After the launch of the very first collection by The Animals Observatory, most shops were sold out within just a few days! However, if you happen to be lucky enough… there are a few pieces left to be found!
With original prints and cool cuts inspired by 1970’s graphics, Henry Moore sculptures, Elaine Constantine photographs, Barragán architecture, Le Corbusier, and even Charlotte Perriand furniture, we are big fans of this original children’s brand. The Animals Observatory also known as T.A.O. is known for their “timeless garments for the children of our children.” Some of my favorite pieces in the opening collection include the Villa Arpel sweatshirt and the Bomar Pluto playsuit. Within the collection is the T.A.O. WORKERS line which is a wardrobe full of play clothes inspired by uniforms and trades. It is high quality, everyday wear with an extra touch of design including wide cut overalls which look amazing over any top and ample pocket dresses that are ideal for wearing with or without layers to show your own personality.
I am already a big fan of several items in this brand’s collection. I also appreciate their slogan, “Be a good animal, true to your instincts” which mixes just right with my kids’ everyday lifestyle.
