In Greek mythology Pero was the daughter of Neleus and Cloris and her beauty attracted many suitors, so much so, she got name checked in Homer’s Odyssey. For us, Pero is the childrenswear brand that dresses our daughters beautifully season after season. Lovely reclaimed lace and cotton in comfortable shapes and no ironing required! Legendary.
A big thank you to everybody who made it down for the opening of Hugo Yoshikawa’s show last Thursday night. The exhibition runs in-store until the 30th of March.
Couverture’s buying team have just returned from Paris with sacs un sacs of Madeleines and Macaroons, which have lasted almost a morning. Aside from the petit treats they also brought back plenty to look forward to fashion wise for Fall. A strict diary was needed as there was plenty to see and not nearly enough time to fit it all in. Notable highlights included the fabulous Fortunato twins Lizzie and Katherine on the first day, lot’s of lovely looks from Mina Perhonen as ever and some newbies to get very excited about too. With a packed schedule regular sustenance stops were a must, and the best meals were had at Bob’s Kitchen (Brunch, Lunch), Rino (Supper) and Rose Bakery (anytime!).
Lets not get ahead of ourselves though there is plenty to j’adore for Spring/Summer.
In the run-up to our exhibition of Hugo Yoshikawa’s work this week, our store window has had a makeover courtesy of Mr Yoshikawa’s fine penmanship and includes some of the artworks available for purchase. We hope you can join us for the official opening this Thursday evening from 6pm.

Whilst shooting our very clever and very beautiful model Kristina in our latest arrivals from shoe architect Megumi Ochi, she noted that the heels were reminiscent of Louis XIV’s. It turns out Louis had decreed that only those in Royal favour were permitted a red heel like the king himself, it showed you had made it in Court. By 1780 red heels had become a symbol of monarchist whim in revolutionary France, a pamphlet attacking Marie Antoinette was entitled Portefeuille d’un rouge (the wallet of a red heel). Our two tone courts would sit well in the court of the last Queen of France, as would Ochi’s regal almond slipper and at a push the more egalitarian noir sandal .
What worked for the Sun King works for us.
The latest children’s arrival is making us crave sunny days. Spring Summer promises to be stylish and playful with no compromise on quality!
Grocery shopping has been a real inspiration at Bobo Choses, we love large lemon, orange and tomato prints on onesies, tops and canvas bags. ESPno1 and Bellerose are as cool as ever. The style is urban, casual and laid back with interesting details that make us wish those pieces came in adult size. Cute prints from Morley are always a hit among the little ones! For parties and special occasions we have the most gorgeous dresses by Pero. And at last, Makie offers extremely well made clothes in natural tones with a splash of bright orange. Oh so desirable!
