Sustainable Swedish childrenswear brand Newbie has an amazing programme of events in its King’s Road concept store this summer
Newbie first opened in the UK last October and has quickly become renowned for its beautifully designed clothing for little ones, which feature hand-drawn illustrations and are made from sustainably sourced organic cotton.
In addition to the brand’s four permanent stores—located in Richmond, Kingston, Westfield London and Bluewater—Newbie has opened a larger pop-up concept store on the King’s Road for the duration of the summer.
The King’s Road store isn’t just home to the Newbie collections, but features partner Scandinavian brands, which we’re dying to get our hands on. Kid’s Concept, Meraki and Elodie Details are all stocked in the King’s Road store and are Scandinavian brands with a similar focus on sustainability and beautiful design touches.
Newbie has gone one step further with this store though, creating a dedicated experience space, which is specifically for events and discovery for little ones and parents alike. The area has been designed to bring the collections to life and will continue to evolve and change throughout the time the pop-up is opened.
Newbie is committed to building a community of like-minded parents and this experience space has been created with this in mind, alongside a complimentary events programme offering everything from advice on nutrition for new mums, to making plastic-free parenting choices, to photography of your little ones.
Here’s our pick of the best events Newbie is hosting this summer, but check out newbiestore.com for the full programme:
