This weekend we headed over to Hyde Park to soak up some sun (and admiring glances): beige melange lovin' in the London sunshine.
I will call this post 'sunshine melange' since to me this sums it up beautifully - a wonderful mix of the London sunshine and our Stokke Xplory with timeless beige melange textiles featured at some stunning Central London locations.
London in the sunshine with a Stokke Xplory - does life get better than this?
We are LOVING the new black and deep blue additions to the Stokke transport collection. Black pops and oozes with Stokke style, whilst deep blue is rich, distinguished and classic. The perfect additions to range.
Black and Deep Blue will be available across the stroller and accessories range in the following products, Stokke Xplory, Stokke Crusi, footmuff, changing bag, Stokke iziGo. In store from May 2014.
The first sight of sunshine and we are all of a frenzy about Xplory Summer Kits once again. The new grey yellow stripe addition to the collection has sparked mixed reviews since we shared photos a couple of weeks ago but I have to say that on seeing these up close, detailed pics, I think it’s growing on me!
We have one on order from Back in Action and will be giving it a full photographic review on a couple of Xplory colours, as soon as we can get our eager little hands on it.
If you are one of the many people we’ve seen enquiring where the new Grey Lemon Stripe Xplory Summer Kits is available in the UK, do give Back In Action a call.
We gave you an exclusive sneak peek of the new Deep Blue Stokke Xplory earlier this week and following the announcement on the official Stokke Facebook Page today of the new 'Favourites Collection', we've been scouring the internet for photos of the new colours...
Look what we found...
Black and Deep Blue New Stokke Colours
The colour difference between Dark Navy (which is being discontinued along with Beige) and the new Black seems to be very subtle. It may just be the screen colours but Dark Navy looks more black than new black to us!
As always, we will reserve judgement until we've had the opportunity to photograph the new colours ourselves.
What do you think? Which colours would you like to see in the range?
You know that we pride ourselves on being the first to bring you Stokke news and once again we have the scoop. This time we are talking about new 2014 stroller colours and rumour has it that next month there will be two new colours available across the stroller range, new deep blue and black.
Retailers have been dropping hints for week but in all honesty we weren't biting. Their suggestions were a little bit too close to the colours already out there to float our boats, but then today we found this on a Russian Instagram page.
New Stokke Deep Blue
The image isn't great due to an Instagram filter but I can feel it in my bones that this new deep blue will be luscious and beautiful. The same goes for black. I know that they have been striving for the perfect tone, so fingers crossed that this is it.
We all think we could come up with the perfect Xplory colour, I know I have five years worth of colours in my head and Emma, well she would settle for a subtle, beautiful grey. But what about you? What colour would your dream Stokke Xplory be?
On a bright, frosty morning in early March, Ellis had a photoshoot for a unique and very special photographic project, The Children of London 2014, in aid of Great Ormond Street Hospital. As part of the initiative, Ellis will feature as one of London children representing the beauty and diversity of our truly amazing city.
Of course, no special project would have been the same without our ubiquitous Stokke Xplory which came along for the ride and which may have sneaked into some of our behind the scenes coverage. See for yourselves.
