AS WE GROW 2016 Spring Summer Kid's Collection

The theme for ss2016 revisits the the sea and pickniks held in small sea villages and a time when people dressed up on Sundays. This is generated through the colours and the laid back feeling of the textiles. The use of orange comes from the icelandic midnight summer sun and the blue color from the glaciers, blue skies and icelandic fresh air. The rich mountain landscape continues to inspire us in the knits. Simplicity, purity and ease are the key words here. Photos: Anthony Bacigalupo.

Design March recap

3 weeks ago we took part in Design March here in Reykjavik. We thought long and hard about what to do this time. We could have displayed our fall 2015 presentation but we really wanted to do something else. The idea came up to have some artists and designers take an As We Grow garment and give it a new lease of life. In the end ten people took part, they all got a cream coloured item and were told they could do anything they wanted. The results were great and we are very thankful to those artists, they were such an inspiration to us.

"Every year, the United Nations Women's Guild in Geneva, in collaboration with the Permanent Missions accredited to the United Nations, the Geneva government authorities and business community organizes an International Bazaar and Lottery to raise funds for disadvantaged children around the world".
The Icelandic booth drew a lot of attention. There you could find childrenswear, salt, books and history maps.
"Over the years, the Bazaar has become the premier event in the international community. The UNWG Bazaar attracts more than 6 000 visitors and raises approximately 300 000 CHF. International arts, crafts and foods stalls sell their wares and lottery tickets are on sale with over 200 fabulous prizes to be won."

New arrivals

New styles and colors of As We Grow children's clothing have now been beautifully displayed in stores and we couldn't be prouder!

This autumn/winter we are inspired by quality time spent with the family, going through old photos of nordic style and illustrated 70´s childrens´ books. There is a great presence of natural colours such as bisque, grey, dark brown and pale brown - with touches of strong colours in dark orange, fern green and sunshine yellow.

The focus continues to be on natural and soft styles and to produce well-made, long-lasting clothing in natural garments, Alpaca, the finest of fibres and Pima Cotton. Where workers receive fair wages, so they can send their children to school and significantly improve their often basic living conditions.

here are pictures of beautifully displayed as we grow by the staff of mýrin.
