My favourite colour? Neon. Vibrant. Cheerful.
Petit Bateau is one of favourite family brands. To be honest, it probably is France’s favourite family brand. You wear them as a child, you buy it as soon as you are pregnant. You trust the quality. You keep it preciously too – your grandchildren will probably wear it, the cotton is brilliant, will survive the 25-30 gap. You just know it. The colours won’t even have faded.
Stripes are iconic in the collection. So is the raincoat. We’ve had it in white, in pink but love it best in yellow. It brightens up everything! Let alone it’s easy to find the children in the crowd in that colour compared to navy blue. The lining is incredibly soft, super warm, the sleeves well closed at the wrist, not letting the cold in. The pockets are deep too – enough to carry lots of pebbles, shells, little treasures collected along the way. This is one of the items we ALWAYS have in our wardrobe.
