks for you and bubba in this month’s What Sassy Mama Wants?
We really really heart the products from MISCHA, our go-to brand for handbags and accessories. The upcoming capsule collection was designed after a visit to the Highlands of Scotland and we can definitely see the influence. It’s peppered with vibrant jewel tones, such as this beautiful red Madison Shoulder Bag. The classic hexagonal pattern peeks out on the sides… show that off on date night, mama!
The Madison Shoulder Bag is $1,690 and available from www.mischadesigns.com.
Bonpoint & YAM
Hold on to summer by getting your little one decked out in pieces from Bonpoint & YAM’s collection. We especially love the Alix Pink blouse, with a stunning pattern that’ll keep your kiddo cool, calm and ready for the beach. This works great over a pair of denim shorts or jeans, or simply over your little one’s swimsuit. The best part is, it’s made of 100% soft-to-the-touch cotton.
Available for $1,190 at Bonpoint stores around town:
Shop 325, Prince’s Building, 10 Chater Road, Central, Hong Kong; Shop 213, Lee Gardens Two, 28 Yun Ping Road, Causeway Bay, Hong Kong; Shop OTG 58, Ocean Terminal, Harbour City, Tsim Sha Tsui, Kowloon, Hong Kong
Gladiator shoes are always in fashion, which is why we love these Vilda sandals from Andrew Kayla. They’re summery and great for a beach getaway or a Sunday afternoon stroll around town in the sunshine. The colour will brighten up any outfit… just don’t forget to get a cool pedi done before slipping into these!
Available for $2,700 from Harvey Nichols, The Landmark, 15 Queen’s Road Central, Hong Kong or online here.
Move over Lego, Unit Bricks is the new kid on the block! Get your little ones learning their addition while getting creative as they build whatever they like with these 100% sustainable wooden blocks. Suitable for early learners, kids will increase their sensory awareness and hand-eye coordination as they build castles, drawbridges, buildings and more with the bricks in the pack!
The 40-piece Mini Unit Bricks Builder Set is $348 and available online here.
If you’ve got active little angels who are always after clothing that’s more sporty and easier for rough and tumble play, check out the products at Australian brand ALFIE. Items are made of 100% cotton jersey and designed in-house. We especially love this black and white tank stripe dress… it makes us want to indulge in an ice lolly while playing in the park!
Available online from www.alfieapparel.com.
what the frock?!
Sweating through a crisp white shirt is just so unbecoming in this weather, mama. Sure, white keeps you cool, but this classic wrap dress from what the frock?! will keep you even cooler. You’ll be super comfortable rocking this look day or night. The turquoise and white print is perfect for summer, too!
Available for $799 from www.whatthefrock.net.
UGG x Inside Out
Inside Out is, well… out in cinemas as of last week! The characters in the film have inspired UGG’s latest capsule collection for tweens. Think bright patterns and colours, great for kiddos to go running out in the playground in. We especially love these bright red slip-on shoes with the brand’s plush lining, which will brighten up any little tyke’s day.
Available for $690 online here.
