Hello dear friends! I hope that your weekend has been very refreshing and relaxing. We have had nothing but the loveliest weather here—a mixture of sun and overcast—making it perfect for sitting indoors and out, and enjoying Summertime. It seems that our Summers going well into September, so we are counting on another month or so of beautiful weather.
But for now, onto today's topic: On several occasions over the past some months, nearing a year now, I have mentioned that I have been working away on something. Today, I am very excited to share the big news with you! We have just launched our company—an e-boutique especially for children!
Our plan began years and years ago, and came about because we believe it is important to nurture and envelope children's lives with love, dreams and imagination. Our search for items that encompassed such a spirit turned into a quest that brought us to develop a boutique that would fulfill the need and desire in Vancouver and across the globe. Items that are well considered and well made, that captured the beautiful spirit of children—their delight, surprise and exploratory nature.
In turn, our company, Leuie, brings together an exclusive collection of carefully chosen pieces especially with children in mind; a wonderful selection of items for the home and everyday living—from beautifully crafted leisure wear made in Paris and well made indoor shoes from Denmark, to whimsical, handmade décor items, one-of-a-kind vintage gifts, and charming luggage made in Spain…
With inspired designs that combine traditional care and European craftsmanship of a bygone era with the needs of present day, you will find an array of items that are entirely new to the country, and in some cases, North America. Perfect for infants through to teen years, the designs are truly special and unique—complete with an abundance of charm, stories and fond memories at the heart.
I invite you to visit Leuie's website, and discover the newly launched film, lookbook and e-boutique! I would love to know your thoughts, so please, don't be shy! But just before you visit, a little introduction to read: (after all, I don't want to give too much away before you see!)
As we savour the sun-filled, warm days of summertime, a beautiful story, the start of a magical and enchanting dream is revealed and begins to unfold…
Two children tucked in to their beds one summer evening close their eyes and drift off to sleep. In their own imaginations, they begin to dream of all that is to come. For the very next morning, they will pack their suitcases, leave their city life behind, and set off to join beloved relatives at the summer cottage… where days upon days of warm summertime adventures, and fond memories await…" —click to discover!
