Donna Wilson for Mamas & Papas

I was so surprised and happy to see this special edition Donna Wilson Urbo2 pushchair for Mamas & Papas at the Kind + Jugend trade show last week-end in Cologne. The Urbo2 is a deep forest green with a charming woodland fox print and great attention to the little details like the cuddly fox which made me smile. Donna's 10 Year Anniversary celebrations have been wonderful and this collaboration is another example of her marvellous talent.

Yaya Lala

These Brazilian shoes from London-based web store Yaya Lala are the most exquisitely made footwear I have seen in a long time. I caught sight of them on the wonderful blog Paul & Paula. They are like something out of the Elves and the Shoemaker, so beautifully made the shoemaker could hardly believe his eyes, 'neatly made with not one bad stitch in them'.
