Baby Fashion: Corby Tindersticks

Since sharing April’s Me & Mine pictures (also the boys’ six month half-birthday update) I’ve had a few questions about the adorable bodysuits that they were wearing.  As sharing obscure finds is half of the fun, I would like to introduce you to Corby Tindersticks.

I can’t take credit for coming across this little treasure all by myself; these bodysuits were actually presented to me by the charming Gayle from Carry Me Home when I flung myself head-first into her boutique whilst on a lunch break from work, declared myself a terrible mother (I had no clothes for their photoshoot that evening) and demanded two jungle-themed outfits.

(I’ll be honest and mention that I could have spent a small fortune in Gayle’s shop.  She stocks many of my favourite brands such as Tootsa MacGinty, Boys&Girls and Mini Rodini, as well as brands that I had never heard of, like Corby Tindersticks and a few others.  If you’re based in London, she’s definitely worth a visit.  If you’re visiting London, likewise.  She’s based on Carnaby Street.)

The colours on these bodysuits really are as vibrant in ‘real life’ as they are in these pictures.  The predominant colours of yellow, turquoise and white are softened by shades of pink and mint across both bodysuits and that gorgeous orange in the case of the lion.

The designs are boldly outlined so as not to get lost in the bright colours.  It’s easy to tell that they were drawn by an illustrator and they look expensive, even though they’re only £20 each on the Corby Tindersticks online shop (or a little more if you purchase them from a different stockist).  Despite this, they’re comfortable to wear and the twins have complete freedom of movement in them.  They’re the perfect going-out-somewhere-nice choice for wriggly babies.

I love to support local brands and so it makes me happy that Corby Tindersticks is London-based, like us.  I’ll probably pick up more of their clothes as they’re released and I’m also seriously considering a print for my living room wall.

    These are gorgeous and look so lovely on the boys! I love supporting local and UK based clothing companies, the quality is so much better I find! I set up a sustainable children’s company recently after struggling to find sustainable bits and pieces. I also wanted to set it up to balance being a mum and also a creative individual once me and my partner swapped childcare roles, its http://www.facebook.com/avalonvintage x
