........For some parts of the world anyway... Since the Philippines is a tropical country we never get the chance to play dress up with gorgeous trench coats, funky boots, and beautiful sweaters. So if you have the chance to spend an autumn vacation in a different country, you might as well want to really plan out your outfit! (I swear the next time we go to Japan I'm really wearing something more fashionable hahaha!) And of course when you're taking your little ones with you, that's extra fun dressing them up too!
One of the best places to start is H&M's All for Children Collection. Not only will you get really snazzy autumn wear for your kids, but you'd be doing it for a good cause as well!
H&M started their All for Children initiative with UNICEF back in 2009. They were able to raise $4.5-million donation helping children in poor communities such as southern India and Bangladesh. And it has already positively affected the lives of over one million children through education and development. So when you purchase one of these collections, 25% of sales will go to UNICEF in helping support education for less-fortunate children. A great way to give back during the holidays!
For the Little Girls
I like how the zipper of this jacket reaches up to the neck. It's sure to keep your kids nice and toasty during a cold autumn breeze!
For cat lovers! Pink Turbo will like this. Combines her two interests: Shiny and cats.
Pretty pink fluffy vest!
Oooh! Fuzzy coat never goes out of style!
A pretty pink sweater. I'm no fashionista but I imagine this would look good with white leggings and cream boots!
This jacquard-knit poncho is fab!
It has a hood too! Don't you just love the pattern? The pattern was decorated to resemble a folkloric owl.
For Little Boys
Glow-in-the-dark terry sweatshirt with bat wings. Pretty cool huh? Looks like Batman's sweater. And it glows in the dark too!
I think this one is the reversible blazer with a reflective insect print
I love the flaps and the collar on this one. Looks cool! The Pickiest Eater's type of jacket. Too bad for him it's for kids haha!
They have bubble jackets too!
The porcupine hat is a bit too much for me. But I love the bonnet on the right
And this cute head warmer with fuzzy ears!
Kids will have a blast with these gorilla gloves and foot warmers!
Cute crocky boots will help you easily spot your little ones from a crowd!
I'm sure you noticed that the overall theme is based on a fun forest adventure! Everything from the texture, colors, and prints were made to reflect woodland flora and fauna, which helps add a good play for imagination for kids!
“We wanted to present a totally new way of dressing up – one with style as well as imagination. It’s great that such fun pieces will raise funds for such an important cause,” says Emilia Mravec, designer, New Development.
This year's innovative collection is a great way to look fashionable, but at the same time is an amazing way to play forest dress-up! They're available at selected H&M stores worldwide, including of course, Manila branch.
