SOUS LA MER
'Sous la Mer' is a playful spring/summer collection for childrenswear inspired by ocean life. The handwritten French text adds a fun element, reminiscent of language learning materials for young children.
Inspired by artists including Charles Schulz and Dick Bruna, the collection features charmingly expressive animal motifs in saturated colours. Digitally designed for digital print, these sweetly humorous designs are suited to lively playtimes for exuberant little humans.
