When Tiia Vanhatapio presented her first collection in 2006, the response was universal acclaim for her range suited for the modern femme fatale. In a typically Scandinavia style twist, this was accompanied by Vanhatapio bebes, a designer apparel collection for babies.
Described by Tiia as 'Addams family meets super cool Nordic design' and inspired by her lifelong love affair with subculture and über feminine vintage atelier flair, the collection eschews normal cute baby styles for striking statements that manage to be adorable and edgy in equal measure.
At Nordic Kids we knew immediately that Vanhatapio bebes wasn't for everyone but it would most certainly have a home with us. We adore the way she has taken normal baby garments and put a new spin on them with interesting methods of folding, wrapping and fastening combined with bold colours and patterns.
Truly it's a label for babies with attitude and parents that can appreciate supremely tailored outfits. Just as long as you don't mind your little one outshining your own outfit then we recommend you take a look at Vanhatapio bebes.
