I'm really proud to launch our little pre-summer treat - Retro Rainbow! This print is all about sunshine, happiness, bright colours and blowing winter clouds away.
Designing this range just filled me full of joy and it's such a happy print too - a redesign of my original Rainbow print that has been much loved by mamas from original purchase to loving hand-me-downs.Claudia Pink Rainbow Dress, Sizes in 2Y - 8YRosie Set, Sizes in 1Y - 4Y (with free shorts)PLUS Knee High Socks in Rainbow Print too!All are available August 15th
I have to admit that I'm beyond thrilled that the monochrome triangles of a couple of years ago seems to have finally gone away. Not that I don't love graphic designs and triangles too, but I LOVE colour and I love the joy that it brings to little ones.
And much like unicorns and cake, rainbows just seem to put a smile on everyone's faces. Including my own. Yet another range where I ask myself "Why didn't I make one in MY size?!".Claudia Red Rainbow Dress, Sizes in 2Y - 8Y available August 15th
I'm going to start with the little "Egg" which is what we've nicknamed our rompers this season. I made them quite oversized and roomy because what I like in summer is a lightweight, oversized tee to let the cool breezes in and that I feel comfy and cosy in too.
Why have we nicknamed it the Egg? Well... I'll let you take a guess!Rainbow Playsuit, Sizes in 6M - 3Y available August 15th

These two girls together are SUNSHINE in motion - how sweet are they? Just getting a bit distracted here :)
Rosie is one of those pieces that you're going to love to have in your daughter's wardrobe I'm sure. The great thing is that it's a BOGOF (haha I have to laugh because that's what my friend calls her twins "Buy One Get One Free" Bogof!). You get a beautiful swing top (or dress) tunic style with fluttery sleeves and ties at the back to nip it in and you ALSO get a pair of our super popular little Sugar Shorts. Mix-and-Match, wear them together, do whatever you like because they're yours and they're designed to be comfy and fun!

Blossom is a piece that I repeat almost every summer and I love to make this piece in many different prints. This little skirt has an insert bloomer and generous elastic waist (if you want to put a 3Y in our 2Y go for it, it'll be a bit shorter but it'll fit).
The way this skirt MOVES and ruffles and just looks so adorable, it's a great piece, I'm thrilled with how happy it makes mamas (and yeah, you know who you are, those who are collecting every design). And of course... trimmed in contrast print and the addition of a bow. Why not?Blossom Rainbow Skirt with Bloomer, Sizes in 6M - 24M available August 15th
Don't forget your Flutter Tee - 10 years on and going strong! I'll never forget our first sample and saying, "those ruffles make our bubba look like a butterfly" in the photoshoot. So of course, "Flutter Tee". The ruffles are edged in lace and, because I love mix-and-match I think that you could put ANY of our tees with this skirt (or Sugar Shorts above).

And hats... Always a hat in Aussie Summers and ours are the BOMB. With toggles and ties to keep them ON and with an oversized but lined brim so you can get full sun coverage and also push it up at front if you need to, they are the best (I think). And on this point I am just going to sing our praises because we work really hard as a design team to make sure that we are always updating and improving and our hats are always in our minds. How to make them fantastic, because even though there are Rainbows outside, it doesn't mean that the sunshine has gone away!Rosie Set, Sizes in 1Y - 4Y (with free shorts)
And finally, two things I love, dressing up and accessories - so check out our funny, fun little mermaid tail! I know, it's not a rainbow but I could NOT help myself.
Tie it around your (oops, your daughter's) waist and let her imagination be free!

So, be happy, be joyful, be a bright rainbow and please give me your feedback on this range - it's special to me and I loved creating it for your daughters.
Oh and P.S. something else I'm INCREDIBLY proud to let you know is that we still give a piece of "Oobi Magic" whether that's a dress, or baby swaddles, or toys, hats etc. as gifts to an Aussie Girl in Need for EVERY piece sold. Every purchase of Retro Rainbows are going to make some lives brighter and we'll donate in your honour for everything sold.
