Swan Song

Teal swan dress

Hi everyone, I'm hope you're as excited as we are for 'Swan Song' our sweet little swan print, hand coloured and hand printed with garments made to make you and your little one smile. 

Swan Song is coming in two parts, but those parts form one story - a magical, whimsical and childlike one. Thanks for your patience with part two, we kinda got carried away with the range and it is extremely time consuming to produce, especially coats and homewares - and I don't have an 'off' switch when it comes to design!

Don't fear, we will do a 'free shipping' day for part two so that you don't have to worry about that! 

Swan Song collection

By the way, this print was designed in collaboration with designer Maria Art and we are pretty excited about this fairytale story... We love to collaborate with young designers and create something truly special for us all.

PART ONE

DAHLIA DRESS

Swan dress
3Y-8Y

Dahlia is Oobi all-over. Amazing touches that I believe set us apart and show our skills in construction and also in the loving care we put into the added extra details. The lace is 100% cotton crochet, hand-dyed by dipping to ensure that the colours match the print perfectly. 

3Y-8Y

Dahlia is beautifully made, and will look as good on the inside as the outside. It's got a zipper back that goes through the seam to ensure that your little one feels comfortable and so that it's easy to wear. At the shoulders we've added a little flutter... because that's like the fluttery beat of our hearts.

Dahlia dress
3Y-8Y

We're loving Dahlia for girls of all ages so created this lovely up to 12 years. The Chelsea jacket also goes to 12 and looks AMAZING with the Dahlia dress for a complete look.

CHELSEA JACKET

3Y-12Y

We released another version of the Chelsea Jacket last year and it was an instant sell-out. We're absolutely thrilled to bring it back as there's not a single one of us Oobis that doesn't have a denim jacket for all seasons. And they're just the coolest and most practical pieces. Light enough for summer and spring, snuggly enough for autumn and winter.

Chelsea swan jacket

This season we've used swans as our trims and on the back, an extra treat! We've cut out little swans and embroidered them on the back - so cute! 


It's a lucky dip which colour swan you get - they're all different but they're all gorgeous.


Chelsea also goes to age 12 years. We are really loving this for tweens.

JANUARY SKIRT


Well... our tweens and little ones are well and truly covered with this fantastic skirt! Another piece that we've created up to 12 years and we've made it to match so perfectly with our knitwear and also our Chelsea denim jacket. Such a great look!

3Y-12Y

Sweet little heart shaped pockets and bow make this pretty little skirt so special, but the elastic waist and easy-wear style make it a piece that your little one will love to wear for comfort and, well... pockets! Can't beat those :)


Pop one of our divine Sweetheart tees or gorgeous cardigans with January for pure sweetness and happiness. 


SAGE DRESS 


Sage reminds us of the most perfectly retro little girl's designs from another era. The shape is generous and smock-like, so breezy and with so much fabric - we never skimp! 



The front panel has sweet little button features and piping for a little treat and at the wrists there's a very soft and gentle elastic to give the sleeves more volume (and so that they can be pushed up if need-be). We're pretty delighted with this style.


Again, this is the kind of style that we're known for, generous, beautifully constructed and hand-printed. It's a real treat.


PAIGE DRESS & SET PLUS MORE FOR YOUR BABIES

Teal swan
6M, 12M, 24M

Paige as a set is a little shortie style with matching nappy covers for those little crawlers and toddlers - it's perfect with tights and the length ensures that little legs don't get caught up in fabric! 
6M, 12M, 24M

Size 2Y (our biggest size in this style, not shown, only sets are shown) is just above the knee length and is such a sweet 'little girl' style that we just smile whenever we see it.
Paige is so sweet, it's fully smocked at the front and has a zipper at the back and long ties (really just for effect and because they look so pretty!) but if your little one is petite, they are perfect for tightening the sweet style. 

BONNET TEAL SWAN
ONE SIZE

Delicious little bonnets complete the story but will be in Part Two. They're so cute, they're worth the wait for sure!

BONNET BLUSH SWAN

BANDANA BIB BLUSH SWAN

BANDANA BIB TEAL SWAN

And for babies and toddlers there are the sweetest little bandanna bibs on their way soon, plus the Minnie romper that you can pair with tights and our Sweetheart tees for winter, and go easy-breezy, with nothing underneath for summer - so practical! 

MINNIE ROMPER TEAL SWAN
6M & 12M

PLUS... DON'T FORGET!

All the gorgeous socks and tights that you might already own plus our divine knitwear. Every piece has been designed to work harmoniously and to just 'work'.


Whether that's the unexpected treat of caramel warming up these pieces (Willow cardigan and Caramel Tights) or the bright sunny pop of mustard yellow (cardigans, tights and socks) for something bold and unique.

Purple socks

Or how about taking another look at lilac? We're absolutely crazy about the way that lilac is working with these pretty pieces - or soft and sweetly perfect pink.

Maxine blue cardigan
2Y-9Y

It's exciting too that I've matched the blue in the pink swan print to be exactly the same as the blue of our Pom Pom cardigan and our new blue Maxine - and how about those tights and socks?

And of course there's sweet accessories like crowns, scrunchies, Bridgette Hats, bandanna bibs, headscarves, pom-pom ears and more - all fun, and all designed for a little bit of magic.
Some accessories will be released in part one, and some in part two... which leads me to...


PART TWO


WILLOW DRESS

WILLOW DRESS SWAN
3Y-12Y

Willow is such a great concept and it's such a cute dress - yep, it's a dress! Looks like a skirt and tee but actually, it's a dress that's been cleverly constructed to look like a set. 

WILLOW DRESS SWAN
3Y-12Y

With ruffly, double layers, bound in contrast fabric (aaaaaalllllll the details, right?) and a hand-dip-dye top to match perfectly, it's a lovely piece for your little one. So much so, that it makes you want to jump for joy!

3Y-12Y

P.S. How good is Swans with Lilac tights and socks? It's an unexpected treat to know that our colours are so harmonious! 

QUILTS AND HOMEWARES

SWAN SONG BUNTING

I'm so excited by our homewares range this season and especially all the attention to detail. For example, the little cut-out swans for our amazing new bunting, and, if you look closely, each panel of the quilt with a swan has been cut precisely so that they all have a little face. No 'bulk' cutting or laser cutting here - we design for longevity and for you to pass on these heirlooms for the children of your children to adore too.

SWAN SONG CUSHION BLUSH SWAN

There are quilts in three sizes, pillow cases, double-sided cushions, a magical reading nook tent (or bed canopy) plus the cutest little swan mobile to look at for hours...

SWAN SONG HOMEWARE


Best of all, I've re-released a very favourite print (look closely) with tiny little roses...


PADDINGTON COAT:

Paddington pink coat

PADDINGTON BLUSH SWAN COAT
2Y-8Y

Our Paddington Coat is a timeless and classic design, made to grow with your little one. This heirloom statement piece has turn-up cuffs and is generous in the body, meaning that your little one can wear it now, next year, and, like some of our customers, for years to come.

PADDINGTON BLUSH SWAN COAT
2Y-8Y

Just keep rolling those sleeves down because it's not just lined, it's FULLY lined in the body and also the sleeves. Amazing. I designed it so that the sleeves are a bit 'too long' and are folded up so you can see the lining. But, as your little one grows, just roll them down for years of wear. 

PADDINGTON BLUSH SWAN COAT
2Y-8Y

It's fully lined too so that there are NO itchies. The wool will keep your daughter warm, but she won't feel it against her skin. Only pure, 100% cotton.

I don't know what I can say about this gorgeous, theatrical dress that can't be said from these amazing photos! This dress is EVERYTHING. So bold and so much fabric, so fun like a cabaret or a tightrope walker - just so much theatre and drama. And why not? Life is all about celebrating the little and big things and Lola is a dress that's all about that! 

KENZIE DRESS

KENZIE DRESS BLUSH SWAN
2Y-8Y

KENZIE DRESS TEAL SWAN
3Y-12Y

We love a jersey cotton dress and we know you and your daughters do too. Kenzie is so sweet, soft jersey with a swingy style. It's comfy and cosy but with our brilliant and bold swan print you'd never guess! It is a great dress for tweens and goes up to size 12Y. 
It's also got the cutest little half-moon pockets lined with polkadots - an unexpected little treat for your little girl to discover!

2Y-8Y

KENZIE DRESS TEAL SWAN
3Y-12Y

It's the perfect piece for layering as it won't get crushed under coats and cardigans and as the weather gets warmer, it can be worn on its own on a cool evening. 

 

 

So here's Part One and Part Two and we hope that you love what you see! 

We're excited to launch on Thursday the 9th of May 2019 (Part One) with the release date for Part Two coming soon.

Once again, Part Two will launch with a Free Shipping Day so that you don't have to worry about picking up the pieces you want now, and later too without missing out.

Hope you love it, don't forget to comment below and let us know what you think! We love your feedback!

Like the Harper dresses, I love the Willow dress for the jersey top and the fancy bright skirt. It’s a lot more wearable for everyday play and great for layering.

All the Swan Collection is adorable!. Thanks for putting so much effort and hard work in every single piece. My favourite ones are Teal and Blush Skirt and Willow dress swan. Does this dress come in pink or also in teal colour?. Thanks :)
