In the loop... with Samantha Valentine
Tell us a little bit about you...
Hi, I'm Sam, Co- Founder of dotte (pronounced dotta!) and Mum to Lotte (pronounced Lotta!)
When you look in your kids wardrobe, what brands do you see?
Bobo choses, Zara, Mini Rodini, Beau Loves, Next, TAO...
What's your favourite piece?
Without a doubt the Beau Loves bomber!
And...what's your kids favourite piece/s? The thing they'd always pick.
Currently, it's anything pink, or "pretty" as Lotte says, or flowers. She still loves her birthday dress, from August. Her style is forever changing. She's a super girly girl at the moment. I let her lead. Last year it was dinosaurs, and cars, this year is sparkles, flowers, and shiny things. I obviously buy her clothes, but I try to go with, and be inspired by what she is finding joy from in that current moment. It's curated edit you could say.
What's the most useful or best brand for play?
I honestly think Next have fantastic quality products. They don't break the bank, and they are so unbelievably durable. I dont mind sending her off to nursery in leggings from Next, they have some great styles- leopard prints, polkas, stripes. They wash up beautifully and manage to remain soft and don't fade!
