Oilily Autumn/Winter 2011 - Adventurous Russia

Oilily Autumn/Winter 2011 Collection - Adventurous Russia

The intricacy of the design and the rich colour palette of Oilily's Autumn/Winter 2011 children's collection is breathtaking. It is everything I have ever loved about Oilily, and more.

The theme, adventurous Russia, brings a wonderful sense of mystery to the collection. It has been well interpreted by the Oilily designers who have incorporated all kinds of secret and hidden surprises into the designs: a skirt with curtains behind which hides a czarina; a skirt that is worn as a dress with shutters that hides another czarina; for boys little spies have their own Russian passport, a secret pocket, and colourful medal appliqués in their clothes. Clever games can be played anywhere with secret coded language and a big chess board with chess pieces on the inside of one of the shirts.

The Russian influence is clear throughout. Warm winter jackets (some are reversible!), scarves, hand knitted caps, and even fake furs grace the collection. Intricate all-over prints contrasted with attractive plain fabrics, and exceptional attention to detail make this collection one of the most exciting and inspiring I have seen for some time.

With its striking colours, exquisite craftsmanship, and cute additions, there is no question that Oilily is designing with kids firmly in mind. It is not just about looking good - it is about having fun and adventure too. I can't imagine a single child who would not delight in wearing a piece from this playful collection.
