The Pink House first came across Bon Tot when the super-cool kids' boutique ran a pop-up shop at Edinburgh's Fruitmarket Gallery last year. I was bewitched by the understated, gender-neutral kids' clothes and accessories on sale (a far cry from the insipid, this-is-for-boys, this-is-for-girls rubbish so many high street stores are currently pushing) and bought a grey-and-pink Tiny Modernism t-shirt for my then two-year-old son.
So when my editor friend at Stylist magazine asked if I'd heard of any cool independent boutiques worth a write-up, I immediately suggested Bon Tot. And when we discovered that owner Kristina and husband Graham had created their cutting-edge store's interior out of cardboard in just one week, both The Pink House and Stylist were won over. I brought The Pink House's creative director/photographer Susie Lowe on board to take the photos, and together we created this four-page feature for one of the UK's best loved women's magazines.
Since the article came out in December 2015, Bon Tot and The Pink House have become firm friends, and most recently collaborated on the kids' boutique's latest 2016 Look Book (click here for more info). We're also excellent customers, with the small Pink House Dwellers fully Bon-Totted from pullovers to plates. Here are a few of our favourite pieces...
1) The Milk Collective - Plush Cloud pillow
2) Love Frankie - Ninja Fox jumper
3) Belly Sesame/Tiny Modernism - Kai t-shirt
4) Buddy & Bear - Bunny egg cup
