Aarrekid Autumn Winter 12 - A Surface Pattern Dream!

I've been a fan of Finnish label Aarrekid for some time based on what I had seen online. I've written a couple of posts featuring the Aarrekid label, and yesterday I received a thank-you package with two pieces from the new Aarrekid Autumn-Winter 12 collection. I can say without an ounce of exaggeration that - now I have seen the real thing - I am smitten! I absolutely love this label. The garments exceeded my already high expectations.

The t-shirt and scarf I received are well made, and the organic cotton has a smooth, soft feel. The design itself, by artist Miia Kajaani  Piia Keto is so beautifully intricate; every inch is visually enticing. There is a wonderful balance of light and dark, and the coloured elements pop with great effect. The design has a large repeat and is packed with quirky characters and cute scenes. Elegantly drawn flora fill the gaps or frame the scenes beautifully. Wow, love it!
Here is a closer look at the design:

 My daughter is going to be one stylish little lady in her Aarrekid gear. Why not spoil your favourite little person with something from this unique label. You'll find this Autumn-Winter 12 loveliness at the Aarrekid website very soon. Trust me, you'll love it!
