Sneak Peek: Autumn Winter 2018

Milk & Biscuits goes back to its country roots for their soon to launch Autumn/ Winter 2018 collection. Inspired by the style of the fabulous Land Girls and days spent working the land. Heritage fabrics and a colour palette of rich earth tones are updated with bold graphic patterns and the occasional calm cat and dependable dog. All cut using scrumptiously soft and gorgeous materials from brushed cottons to quilted overcoats with fun fake fur details. It’s time to grab your wellies and get your hands dirty in style.

For boys & girls from ages 2-13
The collection will launch at our retailers and online on the 10th of July.

Award Winning: SS18 ‘Get Fresh’

We’re all about getting fresh  this Spring/Summer. Lemon yellows, juicy oranges and apple green run riot across carefully cut classics. With frills, thrills and flowing dresses these are the perfect pieces for an endless summer. A combination of old school retro and luxury velvet’s and a hint of the 70’s thrown in for good measure we are perfectly weather ready. Our guest illustrator this season is Myeongju Kwak from South Korea. (@mengju ) She conjures up beautifully delicate leaves in dark greens and electric blues alongside the vibrant fruit prints she has created for us this season.

Whilst we presented the collection in Tokyo at Playtime – along with over 180 other brands, Milk & Biscuits won the Milk Japon Fashion Award for this collection. Loved our time in Tokyo and it really was the cherry on top of a great experience.

Better Together

As politicians and the media talk of walls and division, now more then ever we need to take a moment to celebrate each other, including our differences.  So – with a nod to the Eighties when the walls were coming down rather then going up we are excited to present our new Autumn/Winter collection.
We have leggings which are stirrup-ed and our sweatshirts are tasseled. We’ve played with volume and textures – no ruffle is too big, overcoats are oversized. These are statement pieces to be worn to be unique. The only clashes here are bold colours and contrasting fabrics. Instead, clasped hands bridge the divide and the children play better together.

New fabrics this season include luxury crushed velvet from Korea and double layer wool for extra cosiness as the chill descends. Our super sized overcoats are cut for comfort and to allow layers beneath. Cloaks and bombers will all help keeping your little ones safe and warm this winter.

The collection will launch on July the 26th.

Run away and join the Circus

We have been inspired by the colours and wonder of a nostalgic trip to the circus of yesterday-year for our Spring/Summer collection. Working with the wonderful artist, ceramicist and farmers daughter our guest illustrator –  Lucy Kirk has gifted us a riotous troupe of acrobats, trapeze artists and casual tigers. Alongside embroidered tattoo graphics and hugging tigers. These delightfully dry designs adorn denim jackets, swing dresses, sweatshirts and tees. Do take a look at the collaboration pieces below…

Sneak Peek: Autumn Winter 2016

This season we have dived into the quirky world of Wes Anderson. We love not only his unique visual style – but also the way his movies show the gravitational pull of family life in all of its dysfunctional glory. So for Autumn / Winter 2016 we take you to a colourful slightly surreal world, where vintage dress up meets buttoned-up prepsters.

Cosy padded cocoon coats, oversized quilted jackets and woolly hats will keep your little ones warm.While this season’s guest artist: Elies Thijs from the Netherlands will take you on a journey into dreamy blue and pink forest populated by magical hares.

The collection will launch mid-July, please email us for any further information
