Tea Collection Fall 2008: Fjords, Forests and Daily Tea
If you routinely travel the world of children’s fashion by way of Tea Collection, grab your passport and make room for a stamp from Norway. A recent trip there led the designers at Tea Collection to craft their fall 2008 line, ‘Fjords and Forests.’ For the boys, expect lots of earth tones and blues in warm, cozy fabrics like pima cotton and herringbone twill. I especially like the Stallheim Fairisle Zip Pullover Sweater ($69), inspired by a Norwegian artisan’s blanket. For the girls, vibrant shades of plum and spruce dominate the landscape, like in the Fjord Jumper ($55) — beautifully done in a traditional Norwegian plaid — and in the funky, floral cowl necked Rasmussen Floral Knit Dress ($45).
If Norway isn’t your thing, be sure to check out the latest mix-and-match offerings in the Daily Tea collection. Available as individual pieces ($14-$29) and in gift-appropriate 3, 5 and 6-piece sets (including hats, blankets and more; $45-$125), all Daily Tea is suitable for everyday wear thanks to 100% interlock cotton, but with the detailing and globally-inspired touches that make it distinctively Tea.
Fjords and Forests, and Daily Tea are available now.
