KIND kidswear at Labour of Love
Labour of Love is a charming boutique in Islington pedaling a range of hard-to-get fashion brands and accessories for women. I have long loved this local shop, run by the delightful and impeccably dressed Francesca Forcolini. Now, for the first time ever Labour of Love will be stocking childrenswear. Yippppeeeee-di-do-dah! Forcolini is stocking a special one-off project from Kind, the Belgian label, formerly specialising in quirky knitwear for grown-ups. Kind's irreverent designs translate brilliantly onto children's clothing - the pieces are full of fun but have serious fashion credentials too. CLB is mad about the raspberry-hued elephant sleeved jumper, cheeky apron frocks and trompe l'oeil sailor cardis. Love is an understatement.
