It is no secret that Atsuyo et Akiko are hands down my favorite children’s accessory designers! I was excited to be invited to take a peek behind the scenes at their Atelier in Brooklyn! Joined by Akiko’s gorgeous teenage daughter Sora and Atsuyo’s ridiculously adorable twin daughters Rio and Jude, Tallulah and I were like kids in a candy store. They inspire children’s imagination! With Atsuyo’s backround in fashion and Akiko’s in Fine Art they are a dream team of sophistication and creativity! Their love for screen-printed images elevate everyday objects into somethng more meaningful and beautiful. To witness Akiko unravel metres of newly arrived gold sequined trimming -which has now magically morphed into glittering sequin star headbands and sequin watch bracelets-so AMAZING! They also have successful collaborations with numerous artists and designers -Walt Disney and Jess Brown Dolls are clear favorites of mine! I’m a big fan of Tallulah wearing their Mickey Mouse Tee shirt and Tutu this summer! I will certainly be spotted at Fort Greene’s Farmer’s Market with my J’Taime Brooklyn bag!
